Houston Trip, Part 1

I'm about two months behind on this trip but better late than never!

We spent a few days in Houston, Texas in mid-July to visit family. My son is really into trying different root beers so when I heard that a local brewery made it and gave tours, I knew we had to go.

I have never been to a local brewery and had no idea what to expect. Saint Arnold Brewing Company is the oldest craft brewery in Texas and people obviously love it because it was PACKED. Like, people bring their own chairs because they know it's going to be so busy. There are rows of tables and benches (think high school cafeteria) for people to sit on but unless you get there when it opens (or brought that lawn chair), you will be standing.
It is $10 to get in (free for kids!). For ten bucks, you get 4 or 5 tokens to try the different beers (we liked the Lawnmower best),a cute glass to take home and a short tour of the brewery. Kids can drink all the root beer and water they want too!

After the brewery, we headed over to the Art Car Museum.
If you're from Houston, you have probably heard of the Art Car parade that happens every year downtown. This small museum houses 3-4 art cars that have been loaned out. They rotate the car every few months. The museum also serves as an art gallery for local talent.
Admission: free

The one above was definitely my favorite. I am curious though to know how tall the person is that owns and drives that. It is so little!
More on my Houston trip tomorrow :)
Have a great week!
