We’ve all been to ‘brewpubs’ that never stray from the same, boring core beers or, the other side of that: the ones with questionable food overshadowed by the brews. Fear not for us here in Austin! We’re blessed with several Austin brewpubs pulling double-duty serving up top-notch food that pairs perfectly with their delicious craft beers.
We aren’t known for our apples down here in Texas. In fact, it’s quite tough for apples trees down in this kind of climate. Still, there are a few people in Austin who have persevered through the harsh growing conditions. And the ‘fruits’ of their labor are sweet, crispy, sometimes dry, but always delicious, bubbly […]
Dripping Springs is full to the brim with just about every kind of booze out there! Beer, rum, wine, cider, vodka, and tequila; whatever you like to drink, it’s made here. Come hungry too, cause there’s plenty of pizza and BBQ around to soak it all up!
True love is supporting your beau as they drive you to the industrial area of every town, just for craft beer. True love is also letting them kill that bottle of bubbly, knowing you’re gonna have to take care of whatever mess they get into later. True love is many things and the pressure that Valentine’s Day creates can be a little stressful. This year, make it easy and skip the material items. Instead show your love to your Valentine with a recipe featuring their favorite booze!
One of the most exciting parts about being a craft beer lover is hunting down new breweries to visit. And that’s exactly what I did on my recent visit to Fort Worth and surrounding North Texas towns. Fort Worth is just a short drive north from Austin, and with all the great craft beer and BBQ, it makes a perfect destination for your next weekend trip in Texas.
There’s two places in Austin known for their long lines: ‘World Famous’ Franklin Barbecue and Jester King Farmhouse Brewery during any bottle release. So when news broke of a collaboration beer between these two powerhouses, us Texans eagerly jumped right in line with our lawn chairs and a cooler of beer. Figlet is the result […]
Working from home is great, whether you do it full-time or a few times a month, the flexibility and freedom is something many dream of, but still it’s all-too-common though to find yourself cooped up at home for days or just stuck in a rut at work. In Austin, there’s no excuse for any of that though! Here’s my list of the best spots in Austin to get a beer and get shit done!
Meridian Hive is Austin’s first (and only) meadery and they’re a refreshing addition to this city of Craft Beer drinkers. They are leading a reinvention of mead and pushing boundaries with their carbonated mead and barrel aged stills. My recent visit with Angi, Meridian Hive Brand Manager, was a blast and super-educational. She was more […]
Yes, I know most of us are just waiting for 2016 to end and hang on, we’re almost to 2017!! But before we do I want to take a moment to share with you all some of my favorite blog posts and personal highlights with Big World, Small Girl’s Best of 2016. 2016 was a […]
Parkway Brewing is a brewery in Southwest Virginia that will always be special to me. This Virginia Brewery was where my love for craft beer developed and the same place I first felt a connection to the craft beer community. I’ve written about a lot of breweries, even before moving to Texas, but somehow I […]
