For those of you that had a chance to read last week’s Travel Tuesday post, the sneaky skyline photo of Houston was taken on the rooftop of the Saint Arnold Brewery! Last spring I was sent there on an assignment by Edible Austin Magazine to take photos for a magazine article they were publishing. Not a bad gig, if I say so myself. If you would like, you can read that article online and see some of the photos by clicking here. I had the opportunity to meet, photograph and talk with the founder, Brock Wagner, and was excited to discover that he’s a really cool guy! But I would say that you’d have to be, in order to come up with such a great craft beer and brewery. I’d been to Saint Arnold once before with my boyfriend (now husband) and friends. We did one of their weekend brewery tasting tours, so I knew a little about what I was getting myself into. But this time, I got to see it all…even the making in action. I learned WAY more about the craft beer making process than I ever thought possible. I knew it was good stuff already, but now I understood why! Just in time to wrap everything up by happy hour, with a nice frosty beverage, overlooking the busy skyline of Houston. I’m sure you guys can understand that I had to make SURE it was still good stuff!? ;-) From what I understand (for obvious safety reasons), not just anyone is allowed to go up onto the roof, so I’m very excited to have had the opportunity. It was a pretty amazing way to end a very cool photo shoot. Have I mentioned lately, just how much I love what I do!? If you haven’t visited the Saint Arnold Brewery, you should definitely make time to do so this spring. And if you live in Houston, you just might be excited to hear that Edible HOUSTON will soon be published on a magazine rack near you soon!
