Kickin’ It

29 Jul

Swimming in IPA infested waters…

Nothing like kickin’ it at the pool.  Especially when it’s 95 degrees out, dry as a bone, and you can actually score some pretty damn good beer.  Used to be only two of those things were possible in El Paso, Texas.  Turns out craft brew has started to make a dent in the Bud Light/Coors Light-dominated market…and I didn’t even have to look hard to find it!  More to come on how beer is blowing up here in the coming days, but for now scope the two beers my brother and I had with our ribs, poolside: Happy Camper IPA from Santa Fe Brewing Company and Fireman’s #4 Blonde Ale from the Real Ale Brewing Company in Blanco, TX.  This trip is off to a good start.

Texas beer and ribs? I want to go to there.

    Least we forget, the Shiner Bock. It’s great to hear some good stuff is available in that market. I would imagine its a natural for the Arizona brewers as well.
