Saint Arnold's Brewery: Don't Worry be Hoppy

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- "Don't drink the water, drink beer," said Saint Arnold in the 6th century.

Saint Arnold's Brewery, named in his honor, is the oldest craft brewery in Houston.

The legend says St. Arnold's relics allowed an unending flow of beer from glasses in Germany, and he has certainly blessed his namesake brewery in Houston.

On the walls are depictions of the saint and in the taps are his preferred beverage, beer.

They brew several different beers; some are year round, some are seasonal and a few are single batch brews. There's definitely a reason that Saint Arnold has won more Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup medals than any brewery in the South.

In the last few years, food has joined the menu. Chef Ryan leads the food service effort, many of which match perfectly with a Saint Arnold brew.

No huddling at a table with your group or sitting at the bar, the community seating creates a friendly atmosphere.

"From man's sweat and God's love, beer came into the world" -Saint Arnold
