HOUSTON (KTRK) --Grab a glass and prepare to take a ride through the growing world of beer -- right here in the Bayou City!
At last check, there were at least 189 breweries in the city of Houston.
You read it right: Houston is all about the beer.
From the staple breweries of St. Arnold, 8th Wonder, Buffalo Bayou, Karbach, Texas Beer or Saloon Door, there are more breweries that continue to tap into the city.
With such success, St. Arnold recently announced its expansion plans for the future. Last year, Anheuser-Busch dropped a bombshell to the craft beer world. The company announced plans to buy Karbach.
For the IPA enthusiasts, if you venture out to Katy, No Label Brewing Company may fill the desires of your heart. Literally.
Take a trip further north and you'll find B-52 Brewing Company and Lone Pint Brewery.
BakFish may be brand-new, but the brewery is already becoming a must-stop in Pearland.
