Twenty years ago, Saint Arnold Brewing Co. Founder and Owner Brock Wagner dreamed of a destination where Houstonians from all communities could gather. Today, that dream is finally realized as the doors of the Saint Arnold Beer Garden and Restaurant open for lunch and dinner service to the public.
Located next to the Saint Arnold Brewery on Lyons Avenue, the Beer Garden and Restaurant is a blend of award-winning craft beer, made-from-scratch menu items, forward-thinking architecture and design, and vivid works of art from Houston artists. The goal was to combine all these elements to make the facility a place that all Houstonians would love to gather and bring their visitors to from around the world.
“For 24 years our mission has been to build community through our passion for craft beer,” said Wagner. “Opening this Beer Garden & Restaurant is the culmination of a dream for me.”
With the opening of the new facility, guests will be able to enjoy refreshing local beer, delicious food, the company of their furry companions, bocce, and impressive views of downtown Houston seven days a week. Saint Arnold will continue to offer their famous tours of their brewing facility next door.
Executive Chef Ryan Savoie, who joined Saint Arnold in 2013, is bringing his team to a newer, much larger kitchen facility to serve favorites from the Beer Hall and a variety of new dishes that will become classics. Breads for sandwiches, pizza crusts, sausages, sauces, pasta, and more are all made in-house by the talented culinary team.
With the assistance of Natalye Appel + Associates, OJB Landscape Architecture and local artists GONZO247 (a former Saint Arnold employee), Carlos Hernandez, Nick Papas, Robynn Sanders, Matthew Schott, and Jeff Szymanski, visitors will have plenty of visuals inside and outside to marvel at with each visit.
