My favorite craft beer place to hit in Houston.

Went to their 4th Anniversary.. what a great job they did there.. so many great and hard to find beers. One of the best beer days I've had. 512 BB Pecan Porter... enough said there... oh yeah.. old Rasputin from 2010... Saint Arnold BB1 and Pumpkinator.. beers from Lagunitas, DFH, Stone, Real Ale and so many others...

The Rancor Burger is fantastic.. as are the fries.. add some parmesan cheese or truffle oil.

Taps rotate all the time which is awesome. They always have two or three beers I haven't had before it seems.

If you are in Houston, hit this place up.

I really like the vibe of this place. My kind of laid-back joint...Staff seemed knowledgeable and they were friendly. Good selection of beers, albeit not the largest in Houston. We sat outside and enjoyed my first Brash beer. Anxious to go back (slightly less excited about Brash beers but I will give them another shot with a different style).

Surprised at the residential neighborhood location. Got there on a Tuesday right after they opened. Was already pretty crowded. Not too many seats inside. Larger area outside (not good on this particularly colder (for Houston) day). Great selection of beer (you couldn't go wrong with any of them), but what I was really after was trying out some Brash stuff, which is right down the street. I was not disappointed.

I was most surprised by the quality food to match the quality draft list. Did not expect that.

This is a great place.

neighborhood bar for me. have around 30 taps, all quality craft. typically weighted toward hoppier and higher abv beers. fairly priced, good food, but its not quick when busy. limited inside seating, but tons outside. fun, laid back vibe. my favorite place to drink in houston.

a few extra notes if you havent visited:
-there is no waitstaff. order beers and food at the bar. your food will be delivered to your table, however.
-no dogs. kids are allowed, but you dont see them too often.
-no tvs
-no darts, bar games.
