Brewery
“Saint Arnold is largely credited for the craft beer movement in Texas, and its headquarters and brewing factory is located in a massive three-story red-brick building, originally built in 1914, on the edge of Downtown. Inside, large-scale brewing equipment is on view, and four free half-hour tours are available daily. You don't need tickets, but Saturdays are particularly popular, so show up early. To pass the time, settle into the beer hall, which has a full food menu. 2000 Lyons Ave, Houston, TX 77020”
