Is this the best beer in Texas? Probably not according to anyone who’s made it this deep into such a crafty beer article, but damn it, it’s an institution that started brewing in Texas in 1883. Do you really want to go through life not having downed one on a hot day? No, you do not (though let’s be honest, you probably couldn’t avoid it anyway). Thank you, Mr. Adolphus Busch.
Strong ale, 9%
The name says it all for this one, a beer that’s as strong as a hammer, but smooth as velvet. It drinks very easy at 9% ABV and has notes of caramel and brown sugar, but is not overly sweet as there are some beautiful bright and aromatic hops that tone down the sweetness.
Winter warmer, 10%
A spiced winter ale that sits at 10% ABV to keep you warm all winter long. You’ll taste nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger along with a smooth alcohol burn and some mild English hops.
