“A Homage to America's Brewing Tradition!”
We’re a proud bunch of beer enthusiasts obsessed with serving the very best food and craft beer we can get—and delivering it in the way it was meant to be enjoyed. We are excited to offer a broad spectrum of craft brews to our community of longtime beer lovers (and the beer-curious). Take Westheimer (our beer joint’s street), for example. Houston’s most famous thoroughfare is named after a German immigrant who built Houston’s first public school on his own dime, raised 16 children, spoke six languages, and maintained a large plot of land just west of Montrose. Among his many professions, Westheimer was a hay merchant, and 150 years later, we’d like to think that we’re pushing grains of a different sort. These remarkable brewers take the crafting of beer very seriously, and we try to do them justice by taking the serving of beers just as seriously. As a testament to their energies, we’ve gone to painstaking efforts to ensure that our beers are always served at the proper temperature, with the correct pressure and gas mix, in appropriate glassware, and by folks who know what the hell they’re talking about. At The Hay Merchant, you’ll not only find a ridiculous selection of well-chosen beers, they’ll taste better than they do anywhere else. We’re not bragging! OK, maybe a little bit … but isn’t taste the whole reason you’re into craft brews and not drinking some watered-down crap from a Super Bowl commercial?
Houston has plenty of great beer bars, but Hay Merchant is an exceptional beer bar. If you want to get lost in the beer-geekery of the draft system, this is the place. An aggressive cask-beer program highlights rare and unusual offerings in a format that is only just becoming prevalent. That and a cellared bottle list culled from head honcho Kevin Floyd's personal collection make Hay Merchant a foregone conclusion for any serious beer nerd. The food's not half bad, either.
It was great, until I got sick... it was all I had eaten that day.
