Great place that always has a solid beer selection.

The bar service is absolutely awful though. Very unattentive staff. Takes forever to get their attention. It almost seems like they get pre-occupied woth busy work that they forget customers are sitting in front of them (i.e. cutting limes, filling the ice cooler, etc.)

Big parking lot. Big place with lots of room, indoors and out. Good selection of craft beers with locals well-represented. Food is good, service was OK. Good music on the patio. Vibe seemed a little hipster-ish but my view is probably distorted by my fairly advanced age (read "older than dirt"). Can't be too bad if they have fresh Yellow Rose on tap. Nice day!

best outdoor drinking space in houston. usually have a great selection of beers (but serve booze too). probably 30 taps or so. not a sportsbar at all, but they have several large mounted tvs if youre looking for a game. also have live music a couple of times a week. hard to beat hanging out here when the weather isnt too hot. kid and dog friendly.
