Do me a flavor: New beers to cheers

Break Line Traditional Bock

Would you believe the best American version of a traditional German bock is brewed in … San Marcos? Two consecutive gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival deem that statement a cold, hard fact. Rather than question, head to one of Rip Current Brewing’s pair of tasting rooms and experience it for yourself. One of the finest lagers in a town awash in ales, it’s a focused beer that tastes like beer, with a mild sweet breadiness balanced beautifully by Old World hops. Prost!

Sweet Ride

The gold medal-winning best Bohemian-style pilsner in the country is brewed by O-side’s Bagby Beer Company. Order one, experience the crisp, clean, yet flavorful (are those … yes, they are … HOPS!) taste and be prepared never to go back to humdrum lawnmower beer.
