Good Eats Houston Recommends…

Drinks

Fancy Lawnmower

German-Style Kölsch, Saint Arnold Brewing Company

Crisp and refreshing, yet has a sweet malty body that is balanced by a complex, citrus hop character

 

Art Car IPA

American IPA, Saint Arnold Brewing Company

Big bitter blood orange that morphs into mangos and sweet tropical fruits. There is a lightly sweet malt body that allows the hops to shine while maintaining a nice complexity to the flavors

 

Summer Pils

German Pilsener, Saint Arnold Brewing Company

Delicate, sweet malt taste complemented by an abundant hop aroma and flavor

 

Raspberry AF

Fruited Berliner Weisse, Saint Arnold Brewing Company

Light bodied but surprisingly flavorful sour wheat beer brewed with lots and lots of real raspberry

 

Brunch

Assorted Breakfast Tacos

Smoked Bacon & Egg, Ranchero Beans & Eggs, and Smoked Brisket & Eggs, topped with pico de gallo

 

Grits and Pulled Pork
