Saint Arnold Brewing Company located in Houston is Texas’ Oldest Craft Brewery. Our goal is to brew world class beers and deliver them to our customers as fresh as possible making them the best beers in Texas. Our customers are beer lovers – people that appreciate great full-flavored beers.

Our small crew does everything at the brewery: brew the beer filter the beer keg the beer bottle the beer sell the beer and drink the beer. For us this is a passion not a job. We believe that this comes through in the beers we make. Our beers have soul.

Saint Arnold brews fourteen different beers. Seven are made year round and seven are seasonal as well as some very limited special release beers throughout the year. They are available in bars restaurants grocery stores liquor stores and warehouse stores in Houston Austin Dallas Ft. Worth San Antonio and most recently Louisiana.

Our first keg of beer was shipped on June 9 1994. Founded by Brock Wagner and Kevin Bartol a couple of Rice University grads. We chose Houston because other than being a great town to live in this was  also the largest city in the country that did not have a microbrewery.

Brock was a longtime homebrewer and had considered opening a brewery as far back as college although that was quickly dismissed as a silly idea. Seven years after graduating Brock revisited the idea enlisted Kevin’s help and the brewery was off and running. Kevin has since left the business after a bitter battle. (Just kidding – but don’t you wish people wrote that when it was the truth?).

Please visit us if you are in Houston. We have a public open house every weekday at 3:00 PM and every Saturday starting at 11:00 AM. Our brewery is also available for private parties company functions and training seminars.  Vist our website for more information at
