No Label Brewing
Last week I was walking around the grocery store when I stumbled across this giant orange monstrosity that was a pile of dozens of different types of pumpkin ales, ciders and other types of beer that breweries felt appropriate to sprinkle fall’s signature flavoring in. Wading through stuff that didn’t interest me, I found a couple of beers that weren’t prominently up front, and to my enjoyment one of those was No Label Brewery’s third Off Label release.
A couple months ago I had the pleasure of reviewing the No Label Brewing Co’s Perpetual Peace. The wee-heavy aged in bourbon barrels was part of the brewery’s Off Label Brew Series, which is a limited production set of beers on the experimental side of things.
Relatively new to the craft brewing scene, No Label Brewing established themselves in Katy, Texas in 2010. Founded by a beer enthusiastic family, Brian Royo, his wife Jennifer, and his parents Gilberto and Melanie all left their respective careers that didn’t have anything to do with beer to pursue the dream of having their own brewery. One of the brewery's projects is called the Off Label Brew Series, which includes experimental beers that didn’t quite fit in the rest of their lineup.
