(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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

First off, LOTS of people, get ready to stand in a non air conditioned warehouse (in hot houston i might add) and get ready to sweat your ass off!!!! The day i went there was probably close to 350-400 people and everyone wanted that sweet sweet beer.. But if you can take all that in stride and actually find somewhere to sit (impossible) you will actually start having fun! Most people were up for a good chat and the employeeís really seem to enjoy there work! Overall, since this place has become SOOOOOO popular its appeal has lost ground, but if you wear something cool and bring a snack, you should have some fun! and $5 for a taster glass and 4 beers, not that shabby..but buy a pint and get more bang for your buck! I will frequent again but probably in winter! ...Went with mark, omar and the rest of the crew...

Dansting  (114) Overland Park, Kansas | June 29, 2007
Went on a Saturday tour. You get 4 tokens to sample their beers, but if you buy a Saint Arnoldís glass, your token will fill that up instead of the smaller sample glass that is free. People there were very friendly, and the beers were tasty. People actually brought their lunches with them to eat with their free beer. Definitely hit if you are in Houston.
