I like beer.

A lot.

Heck, I even have a piece of custom art on my office wall that was created using beer advertisements.

One worry that I had when I made West Texas my home, was that Lubbock was going to be living in the dark ages when it came to great craft beer. That we were going to be stuck in a Shiner Bock and Lone Star Beer circle of creativity. However, as Lubbock is a college town, that usually lends itself to creative types who have a shared love of science and getting hammered. Happily, I can report that we are not a desert of flat, flavorless, fizzy fermentation.

As described by 10Best:

"Beer lovers will find Lubbock’s newest brewpub inside the historic Pioneer Building in downtown. The Brewery LBK serves its brews in a modern industrial space, complete with a pet-friendly patio. Food options include wings, burgers, fried chicken and Crusty's Wood Fired Pizza."
