Came here on 5.5.2018. This brewery is located very close to Houston down town in an old industrial building in the 2nd floor. You feel like in an old church. You are welcome by St.Arnold at the entrance, nice hoppy paintings in the staircase. Beautiful beer hall with large stainless steel brew kettles to your left and beautiful paintings to your right (one is showing beer legend Michael Jackson in a crowd of famos Texans and a large St. Arnold in the background). One of the best and most colorful merchandising selections I have seen for a while (unfortunately not may sizes were available). Beers are good too. Seems they just won a gold medal for their White Beer at the World Beer Cup 2018. One of the best beer places I have found so far in Texas.
Worth a stop to see it at least once. Parking is not the best and we didn’t go at a peak time but I can see it getting crowded in there. Beerwise there is something for everyone and root beer for the kids! Lot of merch and a few games to play.
Excellent visit on a Tuesday afternoon. Good beer and good food. Prices and services were very good. Great atmosphere. The brewery building is quite interesting and well done. You should have a good time here.

Went for Friday pub night-pretty slow for a Friday. Big huge hall of tables. They had about 12 taps-6 usuals and 6 one-offs. They serve a decent menu and often have beer dinners. A good visit if in town.
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.
Visited on 2-18-2013. The tour had ended when I arrived, but I was able to sample their beers which were quite tasty. A couple of their co-workers joined the table while rating their beers which made for quite a bit of fun and interesting conversations. The appearance is a beer hall with picnic style wooden tables. It reminded me of beer halls in Germany. The employees were very friendly and even provided some swag to add to my collection. This establishment is worth visiting and an establishment I would visit again if in the area.
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.
