Say hello to Howdy Beer, a Colorado craft pilsner

It's been a minute since a beer mail made its way to my door, but that drought recently ended with the delivery of a Colorado-based crispy lager which is now available in Texas.

Say hello to Howdy Beer (4.5% ABV), a Western pilsner originally created by The Post Brewing Co. - a "chicken and beer" establishment with over a half-dozen locations across Colorado. I've visited the original spot in Lafayette myself, so I'll just add it's a place where comfort food pairs well with an array of classic craft beer styles.

As for Howdy Beer, it's bright and quaffable with crackery malt, floral aromas and a light touch of lemongrass. It's brewed "with Western livin' in mind," which they say applies to enjoying a craft beer on the river, in the mountains, or on the porch. Here in Texas, though, you'll most likely end up on the patio or poolside while enjoying this warm weather refresher.

So, how does Howdy get here? It comes to us by way of Stem Ciders of Lafayette after being brewed and packaged by Sleeping Giant Brewing Co. of Denver. The cider company purchased the rights to Howdy Beer in early 2022, with plans to increase production and distribute the beer to states outside of Colorado. Texas, as it turns out, was one of the first on the list.

Now that it's here, you too can introduce yourself to what's billed as "the friendliest beer in America." Look for Howdy Beer on tap or in six-packs of 12-ounce cans at the following North Texas locations:
