Saint Arnold E-Mail Newsletter

Saint Arnold Army Newsletter

Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:


How would you know summer is ending late August in Houston?

  1. Flashing school zone lights.
  2. Highs are only in the low 90’s.
  3. Oktoberfest is on the shelf.

The arrival of fall means lots and lots of fun stuff going on, from tailgating to Oktoberfest, from pub crawls to parties. Here’s the fun:


Labor Day at the Brewery


We will be open for regular Monday lunch and tour on Labor Day. Here’s Monday’s menu:


Nachos with Queso and Pickled Jalapenos

Loaded Chili Cheese Dog with Potato Chips and Watermelon


Chef paired this with Fancy Lawnmower Beer, but you can make your own pairing as beer is included in the price of lunch. To see the menu for the rest of the week, click here.

Food on Weekday Tours Too


We are expanding our food offerings to our weekday tours beginning with our Monday Labor Day tour. So now you can purchase delicious offerings from our kitchen during our tours six days a week. Weekday offerings are slightly different from Saturday offerings. See our Tours page for the menu.

Brewing Up a Cure at Saint Arnold

Wednesday, September 4 – 6:00 – 8:00 PM  


On Wednesday, September 4, we’re teaming up with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America for a fun evening at the brewery. Join us for food, beer and live music from 80 Proof – an 80s cover band. Heck, you can even wear that 80s attire you’ve been dying to bring back.


The best part if all this fun is that it will benefit CCFA, whose mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Admission is $25, which includes food, beer and a special commemorative pint glass.

Texans Tailgating to Start with the Regular Season


We will be tailgating in the Platinum lot before all of the Texans games again this season. To come by and enjoy this private party, you must be on our exclusive guest list. To get past the velvet rope, make sure to email between Monday and Wednesday each game week. We do have a limit to how many beautiful people we can accommodate, so the earlier each week you email the better.

First Ever Pub Night at Saint Arnold
Friday, September 13 – 5:00 – 10:00 PM

Things are going to get weird at Saint Arnold on Friday the 13th. For the first time ever, we will open our air conditioned tour hall strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase. There won’t be an entry fee that night so you will just be able to select beers by the individual glass or bottle.


We will have different Divine Reserve and Bishop’s Barrel vintages available by the bottle, Bishop’s Barrel 2 with brett on tap, several beers on cask and several tasty options from the kitchen if you are hungry (we’ll post the menu for the night as we get closer). This night will be 21 and over, please.

A Very Saint Arnold Wedding at the Great American Beer Festival 


If you want to make your GABF experience truly memorable, we’ve got you covered – we’re giving you the opportunity to get married by Saint Arnold himself! We’ll even have our own wedding “chapel” right there at our booth inside our booth at the convention center. Time permitting, we’re also happy to perform civil ceremonies or vow renewals.


If this appeals to you and your loved one, see all the details on our website and please email Lennie Ambrose at for more information and questions.
