This week in “The Brew”, The holidays are here and many are packing into shopping malls to find the perfect gift. The holidays are a are stressful time and you can either choose to sit in traffic, fight strangers for parking spots and spend hours waiting in check out lines or you can just head to your local brewery grab a beer and pick up some pretty sweet swag. From t-shirts and caps to growlers and glassware, you can find the perfect gift without all of the added stress, throw in a few bombers and you’ll be sure to be the best gifter this year. Here are just a few of the cool things we came across that you can pick up for the craft beer lover in your life. For more ideas be sure to check out your local brewery.

The 7th Annual Saint Arnold One Pot Showdown is coming up on January 26th but now is the time to sign up and compete. The One Pot Showdown is a charity event held in the parking lot of Saint Arnold Brewery in Houston. Teams sign up and go head to head cooking up some pretty impressive dishes while including Saint Arnold beer as an ingredient. Do you think you have what it takes? This year the event will benefit the Houston nonprofit organization Kids’ Meals. If you’re interested in competing you better sign up soon, spots usually fill up pretty quick.

Jester King Brewery in Austin will be releasing a new beer. Ambrée will debut at the brewery this weekend along with the 3rd blend of their very popular Atrial Rubicite. Ambrée is a 6.4% ABV French Flanders inspired farmhouse ale. Ambrée is a dry, tart, naturally conditioned amber ale fermented and matured with dozens of different strains of brewers’ yeast, native wild yeast, brettanomyces yeast, and souring bacteria. Jester King put a lot of time and patience in creating this new ale by letting it ferment for three and a half months. I can expect there to be quite a turn out at the brewery this week for the first release. I suggest you get there early before they run out.

Lastly we will be taking the rest of the year off to work on some website maintenance and spend the holidays with our family. We would like to wish you all a safe happy holidays and a happy New Year. 2013 was a big year for Texas beer and we can only imagine that 2014 is going to be even bigger. This is Texas so go big or go home. Thank you to everyone that has supported us and the Texas brewing scene this year. May we share a drink with all of you in the new year.
