Default Must have beers in huston texas area

I will be in Huston for ten days just wondering if there are any must have beers or local establishments to visit.

I never visit Houston (long story why!) but I would definitely hit up St. Arnold's. Love their beer!

Also, the Flying Saucer is a must-do.

I agree, St. Arnold's is great! Karbach is another solid local brewery. You should see if their tours are ongoing during the holidays - awesome beer with cool souvenir glassware.

Also, a beer bar called "Hay Merchant" that I highly recommend.

I third St. Arnold's. I just went there two days ago and it was awesome. The only thing is that they don't give you enough tokens to try all their beer Buffalo Bayou Brewing is also another good brewery to check out. Definitely have the Gingerbread Stout. Both brewery's give you a souvenir glass and in the case of Buffalo Bayou it's a full size tulip glass.

Skip St. Arnolds. Most of their beers are quite mainstream, and you wont get any of the good stuff on the tour. For breweries, hit Karbach, No Label, or Southern Star (though thats a tich of a drive, tours only on saturday.) For beer bars, The Flying Saucer is fine, but it is a chain so it's not particularly 'Houstony'. Instead, go to the Hay Merchant or better yet, the best bar in town, The Petrol Station, though the last is a bit off the beaten path its totally worth it.

I beg to differ. I was there this past Saturday and they had Endeavor, Santo and Icon on tap for the tour. I don't know if that qualifies as 'the good stuff' for you, but I found it to be well worth the $7.
