Imaginary Drinks We Wish Were Real
Our favorite fictional booze
Screens Story  July 20, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...Best served accompanying: Milliways' dish of the day (ask it for its own recommendation about the best cut), or at least with a good dialysis machine and a copy of your last will and testament standing by. Pawtucket Patriot Ale..."

Speak No Ale: Beer Men Sue for Free Speech
Texas' arcane beer laws may be busted by a First Amendment lawsuit
News Story  October 28, 2011, by Richard Whittaker
"...In vino veritas – so the saying goes – but the same may not apply to Texas ales. Lawmakers have struggled for years to reform Texas' misshapen beer market, but now three Austin businesses are taking a new legal tack: charging that the existing Texas laws are not just bad for business, but also violate the First Amendment by putting unlawful restrictions on free speech..."

This Is a Real Thing
The Beer Mile keeps track and field weird
Food Story  November 26, 2014, by Dan Gentile
"..."It's a German-style blond ale, very similar to a Kölsch, but we added a small amount of dry-hopping to give the beer a spicy hop character and a clean, crisp finish. Perfect for chugging on a track," says Hops & Grain owner Josh Hare...."

Peached Tortilla Pops Up in Driftwood
Trailer food and craft beer invade tiny Driftwood, blow town away
DAILY Food  October 9, 2013, by Mick Vann
"...While I won't be among the throngs in Zilker Park this weekend sustaining myself with food from the Peached Tortilla or slurping down Real Ale in the new ACL Beer Hall, I'm partial to both products. Not long ago, they practically brought a party to my very own back yard...."

Texas Craft Brewers Festival Debuts Beer List
The Texas-only beer celebration returns to Austin
DAILY Food  September 1, 2016, by Eric Puga
"...From the legacy acts of Real Ale, Live Oak, and Saint Arnold, to the dynamic, talented hucksters from Pinthouse Pizza, Big Bend, and Peticolas, the Texas craft beer scene is like a pitching rotation from a late-Eighties MLB All-Star Game. These Rusted Root jammin’ mercenaries can launch imperial IPA fastballs and barrel-aged slurves at your sobriety like Doc Gooden on five days rest..."

Food Story  July 4, 2008, by Lee Nichols

Top 10 Austin Breweries
Power ranking the local leaders in craft beer
Food Story  June 22, 2017, by Eric Puga
"...So, we put together a list to determine who was leading the crusade for craft beer in our region – an area that covers 52 active breweries (with 11 more on the way) and, exactly, a 48.9 mile radius so as to include adopted pals Real Ale Brewery in Blanco, seeing as they culturally align with Austin's beer scene, as much of their brewing talent decamped from Austin brewhouses in the late Nineties anyway. For the sake of this list, each brewery was analyzed by its current relevance and contributions to Austin beer: ideological fluency of their core beers, interesting seasonal releases, developmental impact on the local beer scene, buzzy accolades, and up-to-the-second innovations..."

A Disaster Brewing
Hops shortage squeezes local-beer makers and drinkers
Food Story  March 21, 2008, by Lee Nichols
"...Here's a little Beer 101 for you: Hops – the female flowers of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus) – are one of the key ingredients in beer, along with malted barley, yeast, and water. Different hops serve different purposes, including stability, flavoring, and aroma in brewing..."

Background Locals
A six-pack of Austin's most underrated beers
Food Story  April 2, 2015, by Eric Puga
"...And yes, there are the talented juvenescent, simply cloaked by the vastness of options; new beers entering a crowded landscape amongst a cavalry of brothers, but also aggressors like the infamous Big Three (Bud, Miller, and Coors), who not only demand their remaining 8% market share, but deploy chicanery through their own "craft" brands, insistence on prime shelf-estate, and promotion through the lyrical styling of Pit Bull. The struggle is, in fact, real...."

Introducing the New Official Beer of Austin
ATX has a brewed awakening
Food Story  May 14, 2015, by Eric Puga
"...As smaller breweries began dissolving around town, a second swell of beer makers, like Real Ale and Live Oak, began popping up. Suddenly, Shiner Bock wasn't as exhilarating or refreshing as that candy-red bottle of Firemans #4 Blonde Ale that could lower the triple-digit heat by at least a full degree..."

Class in Session
A primer on Austin's most drinkable beers
Food Story  September 17, 2015, by Eric Puga
"...For the sake of comparison, the quizzically popular and fully mechanized American "session" beers, Coors Light, Miller Lite, Bud Light – all classified as pale lagers by style – weigh in at about the same 4.2% alcohol by volume (ABV). For the calorie suitors, Bud "Heavy" comes in at 5% ABV, while the more exotic options, like Bud Light Lime and Lime-a-Rita, buzz in at 4.2% ABV and 8% ABV, respectively..."

The No. 3 Bus Pub Crawl
On 2008's tour, we drank too much, missed a couple of buses, were much too loud, and finally stopped when we were cut off. This year was the same concept, but a better-paced, thoroughly enjoyable drinking experience.
Food Story  August 21, 2009, by Lee Nichols
"...It was a fun time, but not necessarily the tale I want to detail here. I'm older and wiser now and would not want to encourage such behavior among impressionable Chronicle readers..."

Cask-Brewed Ales
Beer snobs flock to these local spots for 'real' ale
Food Story  August 21, 2009, by Lee Nichols
"...Welcome to the secret society, the world of cask-conditioned beer – or as the most fervent proponents refer to it, "real" ale. (Not to be confused with Blanco's Real Ale Brewing Co., although it does produce some cask ales.)..."

A Guide to Finding Beer Outside of Austin’s City Limits
Drinking outside of the box
Food Story  May 18, 2017, by Brandon Watson
"...With a booming urban brewery scene, easy access to a wide variety of local cans, and a full hat rack of logo snapbacks, we Austinites tend to be a little myopic in what we consider local. Sure, we have brewers excelling in a wide variety of styles from pale ales to funky farmhouse saisons, but when it comes to beer, less isn't more..."

Is Austin the Pilsner Capital of America?
Czech your privilege
Food Story  November 23, 2016, by Eric Puga
"...This city tends to excessively self-congratulate, but the rest of the beer-drinking community appears to believe that there is at least some validity to Austin's claim as "pilsner capital of America." At the Great American Beer Festival, the beer industry's benchmark convention and awards coronation, Austin-area breweries medaled in at least one of the three pilsner categories in three out of the last five years, claiming two straight GABF gold medals for ABGB's Rocket 100 Pilsner in 2015, and Industry Pils in 2016, while also claiming a silver for Real Ale's Hans' Pils in 2012. The lager-focused ABGB was also recognized as Large Brewpub of the Year, a remarkable achievement for a 3-year-old brewery...."
