They have non-sour beers as well. Noble King is a good farmhouse IPA and Black Metal is a great imperial stout.

If I remember correctly I think they said they were building a new barrel room (the current one is pretty tiny). Hopefully in a year or two they will have a much larger production capability.

I'm not a big trader by any means.... but they are one of the best beers to trade with people outside of Texas.

I'm not a big fan, but I'm glad they do what they do.

Yeah, if farmhouse and sour aren't words that get you tingly, most of JK is not for you.

The people that own Nobi Public House also own a Vietnamese restaurant called Nobi Asian Grill on 528 near Blackhawk. At this location, they also own a Shell gas station that has a ton of craft beer. Definitely check them out if you're out that way.

I was fortunate to be one of the first 200 folks to their open house. Their beers then were what put them on the map. I still enjoy the black metal but some of the stranger things they've been brewing have turned me away. Thirsty Planet is just around the corner.

I still like most of the beers but lately they have been doing a lot of fruit infused beers which isn't my thing at all.

On another note: guy at LHBS told me that Mad Meg, Noble King and Petite Prince will be released again soon using their native yeast.

I just learned about this place this week and need to check it out. I am lucky enough to work in Freeport and just checked out a small grocery store that gets surprisingly good beers this week. Sure enough, El Cedro, Noble King, Wunderkind, Wytchmaker, Petit Prince and Mad Meg were all there.

El Cedro was absolutely amazing. Next time I see it I'm buying them out!

Oh, I frequent both regularly. Was going to the gas station a couple of years before they opened NPH.

Im' going to try and make it to Nobi today to get some Lagunitas Sucks on tap before it is gone.

Head down to Lake Jackson, they had 4-5 bottles left on Wednesday. I have two in my bottle storage and one in the fridge right now.
