Bottle Caps and Birthday Wishes: 20 Years of Brewing in Texas

We’re paying homage to Texan beer drinkers with each bottle cap, too. Printed on the underside of every cap is a different Texas city - fifty in all - where Real Ale is sold. Collectors can display their collection in our limited-edition Texas-shaped bottle cap sign.

Real Ale Treadcask Tour in May!

In March, Real Ale invited a bunch of the Treadsack team out to visit the brewery. Everybody had beer, food, lots of good times, and beer. While there, representatives from each restaurant and bar filled a cask of Real Ale beer with unique ingredients they each thought would compliment the brew. Well, those casks are ready to start tapping, and we are gonna do just that! Throughout the month of May, all 7 Treadsack locations will tap their respective cask. There will be a prize at the end of the month for the caskmasters that complete the tour of all 7 tappings. On Friday, we’ll be at Foreign Correspondents with a firkin of Helles Lager w/coriander, lemongrass, galangal, and ginger!

Houston Firkin Fest

Come out and say hey to Schmitty at Houston Firkin Fest! He’ll be pouring a cask of Real Heavy, our award-winning Scotch ale, as well as a cask of White, our dry-hopped Belgian wit, with fresh grapefruit. Stop by our booth, drink some beer, and say hello!

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.
