Purchased a bottle in Houston after a 9 hour high school graduation I was forced to watch - hopefully some of these kids will make something of themselves and brew beer I can purchase.

Karbach is a new brewery that I never have heard of. This poured a very clear copper color....little head that dissipated quickly. Fruity and hoppy smell that was consistent with the taste. This was a surprising beer for me. A great combination of hoppiness with a taste of fruit....but what gets me is the background of pepper - makes this very distinct. Mild carbonation with a decent finish. Only beer I have had yet from Karbach, but nice job.

Hmmm....wonder if that graduation is over.

Ahhh, Hopadillo IPA....
This beer is fantastic. Floral, piney, grassy, nicely carbonated and cheap!!! $6 a sixer here in Houston. This beer is gorgeous. Pours almost nut brown, thick head, great lacing. It smells like a fresh hop cone. It goes down dry and smooth, while ringing every last nuance out of the hops.

Beautiful, local, hoppy, bright, cheap...

Uhhh no brainer.
