Fainmous BBQ spent eight years serving Tennessee barbecue in the neighborhood of Meyerland. Last year the owners, James and Karen Fain, decided to uproot and replant in Sawyer Yards.
The doors opened last week at 1201 Oliver St., next to Urban South HTX Brewery.
The barbecue joint specializes in Tennessee barbecue, meaning its specialty is pork, not beef as it is in Texas-style barbecue restaurants. Fainmous is also known for its vinegar-based sauces.
Local breweries join ‘Black is Beautiful’ initiative
Weathered Souls Brewing Company, based in San Antonio, organized an initiative that will have breweries selling a “Black is Beautiful” beer to raise money for organizations working on police reform.
The initiative calls for breweries to produce their own version of Weathered Souls’ Black is Beautiful oatmeal stout and donate the proceeds to local organizations.
Houston breweries have joined forces with the initiative, including area brewers such as Astral Brewing, 4816 N. Shepherd Dr., and Holler Brewing Company, 2206 Edwards St.
