Mighty big downtown you've got there

Via Saint Arnold Goes To Austin, this amusing description of Houston geography from USA Today:

Located in downtown Houston, this highly regarded beermaker is named after the seventh-century French Catholic bishop who admonished his flock that suds were safer than drinking water, thus earning him the moniker Patron Saint of Brewers. "The tasting area has Oktoberfest-like picnic tables - plus something I treasure, a great tasting glass," Kuderka says. The Elissa brand makes a great starter.

Emphasis mine. In case you've never been, here is where the brewery actually is. 'Nuff said.

I should note that the article in question is about the best breweries in America to visit. On that score, we agree. Though the brewery tours are sadly no longer free, they're still a great value. Definitely worth it, and frankly now that the crowds may be a bit thinner, it's probably a better experience overall. (Yes, it's been too long since I've been. I may need to rectify that soon.)
