With quality beer producers popping up all over the nation, you don't have to travel very far to taste great beer; some of the best stuff is brewing right in your home state. Tonight we’re celebrating the best brews of Texas with Mike Cortez, author of the new book, Beer Lover’s Texas. From state-wide breweries to brewpubs, beer bars and more, Cortez will guide us through a tour of all Texas has to offer. Join us as we raise a pint to the Lone Star State’s brews! Refreshments will be provided by Rahr & Sons Brewing Company and Infamous Brewing Company!
