The selection is undeniably the best in Texas, after that, the place has little to offer compared to smaller places like The Hay Merchant or The Petrol Station. Many downtown douches frequent this place keeping it from truly being a fun beer hangout, in my humble opine. Nevertheless, after moving to Seattle I can now say that I have experienced much better but this is towards the best Texas has to offer until laws change. Cool reward club allows frequent drinkers to chart their progress (?) and get points for drinking more. Works for everybody. The lady and I ate across from a guy taking his daughter on a date but his phone was his best friend, poor lil' gal. Waitress was being hit on by businessmen wishing and hoping, praying and preying. This bar as compared to the dive bars across the street highlight the lack of middle class in our country. What happened to middle class pubs? When in Texas, if in Texas again, I will stop by again to see if my views have changed or if my jaded self has been correct in its assesment. Are there 4 s's in that word? Anyhoo, give this place a shot and see what you think, it is truly a sight to be seen but consider if you want to become what the regulars here are. (1,213 characters)

I love this place. We try to visit it whenever we are in the area. Overwhelming selection of beers (in a good way) but the staff is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The only downside is its popularity. It could double in size and it would still be crowded most nights. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but beware that it gets pretty crowded and loud. (362 characters)

Huge bar with a phenomenal selection on tap, and many really nice bottles from all over the world. The staff is very friendly. I had a nice experience tasting some local Texas offerings. This is very similar to their other locations, so if you have been to one you can expect the same in Houston. The food was okay and could be better, but it is a great beer bar. (367 characters)

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. (474 characters)
