Saint Arnold beers

This Houston brewery continues to turn out a great product, in my opinion. I tried the Spring Bock, a seasonal beer recently released, and it is excellent.

There's also a cask conditioned ale available at a few pubs. I asked St. Arnold by email to explain this. Brock, who I believe is the owner, emailed right back:

Our cask conditioned Amber Ale is the regular Amber Ale but unfiltered and dry-hopped. Also, it is served out of a cask as opposed to a keg which means that it is not pushed with CO2. Rather, it is pumped using a hand pump and air enters the cask. There are now 3 places in town that carry it: GingerMan, Stag's Head and Mucky Duck.

Those are in Houston.

I reluctantly signed up for their email newsletter. Reluctantly because I don't like adding my name to more corporate email lists when possible. But I was not sorry. The latest email lists an upcoming cigar night at the brewery that sounds like fun and a new "flavor" of beer they're producing.

St. Arnold is a very cool brewery, too, with its tie-died paint job on the corporate Rolls-Royce. I want to try their brewery tours but haven't make it there yet.

For kids and non-drinkers, they produce a nice root beer, too.
