Beer Menu

Altstadt Beer


A traditional German Wheat beer. More than half of the malt used in this full-bodied brew is made up of German malted wheat. But the star of this brew is the yeast! Fermented in our open fermentation vessels, the yeast is free to impart a variety of fruity and spicy clove-like flavors.


Our Kolsch is a crisp, well-balanced blend of select German malts, noble hops, and top fermenting yeast. This results in a light-golden colored, refreshing beverage with just a kiss of hops at the end. This delicate brew is comparable to the finest beers originating from Cologne, only it’s made right here in Texas!


In tradition with the classic German Märzen styles originally served at Oktoberfest. Mild hopping compliment the rich combination of Pilsner, Vienna and Munich malts which give this brew its beautiful light copper color. Lederhosen not required (although encouraged).

Karbach Brewing

KARBACH Crawford Bock

Karbach Crawford Bock is so smooth you can easily stretch that single into a double. Pairs perfectly with peanuts, stadium dogs, and a good 7th inning stretch! A portion of proceeds from every Crawford Bock go to the Astros Foundation!

Karbach Karbachoctoberfest

An authentic, Bavarian-style Marzen, decoction mashed with Vienna and Munich malts, cold fermented and aged for six weeks, this beer pairs well with pretzels and sausage, but it tastes mighty fine on it’s own.

Karbach Love Street

Brewed in the Kolsch-style and hopped delicately with floral German hops, this beer boasts a clean malt profile that refreshes to the core, without sacrificing character.

Modelo Especial

Well-balanced taste and light hop character with a crisp, clean finish. Modelo Especial is characterized by an orange blossom honey aroma with a hint of herb. Modelo Especial contains Water, Barley Malt, Non-malted Cereals and Hops.

St. Arnold Oktoberfest

A full bodied, malty, slightly sweet beer celebrating the Autumn harvest. This rich beer has a round malt flavor and an above average alcohol content perfect for a cool fall evening.

St. arnold H-town Pils

H-Town Pils represents the evolution of lager and pilsner brewing at Saint Arnold and is a beer that represents the character of Houston – balanced, complex, and welcoming. H-Town Pils is a classic Bohemian-style pilsner. This beer exemplifies what brewers look for: malt and hop flavor working together in harmony and creating balance from beginning to end. 

St. Arnold root beer

Big, sweet, flavorful and old-fashioned!

Saint Arnold Root Beer is made with Imperial Cane Sugar (absolutely no high fructose corn syrup) and lots of yummy (but secret) flavorings. The cane sugar gives it a sweetness and mouthfeel that cannot be achieved through corn syrup. The flavors explode in your mouth. The only way to improve on our Root Beer is to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Franziskaner Weissbier

This unfiltered wheat beer has a natural cloudy appearance. A crisp, distinctive, extremely refreshing taste with a hint of clove. The higher carbonation content gives this beer a sparkling champagne feel.
