(Visited 10/2013): Saint Arnoldís brewing facility is in a large brick building near downtown Houston on Lyons Avenue. There is street parking in front of the building and a lot across the street.

The exterior is pretty, with the brewery name on all sites and above the entrance. There was an old car painted tie-dye with the logo out front on my visit too.

Once inside, you have to go upstairs a couple levels to reach the tasting room. It is set up like a large beer hall with long communal tables. There is a walk up bar on either end. The brewery is visible from the room, and the decor incorporates a lot of Saint Arnold/church themes. There is a large board next to the bar listing the available beers.

Beers are purchased via a token system when a tour is taken, or can be purchased like at a typical tap room. On my visit the 8 or 9 taps included a few of their flagship beers plus some one-offs and seasonals like a Weizenbock, Fresh Hop, Saison and a Bishopís Barrel series augmented with Brett. They also have a few bottles, including more of the Bishopís Barrel series. The bottles must be consumed on premise though.

Service on my visit both at the bar and during the tour was good. The staff clearly cares about what they are doing. The tour includes a souvenir glass as well.

Saint Arnold does not offer food.

Overall this is definitely a worthwhile visit for beer lovers in the Houston area.

Visited mid afternoon on a Wednesday. In a rougher part of town, just outside of downtown Houston. Parking is in the lot near the brewery, or in the larger lot across the street. Cool looking old brick factory, very much a classic brewery feel. The tasting hall takes up most of the second floor and is absolutely huge. Picnic tables as far as the eye can see down the middle, and bars on each end of the hall. Certainly built for crowds. Selection was 8 regulars and 7 special / seasonal beers. I liked the design, cool murals. Fun atmosphere, I am sure this is pretty crazy on a Saturday. I had wanted to visited for years, glad I was finally able to make it.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

A pretty good tasting room though a marginal tour. This brewery used to lead the texas craft scene and still can kill it on occasion and should show it. Huge beer hall and fresh taps. Free ice tea and their major league root beer.

A very fun place to visit on Saturdays. A large open area with big bar at the end. You get four drink tickets and can bring your own food for a picnic type set up. Gets very full so if you donít want to sit on the floor, get there early. A great place to get together with friends.

A fun place to visit on a Saturday. Place was packed with picknicking folks, seated on long Oktoberfest tables. 8 to 10 taps of goodness. The best deal: 8$ for a tour, a glass and 4 tokens.

Rating for the new brewery. Great tour and a very worthy stop. Stopped by on a Monday and it was still pretty busy. Great value, you buy the glass and get tokens. Tour was nicely informative and guided by a very spirited Brock Wagner. Massive brewery with lots of room to grow. Beer service area is a massive brew hall with two different draft stations. They do have a beer engine, but apparently it hasnít been operated in months. No specialty beers on tap during my visit, but still got two new beers I havenít had (being out of Texas for a while). Rootbeer was very stellar on tap. I had a blast and would visit any time that Iím in Houston.

Tiny place. Nice guys that run it. Simple tour as thereís not much there. Points for naming one of the fermenters Hildegard (von Bingen) while having her choral music piped out through the brewery. While not may favorite brewery by far, these guys obviously LOVE their work.

These guys are some of the friendliest and most passionate brew masterís youíll meet. The tour is short and sweet- after all, youíre there for the beer right? Hint: Go to the bulky guy with the pony tail for refills. Sometimes he "forgets" to take your tokens... Iíve never left this place not meeting someone new and having a great conversation with them. Could this be because the beer flows so freely? Hmmm... Fun place!
