Supporting your local brewery
I think that one of the best things about drinking micro brewed beer is that you can support local commerce. Instead of giving money to some huge global conglomerate who could care less whether they have you as a customer or not, you can choose to give your money to business with direct ties to your community. These businesses usually support local causes, so why not support them back. The best example I have is the great St. Arnold's brewery here in Houston. Every year they support a huge biking team for the MS150 a bike ride between here and Austin that raises money for MS. Its a great cause and St. Arnold's does a lot to promote it. So in the effort to give some love to our local Breweries I have started a list of links on the right side of the page of Texas Breweries, from St. Arnolds to Shiner and Real Ale. If anyone knows of others let me know, and whether your from Texas, California, Colorado, or New York, take some time out to support your local brewer, because you KNOW they appreciate your business.
