Made in Houston: Axelrad Beer Garden
Posted on 28 May 2017
Houston's bar scene is thriving lately and looks to only get more competitive as spots continue to open with new angles to draw interest. Within a little over a year's time Axelrad has laid roots in the industry as a must visit destination for everyone in the city looking for a great night. For those who have been before this piece will read like a highlight film for your favorite athlete and for those who have yet to stop by you will understand why you need this laid back spot in your life. With craft beers and cocktails, hammocks, Luigi's pizza, and live music Axelrad Beer Garden is what we love about Houston.
The wide range of craft beer, cocktails, and wine offer any potential customer something to love. As opposed to some bars where you may feel limited to order a typical beer or cocktail, at Axelrad they have put their own twist on well known drinks as well as creating new drinks regularly with help from their talented bar staff. The impressive and always changing beer menu offers something for all beer consumers to enjoy with 31 choices hooked to the coolest tap handles around made by Venezuela's Maria Rangel. Offering flagship beers from established craft breweries mixed with some seasonal greats and topped off with a few rare options - currently serving Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA and 2016 Prairie Barrel Aged - they truly live up to their beer garden tag. If you can't find just one to pick they also have buckets of craft cans that are a great way to split with a friend while you share a pizza from one of Houston's best Luigi's Pizzeria.
Once you have your drink the real experience begins as you step onto their huge patio where you have the choice of going upstairs, sitting at one of the several tables inside or outside, or getting in one of the hammocks - just don't fall because while a friend may help you up they will also laugh at you hysterically. Kick back and enjoy the scenery of the beautiful garden, video art pieces, and the sounds of the DJ or band they're featuring for the night.
There's never a day wasted at Axelrad with live music, movie nights, or brewery events always scheduled for your entertainment. Whatever day of the week you choose to come out there's a good reason to stay and that is what makes them stand out, straying away from the usual events Axelrad innovates ways to play to their customers interests. Coming up soon they will be holding a mini tap takeover with Oskar Blues, a movie night with Oasis Brewing screening Napoleon Dynamite, and a charity event with Zilker Bark.
Houston didn't even realize we needed a place like Axelrad Beer Garden until they came in and instantly set the standard for the bar industry. We appreciate all of the work they have done already in the community with charities and look forward to what they bring us next.
