Rudyard's Pub hosts a monthly beer tasting by Joe Apa the third Thursday of the month. Tomorrow is said day, and the cost is $50/per person. I have it on pretty good authority that the food is fantabulous. Seating is limited to 40 people, and the tasting is typically 5-6 beers with an accompanying food course. For additional information (the scoop wasn't posted on their site) please phone Rudz at 713.521.0521. You can pay them over the phone with a credit card to secure your seat. Unfortunately, my Thursdays are spoken for, ugh. One day, I'll play hookey from other obligations and go.
If you do plan to head to Rudz, consider going early to check to see if they received a keg of Weedwhacker from St. Arnold, first release in the Moveable Yeast series. It's out, and likely going fast.
