Boiler Room Bonanza at Saint Arnold
Tuesday, September 8 - 6:00 - 9:00 PM
In the beginning, we added some critters into the brewkettle to sour the wort and created Boiler Room Berliner Weisse. It was light and tasty. And we saw that it was good. Then we asked ourselves "what if we took Boiler Room and added some brettanomyces?" And how about if we put some into chardonnay barrels? And what if we added fruit to the barrels? And what if Chef Ryan concocted special syrups? And what if you get to enjoy all of this in a special Boiler Room Berliner Weisse glass to keep? Oh, it was very good!
Come to the brewery on Tuesday, September 8 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM and find out what all of these are at a special evening we are calling Boiler Room Bonanza! There is a Boiler Room for everybody, both for people who love beer and even those peculiar friends we all have who say "I don't like beer." Here is a list of the Boiler Rooms for the evening:
- Boiler Room Berliner Weisse (the regular version, light and tart)
- Grain Room: Boiler Room with brettanomyces aged 6 months
- Chardonnay Barrel Aged Boiler Room with Raspberries: aged 3 months
- Chardonnay Barrel Aged Boiler Room with Blackberries: aged 3 months
Chef Ryan's Syrups you can add to regular Boiler Room:
- Kaffir Lime Blackberry
- Meyer Lemon and Lime
- Ancho Chile Apricot
You are also welcome to enjoy our other regular beers on tap.
You get all of the above (beers and Boiler Room Glass) plus a hot Slow Dough pretzel for $25 plus tax. Not included but also available will be a limited food menu from our kitchen if you are still hungry!

Spend Labor Day Weekend with Us
It's Labor Day. It's our yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country. That, and a perfect time to enjoy great food and cold beer. We'll have a full weekend at the brewery.
On Thursday, September 3, we'll be hosting a special Pub Night in our beer hall featuring 20th Anniversary Ale, Divine Reserve No. 14 and food from our kitchen. On Pub Nights, there is no admission charge - we are open as a bar from 5:00 - 10:00 PM.
On Friday, September 4, we'll be serving a Lunch Special of Weedwacker Fish and Chips. On Labor Day (Monday, September 7), we'll be serving a special All-American Lunch Buffet featuring brisket, chicken, bratwurst, sides and dessert.
On both days, $18.48 plus tax ($20 total) gets you lunch and beer until 2:00 PM. We are taking reservations below, and we expect these days to fill up quickly. After lunch, our normal public tour hours will resume.
Of course, on that Saturday, we'll have our classic tour and tasting. $10 gets you a souvenir glass and four tokens for beer.

Our Newest Icon Gold is Belgian-Style Wit
Our original concept for the Icon series was to brew iconic examples of traditional styles. We got away from that, but our new Icon Gold exemplifies the original concept. This is a Belgian-style Wit.
We began with the original recipe of Celis White (long story on how we have that) brewed by Pierre Celis in Austin beginning in 1992. We added a small dose of oats to add a little body, kept the proportion of spices and used the same yeast.
The result is a classic Witbier with a subtle aroma of coriander and orange peel and the distinct but delicate yeast notes.The complexity of flavors in this medium-bodied ale make it crisp, refreshing and perfect for the warm weather along the Gulf Coast.
You can find Icon Gold on tap at bars and restaurants around town and in four packs of bottles at your favorite place to get Saint Arnold beer.
Friday Happy Hours at Minute Maid Park
At every Friday evening Astros home game, we'll be hosting our Friday Happy Hour at the Ballpark. This means you'll be able to get in the game at 5:00 PM through the Union Station entrance and enjoy $5.25 Saint Arnold beers at our bar in left field until 6:30 PM.

Enjoy Houston Restaurant Weeks at Alamo Drafthouse
From now through September 7, both locations of Alamo Drafthouse will be offering a special Houston Restaurant Weeks ticket package. Each $35 package includes your movie ticket for the evening, a three course meal featuring exclusive new menu items and an additional movie ticket that can be used on a return visit. Plus, they will donate $5 from every ticket package sold to the Houston Food Bank. This donation will provide 15 meals to those in need.
They've also teamed up with us to provide beer pairing suggestions to accompany your Houston Restaurant Weeks meal. These suggestions will be found on the back of the menu you'll receive when you arrive at the theater. We tend to think beer pairs great with movie watching.
