It's time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with our first interview and a Texican craft beer: No Label's Don Jalapeño, a spring seasonal chili beer based on their Pale Horse pale ale, but made with 30 pounds of raw jalapeños and 30 pounds of roasted jalapeños.
No Label is a family-owned brewery out of Katy, Texas (near Houston) that couldn't decide on a name to represent every family member, so they settled on No Label.
Instead of news this week, we talk about our ride on the Dallas Brew Bus and interview Matt Dixon and Jordan Moon from Dallas Brew Scene, who run the bus.
We discuss how Matt and Jordan got their start, fending off rivals, the increasing tap competition in Dallas, their gateway beers (Shiner, Pyramid Hefeweizen, Kasteel, Stone IPA and Arrogant Bastard), their favorite beers, brewing education, how macrobrewers are helping craft beer, favorite beer cities (Portland and Munich), the beers that blow them away (Sam Adams Utopias and Goose Island King Henry) and how contentious the craft beer scene is coming in Dallas.
