    Damn the 300 character maximum on the Drinking Made Easy Season 3 suggestion form!!! I was mentioning an area encompassing 5 bars so I should’ve been allowed more space- lol!

      Just increased it to 500. We would prefer short and sweet since we have to go through all these ;)

    I can’t wait for y’all to come to Houston!! I emailed some very good suggestions! One was a perfect six-pack challenge idea!!

      Then it’s settled. Saint Arnold is a must. That is what I was going to say. I’m glad everyone was on board with my idea before I got on here. Looking forward to meeting Zane!

    It’s so damn cool that y’all are coming to Houston! Finally we get a chance to put Houstons craft beer scene on the map! We get over shadowed too much by the hipsters over in Austin! But, every Texan knows the best beer in Texas (Karbach,, Saint Arnold, Southern Star, No Label, exc.), the best food in Texas, and the finest women on the planet come from or live in Houston!!! Thank You Much Zane & Co!!!

      i’d love to see them go to st arnold, and do something for a six-pack challenge in the open area…before doing a tour or drinks at the bar. lots of fans around to watch. i live in cincinnati, but stopped by st arnold on a recent trip to houston – awesome!

    Houston! Go to the Petrol Station and Saint Arnolds Brewery.

    I agree with Chris!!! St Arnold’s is the best and it’s a perfect stop for your show!!

  8. Joseph Sommers February 16, 2012 at 9:06 pm - Reply

    St. Arnold’s is a no brainer also I suggest Railean distilling in San Leon which is about 45 minutes south of H-Town it’s a 1 woman operation and she make’s 3 different Rum’s as well as a Blue Agave (Tequila).

    Go to Saint Arnold and the Petrol Station when you’re in Houston!!! Must-stop places for you guys.

  10. JAN February 17, 2012 at 6:21 am - Reply

    You must hit Southtown in San Antonio. Check out The Friendly Spot Ice House and The Monterrey.

    Petrol Station – best beer bar/gastropub
    St. Arnold’s – oldest brewery; only do it if they share some Divine Reserve.

    I’ve lived in Texas for 12 years now and I must say – some of the best beers I’ve had are brewed in this state (the wine…meh). You won’t find as many brewers as most states but you will find some great ones in each of the metro areas: Saint Arnold, Rahr, Franconio, Shiner, Real Ale.

    I know there’s many more but my point is – each one produces some fantastic beer!

    These guys got it right, Saint Arnold’s in Houston is the place to be in Houston on a Saturday afternoon.

    ST. ARNOLD’S IN HOUSTON! Texas’ oldest craft brewery! It continues to grow! A must see!

    Texas Tea at the Marquis II in Houston. Houston does have an amazing craft beer scene, but for the stiffest drink that lives up to “everything’s bigger in Texas,” it’s the Tea at Marquis II.

    I agree with St Arnolds..first round on me(ok only for Steve, Pleepleus, and Zane)

    If in San Anton you must stop by the buckhorn, for the history and the Lone Star Beer, Bring your horns. you can still trade for them for booze….

    Anvil Bar and Refuge is a great stop for serious bartending. The delicious drinks are uniquely made with quality liquor, homemade mixers and special ice cubes. A must for your Houston visit!

    The Marquis II. The Texas Tea is beast!!!

  20. Chris February 20, 2012 at 10:22 pm - Reply

    Houston – Anvil for cocktails, Karbach for craft brewery, Valhalla on Rice’s campus for a unique bar, Petrol Station for another unique bar (old gas station & rated hoppiest bar in the USA by Stone brewing)

    When you are in Houston, you have to swing by Three Sheets Bar & Grill and try the Lap Dance shot and the Jack Frost (frozen Jack & Coke)!!!

    Saint Arnold- Texas Oldest Craft Brewery (Coolest Brewery Building)
    Karbach- Best actual beer (Eric Warner Old Flying Dog CEO)

    The Texas tea at the Marquis II will leave you wanting 10 more, but you only need 1 :)

    The Marque ll in Houston. They have the best Texas Teas!!!!

  25. Lauren February 27, 2012 at 11:46 am - Reply

    Karbach Brewing Company!!

    If you’re looking for the most famous drink in the 4th largest city in America then there is no place more famous than the Marquis II in Houston. The Texas Tea at the Marqis II will have you hugging random strangers and calling long lost family members. It is a MUST if you want to experience how true Texans get down.

    Cool Place! Established in 1934, Air Devils Inn was opened immediately after the repeal of Prohibition. After 70 years of continuous operation in the same building, ADI is perhaps the oldest bar in Louisville. It has changed ownership several times throughout its history, but maintains a reputation for lively conversation, excellent bands (playing original music), intelligent bartenders, and cheap drinks. Check out our original neon sign — the oldest neon sign in Louisville.

    Witch episode had the bar with the pint glass koozie’s

    Really? All this talk about Houston and noone has mentioned Marfreless? One of the oldest, coolest, and definitely most unique bars anywhere. No sign!!

  30. Shannon March 19, 2012 at 8:31 am - Reply

    Bars come and go in Houston, but if you are looking for a Houston instituition, head on over to the RIver Oaks shopping center and look for the blue door under the stairwell, Marfrelles! Serving fabulous drinks since the 1970’s!!!! Have the best Pimm’s Cup you will ever have!!!! Martini’s rock too!!!!

    Marfreless, is one of the best secrets of the Houston bar scene. No sign, no promoting, yet still alive and kicking for the passed 40 years. I absolutely love how it is an perfect spot to relax with a friend with a few delicious drinks over candlelight, or a great place to bring a group of friends and laugh the night away. Love this spot!

    Y’all need to try my craft beer ;) Actually, St. Arnold and Southern Star is awesome. St. Arnold is located in an old HISD school which is kinda funny. Once you walk in you know that smell then realize…wow…this is a school! So when are y’all coming to Houston?

    I’m going to Burlington, VT – April 24-26 – any suggestions on places to hit?

  34. Billie Haggerty April 10, 2012 at 1:53 pm - Reply

    As a former Houstonian, now living in New York City, I can honestly say there is no place like Marfreless! Not only is it one of the oldest bars in Houston, but it has so much character!Dim lights, classical music, good for dates, or groups of friends, that want a nice night out! It is conveniently hidden, has never had a sign outside, and is only recognizable by the blue door on a white brick background!!! A true speak easy style bar. A must see!

    I’m so pumped about you guys coming to Louisville! I’m ready to get Mckenna’d

    I seriously CANNOT wait for your visit to Indy! Are you doing the comedy tour show as well in town?
    Places I can think of-
    *Upland Brewery [only 35min south, next to Indiana U],
    *Kilroys [dare you to try all of their long islands],
    *Alcapulco Joes……

    Definitely Louisville! Some great beer bars, breweries, & of course distilleries to boot!!!

    I see there is a new episode listed to air at Midnight on Dec. 13th. Providence? I don’t see that city listed anywhere in Season 3. Was that a recently taped/secret episode? I’ve been trying to keep the season updated on for you guys and wasn’t expecting that episode/city.

      Hey Chad,

      That episode was originally supposed to be the hamptons, but got changed to providence
