Most knowledgeable staff youíll find anywhere. Incredible selection. Great happy hour food and drink prices. Comfortable surroundings. My only complaints is how popular it is. Not enough parking in a crowded area. At peak times itís hard to move. Still worth it though

Nice, dim light with some music, not too loud. Gigantic selection of beers, all on tap, served in proper glassware. Pretty good on price. Nice waitresses and bartenders who know their stuff about beer. They have food (I didnít get any though). Excellent place.

Great new beer bar and restaurant. The craft beer selection is probably the best in Houston. The food is outstanding and I hear the chef used to work for the Brennanís restaurants. The place just opened last week so it looked brand new and the decorating was a little sparse. However, I am sure that the place will take on more character as time goes on. I will definitely be going back!

All the best Texas brews plus an outstanding assortment of interesting micros from across the US and a few Belgians thrown in for good measure. Five cask selections in addition to the mess oí regular taps. The food menu ventures well off the beaten path, as well and the couple dishes Iíve tried so far were excellent.

Had a really good time there with friends. Seemed like they really had their shit together and any time Iím in Houston I will be stopping in.

GREAT new addition to the Houston beer scene. Tap selection is, in my opinion, the new standard in town-- and the beers are served in proper glassware. Friendly staff, cool atmosphere. Didnít try any food during my visit but it looked tasty. A winner all around. A must-stop when youíre in Houston.

This place was recommended to me by my friends Leslie & Gonzo at the Saint Arnold Brewery. Amazing beer selection (80 or so on draft) rustic interior put together with bits and pieces of old Houston. Love the varied and unique tap handles!

This is my favorite bar in houston, they have a great selection of brews on tap, great food menu and a goos atmosphere. My and my buddies spent a good 5 hours here and i could have spent more time there if we didnt have other plans. The waitress seemed knowledgeable about the beer ans wasnt afraid to give suggestions when asked.

Great addition to the Houston beer scene. As noted 80+ taps and 5 cask engines-sweet! Nice variety of beers-from Texas to Belgium and everywhere in between. Odd but enjoyable food menu. Too bad this is just a haul from my suburban abode. A must visit if youíre in town.

Yep, agreeing with those below. this place is great. Almost everything about it is off the beaten path. The most common beer they had was Sierra Nevada Pale, and just about everything but that would be hard to find outside of a devoted craft beer bar or really good beer store. And the prices are reasonable. Love it.
