Heard great things about this place, and decided to give it a try. Its not a big place but has a decent amount of seating, and what I really like about this place is, keep in mind I was their on an early Saturday night, it doesn't get insanely packed to where you're fighting for your life to get a beer. Not a ton of taps, around 30 now because I think they did away with the coffee but dont quote me on the coffee line. But what they do have is pretty good and with that in mind I will be going back soon.

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.
