One of a host of recent "gastropubs" to pop up around Houston, BRC is the only one that truly hits the nail on the head of this culinary trend. BRC — which, yes, stands for Big Red Cock — serves up not only a small but stunning menu of "pub" food (if a traditional pub were located in the Deep South) but has a rotating menu of craft and micro brews that often can't be found anywhere else in the city. With 28 taps and frequently tapped casks, you won't always find the same beer here twice, but you'll most definitely fall in love over and over again with the finds that Lance Fegen discovers and wags back to the bar. Grab a floppy, dog-eared copy of the leather-bound beer list and peruse the clever descriptions ("biscuity nose") if you aren't quite sure what you want. And don't be afraid to experiment: Most draft beers are only $6 or $7 and you can even get a highly affordable beer flight if you just can't settle on one.

BRC for Best Beer Selection?!? How about showing a photo of their beer tap selection then instead of a burger? And what beers exactly have they served that haven't been found anywhere else in the city at Petrol Station or Flying Saucer? Extreme disagreement.

Gotta agree with the commmenters above, this is some kind of joke. Gingerman kicks these guy's asses four ways to Sunday.

Not a chance. I liked the food on my lone visit to BRC and the beer selection was good, but not even close to best in the city. Petrol Station has the best selection for the connoisseur but clearly Flying Saucer and GingerMan beat BRC in any beer comparison. And "only $6 or $7" is expensive. Petrol is more in the $4 or $5 range.
