Rockin’ Rollin’ Prints at Saint Arnold on Sunday, April 28


One of the more interesting annual events we do is coming up on Sunday, April 28: the Rockin’ Rollin’ Prints event, aka the Steamroller Print Making Event. Over 60 artists from all over Texas have carved 3′ x 5′ woodblocks that will be inked up and then, in our parking lot, a steamroller will roll over the blocks to make the prints. The prints will then be displayed in our beer hall for viewing and for sale. We have one in our office from last year’s event.


Rockin’ Rollin’ Prints 2013 will also feature a four-color printing by special guest artist Sean Starwars. Mississippi’s Starwars has been making woodcuts for over 20 years and is one of the infamous Outlaw Printmakers.


The purpose of Rockin’ Rollin’ Prints 2013 is to educate the general public about printmaking. The event will help kick-off PrintHouston 2013, a celebration of original prints, the artists who create them, and the people who collect them. Exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and special events at art galleries, non-profit organizations, print shops, and museums will happen throughout Houston during May, June and July.

A Little Bit of Saint Arnold at Minute Maid


Now when you go to an Astros game, you can find a wide selection of our beers at the Saint Arnold bar on the backside of Union Station, right behind the Crawford Boxes. This is the perfect place to meet up before a game or grab an Elissa IPA, Lawnmower, Santo or one of several other of our beers during a game. All of this is in addition to the other places around the park where you find our beers.


We plan on having a few special events in the area during the season so stay tuned. In the meantime, Go Astros!


Saint Arnold Spam Off at the Brewery on Wednesday, May 1

Spam (the meat, not the email) has sold over 7 billion cans since its launch in 1937. To celebrate the return of Spamalot to the stage, we have partnered with Theater Under The Stars to add to that number. On Wednesday, May 1, bring out your appetite for the first ever Saint Arnold Spam Off.

Come sample what area chefs can do with our favorite meat-in-a-can. We will have light bites featuring Spam, entertainment provided by TUTS and plenty of frosty refreshments. You’ll also have the chance to win tickets to the show itself, so brush up on your general Spam knowledge. Here’s a sampling of who will be transforming Spam into gourmet treats:
