Posted on 20 August 2015 by Admin - Mike Cortez

This week in, The Brew! We took a couple weeks off to decompress but we are back this week with great news from the Texas brewing community. This week, we talk about the big book signing event coming up on Friday in Austin, we talk about a funky little beer festival going on this weekend in Houston and we learn about a new brewpub that will be opening soon in Houston. Check it out now in this week’s edition of, The Brew!


Austin – The time has finally come, the “Beer Lover’s Texas” book has been selling online and at book stores across the state but this Friday I will be hosting the first book signing at BookPeople in Austin. The event will take place this Friday at 7pm. Come out to hear me talk about the journey across Texas visiting all of the breweries, brewpubs and craft beer bars mentioned in the book. Of course I will be bringing along my friends with Rahr & Sons as well as Infamous Brewing Company to pour samples of their great beer. Please click here for more information.

Houston – This weekend Houston is going to get a little funky thanks to our friends with the Drink of Ages radio show. Host Jon Denman is organizing the beer festival dedicated to wild sour and farmhouse style ales. Attendees will get to pucker up with over 65 rare and specialty beers from both local Texas breweries and beyond. Tickets are still available but this is a 21+ only event. The Journey Agents will be taking to stage to funk the crowd up. For tickets and more information, please click here.


Houston – This week Houston Chronicle writer Ronnie Crocker broke the news about a new brewpub to be opening soon in the Heights neighborhood of Houston. It will be located in the former El Cantina Superior and will soon reopen as a new brewpub with veteran brewer Erik Ogershok (Real Ale) taking on the role as the brewmaster. The new brewpub will also feature an in-house butcher shop as well as a pizzeria. Aside from the great beers we can expect from Ogershok, the new brewpub will also feature guest taps to sell other local beers. Delicious Concepts, the group behind the new brewpub have not released the name of the brewpub but they expect to release more information by the end of the month. We will definitely keep you posted as more information comes available.

As always, if you’re looking to get out this weekend we suggest you visit a local brewery, don’t forget that we have a list of all of the breweries near you so head over to the Breweries and Brewpubs page and go support your local brewers.
