Big Bend Brewing Co. operates out of a (modern) barn, with a taproom located just a few steps from the actual brewery. It's "the most remote brewery in America" and aptly, their tagline is "The beer from out here." Out here, the vistas are both beautiful and forbidding, the people are both welcoming and hardy, and the beer is good.

This here is a collaborative description of a Sunday afternoon in McKinney,TX., including The Celt Pub, Emporium Pies, and Tupps Brewery. There might be sunshine and bottle trees in here, too.
Tupps Brewery makes some great session-able summer beers, some outstanding strong beers, and you can find them in Target.
Down in the hill country, west of Austin, there’s a brewery, on a ranch, nestled amongst the oak trees. Situated atop a natural aquifer--with, apparently, the right amount of salts to get a perfect, slightly tart, slightly hoppy, slightly malty profile--Jester King makes beers.
Tattoo Ranch is a scant handful of blocks from where we watched the cattle drive earlier—a short but entertaining affair performed twice daily on Exchange Avenue—but if you’re expecting either ten-gallon hats and cowboy boots, or a Sons of Anarchy-esque biker hangout, don’t.

On the road again, and it's time for a travel post. Be warned: this one has nothing to do with beer. I do still have two write-ups to do on Michigan breweries, and I will. But today, it's all about Cincinnati.

Finger Lakes Distilling, located along Seneca Lake, small-batch distills some of the finest spirits I’ve tasted north of the Blue Ridge mountains, along with the only US-made Soju that I’ve had the joy of experiencing. The distillery, which opened in 2009, has a number of unique features, but I can’t find a single complaint.
