Art Car IPA Coming Thursday, August 6

National IPA Day seems like the perfect time to release our newest beer, Art Car IPA, a very hoppy American IPA featuring a blend of both new and old hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. We love this beer.

The nose is a blend of apricot and tropical fruit and mango. The taste starts with a big bitter blood orange that morphs into mangos and sweet tropical fruits. There is a lightly sweet malt body that allows the hops to shine while there being a nice complexity to the flavors.

The Art Car IPA name was inspired by the fleet of hand painted Art Cars created by local artists for Saint Arnold. You've probably seen our salespeople driving them around town. The label artwork was designed by renowned Houston graffiti artist and our good friend, GONZO247, who has painted four Saint Arnold Art Cars. If you've been to the brewery, you've seen his murals on the inside and outside of our building.

You can enjoy Art Car IPA on tap around town beginning Thursday. In October, Art Car IPA will be released in cans.

Art Car Shows Around Town

To celebrate the release of Art Car IPA, our Art Cars will be hitting the town. They'll be driving around and making stops at bars pouring the beer. At these places, you'll be able to taste the new beer while checking out a few art cars. You might even score one of our brand new Art Car IPA pint glasses or a citrus scented Art Car IPA air freshener.

Here's where our Art Cars will be. These times represent when the cars themselves will be pulling up. You're welcome to arrive earlier to enjoy the beer.

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.
