The holidays are great in Houston, and not just because there are lots of great things to do all over the city. Houston is a city where people are from, and that means that when people come back home, they get to revisit the places they used to hang out, meet up with old friends, and see how the city has changed since they last visited.
We’re new to the Houston, but we hope to be the kind of place that you’ll make memories at whether you live here or are just visiting. Here are our holiday hours:
Thanksgiving: Open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. (Come get a drink after turkey!)
Christmas Eve: Open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Christmas Day: Closed to give our employees time off to enjoy the holiday!
New Year’s Eve: Open all day, but we’ll be hosting a ticketed event! (Tickets available soon)
New Year’s Day: Open all day
The Karbach Beer Dinner menu is here!
We’re pretty proud of this menu. We’ve managed to create a specialty cocktail and six dishes created specifically to pair with these amazing beers–all at an incredibly affordable price. (We really didn’t want to make the experience prohibitively expensive.) We’re excited to be a part of Houston Beer Week, and to get out the word about all the great brewers in Houston and beyond!
New Sour Sunday menu! We’ve got some amazing beers for Sour Sunday this week. Based on what I’ve had so far, the menu will probably be pretty consistent for the next few weeks . . . or until we get bored with it and make something you’ll love even more.
So far my favorites are as follows:
- The Real Ale Mysterium Verum series have all been amazing so far, and the WT3f?! is no exception. The “Brett Yeast” is noticeable, but not too funky for someone with a developing interest in sour beers.
- Lindeman’s Cuvee Reserve Geuze: This may be the only geuze beer available in Houston. (Anyone know of any others?) I’m a fan of the tart, yeasty flavor, and apparently the folks on BeerAdvocate are too.
- Florodora Imperial: A drink named so for the sexy chorus girls in the musical Florodora (as documented by David Wondrich in Imbibe!), this drink is refreshing, lightly tart, and very drinkable.
- Roosevelt Sour: We garnish this drink with fresh-grated nutmeg–and somehow it works perfectly with the Laird’s Bonded. Very nice.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We’re now accepting bookings for holiday parties!
One of my favorite things to do is host holiday parties. Whether it’s for your work, family, non-profit, school, or anything else–we can accommodate groups of 2 to 100. Talk to us about your budget and we can work something out.
