Happy American Craft Beer Week, fellow Pint Jockeys! As if we need a designated time to celebrate our favorite craft selections, this week we raise an extra-large glass to small breweries around the nation challenging the status quo on traditional beer making. You can find a full list of Pint Jockeys-sponsored Craft Beer Week events on our Facebook page, but first, take a moment to get to know our Texas Tuesday Pick of the Week: Pedernales Lobo Negro, a dark lager beer from the Texas Hill Country.

A true dark German beer, or “dunkel,” Lobo Negro is a balanced beaut. Decades before light Pilsner lager beers were even a reality for brewers due to the lack of technology allowing them malt that was light in color and dry enough to store properly, dark lagers ruled the scene. Lobo Negro pours a dark brown color with a spicy maltiness that is neither sweet nor too dry. The lager yeast is worked at low temperatures to impart a clean roundness and balance. If beef is what’s for dinner, Pedernales Lobo Negro would be an excellent pairing for those heavy, cowboy dishes.

Recently picked up by Del Papa Distributing Company, Lobo Negro and a selection of its Pedernales companions are now being distributed to the Victoria, Beaumont and Galveston/Texas City areas.

If you’re near Beaumont or Victoria, sample Logo Negro at the Pint Jockeys Monthly Tasting event on May 16. See the full lineup of beer offerings at this month’s tastings in Beaumont, Victoria and Texas City – plus a roundup of all the American Craft Beer Week events along the Texas Gulf Coast – on the Pint Jockeys Facebook page.


As always, cheers, Pint Jockeys!
