Best Brewery: Saint Arnold Brewing Company

With all the younger, shinier breweries popping up these days, Houston’s 24-year-old o.g. brewer got a face-lift last year, adding a bright and shiny beer garden and restaurant to its resume. Located directly next to the brewery and rocking choice views of the downtown skyline, Saint Arnold has officially solidified its status as one of Houston's most iconic destinations. Stop by the old beer hall for tours and tap pulls of the finest craft suds one can find; then pop over to the garden and restaurant, where you’ll find a chapel-like interior covered in art from local creatives, a semi-covered outdoor area complete with yard games and seating, and inspired pub fare to pair with your suds. Now sit back and settle in with a bright, hoppy 5 O'Clock Pils and Amber Ale brat.
