The Farm Drinkery

Visited a local craft beer bar tonight with friends: The Farm Drinkery in NW Houston (aka Spring). Very small venue, but fun. Love that it's not too loud, although that also meant four of us were sitting at the bar where it's hard for the two on the outside of the pack to engage in conversation.

Small, but cozy.

  • First beer was 11 Below  OSO Bueno Amber. Not bad. Not great. I will try it again.
  • 8th Wonder Dome Fau'z (foam). This is better. I might get a growler of this to go home.
  • Guns and Oil Maverick Lager was okay, but I don't remember anything special about it.

A funky menu for a funky place
My friends (Lynn & Root) raved about the fried peanut butter & jelly sandwich, but I wasn't in the mood for anything sweet, so  I had the fried pickles and they were pretty good. My wife thought they were a little spicy, and she didn't care for their Ranch Dressing (but that's not a surprise, as she hates almost all bottled Ranch Dressing and prefers to make her own). But I liked them, and although they were a little slow to come out of the kitchen, the friendliness of the server and the competency of the waitstaff more than made up for it.

In all, we had a nice time. My wife hates bars, but I'm planning to visit some afternoon after work and test a beer or two.
