"'Houston Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in the Bayou City' takes us on a surprising journey that begins at a time when you were more likely to find a saloon than a church spire. Indeed, this city with deep-rooted connections to space exploration and the oil and gas industry finds beer to be an integral part of daily life as far back as the mid-1800s....Thankfully, for Houstonians and fans of brewing history everywhere, Houston Beer proves Crocker was more than up to the challenge." --Examiner.com
