Went on a recent Saturday, and had a blast. We arrived around 1:45, paid $8 to get in and to my surprise this included a souvenir glass and four fill ups of your choice of any beer on tap. My little group had a great time, we took the 2:00 tour and the hung around in the biergarten style room... More

Good beer. The tour was informative. They are only open a short time. We did the tour, then went to try beers. They give you several tasting tokens. We were on our second sample and they said last call. We hurried to the bar and got another. We sat down to enjoy and they turned off the lights and said... More

Saint Arnolds now offers gourmet lunch with beer. Buy lunch, and sample all the beer you want to drink with lunch. They have a rotating menu, we have been previously for the Flemish Beef stew, this time it was steamed Mussels, in a great broth, with pomme frites and a nice mixed green salad. They also brew beer, and have... More

It really helps if you like beer, but the Saint Arnold brewery is a great look at craft brewing in Houston even if you aren't' a beer fan. For your $8 tour fee you get a souvenir glass, 4 samples of any beer on tap and a tour of the brewery and history lesson. Plus, you can order some more... More

Houston’s Saint Arnold Brewing is the largest and oldest craft brewery in the state and it is definitely a place worth visiting. It was once located in a smaller, industrial area of the city but the brewery is now housed in a large, historic facility that has plenty of room for the brewery to grow and showcase its award- winning...

Both times we've gone there have always been nice people to share tables with and delicious beer (and root beer if you can't/don't want alcohol!). The first time we took a tour of the plant but the second time we just bought some pretzels and chatted with friends. Highly recommend if you want a nice relaxing afternoon but get there... More

First, the beers are wonderful! Saint Arnold has a great variety, starting with a light (Fancy Lawnmower) and black (Santo) kolsch, to a tasty hefeweizen (Weedwacker), to the malty Brown Ale, and if you crave hops, the Elissa IPA. They also serve seasonal and specialty brews, all on tap. If beer is not your preference, Saint Arnold brews an amazing... More

Nice tour, good beer. Be mindful of the bell for last call for tastings--it comes much sooner than you think!

Saint Arnolds has an excellent selection of tasty beers. There's something for all tastes. For those that like the lighter beers- there's the WeedWacker. If your desire is for something darker- there's the delicious Santo. Upon entering and paying your $8- you will receive a nice 8 ounce brewery glass containing four tokens. Each token can be magically transformed into... More
