Brewery
$
“Houston’s craft brew scene has positively exploded in the last few years, but it all started with Texas’ oldest craft brewery, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, in 1994. Today, the patron saint of beers has expanded to include a sprawling beer garden and restaurant, in addition to its beer hall, brewing facilities, and a lineup of tasty suds—from year-rounds like the clean Fancy Lawnmower and bright & hoppy 5 O’Clock Pils to seasonal standouts like Pumpkinator and Oktoberfest. 8th Wonder Brewery is another local fave, rocking a WonderWorld outdoor beer garden and fun zone alongside taps of Dome Faux’m cream ale, Hopston Texas IPA, and Rocket Fuel, a Vietnamese coffee porter that fits right in H-town. But don’t stop there.”
