Meet Jeremy Hunt, Brewmaster At Deep Ellum Brewing Company

DSC09304by Steven Doyle

A few short months ago Deep Ellum Brewing Company hired a new brewmaster, Jeremy Hunt, who has been working  at Bluegrass Brewing Company in Louisville, Kentucky for the past two years. Hunt brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm which should translate into some very innovative beers being pumped out of the 8,000 square foot facility. All this comes off of a recent expansion and a thirst to better penetrate the market.

Yesterday the brewery penned a deal that will bring their craft beer to College Station, a major boon for the young company.

This past weekend I had the pleasure to dine with Hunt to discuss beer, Deep Ellum and the future of the brewery.  Continue reading

Get Your Empty Peticolas Growlers Tomorrow

growlersby Steven Doyle

When Peticolas announced on Facebook that they would be selling their new growlers tomorrow during their brew tour at their offices in the Design District, a lot of people took notice and were possibly visibly excited. The very thought of taking home award winning beer such as Golden Opportunity or the Velvet Hammer seemed like a wonderful proposition. Alas, the growlers will be empty. But they are super cool looking.

Do not let the fact that our odd Texas laws will not allow Michael Peticolas to sell you a growler full deter you from buying one of these nifty vessels. They cost $10 for the small version and $20 for the big boy, and you can take them to places like Whole Foods or Craft and Growler and have them filled as often as you care to do so.

The very empty growlers go on sale at 1pm tomorrow.

Launched a year ago this August, Blood and Honey is far and away Revolver’s biggest hit.    Continue reading

You could almost hand-deliver Four Corners beers to Cook hall. The brewery is at Trinity Groves on the west end of Santiago Calatrava’s glorious bridge over the Trinity River.         Continue reading

This is for real. If anybody asks you “How do I get to Fucking?” just show them this map:

I hear that it is a very stimulating part of Austria.

But what about the “Hell”? — that just means ‘light’.
