“Fun outdoor hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

I went here on a Saturday afternoon and had a great time. The brewery has a large area outside for patrons to drink, eat, and play games. We did the brewery tour while we were there which was a great deal. $7 for the smallest glass of beer with 4 refills. They have several sizes of glasses you can buy ranging from $7 to $15 (each with 4 refills). There was also a food truck parked in the outdoor seating area. Parking was easy enough. We just parked along the side of the road but there is a large dirt parking lot as well.

“Fun Saturday Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Lots of picnic tables for enjoying their great beers outside. The tour is worth going on - knowledgable staff answering questions and showing you around the sites of the brewery. Get to the brewery early though, seats fill up quickly and the tasting is only from 12-3. $7 for 3 pints - a better deal than any bar in midtown!

“Brewery adventure done right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I went to Karbach Brewing after several trips to St Arnolds locations and Southern Star Brewery. Karbach was welcoming, clean and well run. The beers available were good quality although they do limit you on their Rodeo Clown due to the high alcohol content.
Bring a folding chair and an umbrella if you will be sitting outside. There was a food truck there serving which negated the need for bringing your own food but snacks are always a good idea.
The crowd was young, energetic and friendly. We have taken our kids to other tours before and we would take them here as well. Just be sure to keep them in check.
We did not do the tour itself but saw several groups of people at various times walking around on the tour.
Good stop to pair up with other Houston attractions on a Saturday in the spring or fall.

“Cool place, great beer.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

I like to visit many breweries, this is a small but good one. The tour is rather simple, but who goes to breweries for the tour? On to the beer.... The servers are very generous with their pours , especially if you buy the larger glass. Not much room inside to chill, unless you want to stand. Outside is larger with place to sit. Bathrooms need to be addressed. 1 bathroom inside and 2 portable toilets outside. When you charge 8 bucks for a 6 pack of cans, you should be able to afford better facilities. Overall it is a great place to go if you want to have a drink, or a few! I've been twice and plan to return.

Fantastic little brewery off of 290. Nice selection of craft beers. Cool atmosphere. Always fun food trucks there for some munchies. Bring your dog and a chair!
