A Brief History of Everything (and by "Everything" I mean "Beer")



If you are anything like me you are sitting at your desk at work with a nice, cold, frosty beer in your hand (if my boss is reading this, it's totally apple juice). But did you ever stop to think about the history of that liquid uberness that you have? Many a millennia have brought us down the drunken road to where we are today and I would like to share with you a bit of what I have learned staggering down that road.

Beer brewed from barley, as we know it today, dates back about 3000 years before the birth of our 8 pound 6 ounce savior Baby Jesus.

Attention Houston Beer Nerds

If you haven't heard there is a new Microbrewery in town and it is awesome!

From there they are cranking out some of the best microbrews you will likely find here in Houston. The owner and brewmaster Brian Royo is a graduate of the University of Houston, but unlike the Cougars football team this year he is primed to take the city by storm. But enough about all that lets get to the beer!
