“great place for a brew after some ball”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

went to the Astros vs Rangers opening day game and couldn't find a single place open. Stumbled upon this place and really enjoyed it. Many beers on tap good atmosphere and friendly customers. Staff wasn't as overly friendly the bartender actually told me he was upset cause usually sunday night he was already home but because of the game he had to stay open.

Still closed around midnight so fairly early.

“85 Taps and great food.”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

The pork sandwich and the local brews are awesome. Lack of parking. 85 taps of some awesome regional beers was a real plus.

“Amazing selection of beer”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Great list of beers, arranged by category on the menu, with a good description of each. Look for the specials of the night, $3 drafts of stuff you never get anywhere else. Wait staff was courteous and helpful. Food was OK, but beer is the attraction. Worth repeat visits to sample beer from all over the world.

“The best stop for the best beer”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

When staying in downtown Houston for business, this is always either a lunch or after dinner stop for me. They have tasty food and a selection of beer that will baffle many, but it's a sweet list for those who enjoy and know their beers. Join the club and work your way through enough different beers to earn your plate, or just visit for a variety that will please every beer drinker in your party.

“Tap beer!!!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

This bar has a huge selection of tap beers, almost similar to Delirium in Belgium, but with American beers. If you like beer, I think is a must go in Houston!
