On a whim, I suggested to Greg that tour the Karbach Brewery. Turned out to be a great move! It's a bit like the old St. Arnold's tour (though I've only visited the new facility) - like a huge ice house with the proper areas for separation, brewing, fermentation and storage.
Show up early for the 1 pm tour - some pours run out before they're done for the day. For $7 (or $6 if you bring a can of food for the Houston Food Bank), you get a way cute little .33L glass, four chips and a whole lot of fun as well as a nice little beer education. There are other packages too, and sassy t-shirts.
I tried the Hopadillo IPA, Rodeo Clown Double IPA (very English-tasting), Sympathy for the Lager and the Weisse Versa Wheat. Oh, and a sip of the Hellfighter Imperial Porter. Yum, even if you are not an aficionado....

While the drink sampling was fun, even more fun was my birthday dinner at Roost with Corey and Glen - more soon on that!
