Are we easing in to 2021? Who are we kidding—we could already use a beer or two. The good news is a number of local breweries are releasing new treats to try. Here's the weekly rundown:
News & Events
SpindleTap Brewery reported Wednesday that its beer trailer was stolen from its property. If you have any information on the trailer, call 713-325-1477 or email [email protected] That incident came just days after Southern Yankee reported an early morning break-in to its brewery.
Two new beers coming this week at No Label. The Katy brewery is giving us Irish Red, a 5.4-percent Irish red ale, on Saturday. It's available at the taproom and in stores across Texas. Plus, on Tuesday, get Murky Meyers Double Dry Hopped Double Hazy IPA. This 7.8-percent ABV beer will be available at the taproom.
Eureka Heights has two beers with a new year theme out now. New Year, New Me comes back for January; it's an 8-percent ABV imperial IPA dry-hopped with Azacca, Nelson Sauvin, and Vic Secret. Meanwhile, Worst. Year. Ever. is an 8.5-percent ABV variant of that beer with mango and passionfruit puree added. Both are available in four-packs and via the brewery's drive-thru.
Ingenious released a bunch of ice cream sundae beers this week, and you may be able to get them at the taproom. Look for Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae, Pralines-n-Cream Ice Cream Sundae, and Banana Split Ice Cream Sundae. Each is an 8.3-percent ABV milk stout. Also released this week was Cake Pop German Chocolate, part of a new Cake Pop series. It's an 8.1-percent ABV pastry stout conditioned on chocolate, cacao nibs, and coconut flakes.
Over at Holler, get Ancient Art, a crisp, 4.7-percent ABV dark lager. It's available at the taproom, and watch next week for cans of the new beer.
Vallensons' has a new one, and it's a California Common (that's the name)! This steam beer is an American original (think San Francisco's historic Anchor Steam) at 5-percent ABV. Get it at the Pearland taproom.
Bakfish has released a coffee stout called Imperial Death Stout, brewed with Pearland Coffee Roasters coffee. It's a big one at 9.5-percent ABV, and it's now on tap at the Pearland taproom.
Equal Parts gives us I Would Drink Me, an 8.4-percent ABV New England-style double IPA dry hopped with a few varietals. It's now available at the taproom (via its window) in four-pack and as a draught pour.
Local Group's newest include Suntoucher, a two-malt, one-hop blonde ale with Amarillo hops, and the newest effort in the Hop School hazy beer series, which uses Citra and Idaho 7 hops.
