Happy Birthday to me! Untapped is back and furious than ever hosting five events through out Texas returning to Fort Worth for its fourth year this upcoming Saturday.

Eight bands are scheduled to appear such as Built to Spill, David Ramirez, Rayland Baxter, The Hendersons, Hayes Carll, Grupo Fantasma, White Reaper and Bummer Vacation.

Louisianans sure know how to party! Beads, Bourbon and Beer take over the lovely days during Mardi Gras season.
Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday, refers to the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, the last hurrah before the start of the Lenten season. This means no more indulging yourself with rich food, delectable-colorful King Cake and alcoholic beverages for most. Though not everyone practices the religious tradition of this “fasting” season, it is a celebration that happens worldwide. Exotic festival colors fill this time with hues of bright green, purple and gold. Everyone joins in this celebration but no one has quite perfected it than those from my Louisiana neighbors. Festivities include parades with custom-built lavish floats, costumed performers and filled with copious amounts of booze. To kick off the Fat Tuesday festivities, I present two Mardi Gras beers for your Fat Tuesday celebrations.
This week I’m bringing you a jam-packed growler full of craft beer news that you need to know. MillerCoors shuts down their North Carolina Brewery, North Texas craft brewers sue the state, and there is an R2D2 mini fridge that will bring you beer. Not compelling enough? How about the news that AB InBev proposed a takeover of SABMiller. Yeah, I knew that would grab your attention. Read on to get the details of these stories and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
New uses for tea, emergency relief and freedom-centered workplace awards. None of these sound like they belong in the Growler Fill but I promise, all of these stories involve craft beer. If you keep reading, I’ll tell you all about them and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
A new week has begun which means there is new craft beer news to cram into your mind. Luckily for you, I summarized all of the important stuff. In this Growler, you’ll read about the return of SAVOR, a backwards bill being proposed in Texas, and the record breaking craft beer sales in the US. Catch up on all of these stories and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
Happy Monday, folks! As always, the Growler is here to soothe your Monday blues with the best news stories from the craft beer world. This week, we will be giving you an update on Stone’s new facility in Berlin, highlighting charity work done by Odell, and giving you the details of the newest Texas bill that could allow for sales of ‘take home’ beer. Catch up on all of these stories and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
As if there weren’t enough days to drink during the week. Somehow Thursday’s always seem to take the prize as one of my favorite drinking days. Something about knowing you’re a day away …
This week’s craft beer news contains a little something for every type of craft beer fan. For the frequent flyer, Delta will be offering many more craft beers on their in-flight menu. For the pet lover, Rover.com compiled the cities with the most alcohol related dog names. For the active craft beer junkie, Outside Magazine will be hosting it’s 2nd Annual Bike and Brew festival.

I’ve scoured the internet far and wide (with the help from some other Porch Drinkers) to bring you this week’s beer news. We’ve got updates on laws – some good, some bad – a list of some fun beer names, tips on brewing, and a great SNL skit of Rick Perry. How could it get any better?
Bitterness: 13 IBU
Shiner Bock. I couldn’t tell you the first time I tried it, but my most recent love affair with the Texas brew began shortly after Christmas. My friends Christine, Samantha and I went to see Dallas Buyers Club, and at the end of the film Jennifer Garner and Matthew McConaughey are splitting none other than (you guessed it!) a bottle of Shiner Bock. Up until this point, I had kind of forgotten about it, which isn’t fair to such a stellar beer, but it just got lost in the fray.
Flown in the checked baggage compartment and somehow managing to not shatter into a million pieces, I was gifted a bottle of this gem from a friend deep in the heart of Texas. He knows I’m a fan of beers from far and wide, and thought to bring one of his hometown favorites to grace my taste buds. And let me be the first to tell you, it did not disappoint in the slightest.
