    Bring an open mind and a thirst for something new. The majority of beers here you've never heard of (they're hand-picked), but never fear - the bartenders are happy to help you make a selection.

    This was our first time here. Don't come hungry, the wait was long (45+ min). I had the shepherd pie, but I liked my husbands rancor burger better. I suggest going with the reviews of everyone else.

    my last two trips here were not gluten free friendly :( HOWEVER, pre GF days I enjoyed their food and beer. The atmosphere is still great too :)

    Try a beer you've never had before. The bar tenders are knowledgable and passionate about their well-curated beer list. Also, the lamb burger is awesome!

    Craft beer Nirvana in Houston! Great food too, but order as soon as you arrive to mitigate the wait. Then just kick back and enjoy!

    AWESOME burgers (get the chutney fries with any burger, thank me later) and a constantly rotating tap/bottle selection. Sweet fire pit out back.

    Houston's first full-scale craft beer bar is still its most respected, if a little worn around the edges from years of cask-tappings and vertical tastings. Read more

    Don't let the neighborhood fool you - a total hidden gem with a fabulous patio out back. Try the rosemary parmesan fries.

    The beer selection isn't extremely unusual but the staff is extremely helpful if you are looking for something new. The patio is where you want to hang out

    They rounded UP my tab to the next dollar. It was only 27 cents, but lets do some math, Round up 100 customers’ bills @ .25¢ each night=$25 x 6 nights a week=$150 a week=$600 a month. Is this legal?

    The rancor and hulk are both amazing! And they always have the best beers on tap! One of my favorite bars.

    Brews and pub burgers, at a laid back pace? Yep, this is the place. And smack dab in the middle of a quiet neighborhood. How hip!

    Nice that it's in the neighborhood, but if you are not a beer connoisseur, you might have a difficult time finding a beer.

    Low-key local joint that has tons of beers & specializes in IPAs. Bartender has been known to shared a patron's homebrew. Wish they were open daytime hours, too. Love the no-frills attitude.
