Our Original Brown Ale is Now Ale Wagger

At Saint Arnold, we are passionate about animal rescue. A number of us here are proud to have rescue animals as family members.

We're also passionate about our Brown Ale. We've been brewing it since 1995 when we released it to celebrate our one year anniversary.

When we decided recently to give Brown Ale a makeover, we wanted to combine these two passions. Thus, you'll now enjoy our original Brown Ale as Ale Wagger Brown.

We'll be donating a portion of the sales of Ale Wagger to support local rescue organizations to improve the lives of animals in our communities. Here in Houston, those funds will go to the city's BARC to help promote their spay, neuter and adoption efforts.

During our Saturday tour on October 4, representatives from BARC will be here hosting a dog adoption event in our front parking lot. Enjoy an Ale Wagger at the brewery on that day, and you may just find a new furry friend.

Amber Ale Dryhopped with Mosaic is Now Available

To celebrate 20 years of brewing our Amber Ale, we've enjoyed two different special batches dryhopped with Liberty and Cascade. Now available is the third, final and most intense release of the series - Amber Ale Dryhopped with Mosaic.

Mosaic is a relatively new hop variety that gives an intense tropical, passion fruit aroma when used for dry hopping. To make sure that the Mosaic was able to shine, we dry hopped the beer once during fermentation and again prior to bottling. The addition of all that Mosaic transforms Amber Ale from a well balanced beer to one that is incredibly hop forward.

You can find this special batch in 22 oz bomber bottles and on cask at select places around town.

Oktoberfest 2014 at Saint Arnold
Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11
6:00 - 9:00 PM

Put on your best dirndl, lederhosen or other Tyrolean duds and come out to our annual Oktoberfest party in our tour hall. You could even be crowned King or Queen of Oktoberfest - we'll have a contest to see who comes outfitted the best.

Chef Ryan will be preparing a special German dinner, and we'll have our regular lineup of beers on tap. You'll also be able to enjoy a variety of cask conditioned beers. On both evenings, we'll be tapping casks of Oktoberfest (of course), 20th Anniversary Ale and Divine Reserve No. 14. You'll enjoy these beers from the commemorative Oktoberfest mug you'll receive. To entertain you, we'll have live music from Chris Ryback - The Accordion Cowboy on Friday and The Dujka Brothers on Saturday.

Tickets are $45 each and include admission, dinner, a pretzel, beer and a commemorative mug. Get your tickets for Friday night here or Saturday night here. Space is very limited.

King and Queen of Oktoberfest Contest: We will choose one best dressed man and one best dressed woman each evening using our own highly subjective criteria. The winners will receive $100 each and the envy of all of their Tyrolean serfs.

The Brew Mile at Houston Sports Park

We love running, we love beer. We love beer and running events. So it just made sense for us to get involved with the good folks from The Brew Mile. This will be a super fun event where you can expect a party, live music, food trucks, costumes and great Saint Arnold beer.

This Saturday, September 27 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Spec's Midtown, you can register in person for The Brew Mile at a discounted rate. You'll even get an automatic pass to the VIP area at the event.
Get all the information on The Brew Mile on their website.

Tailgating at the Stadium

Like we always do, we will be tailgating prior to each home game of our local professional football team. You know the one. Their colors are War Red, Freedom White and Rich Stainless Blue. Our tailgate is located in the Platinum lot - you can look for our red van and trailer and our new Saint Arnold flag flying high.

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 kathy@saintarnold.com 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.

Pub Nights at Saint Arnold

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, October 3
Friday, November 7

Saint Arnold Happenings in North Texas

Oktoberfest Nights Around the Metroplex

The weather still says summer, but everyone knows it's fall when Oktoberfest seasonals take over the beer aisle. We've been brewing our Oktoberfest since 1997. It's a full bodied, malty, slightly sweet beer celebrating the Autumn harvest. It's rich, with a round malt flavor and an above average alcohol content perfect for a cool fall evening (remember those?). Here's where you can enjoy some:

Carnivores Ball at Brodie Homestead
Thursday, October 23 at 5:30 PM

It's not until October, but tickets will go fast for this event, so we want to give you a heads up. This is an event for the discerning meat enthusiast, but this year it's more than meat and beer. The gang at Industry Print Shop and KLCTVE are teaming up to provide live t-shirt screen printing. You can get Texas or BBQ themed designs or a special souvenir Carnivores Ball design.

Just like last year, a portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank Of Texas, so that while we enjoy our meal, others who are less fortunate may have the chance to eat too.

Get all the info and tickets here.
