Taps House of Beer. Located on the very trendy Washington Avenue, its pretty easy to spot as the doorway is a large wooden beer cask on the front of a single store brick building. The entire bar is just one large room with outdoor patios in the front and back of the building. A long wooden bar runs the entire length of the right side with tables and chairs filling the rest of the space as well as a few comfortable leather recliners in the corners. Flat screen TV's ring the outside walls, making it easy to catch whatever game you're into.
I'm always glad to see a new beer bar opening in Houston, particularly one that opens with that many taps. However, whether they want it to be a beer bar or just another sports bar with a lot of taps will soon show based how well they look after the beer and the lines and the effort they put into educating their staff about the beer. Its a nice change of pace from my usual haunts, but there's nothing in particular to draw me out there at the moment, but I'll certainly be keeping an eye on it. The large patio area looks like it could be nice to hang out on in during the cooler (and hopefully soon) times of the year.
