Posted on 11 December 2015 by Admin - Mike Cortez

This week in, The Brew! We are getting close to the holidays and that means the new year is just around the corner but before we start looking forward to 2016 in the coming weeks we have enough to look forward to this week. This week, we see what brewery is hosting a vulgar event in the suburbs of Houston, we see what other Houston area brewery is celebrating 5yrs, we see what north Texas brewery is celebrating 1 year and lastly, we now have a store where you can pick up a signed copy of Beer Lover’s Texas. We have setup a book signing in Houston coming up in January so stay tuned for more information coming soon. Check it out now in this weeks edition of, The Brew!


Houston – While many are feeling festive for the upcoming holidays, signing tired Christmas carols, decorating and awaiting Santa Claus, something darker is coming. In the spirit of Germanic folklore, Brash Brewing Company is organizing a Krampus Krawl though Sugar Land’s Town Center. If you are not familiar with Krampus, he is the opposite of Santa. While Santa rewards the good boys and girls, Krampus takes the bad kids and eats them. Don’t worry, for beer loving fans this Krampus Krawl will feature a special firkins of Brash Brewing’s Vulgar Display of Power at each stop along the crawl. The event kicks off this Saturday at 2pm and attendees are encouraged to dress in your most vulgar Krampus costumes. Click here for more info.

No Label

Katy – Time flies when you are having fun and the great folks at No Label Brewing are proud to be celebrating 5yrs this weekend. To kick off the celebration they are hosting a party at the brewery with dinner, live music and of course great beer. Today they announced that the event is sold out so if you decided to wait to buy tickets at the door, you are out of luck. For those that chose not to procrastinate they are going to be in for one heck of a night. They have not released the beer list but they did just install a new tap wall with 42 taps so we can only expect a stellar line up to mark the occasion. Along with their 5th anniversary, No Label has some new beer releases worth checking out including their Hop Solo Series of beers Galaxy, Orbits and Calypso; as well as the very limited release of their Perpetual Peace which is a Wee Heavy that has been aged in Old Forrester barrels for 5 months. We would like to say congratulations to our friends at No Label on all their hard work and wish them continued success going forward.


Fort Worth – This weekend Panther Island Brewing Company is ready to celebrate their 1st year in business. They are celebrating at the brewery with an ugly Christmas sweater party, live music and beer. Attendees will have a chance to take some of sweet swag and other special giveaways.

They will have their core year round releases along with some very special releases including a limited release of bourbon barrel aged beers. Tickets start at just $10 so be sure to get your tickets now before they sell out. Click here for tickets and information.
