Many are surprised by College Station’s great beer scene, whether from College Station breweries or from a couple of miles out on the shelves of HEB. While we may not have as many breweries as bigger Texas cities, the one’s we do have are all about quality. We tasted a few from New Republic, Blackwater Draw, and Karbach to create a beginners profile to the local brews in Aggieland.

Dammit Jim is perfect for those just getting into craft beer. It’s heavy enough that you can really appreciate the craft, yet it’s still easy enough to drink for those new to beer with hops. Dammit Jim has a great amber taste with a sharp finish.

The Kadign has a delicious champagne color with a light and crisp profile. This blonde has a nice yeast taste that is subtle enough to still feel like a lighter beer.

This beer is thick and citrusy with a good amount of hops. If you’re a fan of Karbach’s Weekend Warrior, you’ll love Whipsaw.

This is another really dark colored beer that takes your tongue off guard. It has a unique, spicy taste from the sweet potato that leaves a coffee-like finish.

Marlinspike is a perfect gateway into more robust beers, with a toasty malt taste and bitter finish. The beer has a smooth and dark color and a delicious nose.

This is one of our favorite beers because it is perfect for people new to craft beers as well as those who have been around them. It has a great yeasty taste with a smooth taste that goes down easy.

This beer has the same great yeasty taste as the Mulligan but with a little more of a bite. It has a great mix of hops and malt to make it extra crisp.

This is another great coffee brew in College Station. Blackwater was spot on with this one—it tastes like it came straight out of a Keurig. This beer has a beautiful coffee brown color with a tasty caramel and wheat flavor. The coffee is subtle enough in the after taste that it still feels like beer.

This is a great beer for anyone who loves hops and malts. Timber Snake has the same great bitter crispness as Karbach’s Weekend Warrior and New Republic’s Whipsaw.

The Brewjeria is like the Extra Pale Ale, but much more amplified. This beer features an intense blend of malt and spice.

This lager features subtle malts under the citrusy hops, making it both refreshing and robust. The light gold beer has an amazing aroma and tasty cashmere hops.

Tart and citrusy, this IPA has a little bit deeper color than BWD’s IPL. Wheat malts make up the bold taste of this IPA.

This beer is crisp and light, leaving you happy with not too much bloat. It features a nice amber color with a wheat base and a little bit of a bite.

Hopadillo takes the bitterness from Weekend Warrior and turns it up two notches. This crisp beer goes down surprisingly easy for such a hop forward brew.
