This place could get two different kinds of ratings: an awesome place early in the day when no ones around but jesus, turns unbearable at night, takes 20-30 mins to order a beer and you have to shout at the top of your lungs at the same time .. . Great burger, horrible horrible fries. One bathroom for the entire place, took 30 mins just to pee. place has grow to big for its boots.. i will only go again if in the area and if they expand the bathrooms, servers, and taps.. but the 10 taps they do have were quality, mostly big beers- no sessions... they do the occasion cask and the parkings a joke, maybe 7 spots then all down the streets. ..

Surprised at the residential neighborhood location. Got there on a Tuesday right after they opened. Was already pretty crowded. Not too many seats inside. Larger area outside (not good on this particularly colder (for Houston) day). Great selection of beer (you couldn't go wrong with any of them), but what I was really after was trying out some Brash stuff, which is right down the street. I was not disappointed.

I was most surprised by the quality food to match the quality draft list. Did not expect that.

This is a great place.

neighborhood bar for me. have around 30 taps, all quality craft. typically weighted toward hoppier and higher abv beers. fairly priced, good food, but its not quick when busy. limited inside seating, but tons outside. fun, laid back vibe. my favorite place to drink in houston.

a few extra notes if you havent visited:
-there is no waitstaff. order beers and food at the bar. your food will be delivered to your table, however.
-no dogs. kids are allowed, but you dont see them too often.
-no tvs
-no darts, bar games.
