My favorite bar in Houston and one of my favorite all time bars anywhere. My biggest problem is trying to decide what to get. There are always an incredible amount of drafts to choose from and always many cask selections which is one of the biggest selling points for me. They usual have some vintages on tap at very reasonable prices. My last visit I had a 2011 Stone RIS at the same price of a fresh Stone RIS and so I could try it aged with no effort on my part. The only food I have had is whats on the late-night happy hour such as the pig ears and they were quite delicious. Excellent and attentive staff even when the place is packed.

To echo every other review here, this place is amazing. The happy hour deal is unbelievable (where else where you get Stone IRS for $3?!) and they don't skimp elsewhere, some fantastic options available too.
Atmosphere is very cool, settled down to watch the Germany vs. Brazil World Cup match and was very at home despite being a total stranger to Houston. I can't say enough about the selection, had an excellent Deschutes Obsidian on nitro and Live Oak Hefe, fantastic stuff.
If you're in Houston, pay a visit here, it's worth the trip.
