Since 2007—before beer bars were cool—this former coffee house in a former gas station has been pouring some of Houston’s finest pints. It’s deep in a neighborhood with a sprawling patio and a meandering lawn full of picnic tables. Ordering takes a while, but the knowledgeable staff will help find something to love among the 30-or-so taps. They’re also fond of special events, so look for rare offerings and tap takeovers.

What to drink
Combine your beer nerdery with your Star Wars nerdery and pick something under the headings of "Youngling," "Padawan" or "Jedi." Petrol Station won Stone Brewing’s Most Bitter Bar contest last year (and in 2011), and its commitment to all things IPA remains strong.
