How Did I miss this?

After a longer than expected hiatus I wrote a long post yesterday, one of the subjects was the recent representation of Texas Breweries at the World Beer Cup. Well I missed a winner! The great Covey Restaurant in Ft. Worth won a GOLD medal in the Vienna Lager Style category. Congrats to them. They also got a very nice write up in the Ft. Worth Business Journal. I really enjoy what Mr. Fulton is doing up there, and I know I've said it a thousand times, but why the heck can't Houston get a good brew pub?

Maybe what should be asked is, "Why can't Houston SUPPORT a good brew pub?" How many brewpubs have gone bust in the past 15 years?

Good point, but when was the last good brew pub that went under? I think a lot of the ones that failed were back in the 90's, and Houston's beer advocacy has progressed by leaps and bounds in that time. Heck BJ's is doing good business in two different locals, surely if they can do good business, a local independent one like Covey in Ft. Worth could florish.
