Gold Club Iii
2525 Friendswoodlink Rd
Gold Club Iii - Dress up. Gold Club Iii isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. (Probably more than a sore thumb, actually-those don't really stand out when you think about it). The point is: it's a solid place. Bring your A-game.
307 El Dorado Blvd
Timeout - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Timeout kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.
Carlos's Beer Garden
18018 Highway 3
Carlos's Beer Garden - If you're looking to kick back, Carlos's Beer Garden, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.
10943 Scarsdale Blvd
VQ Live - Recently opened south Houston bar promising good local rock acts.
Hearsay Gastro Lounge
218 Travis Street
502 N Friendswood Dr
Cheers Pub - It has it all: a swank atmosphere, attractive crowd, and cheap drinks. Okay, okay, so maybe it doesn't have cheap drinks, but Cheers Pub is still a solid lounge. Not really a dance club, per se, but perfect more a more upscale option.
435 El Dorado Blvd
Fin's Club - In need of a quick drink without the hassle of a doorman? Fin's Club will do the trick. Grab a seat at the welcoming bar and order one of the many brews on hand. The bartender will likely hook you up if you become a regular and then you'll really have your very own place where everyone knows your name.
515 W Bay Area Blvd
Bradley's - Mostly a restaurant with a family crowd, but sporting a long oval bar for all the in-house brew tasters.
10928 Fuqua St
Timeout - Sometimes you just don't want to pay $12 for a drink. On those nights, head out to Timeout, located at [Address]. And while they may be cheaper, they're definitely not weaker.
How do they make beer, wine and liquor?
By Russ Cobbe
It's a good question and one you rarely think about on the way to the store to pick up a bottle or two of alcohol. They all involve some sort of fermenting process, which changes sugars in the ingredients into alcohol.
The basic ingredients are malted barley, yeast, water and sometimes other grains are added. Hops for example are used to make the resulting brew have a bitter flavor. Barley grain is turned into a malt by soaking it in water and allowing the grains to start germinating. The grains are then dried in a kiln, which stops the germination and voila you have malted barley. The malt is ground up and mashed with hot water, which is then boiled, the result is called wort. Next comes the fermentation process which starts with cooling down of the wort and the adding of yeast. The yeast turns the natural sugars that exist in the grain into alcohol over a period of time. The end result of course is beer.
The most important aspect of wine making is deciding when to pick the grapes from the vine. Conditions must be just right for the variety being used and the picking must be done quickly. Stems are removed from the grapes after picking and the skins are generally left on for at least 24 hours. The grapes are pressed to extract the juice from the grape. This juice is allowed to settle to remove any bits of skin. Yeast is added which turns the sugars in the grape juice to alcohol and carbon dioxide. There are specialized yeast cultures that act differently on the grape juice to provide different characteristics. The resulting wine is left so the yeast settles and the wine is drawn off, this can happen multiple times until the wine is clear. The wine is cold stabilized which precipitate white
crystals that are using in making tarter sauce. Finally the wine is filtered and bottled.
Spirits such as Rum, Vodka, Gin and Whiskey have a much higher alcohol percentage than wine o...
