    Is there a decent restaurant/bar at IAH to grab some good local craft beer during a layover?

    No. The Fox Sports Sky Box had a St. Arnold tap, but that's about it.

    IAH is a wasteland for good craft beer. Fox Sports, as mentioned, might be the best option. They have a few bottles of Texas craft as well as occasionally having Saint Arnolds on tap, but other than that you're pretty much out of luck.

    For the record, 3rd Bar Oyster & Eating House is now open at the end of Terminal B, and they have a decent (for an airport at least) selection of mostly TX craft taps and bottles.

    There is a relatively new bar in Terminal C called "the local @ IAC". They have 9 taps with some local Texas crafts brews. Worth checking out if you have the time. Also, 3rd Bar Oyster & Eating House has a decent selection Iike the user before me mentioned.

    The Local in C has a good local selection (5 or 6 mostly in can it bottle).
    Rye Bar in C has a good local selection (similar to The Local).
    Pappadeaux upstairs near E5 had Karbach's Sympathy for the Lager on tap. Otherwise it's a decent selection of craft beer (SA Cold Snap, Lagunitas IPA also on tap. Left Hand Stout and Curious Traveler Shandy in bottle).
