This is the spot for craft beer lovers as the choices are incredible. You can join their club and work your way towards 200 different beers and a plate on the wall, or just enjoy selections ranging from cheap to you better savor it because it cost an arm and a leg. I had the make your own pizza with... More

Pizza was amazing, salad was amazing. There are one hundred different beers to taste and sample, they even do "flights" of beers so people can taste whatever they want. It was a fun experience pre game and is walking distance from Minuit Maid Park so it was an ideal stop before the game. You can tell it is also a... More

Ate here twice with wife, both had diff. items each night. Enjoyed it all. Great beer selection as well. Tough to find places open after baseball game downtown. This was very good.

As soon as you walk in you can't help but be impressed by the enormous amount of tap beers available. We had a couple of local drops that were a perfect foil to the heat outside. Good food and friendly staff as well - this place is clearly a post work favourite for the locals.

Good food and service. Fun atmosphere. Tremendous choice of beers, both tap and bottled. Can't wait to go there again! Reuben was very good. Somewhat of a sports bar feel but not "in your face" with TV.

In town for a Astro's game. Liked the name of the bar and thought I would give it a try. Was very pleasantly surprised. A HUGH selection of beers. Great service and fun atmosphere.

We visited after watching the Houston Astros, only 0.5 of a mile away. Excellent selection of draft craft Ales and bottled or canned ales, 200+ I believe. There is waitress service and run up a tab or you can order at the bar and pay as you go. Great atmosphere and interesting decor. A must visit!

My husband and I were out looking for a place to grab a quick bite and some drinks when we stumbled upon this place. It was located right next to the hotel we were staying at. It was very busy, but we quickly found a table to sit at. The beer menu was packed full of a great selection of... More

I've never seen so many beer choices. Pages and pages of choices. Food was okay but the main point to this place is the beer.

Although place is crowded, waiter could find a table for 5:-) You can not only drink there so many kinds of beer, but also eat good and spicy food:-)
