Houston Press' Description

A state historical marker outside the Brewery Tap honors the building's past as one of Houston's biggest breweries, which at one point took up several acres of what is now prime downtown real estate. Housed in the old Houston Ice & Brewing Company building (the actual brewery shuttered in 1950), the bar has an old-school luster otherwise only found downtown at La Carafe or Warren's Inn a few blocks east. Depending on the season, the Brewery Tap is also a perfect spot to lay low after an Astros or Rockets game. Sharing the building with the Brewery Tap, the Magnolia Ballroom hosts wedding receptions and the like in its grand halls. If you come on the right night, you can sometimes catch a punk show too.
