Houston Press' Description

The Hay Merchant is much more than just a beer bar, despite its pedigree under owner and beer guru Kevin Floyd. Its equally talented chef, Antoine Ware, makes sure of that and turns out everything from high-end bar snacks like crispy pig ears and fries covered with Akaushi chili and Redneck cheddar to full-on entrées like lamb sweetbread po-boys and a "big-ass bowl of gumbo." Unlike its sister bar, Anvil, there is ample room inside and no liquor to be found. After all, this is a beer lover's bar, first and foremost. The list of beers in this uniquely Montrose haunt is enough to make even the most stern devotee of Bud Light convert the craft side.

    The Butcher's Burger and it's homemade nature is best enjoyed in its simplicity, but you can always top it with bacon and/or a fried egg.

    Ride your bike! With the One Less Car, On More Karbach promo, you can get whichever Karbach pint is featured for $3. They have extra bike racks on the side by the patio also.
