Amazing food, beer, and a celebratory atmosphere would be enough reason to attend this feast, but there’s more. Saint Arnold has designated the event not only as a celebration for the greatest saint in history, but also as a fundraiser for Texas Children’s Hospital Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center. Part of the proceeds from the event will go to this extremely important local cause.
Admission to this fundraising event is $100 per person and includes all of your food and beer. The event has sold out in the past and likely will again, so click here to make your reservation and enjoy your evening of celebration at Houston’s Saint Arnold Brewing.
