I have been thinking about this thread for a LONG time, so here goes.
I really like Beer. I LOVE good beer. I like Whiskey and Rum too...
I started brewing my own Beer in 1996ish. I started kegging my own beer in 2000.
With Life and kids, I do more buying than building beer, but hopefully that will change this year.
I would like to harvest a discussion of YOUR local beers that you like and maybe others across the country can sample those fine offerings.
Spoetzel Brewing Company "Shiner Bock" and St. Arnold's Brewing Company are two of the Locals in the Houston area, but there are tons in Texas, but not as many as you would think.
Texas ranks like 25th on the per capita list of Craft Brewers. We still have about 19 slated to open this year, which should help push us closer to the top.
If you want to post your favorite beer, please do the following:
1. Post a picture of the bottle/can.
2. Post a picture of it poured into a glass.
3. Give us an impression of the beer:
Appearance, Aroma, First Sip(initial impression/sensation), Mouthfeel(How does the beer feel in your mouth), Finish(what do you taste after you swallow the beer)
4. Please give us the full name of the Beer and it's birth(where it was brewed)
I will post some examples tomorrow.
Besides Beer stories and any general Cool stuff about beer, don't post pictures or comments about anything else please.
BTW, I collect Lone Star Beer Collectibles (Pre-1990)
