While their new facility is a wonder to behold (walking around the production floor with rows of 240BBL fermenters is inspiring), I will say that I miss their old facility where the tour took place on the production floor rather than a hall. Don't get me wrong, it's a great hall, but I enjoyed walking around and seeing the fermenters and other brewing equipment whenever I wanted.... I might just be selfish though.

Saint Arnold continues to add new features to the brewery experience. About 6 months ago, they started doing lunches during the weekday. It is a set lunch that rotates everyday served from 11:00 to about 1:30. Usually a salad and an entree. Once you order your lunch at the front register, your number will be called out on the loud speaker when it is ready, and pick it up at the back counter by the taps.
On my most recent visit they had a chopped salad and Pork Tenderloin with this amazeballs fig and onion Balsamic Relish, served with grilled carrots and English peas. A really good rustic, and flavorful dish. Other days it could be anything from chicken fried steak to Belgian Mussels. All excellent.
The regular tour times are still the same, and now during Saturday tours they will have small snacks for purchase. Like Pretzels, Brats, etc.
Of coarse they can not sell beer to go yet, but now you can buy pints at the brewery. There are at least three casks, and they will have Divine Reserves and Bishops Barrel on offer. They still do the regular tour tasting, with the glass and tokens. Though being able to buy a cask Amber, which paired perfectly with the Pork Tenderloin for lunch is awesome. It is also nice being able to buy a cask/BB/DR, if you don't want to do tokens at all during the tour hours. Outside of those, the selection is pretty much their standard fair.
I really like how Saint Arnold continues to try things and make the brewery experience fun and different than just a warehouse vibe that the other breweries do in Houston. The Harry Potter/German beer hall area is a great relaxed vibe, and an excellent lunch on a weekday.

My wife and I toured the brewery on Labor Day. I was excited to tour the brewery while on vacation. Unfortunately, when we got there because it was at lunch time in order to sample the beer we had to buy lunch. Not sure if that was because of the holiday or not but the lunch was $19.00 per person. That included lunch which was nachos, chili dog, and then all the flagship beer that you wanted while eating. I guess its not too bad of a deal but it wasn't ideal for us because we only could stay there for about 45 minutes due to our flight home. They were offering tours for $7or $8 later in the day but we didn't have the option of staying for that. When we asked if we could just pay to sample the beer the girl at the counter acted like we were crazy for asking and was rather rude even when we explained our situation. Aside from that the brewery was nice and even though we were rushed we had a good time. I had tried all of there flagship beers before except for the Elissa IPA and the Santo. I really liked the Santo. They also had Octoberfest on tap as their seasonal. I also tried the Icon Green, but you had to pay $6 for a pint of it because it is one of their special offerings and wasn't offered along with their regular beers.
