Revolver Brewing

    Has anyone had their brews yet?

    I had the Blood & Honey and High Brass a couple of weekends ago. The High Brass was drinkable and malty, but not heavy and had a slightly bitter hoppy finish. The Blood & Honey was pretty darn good. They finish it with blood orange zest and a local honey. The honey didn't jump out at me, but did lend a subtle balance to the citrus zest which was definately there! I really enjoyed this one, but not one I could have more than two of in a night. I just can't drink much wheat beer at once.

    Anyhow, just wondering what my fellow Texans and Southwesterners think of these.

    Had their beers at the craft beer fest in Austin a while back. Really good stuff and met one of the owners who was a cool guy with ties back to my hometown ironically.

    As excited about them as i was about Jester King. High brass was great. I thought it was a well balanced beer. Their bock surprised me! Nice chocolate finish with a bit more body than i was expecting (from a bock). Porter was good, too. I'm not the biggest fan of blood and honey...too sweet for me. I have a growler of their stout chilling for consumption tonight. I'll report back.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep a look out for them. Recently had Peticolas and I'm pleased with the DFW scene right now.

    I've had both of those, thought they were both very solid brews. But, I think their stout, the Mother's Little Fracker is the best of their lineup (from what I've had). They've got something good going on.
  10. Only one I've come across so far is blood and honey and I think it's a terrible beer.
