Things We've Written

Everything to know about IBUs and the IBU scale.

The International Bitterness Units or IBU is one way to measure how a beer tastes in terms of bitterness. While the bitterness of beer plays a significant role in a flavor profile, it is only one of many factors. Alcohol content, malt and water quality, yeast fermentation byproducts, bacteria, and aeration also affect a particular beer's taste profile.

What is the best beer for beer batter?

There's no one single choice when it comes to choosing the best beer to mix with your batter-making ingredients - egg, flour, and (optional) spice. Choose a beer that matches the spirit of the meal that you are looking to cook. That's what it is most important.

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.
