About Petrol Station (Brew Pubs)

The first Houston bar to focus solely on American craft beer has finally expanded the kitchen as well as the backyard. Further improvements -- proof that no one should leave a chalkboard menu in the hands of a bunch of bearded man-children -- include re-writing the once nearly unreadable beer menu in a legible format. Is it coincidence the first female bartender in Petrol Station's history started recently? Never afraid to shy away from its nerd roots, Petrol Station had sectioned its beers into Youngling, Padawan and Jedi the last time we visited. At just under 40 taps and no bottle selection to speak of, the bar doesn't have the selection of our second and third place winners, but the selection of rarities combined with untouchable special events makes Petrol Station our Best of Houston winner for Best Beer Bar.
