News

Drinking Made Easy came to San Antonio to hit the hot spots and try our local libations. In addition to historic spots like the Menger Hotel, Esquire Tavern, and Tower of Americas, they stopped by Ranger Creek to talk beer and whiskey! Take a look at our clip from the show, which originally aired on October 10, 2012.

Small Batch Series No. 2 was recognized in DRAFT magazine as one of the Top 25 Beers of 2012! We’re humbled by the recognition and proud to represent Texas on a distinguished list that includes breweries like Rogue, Cigar City, Left Hand, Stone, and Russian River.
