Mysterium Verum Benedictum Bottle Release

It’s happening again. And we even added cherries on top. Next up in bottle releases for our barrel-aged and sour beer Mysterium Verum series is the award-winning Benedictum, our sour brown ale barrel-aged with wild yeast, bacteria and an addition of tart cherries.

We LOVE the 90s Party at Axelrad

Cool weather is here and we’re celebrating with a giant 90s themed party with all of our friends at one of Houston’s favorite backyard bars, Axelrad! Join us in celebration of all of our favorite breweries that were born in the 90’s! We’ll also be honoring our own hometown hero, Saint Arnold! We will have butterfly clips, pop rocks, gel pens, slinkies, slap bracelets, and much more for all attendees. Live music and 90s DJs will be playing throughout the evening, along with special beer tappings from each brewery, and a special 90s themed photobooth. We’ll also have a table of raffle items set up filled with brewery swag and 90’s nicknacks. All proceeds will be donated to help out a Houston area industry family in need.

You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline — it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
