Divine Reserve No. 14 Available Starting Monday, April 28

Strong Belgian Golden Ales can be quite tasty, but we wanted to make one with a little more complexity and depth and wanted to do so without digging into the spice cabinet to achieve this. Ultimately, the key to the recipe is the addition of rye and finding the right yeast. Oh, and 10% ABV. Here are brewer Casey Motes' thoughts on this recipe:

"The goal of this beer was to make a Belgian/American hybrid using West Coast American hops and rye to emulate the fruit and spices often found in Belgian beers.

The beer pours a bright golden color. The nose is a mixture of phenolics from the Belgian wit yeast and light citrus from the American hops with a touch of graininess. Rye adds sweetness and complexity to the pilsner and aromatic malts. The spice of the rye is somewhat subdued at lower temperatures but becomes more apparent as the beer warms. Cascade and centennial hops were used for both flavor and aroma, adding floral and citrus notes to play off the strengths of the yeast.

Belgian candi sugar was added during fermentation to bump up the alcohol while allowing the beer to avoid finishing too sweet. The dry finish hides the 10% alcohol nicely and makes you want to take another sip."

This release is ready to enjoy today. How will it age? Ask us in five years.

Lunch Expands to Full Menu

Please note: We will be closed for lunch service on Thursday, April 24 for a private event. The public tour will run normally.

When we launched our new kitchen last March and began serving lunch and offering food on our public tours, we were excited to present new ways for people to experience our brewery and the community of Saint Arnold. We have now expanded our lunch service to a full menu as well as offering all of our food items during the weekday public tours.

Executive Chef Ryan Savoie and his great staff have created a menu which allows you to pick from dishes that have become favorites over the past year. There are salads, a meat and Texas cheese plate, sandwiches (Prime Rib French Dip, anyone?), a variety of entrees, as well as some veggie options and small items.

You can see the full new menu on our Lunch page.

From 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Monday through Friday, you can come in our tour hall, order the items you choose from the menu, purchase a beer a la carte and enjoy your lunch. We're continuing to offer the Daily Lunch Special from 11:00 to 2:00 which includes two courses and beer. You can check our website daily for the current special or ask your bartender when you arrive.

Our weekday public tours remain the same - if you come in after 2:00, you'll pay $8 and receive a souvenir taster glass and four tokens for beer. Now though, you can order from the full menu during tour hours.

Our Saturday public tours also remain the same, and we're continuing to offer a limited food menu for you to snack on.

We hope to see you soon!

Rockin' Rollin' Prints at the Brewery
Sunday, April 27 - 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

One of our most interesting events every year is PrintHouston's Rockin' Rollin' Prints, where over 75 artists' woodblocks will be printed under the drum of a two-ton steamroller in our parking lot. In our opinion, this is the best possible use of a two-ton steamroller. The theme of this year's art is Balance. After the prints are pressed, they'll be hung in the tour hall for viewing.

Burning Bones Press will also be on hand with their "Came From the Bayou III" printmaking demos and more. PrintHouston and Burning Bones will both have commemorative glasses for sale at a price of $10, which will include a pint of beer. Alternatively, you'll have the option to purchase beer. This year, the event will be free and open to the public all day - no tickets are necessary for entry.

Pub Nights This Friday with Burning Bones Press

Pub Night returns to the tour hall this Friday, and we've got something cool for you. We'll be rolling out our brand new t-shirt press, and you'll be able to purchase a shirt hand pressed by the guys of Burning Bones Press. They'll be pressing custom Santo t-shirts by inking up a hand carved woodblock and pressing the design on the shirt. It's a really cool process. Think of it like the steamroller event - just a bit smaller and without the steamroller.

As always, we'll be pulling out some special beers. Bishop's Barrel No. 5 (our Bourbon Barrel Wee Heavy Scotch Ale), Divine Reserve No. 11 (the beer that became Endeavour) and Pumpkinator 2013 will all be available. We'll also be tapping a special cask of Icon Blue - Brown Porter with toasted coconut and vanilla. It's delicious. Some food will be available as well, so you'll be able to enjoy our Jerk Chicken Sandwich, a Bishop's Burger, Pulled Pork Nachos or a few other items.Here's the scoop.

On Pub Nights, we open our tour hall from 5:00 - 10:00 PM 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. You've given us great feedback on them so far, so we'll be keeping them up on a monthly basis. Pub Nights are strictly 21 and up.

Each Pub Night, we'll have select Divine Reserves and Bishop's Barrels available, as well as the always awesome food from our kitchen. Check this page and our email newsletter to see the menu as each night approaches.

Upcoming Pub Nights:
Friday, April 18
Friday, May 9
Friday, June 13
Friday, July 18
Friday, August 15
Friday, September 5
Friday, October 3
Friday, November 7
