Houston's first full-scale craft beer bar is still its most respected, if a little worn around the edges from years of cask-tappings and vertical tastings. And though it's greatly expanded from its initial days as a beer bar tucked into a converted neighborhood gas station — with a big rear patio and equally big parking lot across the street — Petrol is still as friendly and cozy as ever. Grab a beer from the constantly changing selection of eccentrics and solid favorites, and the kitchen is back open after renovations.
