    Exploring Big Brew Houston

    Beer drinkers come one, come all. As featured in The Pour—Brew Masters in the Oct/Nov issue of Bayou City Magazine, Big Brew rolls into Houston October 23 through 25 at the George R. Brown Convention Center and we have a feeling this is an experience you aren’t going to want to miss. Imagine 1,000 craft beers, including 40 Texas breweries and some of the hardest to find brews around, in one location. The week is broken down into three events including a tasting from Houston’s top culinary talent and brew masters at the Great Match, a Texas Brewery Showcase, a Pub Crawl and a day of Grand Tasting.

Right now of course you can still easily enjoy whichever you crave as the weather flip flops between the seasons, as it is so prone to do in southeast Texas.
