Things We've Written

Is Helium Beer real? Maybe ...

Perhaps you heard it on Facebook and are looking to try and find where you can buy some, or maybe you just watched a viral video and think it’s too good to be true. The truth of the matter is that helium beer makes it rounds a couple of times a year, and every time it’s nothing more than an amusing hoax.

What is Krausening?

Commercial brewers and homebrewers alike employ experimental and traditional brewing techniques to get their craft beer just right. One of those techniques is Krausening, a traditional German approach that eschews adding any sugars or extras to the fermented beer, with the goal of producing a "cleaner" beer. In summary, and ultimate effect, to kräusen a beer is to add carbonation to it.

The Martin House Best Maid Sour Pickle Beer

Martin House Brewing Company out of Fort Worth, Texas brews the Best Maid Sour Pickle Beer. We've heard of craft beer breweries making some funky beers, and this dill pickle juice with an abv is no exception. We imagine the flavor to be huge, because everything is bigger in Texas, especially Dallas.
