    The Beer Companion ($10.5) and the Spinach & Artichoke Dip ($7.25) come with the most sumptuous mini-loaf of warm bread. Grab 'em quick w/any brew!! Only downside: brews are not ice-cold, a-la-Europe!

    The Ginger Man knows that the key to success is to do one thing and do it well. The thing they do well is beer. The menu features a huge selection of beer from around the world and many local crafts

    Doesn't matter if you're looking for a local IPA on nitro or a national favorite, or a Belgian Tripel, they have it! They just have the best beer selection... And a super cosy atmosphere

    One of the coolest little pubs in Houston. Grew up going here. Always a friendly crowd, great ambiance, excellent tunes on the jukebox, and more beer choices than you could dream of... A+++

    A snake bite is Cider and Lager mixed 50/50. Guinness and Cider is much nicer and is called a Black and Tan in the UK, for a Black Velvet sub the cider with champagne

    Service is slow on front patio. Either go to the bar and order or get a seat inside. One of the best international beer lists in Houston though.

    One of the few places I can find Live Oak Hefeweisen in Houston, which is my favorite beer after the bartender here suggested it... Try it! You'll probably love it ;)

    This is a great beer bar if you're looking for a solid selection of craft beer. If you want food and beer, not so much.
