Saint Arnold Brewing Company: Making little guys look great

Our Journey

Saint Arnold Brewing Company is one of Texas’ oldest craft breweries in existence that is still in operation. Like many of the craft breweries throughout the United States, they offer excellent craft beer at a reasonable price that has gained a lot of popularity. This is partly due to the rise in popularity of craft beer in general due a public that has become disillusioned with the big brewers like AB-Inbev.

Bigger is not always better

Does that mean the big names don’t make some pretty good craft beer? Of course not, they’ve been buying craft breweries over the years and even managed to obtain Anheuser-Busch, thus why they are no longer called just Inbev. However, it is the littler guys like Saint Arnold Brewing Company that really shine in the spotlight.

This is not because they have huge sales, multi-national advertising campaigns, or hot cheerleaders to strut around at distribution parties. It is because they are a smaller craft brewery. One that is dedicated to quality, not quantity, and taste, not waste. While the larger brewers are set on acquiring the smaller craft breweries, it is because those breweries are providing the product the craft beer community wants. A community that has turned away from big brewing with a quickness during a time when dozens of micro-breweries are popping up for their enjoyment.

What does Saint Arnold have that is so great?

Simply put, Saint Arnold Brewing has great craft beer. The craft brewing community loves a well-crafted brew, and they’re willing to pay for the best. This is evidenced by the sales of craft breweries like Funky Buddha, who have already topped $25 a bottle for their brews. Saint Arnold Brewing shows that same quality and dedication to taste, aroma, and true excellence.

With many years in the craft already, they’re providing us with outstanding craft beers like Pub Crawl Pale Ale which features a very solid blend of hops and malts, with a slightly heavier influence on the hops end. Medium bodied, with a reasonable ABV of 4.7%, this brew is quite sessionable and the taste is divine. The brew begins with Centennial hops for a great dose of bitter bite, ending with Amarillo and Galaxy hops for taste and aroma. The addition of two well-chosen malts helps to balance everything out into a very smooth drinking brew.

Pub Crawl is only one of the many great brews from Saint Arnold Brewing Company. We really suggest paying them a visit if you get the chance, as their knowledgeable staff will happily help you select a brew to try, or a few, and you’ll love the events they set up as well. Be sure to stop back in and let us know what you thought of their great craft beer, because we’ll be happy to feature any brews that you really enjoyed later on.

In the meantime, from all of us here at West Palm Beach Brewery and Wine Vault, happy tasting!
