Had a tasty steak and Swiss sammich and got to watch my Butler Bulldogs, so it was going to be a successful outing. But then I tried a couple of the beers. Outstanding beers. Beer to write reviews about. Beers to savor. This is a hipster beer bar where everybody has a beard and wears plaid, but did I mention... More

To be honest my husband and I went here for the great selection of beer. The waitress was ever so knowledgeable and very helpful with recommendations of which beers to drink. The food was fantastic as well and very tasty. Very memorable place and the start of our holiday. Hopefully, we will return one day!

We stopped in here for lunch during Super Bowl weekend. We sat at the bar. I ordered a soda, while we looked over the menu. Unfortunately, they were only offering a limited menu because of the expected volume due to the Super Bowl and they didn't have what we had seen on the menu online, on the reduced menu. So,... More

Visiting downtown Houston for Super Bowl. Went there for lunch based on reviews. Loved the decor and our waitress was so sweet. Lots of beer on tap and in bottles, but no usual domestic beer offerings. The locals weren't too happy about the shorter "Super Bow" menu. They were definitely understaffed for the extra folks in town for the game... More

We were in town for super bowl and had this place recommended to us for their beer. One in our group is not a beer drinker so he ordered hard drinks. We didnt try any food but all of the drinks were excellent and the service was good. They are one of the few places open late during the week... More

We stopped by on way back to hotel and had a beer. Location is great and loved the beers. It was a beautiful day and we wanted to sit outside. It took a while for the server to greet us, put after she did it was all good.

We went on mlk day and it was not very crowded. The beer menu was very extensive. I was able to taste 2 beers in order to decide what I wanted. My husband ordered a sandwich and I ordered the pretzel sandwich. My husband enjoyed his sandwich and I loved my pretzel. It was soft and moist and did not... More

Stayed nearby and ended up here 3 of 5 nights in Houston! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, huge selection of beers on tap (the various flights available was a great option), and the food was excellent - pub food with a bit of a foodie twist. So good.
