A new beer bar that has opened up on nearly the same block as Petrol Station. It seems they are trying to copy Petrol and Cottonwood here. The L shaped bar is along the right wall, with an open dinning area. The hole vibe is kind of divey and dirty. Plenty of TV's scattered about. There are volleyball courts outside. Which is unique.

Service is quick enough, though not particularly knowledgeable on the selection. They did not seem to know what kegs were available or what was empty. Food is pub grub, and pretty generic at that. A large menu of apps, salads, sandwiches, and burgers. I went with the buffalo burger, which was the only thing even remotely different than the number of places in the area already mentioned. About a 6oz patty that was over cooked, and a little flavorless. Fries seemed frozen, and over seasoned with generic garlic powder. Not really bad...just nothing particularly good.

They try hard to have a good beer selection. I counted 35 taps. Plenty of Houston locals. I think 4 taps each of Saint Arnold and Karbach. Real Ale, No Label, and Southern Star round out the rest of the Texas breweries. Some Stone, Alaskan, Brooklyn, and Six Point as well. Though plenty of macros on tap. Along with a Cottonwood like cocktail selection.

Overall, a chill dive bar with a decent selection of beers. I was not very impressed with the food unfortunately. Petrol has their ups and downs on food quality, but it is always interesting, Cottonwood is excellent, and Shepherd Park does excellent pub grub as well. I wanted to give this spot a try, but seems well behind the curve in this fun neighborhood.
