List Rules Only beers brewed in Texas.

If you're on the hunt for beers to try in Texas, you've come to the right place. The Lone Star State is home to some delicious brews you can only get within its borders. While the state has a reputation for having a blue collar Southern vibe, you'd be surprised at the number of high end craft beers available. However, if you want to stay true to tradition and opt for something simple and classic, there are plenty of Texas breweries that craft basic ales and lagers for your delight! 

Some of the most popular Texas beers are brewed in companies well known throughout the state. Places like Jester King Brewery and Lone Pint Brewery produce beers beloved by Texans everywhere. However, if you're interested in the very local beer scene, there are plenty of craft breweries from Texas that are more obscure and specific to a single town or region. Browse this list and vote your favorites to the top to help determine the best beer in Texas. If you see any craft beers you think are missing, feel free to add them below.
