Saint Arnold Brewing Company was founded in 1994 in Houston, Texas by Brock Wagner and Kevin Bartol. The two friends chose Houston because, other than living there, this was the largest city in the country that did not have a microbrewery at the time.

While in college at Rice University, Wagner took up home brewing and hoped one day he would open a microbrewery. After graduating, Brock spent six years in investment banking working on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions projects, but in the mid 1990’s, decided it was time to follow his dream of brewing and teamed up with Kevin Bartol to establish Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company was named after the patron saint of beer brewing, Saint Arnulf of Metz, which in English is Saint Arnold. Each of the large brewing vessels in the brewery is named after the lesser patron saints of brewing and many of the beer labels depict a modernized image of the Saint.

Saint Arnold was originally located on the far northwest side of Houston, a location that held for more than fifteen years before the brewery moved to its current larger facility in the Northside district of downtown Houston in 2010. Here, the brewery offers tours every weekday and Saturday afternoon, and pours a selection of Saint Arnold beers, all of which are inspired from Brock Wagner’s home brewing recipes. This new brewery location has the maximum capacity to brew over 100,000 barrels.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company currently brews over 20 craft beers many of which have earned medals at national beer competitions and beer festivals. Even more impressive is that Saint Arnold was recently ranked #48 on the Brewers Association list of Top Craft Breweries in the Country. Saint Arnold has won plenty of other national and international awards including Mid Size Brewery of the Year 2017.

In 2018, the company opened a beer garden attached to the brewery with a taproom,  Along with the brewery and beer tour, the Saint Arnold Brewing Company location also has a cathedral inspired restaurant and beer garden. Their restaurant menu offers a delicious selection of pizzas, salads, sandwiches, and shareable plates.  restaurant, and gift shop.
