Brew News – This Week’s Highlights

Hey there everyone! Here's an overview of some of the beer-related news you may have missed in the last week. Beer proof kicks, for the good of beer, easier to get beer in georgia, recycled beer, beer protest, hurricane harvey.

AB InBev’s Rocky Relationship With Craft Beer

U.S. News recently published an article explaining that AB InBev employees have access to facilities allowing them to small-batch brew their own beers. As part of team building exercises, groups of employees compete to create the tastiest beers in the "Star Shop Brewery" facilities.

Beer Review – Saint Arnold Lawnmower

If you live in, or have visited, the State of Texas and like beer, odds are you have come across Saint Arnold Brewing Company. Based out of Houston, Saint Arnold has developed a wonderful reputation for brewing awesome beer. In the past few weeks, I had tried their 5 O'Clock Pils and Summer Pils. Time and again, I received advice to try out their Lawnmower Kolsh, so when I saw a bottle of it at my local H-E-B I had to pick it up.

Beer Review – Conspiracy Theory IPA

One of my earliest reviews was of a beer called Bombshell Blonde. I had picked it up by happenstance, building a six pack at Central Market and looking to round out after choosing five. I was initially drawn to the clever design of the can (branding counts guys!) and figured, what do I have to lose? Well, what I found that day was a wonderful brewery based out of Conroe, TX, whom I had never heard of but one that made excellent beer. Bombshell Blonde was absolutely delicious, and as I had no prior expectations, it was truly serendipitous. So when I was prowling the craft beer isle of my local Total Wine and more, and I found a can of Southern Star's Conspiracy Theory IPA, I knew I would have to try it.

Beer Review – Saint Arnold Summer Pils

And here we are. The final full review of the six-beer competition that was Battle of the Beers - Summer Brews. This one is very much the traditional summer-style pilsner beer. This is in no way a bad thing. Light, crisp and refreshing pilsner style beer can be a God-send on a 100+ degree summer day in Texas.

Beer Review – Devil’s Backbone

Having now lived in the great state of Texas for a little over six years, Real Ale Brewing has cemented itself as one of my favorite breweries. From the first time I tried their Fireman's Four, I have been pleasantly surprised by each of their beers. Devil's Backbone, a tripel, is quite possibly the best of a great cast of beers from this Blanco based brewery.

Beer Review – Silver and Black IPA

Given the borderline holy status of the Spurs, silver and black (and sometimes the old school "fiesta" logo colors) are all over this city. For this reason, it is no surprise at all that Branchline Brewing Co. would build a liquid tribute to the five-time NBA Champions. Yet again, I have to give props to my brother-in-law for introducing me to this beer, as I had never heard of it until he handed me a tallboy.
