Nothing like a refreshing cold beer on a hot sunny day!
After a few stormy days, it was nice to finally have some fresh sunshine here in Houston, but by the afternoon, however, it was hot and steamy and what better way to cool down than to visit a local brewery and have an ice-cold beer? That is exactly what I did! After a short drive down Karbach Street in Houston, Texas, I got out of my car and headed towards to the doors of the historic Karbach Brewing Company.
After topping off my beer, I walked over to meet with the tour guide and the other guests. The tour was conducted by our guide, Travis, who I eventually found out was a military veteran himself. Travis, who was in the United States Marine Corps, gave me the necessary safety briefing and guidelines I needed to know before going into the brewery. Donning our safety glasses, I walked into the brewery and Travis began the tour by introducing the group to the four main ingredients that are used to make beer.
Moving on, we then learned about the fermenting process, the process where yeast is added and the bi-product alcohol is made. Lastly, we found out how the Karbach Brewery packages and ships its thirst-quenching beer all over the Lone Star State. Using German training and brewing standards, Karbach Brewery produces some of the most unique flavors of beer in the State of Texas. In addition to the brewery itself, the company also features a restaurant, store, and the infamous Biergarten.
Needless to say, the tour was very informative and the ice-cold beverages provided were also successful in quenching our thirst. I concluded the event by hanging out in the picnic area while enjoying the last little bit of liquid gold in our brand new Karbach glasses. I had a great time at the brewery and look forward to visiting it again. For more information about the Karbarch Brewery and tour hours, you can visit their website at KarbachBrewing.com.
