Draft Magazine's July/August 2012 issue published a quick survey of Texas' growing beer scene. There were nice surveys of Austin, Dallas and Houston. I knew about the breweries in each town, and about a couple of the bars, but the addition of beer friendly restaurants was a nice touch. And there's also a Rauchbier Ribs recipe using Ranger Creek's Mesquite Smoked Porter.
