Citra Mellow is a special beer. The team and I have been on a hunt for the last few weeks to gather a handful of certain "special" beers from around the Greater Houston area, and Citra Mellow was on that list. (More info on why it's special soon.) We got word that Galveston Island Brewing had started canning Citra Mellow, and the day the cans were available, we made a drive down to Galveston for a couple 6 packs....

8th Wonder Brewery did the city justice with Hopston. It's a TX IPA that's light on the tongue, but not light on flavor. I really dig 8th Wonder for their creativity - not only in the beers themselves, but in their names and artwork. Hopston's no different.

Fresh Nugs has a cleeeeean flavor - man it's so good. The flavor starts off bright and crisp. Since the news of the Karbach sellout, this beer is going to be a bit harder to find. Many local bars that specialize in local beers are saddened by the news and have all but dumped their Karbach kegs. Despite all the bad press, I wrote about these beers before they sold out, and people that don't know much about craft, might not know if we don't tell them....

Everybody had something to say about the Karbach sellout, and we thought it’d be thoughtful to cull them all together for you to scroll through as you drank that last Hopadillo or Mother in Lager you just grabbed this weekend. We searched the interwebs high and low to find all this stuff found most of it. Naah, that's a lie. Most of it came from...
