Looking for that local beer? This is the place. They have them all as well as the knowledge to point you in the right direction in an amazing collection of beers locally crafted.

Good for families, adults, or yourself if you’re on a business trip.

Multiple televisions and a great friendly atmosphere.

Not a large place but just big enough to always feel lively. The number of beer choices was surprising given the size of the place. Service was attentive, the food was very reasonable and delicious. Great place with a few buds or the family. The menu isn't huge but the array of dishes is well chosen. Loved it.

Nothing beats a great beer bar, but for the longest time, these establishments overflowing with craft beer options were difficult to find in my area of west Houston. Now, I have a couple places within minutes of my house and one that I like and still visit is Growler USA.

Growler USA is part of a small but growing nationwide chain that opened this Katy, Texas branch not too long ago. Being a beer writer, I was anxious to check this place out and I was one of the first people to visit. I took one look at the long row of taps, 100 strong, and immediately fell in love. They serve a very wide variety of beer styles and continuously rotate so that you can always find something you like.

To help keep things organized and help eliminate errors, Growler USA numbers all of its beers on the menu and on an electronic display above the bar. Tracking beer by number means less chance that the customer or the server will make a mistake and bring the wrong beer. And when you have this many choices, you need an efficient way to serve and the numbering system seems to work well.

Besides the beer, Growler USA has you covered on the food end with a small menu of items that match well with beer. They serve several good- tasting appetizers like wings, hummus, and loaded tator tots, plus wraps, sandwiches, and a few desserts. I usually start off with an appetizer then order a wrap, making sure to keep filling my beer glass or flight sampler along the way. They have wine on tap, too.

Growler USA is on the small side and it has an atmosphere that is like a sports bar. The interior can get crowded and noisy due to the size. They have outdoor seating, too, but it’s limited. The size is one thing I wish was different, but who knows what the future may bring? If they continue to enjoy success, they might move to a larger location in the future.

Beer bars are my favorite places in the world and Growler USA has become a family fave due to its massive beer selection, tasty bar bites, and friendly service. If you love craft beer and live in the Houston area, you need to make it a point to visit this establishment, just to gaze in awe at the lengthy row of taps as you ponder your selection. It’s a great addition to the Katy, TX area and one of my favorite hangouts.

Went there pretty late after work. At 11:30 on a Fri night there was only one couple at the bar and a table with 4 or 5 people at it. The beer selection is really good, you'll have no trouble finding several styles you like. The bartender was superb and she knew everything about each beer I asked about. Didn't try the food. Lots of sports on the tvs (no sound). I'll be back for sure.
