Texas Wants Beer!

Our state is the top beer market in the country, so why are we falling behind in the microbrewery movement?

The Ginger Man

Kosmos Spoetzl was a party waiting to happen.

The Village Bar became The Ginger Man in 1985. (It was right next door to my homebrew shop at the time!). Bob Precious led the way in supporting imported and craft brewery draft beers. This is one of the best beer bars in the country.

Flying Saucer

705 Main

713-228-9472

This is a great place for a beer when you're downtown — it has a vast selection of draft beers. It can be loud, but that's because it's so popular (and justifiably so!).

The Petrol Station

985 Wakefield Dr.

713-957-2875

This old gas station actually calls itself a coffee shop. There aren't that many beers on tap, but the ones they have are very hoppy. This is heaven for hopheads.

Red Lion Pub

2316 S. Shepherd

713-782-3030

The pints are pricey at this quintessential British pub, but they're Imperial pints — 20 ounces versus the domestic 16-ounce pint. My wife is English and she loves their fish and chips.

HOMEBREWERS' SUPPLIES

If you're looking for the ultimate gift for the "foam ranger" in your life, consider giving them a homebrewing kit for Christmas.
