Houston Bars Celebrate the Life of Ash Rowell with Weeklong "Ash Bash"

1 of 23
Last week's six day long Ash Bash celebration saw crowds gather at bars across town to celebrate the life of Ashley "Ash" Rowell, one of Houston's most important craft beer pioneers. Kicking off at Liberty Station and wrapping up this past Saturday at Cottonwood, events raised money for the Ash Rowell Foundation with all proceeds going to Texas Children's Hospital. Turnout was brisk all week with large crowds at the weekend festivities at Petrol Station and Cottonwood. Fans turned out in droves on Friday to sample rare beers from 512, North Coast and more.
