Nice open front room with a long bar, not surprisingly, saucers adorn the wall. Some decorative, others are commemorative of those complete the UFO tour (or what have you). If I was local, it would be my quest. Service was good for the most part, the "beer goddess" was pretty knowledgable, but toward the end of our visit, we felt slightly looked over and it to a while to get our last drink and dessert orders in. There's sh*t tons of taps and even more in bottles. I like they they are happy to pour samples, and building your own flight is a great feature. The menu wasn't completely up to date, but they keep a chalkboard to help fill in the blanks. Both the wife and my food was quite tasty (Rueben and the hummus pita sandwich). The food prices where cheap with the portions you got. There's typically a daily special offering great draft prices. I was there on Sunday, which is $3 Texas beers. Our 2 meals, 4 drinks, and 1 dessert didn't even break $40. That's a win.

Great place, and I'm sure I'll be back again during my stay.

This is a really cool place to visit or frequent for that matter. they have an incredible selection of beers. long lists of beer in bottles or cans. and an overwhelmingly large variety on tap. very impressed with their offerings. they don't have many activities like pool or darts (although some) but hey, who cares when theres a cold brew in your hand. wish they had a better outdoor seating arrangement. regardless, this place in the go-to joint for good beer in Houston.
