Spindletap Washington Beer Talk - In Texas #45

Spindletap is an interesting Houston phenomenon. Their hazy IPA catapulted them to the spotlight and they have been living the high life ever since. Rushing from release to release, with their IIPAs making up for their non IPAs, they feature on average at least one “I” per beer. They use their giant space to their advantage to throw big events. They even used their huge warehouse, shared with a friendly neighborhood oil logistics company, to stage relief supplies for hurricane Ike. True Houston super stars.

Saint Arnold - Washington Beer Talk #41

Jennifer from No Label last week pointed me towards her old homebrewing buddy, Aaron, who now runs beer operations at Saint Arnold Brewery. Saint Arnold is the oldest craft brewery in Texas, an order of magnitude larger than No Label, and a Houston cultural staple. Aaron has been in the beer business for years shares what it is like climbing the beer ladder.

I hate making excuses, but the mic Aaron was wearing was picking up some interesting background music from a totally unknown source (if I had to guess, earbuds playing softly in his pocket) and as a result, his audio is pretty doctored to have the music removed. I figured I’d get ahead of that one now so you can know of my shame.

No Label - Washington Beer Talk #40

This week is my first favorite brewery and the star of my home town, No Label Brewery out in Katy (a suburb of Houston). It’s the only brewery this far out west of and is the 3rd oldest in H-town. Jennifer Royo, co founder, joins me today while I wax nostalgic about Texas and gives us her take on the industry. She and husband Brian started a family around the same time as they started they brewery, so she also talks a bit about the juggling act of raising a young family and a young brewery at the same time.
