When Ben Fullelove, owner of Petrol Station and Brash Brewing, announced that he would be hosting a beer dinner at Petrol Station for the first time in forever, I was a little hesitant. I’ve now been to four of Ben’s beer dinners and three of them were home runs, while the most recent was not […]

I have had the pleasure to experience three beer dinners with Jonathan Jones in the kitchen. I can’t pick a favorite- it’s too hard. Like the beers, the food has all been so different, complimentary in its own right, which is precisely the point. Formerly of Max’s Wine Dive, Xuco Xicana and Beaver’s, his new […]

When I got tired of Shiner Bock everyday, I tried the Shiner Blonde, then their seasonals and commemorative series. I […]

One of the most anticipated dinners of Houston Beer Week was definitely the Clandestine dinner. Technically, it was two dinners; a battle, if you will, of beer dinners, between two of Houston’s craft beer pioneers, Ben Fullelove of Petrol Station and Kevin Floyd of Anvil and Hay Merchant.

Each previous dinner had a specific brewery theme, starting with Dogfish Head last summer, to the Real Ale dinner in April. The “Mid-Summer” beer dinner was to be different though, this […]
