Goose Island Honker's Ale. My first Goose Island, and I was impressed with the taste. I need to figure out how to get this in Houston.
Goose Island is making its way to Houston. It was supposed to be here by the end of the year, but who knows. Also, I doubt we'll see much more than their most basic lineup for a while.

Having some friends over for a beer night tonight, looking forward to it. All 3 of us are in the beverage industry, so we all want to top each other.

My brother lives in Chicago and drinks this frequently. I am envious. I was also surprised to hear that Anheuser Busch bought this microbrewery. Oh well, whatever gets it here.

Let us know what you drink tonight.

Love me some Shiner Bock.

Sam Adams has a decent Seasonal 12-pack out right now including 2 of each:
Pumpkin Ale (still like Blue Moon's better)
Octoberfest (pretty good)
Hazel Brown (yet to try)
Dunkelweisen (yet to try)
Latitude 48 IPA (excellent hoppy IPA)
and their regular Boston Lager

Variety is the spice of life.

Big props to the New Belgium Brewery. They had quite a spread for all the brewers in town for the Great American Beer Festival. We got an hour and a half tour. Very cool place, innovative with some of their green technology.
