Paying homage to the famous Spindletop gusher which brought about the Texas Oil Boom, Spindletap Brewery is now open and booming with barrels of craft beer.
The brewery, about 15 minutes northeast of downtown, features a taproom for guests to grab a seat, sample beer and take in a football game. Ten flat-screen televisions behind the bar and five more around the space means there is not a bad seat in the house.
For timid beer drinkers, the Boomtown Blonde is a light and refreshing starter. Move your way down the list and you'll find bolder beverages like the Hopper House Double IPA and the Honey Hole ESB.
Packaged beers should soon be available in major retailers, but in the meantime the taps are flowing at the brewery.
