Dear Saint Arnold’s Army:


Special Beer Dinner in the Saint Arnold iPub
Wednesday, February 19 at 6:30 PM

One afternoon last week at the brewery:


Brock, Chef, Josh and Lennie sat around a table with dishes of food and glasses of every brew we make, including a few that now only reside in Papa Bear’s Cave hidden away in our building. A bite of the dish, a sip of one beer. Now a bite of the dish, a sip of another beer.


We call this work. This is also how we put together the menu and pairings for our second ever Beer Dinner at Saint Arnold. The first was done in 2002. This will be the first one featuring the food from our own Chef Ryan Savoie. It will be held in the Investors Pub tucked back behind the Beer Hall. Each dish has been carefully paired with a beer. One dish paired well with two very different beers so we’ll let you decide which you prefer. Or maybe you’ll love them both.


We have a very limited number of seats. Price is $75 which includes tax, tip and witty repartee.

Lunch at the Brewery Every Weekday


Mardi Gras Jamboree & Gumbo Showdown
at Market Square Park
Saturday, March 1 – 4:00 – 8:30 PM

With our Annual One Pot Showdown a couple of weeks ago, we’re starting to get hungry again. So we decided to team up with the Houston Downtown District and throw a Mardi Gras Jamboree & Gumbo Showdown in historic Market Square Park. On Saturday, March 1, you can come out for free gumbo tastings, free live music and free fun. Best of all, all that free stuff is totally free.

For the winners, there are some pretty awesome prizes. If you want to enter a team and show off your gumbo chops, see all the information and get the registration form here.

Special musical guests include the New Orleans Hustlers Brass Band and T Bird and the Breaks. Public tastings are from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, and judging and awards will take place immediately after. An Illuminated Art Car Drive-About will happen around 9:00 with the party moving from the park to all the bars and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Valentine’s Day Beer & Cheese Pairing at the Brewery
Friday, February 14 – 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Looking for something novel and fun to do on Valentine’s Day? We have just the event! We’ll be pairing our beers with Texas made cheeses selected and brought by the Houston Dairymaids. It’s an evening perfect for couples and those without dates. We’ll have a few of the cheesemakers on hand to discuss the cheeses, and we’ll be talking about the beers.

Tickets are $25 and are available online here.


Pub Night at Saint Arnold
Friday, February 7 – 5:00 – 10:00 PM

Pub Night is back in our tour hall this Friday evening, and if you haven’t been out here for one yet, here’s the scoop. On Pub Nights, we open strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase. There’s no entry fee for the evening, so you can just choose beers by the individual glass or bottle.
We’ll have select Divine Reserves and Bishop’s Barrels available, as well as the always awesome food from our kitchen. This time, the menu will include chili cheese fries, cheeseburgers and a spicy pulled pork sandwich with Weedwacker kimchi.

Saint Arnold Video Scavenger Hunt Pub Crawl:
Houston Light Rail Edition!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a good old fashioned Saint Arnold Scavenger Hunt Pub Crawl here in Houston, and this time you’ll get to ride the light rail to hit all the stops. All correct entries have a chance to win a home kegerator!

Here is how it works:

Watch the video below. The video will show specific objects with which you need to take a picture of yourself (i.e., have both you and the object in the same photo). All of the objects are in establishments where you can find good beer, and enjoying a Saint Arnold while on your quest may bring you enlightenment! If any of the hints seem obscure to you, remember Googling is allowed.

Once you have found all of the objects and taken the required photos, upload the photos to any of a number of photo-sharing websites (Flickr, Facebook, etc.) and send the links to Make sure your links aren’t password protected or marked as private. Also, please don’t send Lennie a bunch of attachments – we only have so much bandwidth here at the brewery. The deadline for us to receive the photos is Sunday, February 16 at 11:59 PM. Make sure you include your name, email address and phone number. Only one person per photo so if a group of you are doing it, you each need to take individual pictures of yourselves with the objects and include individual email addresses.

All timely, correct and complete entries will be sent an invitation for that person to attend a private party at the brewery, on a date to be announced shortly after the hunt ends. At that party, we will draw a name and award the winner a kegerator from! The most creative pictures taken will win a special prize too.

Deadline: Sunday, February 16 at 11:59 PM. If you have any questions, please email Lennie at He’s a pretty nice guy.
