Our First Ever Beaumont Pub Crawl
Saturday, December 5 - 2:00 - 6:00 PM
Get ready, Beaumont. Our World Famous Pub Crawl is heading your way. That's right. The Saint Arnold Pub Crawl is coming - for the first time ever - to the seat of Jefferson County... Beaumont, here we come.
As usual, we're utilizing our open house method. This means you'll visit the first five stops in any order, and you'll get your ticket at whichever stop you decide to visit first. We will only be handing out the tickets between 2:00 and 3:00. Thus, you need to begin crawling by 3:00.
At 6:00 PM, everybody will gather at the final stop, and that's where we will award the prizes. The prize for making all five stops will be a beautiful Saint Arnold pint glass. As always, designated drivers are both eligible for the award and encouraged to attend! Here's where you'll find us:
- The West Bar & Grill
- Fast Eddie's Billiards
- The Grill
- MacKenzie's Pub
- Final Stop: Bar Local
Is this your first Pub Crawl? Fear not - it's easy. And fun! Here are a few tips for maximum enjoyment.
Precoating: Try to eat something before commencing the crawl.
Pacing: Too many Christmas Ales at the first stop is a critical strategic mistake. This is known as "Sprinting Too Early" which is not advisable in this, a distance event. Can have negative repercussions later.
Manners: Be patient with bar staff. Remember, 700 or so people will be descending upon them. They will be working as fast as they can. Also, it is considered very good manners to tip well everywhere you go. This creates good "beerma".
Cash: Bring cash! This pleases the bar staff and the people standing behind you. Cash is fast. Credit cards are slow. They cannot run tabs for 700 people.
Buddy System: Make sure that you are always in contact with a couple of people you know. One of you is bound to notice that the pack is starting to move on to the next stop. This prevents the disoriented feeling of looking around an empty bar and realizing that the only three people still in there are guzzling some inferior malted beverage and may be related to the missing link.
Make New Friends: As everyone on this crawl will be intelligent and good looking, this is an excellent place to meet new people. Also, you will note that some people become better looking as the crawl wears on. If this occurs, be sure to consult your Buddy System partner.
Designated Driver: Yes, we encourage this strongly. You never know when you might decide to run for president. And even the designated drivers on the crawl qualify for the prize. While pregnant wives are perfect for this role, it is known to be poor judgment for a husband to claim that this is the best part of her being pregnant. See "Mood Swings."
Enjoy Saint Arnold Beers: It is in poor taste to be seen quaffing anything else. Ever. See "Curse of Saint Arnold."
Ride Safe with Uber + Saint Arnold
We always look forward to the holidays and all of the special events and parties that accompany the season. This is why we are excited to announce that we are partnering with Uber on a safe rides initiative. We are grateful for all of the support our customers give us throughout the year and thought this was a great way to show our appreciation.
Saint Arnold is partnering with Uber to promote responsible choices and safe rides this holiday season. Use promo code SAINTARNOLD to sign up for Uber and your first ride will be free (up to $20 off).
Sign up today.
For every first ride taken with this code, Uber will donate $1 to Neighborhood Centers, a local organization that supports community engagement and economic development in low-income communities throughout the Houston area. Also, whenever you take an Uber ride from Saint Arnold’s brewery for the next two months, we’ll donate another $1 to Neighborhood Centers and you’ll be automatically entered to win free Uber rides.

Sailing Santa 2015 is Now Available
It's that time of year again when we blend our Christmas Ale with Elissa IPA and spices to create Sailing Santa, a beer originally developed by you, our customers. Years ago, people on tours began asking us to blend the two beers. We're not certain who first called this concoction Sailing Santa, but we suspect several of you claim to be the originator. We have now added spices to the beer, changing the mix slightly from year to year.
For the 2015 version, we were able to get our hands on a brand new hop, called Snap, which is actually a blend of hops, spices and botanicals. What exactly is in there? We can't say. How do you blend hops with spices and botanicals? We can't say. We can tell you that the new hop, added at the end of fermentation, adds a ginger snap aroma and a complexity that makes Sailing Santa taste like the holidays.
Sailing Santa is now available in 22 oz bottles, and there will also be some cask tappings around town.

This holiday season, we'll be preselling a few dates that we expect to be very busy. On these days, we'll be offering our Daily Lunch Special only, and you can make reservations in advance.
