The 4 Beer Bars to Visit in Houston

Where to go for a craft brew


Where to get the best craft beer in Houston: 

Mongoose Vs. Cobra

Forty draught brews on rotation, is that enough for you? The casual vibe (plus a motif of cobras and mongoose, really) make this a fun alternative to your average dive bar. Our favorite beers on the list? Mama's Little Yel Pils from Oskar Blues, the Double Brown Stout from Deep Ellem, and Ruination from Stone (for now).

Petrol Station

Another laid-back beer bar with a long list of brews, the Garden Oaks pub has everyone raving. (And not just for its recently revamped food menu.) Its international beer menu is outstanding; from Mexico to Ireland, Scotland to Germany, there's no shortage of good beers — and helpful bartenders to help you sift through the list. 

The Flying Saucer Beer Emporium

Much like its location in Nashville, the downtown Houston Saucer boasts an abundant selection of more than 200 craft beers with as many as 80 of those brews on tap. The locality factor allows each location to dedicate as many as 20 of those taps to local breweries, allowing for customers to enjoy and support brewers in their area. And of course, there are special perks for "Beer Knurds" who try more than 200 beers. 

The Ginger Man

The Ginger Man is an institution of beer bars in Houston. "This is not only because it has a fine selection of beers (a feature hardly ever found in Ireland, where Guinness suffices) but also because it is a true pub, where it is possible to indulge in conversation without having dubious entertainments or food pressed upon one," wrote Michael Jackson in Good Ale News.
