I stopped in here on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty empty besides the bartender and one other guy. There is a patio out side. The wood bar kind of zigzags a little inside with tables, a stage, and a pool table. When I walked in the bartender was reading beer reviews on BA. She was very enthusiastic about beer, and let me have a couple of free samples. The selection is pretty good. They have North Coast Scrimshaw and Old Rasputin on tap. Also a tap of Victory Golden Monkey along with several other micros. Lots of bottles/cans of Avery, Oskar Blues, Southern Star, Sam Smith, Chimay, ect. The bartender said they still had some bottles of Avery Brabant that they are saving for a special event. Overall a really good selection and quality. The service can't be beat, and the people that work here really seem to care about quality beer. A place I would highly recommend and will make it a usual stop (no pun intended).

Very unassuming place. I just went by for the second time and I must say I kinda dig the joint. The music was a little loud for my taste but the beer selection was good, the bartenders were nice and the patrons were all friendly. Went on a Tuesday night, sparsely populated. Started in the "lounge area" that has several rather comfy couches. There is a stage inside and across the way a pool table and Golden Tee. Several TV's located throughout and fans strategically placed. The outside patio is roomy and even has a ping pong table. I plan on making return visits.

This is a cool little place that recently opened up on the west side of Houston that a few other BAs pointed out to me. The bar has a lounge feel to it with couches around it to sit on or you can grab a seat at the bar thats not too big. Outside is cool to they have an area out front with picnic tables to enjoy the cooler nights at. During my visit the bartender was quick and enthusiastic about craft beer. The tap selection for a small bar is pretty good they have about 15 different taps that they regularly rotate out with new stuff. They also have a good selection of bottles and cans to choose from. From what I remember getting a few beers from there won't break the bank either. Worth checking out if you find yourself in that part of Houston.
