Yelper Ryan H. added, "They have an amazing beer list and specialize in Houston/Texan beers you can't get anywhere else -- i.e. items from small breweries and brewpubs that you generally can't get from other bars or even Spec's. Cobble & Spoke is definitely filling a cool niche."

Pitch 25 Beer Park is a beer garden and sports bar. It's a soccer-themed place, which comes as no surprise given that Brian Ching, formerly a soccer player for the Houston Dynamo and a member of the U.S. national team, is the owner. There's even an indoor soccer pitch.
The bar serves up beers, wine and cocktails. There are also food options, including sandwiches, burgers, wings, salads and more.
Yelpers are still warming up to Pitch 25 Beer Park, which currently holds 3.5 stars out of 61 reviews on the site.
Susie L., who reviewed it on June 26, wrote, "The place is huge! Indoor and outdoor seating, adorable swing seats inside and outside, one-seater hammocks outside, comfy couches, large tables perfect for big groups. And by far, my favorite part was that even though it was completely packed, every single server/bartender was perfectly pleasant!"
Zoabe H. added, "Coolest sports bar in Houston. It has tons of taps, a decent menu I didn't sample, a huge indoor cornhole area for high level cornhole athletes like myself and a friendly staff."
Pitch 25 Beer Park is open from 3 p.m.-2 a.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m.-2 a.m. on weekends.

Yelper Ray A. added, "Decent service. Decent menu. Nice place. But, after you've had a few drinks and are really enjoying an evening chatting with friends, the bill arrives and it's wrong. What a huge buzzkill, having to argue over prices."
