PLATYPUS BREWING

Address: 1902 Washington Ave e, Houston, TX 77007
Hours: Open today · 12PM–12AM

Platypus Brewery is nestled on the corner of Silver St. and Washington Ave. Specializing in craft beer & Australian-inspired comfort food from Chef Chris Andrus.

BEER MARKET CO.

Address: 920 Studemont St #900, Houston, TX 77007
Hours today · 11AM–2AM

You can’t celebrate National Beer Day with out a nod to Beer Market Co. Mainly because of their vast assortment of over 365 bomb ass beers. Their pub fare isn’t bad either. Given the wide array of beer options, I suggest you try something different each round. Green Flash has a Double Stout that I am in love with. Pro-Tip: Pair your favorite beer with BMC’s Brew Pretzels + Real Ale “HANS PILS” Cheese Dip. A creamy velvet cheese dip with “Hans Pils” craft beer & roasted garlic, served alongside warm pretzels.

BUFFALO BAYOU BREWING

Address: 5301 Nolda St, Houston, TX 77007
Hours: Open today · 5–9PM

Looking to enjoy a little sunshine with your beer? Hop on over to Buffalo Bayou Brewing! Due to the fact that I haven’t been this year, I am not sure which food truck is on property. Though, I believe it’s GastroPunk. Pro-Tip: B3 offers brewery tours on the weekend and happy hour on Friday’s from 5 to 9 pm.

CALHOUN’S ROOFTOP BAR & GRILL 

Address: 4701 Calhoun Rd Suite 200, Houston, Texas
Monday – Saturday – 11:00 am – 2:00 am
Sunday 12:00 pm – 12:00 am

Though located on the University of Houston Main campus, it’s still a great place to celebrate. It’s open to the public and has one of the best views of the city from its rooftop. As a UH Alum, of course their exclusive, Red IPA – “Brew of H” comes highly recommended. Pro-tip: Five words Brew of H, Go Coogs!

8TH WONDER BREWING 

Address: 2202 Dallas St, Houston, TX 77003
Hours: Open today · 11AM–10PM

8th Wonder Brewery is easily one of my favorite places in EaDo. Anyplace that goes H.A.M for Houston is where you can find me! Everything from the theme of this joint to the names of each beer screams H-Town. They have a rocking new patio space and a fun lineup of events to check out. Pro-tip: You can never go wrong with “Dome Faux’m” their throwback cream ale. It’s perfect for warm weather and goes down like agua.

WORLD OF BEER – KATY

Address: LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, 2643 Commercial Center Blvd b390, Katy, TX 77494
Hours today · 11AM–2AM

This Katy gem has been on a few of my lists. A great place to celebrate National Beer Day if you live in Katy (Cinco Ranch area). First of all, they’re menu offers paring suggestions. As a result, feel free to switch it into auto-pilot and go with the house suggestions. They’re usually spot on! Pro-tip: Pairing the Belgain Waffle Smore’s with Left Hand Brewing’s Milk Stout, will be the best decisions you’ve ever made.

Cheers to the weekend, hope to see you out and about. Happy National Beer Day!!
