Once a quarter, Cathy Rascoe and the crew from Live It Big, Inc. (a local charity incubator) put on an event called Camp Beer.

Camp Beer VIII: Stoutapalooza II took place on a Friday evening this time around, once again benefiting the charity incubator Live It Big. Unfortunately I didn’t attend the first Stoutapalooza, so I was definitely excited to participate in round two. Since most of the beers were 9%+ ABV, this Camp Beer featured fewer beers, 12 […]

I have had Guinness Draught several times, and quite enjoy it, but I also don’t drink too much of any one beer because life is too short. So when I heard that the States were finally getting Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, which has been in other countries for a while now, I wanted to check […]

Today was sad, because Houston Beer Week is now over, but happy, because it was a bad-ass time. I offered my excellent beer pouring skills to Cathy Clark over at Live It Big for her first Monsters Of Beer Festival.

So, last week the Houston Beer Week website had posted something about Wednesday’s usual Brew Nite at Flying Saucer being the Stone Brewing night, that was supposed to have an appearance by Jason Armstrong, the Texas Stone distributor, but when I checked this morning, it wasn’t there, along with a note saying that the Saucer […]

When I first heard that there would be a beer dinner, or as JJ from Beavers called it a “beer party”, I jumped on it. When I called there were only 3 spots left and it sold out fast. For Houston Beer Week there’s a beer dinner every night so I chose carefully, they aren’t […]

Through Facebook a friend and I discovered that a new bar/Burger/wing/pizza place, the Pub Hub, would be opening today at 4PM with drink and food specials. If we only knew! Erin was the very first customer (obviously free beer for life, right?) and I met her there shortly after. I started with a BrewDog 5AM […]

Today while browsing online at single-serving recipes and cost-saving tips for buying/storing food, I found a recipe for Tandoori Chicken, a popular Indian dish with yogurt, lots of spices and chicken. I decided why not? I have never attempted making my own Indian food, but the recipe is pretty easy to follow and now that […]
