Texas Craft Brews

7 Jul

My Uncle Lee just got back last week from his bird expedition in Texas and brought back some Texas craft brews for us to try. I don’t know much about the beer so i’ll offer what I thought about each of the brews. He said each pack is probably around $8 for 4 to 6 beers.

Karback Brewing Weiss Versa from Houston, Texas: This one was one of my favorites. It was light and fruity.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company Icon Amarillo Hefe from Houston, Texas: Lee said it was the oldest micro brewery in Houston. It was a little hoppier than i’d usually pick in a brew but still pretty good.

Independence Brewing Stash IPA from Austin, Texas: IPA’s are not my favorite and this one was very bitter for my liking.

No Label Brewing Company Ridgeback Ale from Katy, Texas: It had a carmel taste and was smooth and rich, very refreshing.

Southern Star Brewing Company Buried Hatchet Stout from Conroe, Texas: I enjoy stouts but this one was a little bitter for me.

Real Ale Brewing Company Devil’s Backbone Abbey Style Ale from Blanco, Texas: This is a Belgian style tripel, sweet and smooth with medium hops. Lee said it was made with rock candy that they also make in house.
