Influenster Staff Pick: Saint Arnold Endeavour IPA

Saint Arnold Endeavour IPA

Sip Tips: “This small brewery in Houston is best known for its flagship ‘lawnmower’ wheat beer, but its Imperial IPA is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. It’s piney, floral, and hoppy, but what makes it my favorite is that despite having such a robust pool of flavors, it’s still extremely drinkable. 5 stars!” - Jack, Partnerships Strategist

Home State: Texas, founded 1994

Sip Tips: "Victory Prima Pils is hoppy pilsner that has a ton of hop flavor without being too bitter. It’s a great everyday beer for any beer nerd. No matter how many times I’ve had it, I never get sick of it—which I don’t think I can say about any other beer." - Mike, CTO
