On Saturday, I took a Daytrip to a BBQ joint and a Brewery.
I started out at the Reveille Barbecue Company in Magnolia. I found them as they were listed in Texas Monthlys Top 25 NEW BBQ joints in Texas.
They don't have any indoor seating. You just walk up to the window and place your order....then you either take it to go, or they have some covered picnic tables. It was a nice day, so I sat at the picnic table.
Their menu can change from week to week, but they do have the basics.
I ordered my "usual" 1/2 lb of brisket, a sausage....and this time I got a side of their cheesy grits.
The sausage I got was cooked in an IPA from Lone Pint (also in Magnolia) and was in the top 3 of Sausages I've had at the various BBQ places I've hit in the past few years.
The brisket was ALSO top 3 on my list. It was so tasty, I barely used their BBQ sauce...it didn't need it!
The grits were ok, but then again I can't remember the last time I had grits.
All and all, if you like BBQ, I'd recommend you try them.
After filling up on great BBQ, I drove about 10 miles to get to the Fire Ant Brewpub in Tomball
They had about 15 different beers they've created. I chose to get the sampler of 4 (thankfully I got to choose the 4)
I really liked the Cream Ale. There's was one of the better ones around. The other 3 I tried, Kolsch, Bock & Heaven (which was a wheat) were good for what they were.
I sat at the bar, and the staff was very friendly. I think my friend and I had 3 different bartenders/waitstaff chat with us about different things.
They also served food, but i was still so full from the BBQ, I didn't order anything to eat.
They are downtown Tomball, and have both indoor and outdoor seating, with the outdoor seating 2 levels. I had a good experience there and would go back, if I'm ever in the area.
It was a fun trip out of town, and just over an hour drive there, and an hour back. I like to try and do something different each month.
Hope you had a good weekend
