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!

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 […]
HopFusion Ale Works – Macy Moore and Matt Hill are two guys who are all about good friends, enjoying the ride of life “preferably on a bicycle,” and brewing great craft beer in Fort Worth. During my recent Fort Worth trip I headed out to visit DFW’s newest brewery. I was lucky enough to visit […]
So once again, Twitter suggested I follow someone “related to me” and that someone was Jim Inskipt. Jim works at Rabbit Hole Brewing, just outside of Fort Worth in Justin, Texas. And as fate had it, we got connected right before my trip to the DFW Metroplex and right as Rabbit Hole were gearing up to […]
I recently joined Tim & Bryan from St Elmo Brewing for a beer at their new Austin brewery. We talked craft beer, how they got to opening their own brewery, and what to expect from them and their St Elmo Neighborhood. They can hardly be called the new guys in the craft beer community though; […]
