Brews Cruise with St. Arnold’s Brewery and Houston Dairymaids
Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s Brews Cruise series kicks off featuring a beer and cheese tasting with the Houston Dairymaids and Saint Arnold Brewing Company. As you cruise down our city’s historic waterway, you’ll enjoy local Texas cheeses coupled with Saint Arnold’s award-winning beers. The Dairymaids, Houston’s official cheesemongers, travel the state to find the best cheeses from local dairies, food artisans and cheesemakers. They bring the cheeses back to Houstonwhere they make them available at some ofHouston’s leading restaurants and from their Heights warehouse.
Texas’s oldest craft brewery, Saint Arnold, has been in business since 1994. The brewery has expanded to a warehouse in north downtown where they brew 10 different beers a year, and hold weekly happy hours and other special events.
