In defiance of those archaic brewing guidelines, our beers are cathedrals to unlikely elements. Ambitious and boundary-pushing, ingredients stem from the kind of inspiration that strikes when soul-soaking humidity, 100 degree temperatures and instruments fit for a science lab come together. Expect mysteries like time travel and the Blue Whale song to reveal themselves with every pour.
Real dudes drink pink
Who in their right mind brews with flowers? We do. Pink beer? Hell yes. The old monks may be turning in their graves
Fine Print:ABV: 6%
Look for a big floral nose, a tart citrus mouthfeel, and a bone dry coriander finish
Christmas in a Glass
Remember stocking caps and frigid snowflake-filled winters? We don’t either. Texas is hot, but beer shouldn’t be. For the holidays, we’ve created a beer bouquet that tastes like a crisp and zingy exclamation point, brisk as the wind off a lake against the pitch black backdrop of a Russian imperial stout. Festive, hearty and an innoculent against a pretend winter chill, expect our Christmas in a glass to have a little extra “ho, ho, ho.”
Fine Print:ABV: 10%
sweet, creamy, slightly roasty stout with big nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves on the nose. Surprisingly easy-going mouthfeel.
All for Rice's Honor
We brewed this beer to celebrate Rice's Centennial. This beer has the ultimate secret ingredient: trees from Rice's campus. We called up the tree team at Rice & recalimed wood from the Live Oaks around campus, then aged this beer on them.
It's a Red Ale base (in honor of Rassul's dorm), with rice hulls in the mash and centennial hops in the boil.
Fine Print:ABV: 7%
Hop-forward citrusy nose, with the oak's tannins & vanilla notes rounding out the mouthfeel and finishing strong.
Smoke on the Bayou
A song only our great city can sing
We set out to craft a beer that could only be made in Houston - something that couldn't be replicated anywhere else on the planet, even in a laboratory
We smoked our malt at Beaver’s, Goode Company and Rockwell’s Tavern up in Cypress, and blended those malts as the base for a strong scotch ale. Houston’s BBQ scene is literally infused in the malt of this beer.
Fine Print:ABV: 9%
Look for huge caramel, brown sugar, molasses & toffee flavors in the mouthfeel. Then the smoke subtly cuts the sweetness with a savory balance on the finish
A Collaboration with Houston's USBG
We developed this Imperial IPA in collaboration with the US Bartenders Guild to highlight all of the amazing things they’re doing for our community.
Fine Print:ABV: 9%
Surprisingly balanced and drinkable, given its stats. The stripped-down malt bill lets the noble hops go crazy with floral and grassy bouqets
