This place is very large. Several TV's, it is always crowded and loud. Usually hard to find a seat. A long bar with a huge tap wall. There is an area upstairs that is usually reserved for parties. The Saucer sometimes lets BA have a tasting upstairs. The service can be spotty. Though the waitresses are well informed about what they have. Correct glassware and temps. The selection is great. Lots of local Texas beers, many US micros, and good Imports. The selection is always rotating. Probably the best selection in town. The food is nothing special at all. Some pizzas, brats, pretzels. Most of the food is just appetizers, and bland pub grub. Overall this is a place to find some good beers in downtown Houston.

The selection is so damn impressive that it is worth putting up with the other downfalls (spotty service especially when at a table, always crowded, and crazy chaos). Though I still enjoy coming here on occasion. The mangers do an excellent job as well. It probably has a better selection than Gingerman, but I think the atmosphere and service is much lower here.

A number of taps may have been on longer than optimal.

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.
