If you want the low down on the new No Label Brewery in Katy, and can't make it to the brewery itself, this is the place to go. Located in a fairly nice shopping center, and has a nice vibe. Low key pseudo Irish pub. The owner has joked that they really are not anything close to that, and it is nice to see a sense of humor. A smallish, half rectangle bar to the left as you walk in. Dark wood with some booths and tables that fill out the rest of the open room. Plenty of TV's for sports and some music playing. Calm a relaxing.

When I visited they were training a new bartender/waitress. So service was slow. Though I was in no rush, and could tell the new girl was getting flustered on a Friday evening. So really no harm. The owner is friendly, and knowledgeable about local Texas beer. Besides the owner, nobody really knows much about the beer though.

The food menu is fairly small, standard, but good. A few sandwiches, burgers, fish and chips. Standard as it my be, the food is still good.

On to the beer. They have 10 taps of good quality. Clean lines, and the three No Label beers are fresh as can be. Other than NL, they carry a few Saint Arnold, and some Southern Star. The Pro Am was on when I visited. A decent bottle selection of Texas crafts, Chimay, Sierra Nevada, and Sam Smith. Overall nothing crazy, but kudos for the local Texas craft selection.

A really enjoyable spot, and a place that really supports the local seen. I will be here more often.

Primarily an older crowd sipping bottle beer the likes of Corona and Bud Light. There are some good local beers on tap however the selection isn't large and they tend to carry some of the weaker local craft brews like No Label. It's also located in the upscale neighborhood of Cinco Ranch in the back of a "fancy" strip center. If your looking to try a local beer this may do in a pinch but otherwise you will have better luck at Flying Saucer in Sugarland.
