My favorite craft beer place to hit in Houston.
Went to their 4th Anniversary.. what a great job they did there.. so many great and hard to find beers. One of the best beer days I've had. 512 BB Pecan Porter... enough said there... oh yeah.. old Rasputin from 2010... Saint Arnold BB1 and Pumpkinator.. beers from Lagunitas, DFH, Stone, Real Ale and so many others...
The Rancor Burger is fantastic.. as are the fries.. add some parmesan cheese or truffle oil.
Taps rotate all the time which is awesome. They always have two or three beers I haven't had before it seems.
If you are in Houston, hit this place up.

Heard good thing about the Petrol Station, and was in Houston so gave it a shot. It's located in the middle of a neighborhood, kind of odd.
Real laid back atmosphere, wish there was something like this in Beaumont.
Beer selection was great. Had a 512 Pecan Porter and a Real Ale Sisyphus. Staff knew alot and was fun listening to them talk beer. Although I didn't eat the food looked great as well. Definitely need to order something next time.
Will be back whenever I'm in Houston. Great place

Small locale in the Garden Oaks neighborhood north of the 610 loop. Always rotating tap list which consists of 25-30 selections most of the time. Varied beers, always something good. Have had fresh Maharaja, Hopsickle, Chocolate Yeti, Double Bastard, Unibroue stuff. With (512), Real Ale, Independence, Southern Star, Saint Arnold offerings usually available. Casks from Saint Arnold and Real Ale are sometimes available. Inside could get cramped during peak hours. Front and back patio seating available. Small menu consists of soups, sandwiches, tacos on Tuesdays, and burgers. Oh the burgers! Easily some of the tastiest around. Free beer tastes and 1/2 pints available for 1/2 the price. Prices are very reasonable. They also do growler fills. What more do you want?! Parking is limited, though they have recently acquired a lot across the bar, so it isn't as bad.

My friend has been a regular at this place for a few years, and he has always tried to get me to go there with him. I finally did, and I was not disappointed at all. The atmosphere in this place was awesome, and they have a lot on tap. Not as much as Flying Saucer, but they had more than I needed, and had one of my favorite IPAs on tap. Bartenders are great, and will suggest beers to you based on your preferences. I would frequent this place if I lived closer, but I will go as often as I can.
The food is excellent as well, you wouldn't expect it walking into the place as it is like a dive bar. I would suggest the burgers to anyone.

Atmosphere: Straight Texas. Not one of the super huge halls that Houston has grown so fond of. Small, out of the way neighborhood joint with a great customer base and really homey indoor and outdoor seating. My preferred destination for a tipsy, lazy, weekend afternoon.
Quality: The beer selection is on the small side, but the Station always has stellar beers on draft and always features the best of Texas.
Service: The best you can ask for. I love a place where you can say to the bartender, "Pour me your favorite", and they just pour the beer with the conviction instead of hemming and hawing and asking, "What do you normally drink?" They are also always excited to talk to you about what they have, where it came from, etc. A+
Selection: Smaller (maybe 12 pulls), but always great beers, and always changing. Bonus: I have NEVER had a stale beer here. Much more than I can say for Taps, the Saucer, the G-Man, etc.
Food: Burgers! Monday happy hour deal is sith.
If you haven't been there, go there. If you are just visiting Houston, this place will make you wish you lived here.

Stopped by this place at to meet up with trading buddy and brother from another mother lnashsig on my recent trip back home to houston.
Quaint place stashed away off a few side roads near Ella Blvd in North Houston. Had the urge to drive past it, looks like a dive from the outisde, lol.
Around 7pm on a Friday, people were bustling enjoying themselves but not crowed at all. ~10 seats at the bar, ~ 6 large picnic style tables inside, and large back patio. Didnt count the taps but more than 30 and all styles with about 2/3rds being all texas micros. 512, Independence, St. Arnold, east and west coast goodies and all different styles. I couldnt remember them all but this is definitely the type of place that you wont be able to try everything you'd like in one sitting. Since I was a visitor, everything on tap may not have been impressive to the regulars but this seems like the place to get rare releases as well.
Shared CBS, Older Viscocity 2008, Zhukov 2011, Kuhnhenn Bourbon Braggot etc with the staff and the head guy Troy is an awsome guy. Sharing is encouraged and rewarded. Oh and my round of beers were 12$ and I'm not talking about Natty Light, incredible to pay 3$ for top notch beer considering what I pay in NYC/NJ.
Burger I had was no joke as well.
Oh an all the workers there have awsome beards, like a secret beer cult.
I wish there were more places in my new home like this one in my old home. Highly reccommended and definitely better than GingerMan Houston just on selection alone.

Been going here for beers and burgers for a bit over a year now, figured it was time to review.
The top criticism of this place is wait time on food. That being said, they are limited by the size of their kitchen and I think that most people that frequent Petrol are aware of this and plan for it. Just be chill about waiting for your food, grab another beer, and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Your burger will be worth it.
The tap lineup provides great selection across styles and breweries; and they do growler fills, which, if you aren't from Texas, is a big deal.
Overall, just a great place for a lazy weekend afternoon or some after work beers.

The atmosphere of this place was great. Considering it is located in the middle of a neighborhood in the heights, I had my doubts... But the music was great and they have a big patio area in the back that makes it a perfect place to be on a nice day.
The quality of taps that they had was great. Alot of beers that you dont normally see around town and they rotate in new beers all the time.
I had great service when we went and they were very informative and helpful with my gf who is just getting into craft beer. They also do growler fills and I'm pretty sure they are the only place in town to do so.
Food was excellent. They are ranked in the top 4 for best burgers in Houston. Not to mention their hummus appetizer really hit this spot.
I thought that the beers were all reasonably priced for their selection. I was not upset when I received my bill at all
I definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a good craft beer and I cant wait to go back myself.

Finally went to a great craft beer bar in Houston and it felt like home nestled in a neighborhood. First walking in the had seats all around and rustic tables filled the rest of the space. Big size beer garden along with seating out front. If I lived near here I would be here everyday. The service was outstanding and the selection was expansive. The door to the cooler was filled with tap handles, a chalkboard around it with the food menu. Recommend the Duck Tacos BAM!! I had no idea about this place till a fellow advocate suggested we meet there for a trade.
Great Beer, Great Food, Great people (bartenders & customers) Great Place!!!

Right in my back yard, I can walk there!
Sadly, they were way cooler when no one knew this place existed. Now it's perpetually packed from the bar to the door, spilling over into the outside facilities.
But they carry some really, really good beers on tap. And the bartender always knows the beer and can informatively tell you what you're drinking, what it's like, and all that. The draft beers range from things you'll get at every bar in town to select craft beers to limited craft beers you probably can't find anywhere else. If you're a beer geek -- and you are if you're reading this -- it's a worthwhile, must-see visit.
