    I will be visiting thw in-laws in Lake Jackson from the Seattle. Where are the closest and best places to buy bottles to bring home?? Also is there something they have right now I need to be asking for?

    Also, if we go out to eat is there a bar or whatever that had a nice tap list?

    Thanks for anyones help. Cheers!

    Not sure about Lake Jackson but Galveston and Webster/Clear Lake are close by. Spec's as usual, Nobi Public House in Clear Lake/Webster, Brews Brothers in Galveston on the Strand along with Barefoot Beach Club? also on the Strand.

    If it has to be in Lake Jackson. I recommend Wursthaus. German food. Saint Arnold which is Texas' oldest craft brewery has their Bishop's Barrel #2 out very limited run and only bars or restaurants get it. Wursthaus has it. It's an old ale aged in chardonnay barrels with sour cherries. Wursthaus' taps change out fairly often. Food King which is a grocery store not too far from Wursthaus has a surprising selection of bombers. Outside of LakeJackson the Smith Street Spec's in downtown Houston usually has a good selection. Nobi's Public House in Webster has great beers on tap. Flying Saucer in Sugarland has great tap selection.

    Thanks for the hints guys. Went to Wursthaus for lunch today and had the St. Arnold's Barrel #2. That was a really nice beer that had a little bit of tartness I really liked. Picked up a 6pack and a couple bombers at Food King and they did have a decent selection.

    There are talks about Galveston tomorrow but we will see.

    Finally got to try Sculpin!

    The Specs on 61st in Galveston has a lot of bottles that make it out of Houston and since Galveston is literally an island those bottles don't move quickly, so there is a solid selection. I personally would hit up Brews Brothers and avoid Beerfoot Beach Bar as it really is not that great of a bar unless you just have time to spend looking at different bars.
