Saint Arnold continues to add new features to the brewery experience. About 6 months ago, they started doing lunches during the weekday. It is a set lunch that rotates everyday served from 11:00 to about 1:30. Usually a salad and an entree. Once you order your lunch at the front register, your number will be called out on the loud speaker when it is ready, and pick it up at the back counter by the taps.

On my most recent visit they had a chopped salad and Pork Tenderloin with this amazeballs fig and onion Balsamic Relish, served with grilled carrots and English peas. A really good rustic, and flavorful dish. Other days it could be anything from chicken fried steak to Belgian Mussels. All excellent.

The regular tour times are still the same, and now during Saturday tours they will have small snacks for purchase. Like Pretzels, Brats, etc.

Of coarse they can not sell beer to go yet, but now you can buy pints at the brewery. There are at least three casks, and they will have Divine Reserves and Bishops Barrel on offer. They still do the regular tour tasting, with the glass and tokens. Though being able to buy a cask Amber, which paired perfectly with the Pork Tenderloin for lunch is awesome. It is also nice being able to buy a cask/BB/DR, if you don't want to do tokens at all during the tour hours. Outside of those, the selection is pretty much their standard fair.

I really like how Saint Arnold continues to try things and make the brewery experience fun and different than just a warehouse vibe that the other breweries do in Houston. The Harry Potter/German beer hall area is a great relaxed vibe, and an excellent lunch on a weekday.

I have a great time every time I end up here.

The lunch is generally always superb. They usually have something unique on tap or some of their more rare bottles available.

The events they throw here are always really well done. Saint Arnold and Karbach are well ahead of the others in town in regards to how nice their taproom and environment are.

The vibe was really cool here and the tap room is fun, but their beer selection isn't great. They didn't have food the day I was there so nothing special.
