Beer Lover's Texas: Best Breweries, Brewpubs & Beer Bars

With quality beer producers popping up all over the nation, you don't have to travel very far to taste great beer; some of the best stuff is brewing right in your home state. Tonight we’re celebrating the best brews of Texas with Mike Cortez, author of the new book, Beer Lover’s Texas. From state-wide breweries to brewpubs, beer bars and more, Cortez will guide us through a tour of all Texas has to offer. Join us as we raise a pint to the Lone Star State’s brews!


Mike Cortez was born and raised in Houston, TX and currently resides in Austin. He has worked as a writer and photographer for many different publications and websites ranging from the Houston Chronicle to the Thrillist. With a deep appreciation for writing about the art of food and drinks, Mike runs the blogs Bite Me Austin and Texas Beer Guide. One of his biggest passions aside from craft beer is supporting local businesses and organizing events that benefit charitable organizations and those in need. Mike has taken his love of craft beer from learning the art of home brewing to the hopes of one day open a brewpub of his own.

Thank you for supporting Mike Cortez and your local independent bookstore!
