While I was in Austin, we drove the hour and a half out to Snow’s BBQ in Lexington, Texas. If you haven’t hears of Snow’s read the New Yorker piece and if you are in Austin make sure you make the drive out there.

What happens when a handful of Texas homebrewers decide to not only craft their own spirits, but also to make their own copper and fermented gold wash stills, heat exchangers and hot liquor tanks? Chip Tate and the men of Balcones Distillery distill daily with their hammered, patinaed equipment, crafted from the ground up. The result is some of the best whisky around. That glass in your hand?

Photographer Kenny Braun is one of those people. “Surprisingly there are many people in Texas who don’t even know there are beaches in Texas, much less surfers,” he said via email. “I think most people still associate Texas with either the cowboy or Dallas although, in reality, I think that there are probably more surfers than cowboys in Texas. And a few cowboys who surf as well.”

Braun started surfing in the mid-1970s. He grew up in Houston, where the beach was about 1 ½ hours away. In 2000, Braun started photographing his friends, family, and fellow surfers. His book, Surf Texas, is a beautiful document of a little-known culture.
