Houston Hall is an enormous beer hall on Houston Street. Still with me?
I went recently for happy hour(s), and even though this place is seriously enormous, by 8 or so, it was super packed with good-lookin 28-35 year old types. Since I think of myself as approaching the age and temperament of Bea Arthur, I appreciated the lack of post-grads and also the lack of girls in heels. Apparently, I AM ALWAYS GROUCHY thank goodness there is beer.
Much has been made online of 2 facts: 1. That it’s the pet project of the guy behind Heartland Brewery and 2. All of the beers are brewed exclusively for them in Greenpoint, Brooklyn by Greenpoint Beerworks. Though the place is pretty new, when I tried to order the Black Saison, I was sad to hear they were out of it, and my waitress offered this helpful suggestion: “If you want something that color, you should try the Baltic Porter. It’s sort of like a Guiness, but lighter.”
Je die. Where is the hope for the beer education of our youth when a waitress in a BEER HALL says things like that?
I ordered the Baltic Porter anyway. It was medium bodied, slightly sweet, and very drinkable. And it was nothing like a Guiness.
