4.48/5  rDev -4.5%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | food: 3.5 | $$

Better than the rating can possibly give considering that I have visited many places like this across the country. This IS THE BEST TEXAS can offer, no doubt. Growler refills! I drive 40 miles to find this and will not complain. My lady and I celebrated my 33rd birthday here without mentioning it and were treated like I did. Refilled my growler with (512)2 for $24.95 and purchased a 1/2 growler of their Pecan Porter(for $4.50 without refill but w/ HM logo, beer only $12-) for reasonable price anywhere S of Mason-Dixon. Multiple, awesome cask selections which made me quite happy. Nitro for those of you as well. Food was not the best but that is what I read ahead of time and expected and did not mind considering I went during off-peak hours on a Thursday evening. Parking could be troublesome most times when mating occurs. GO TO THIS PLACE during off hours if you want to avoid stereotypical Houston douchbags. Lived here for 66% of life and can honestly say that finding a place like this is rare and worth any true beer drinkers time. On par with rest of country as far as options are concerned.

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.
