Finally went to a great craft beer bar in Houston and it felt like home nestled in a neighborhood. First walking in the had seats all around and rustic tables filled the rest of the space. Big size beer garden along with seating out front. If I lived near here I would be here everyday. The service was outstanding and the selection was expansive. The door to the cooler was filled with tap handles, a chalkboard around it with the food menu. Recommend the Duck Tacos BAM!! I had no idea about this place till a fellow advocate suggested we meet there for a trade.

Great Beer, Great Food, Great people (bartenders & customers) Great Place!!!

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.
