Where to Find Craft Beer at Hobby Airport
My flight to Nashville was delayed three times due to thunder storms, and I began to get a little parched. Craft beer was kind of scarce, so I figured I’d help you with where to find craft beer at Hobby Airport.
I was headed to Nashville for some family stuff, but I had Bearded Iris, Southern Grist and a few others on my agenda, so I decided I’d go grab a beer real quick. To my astonishment, there weren’t many options.**
The first Papasito’s I checked out only had one – Shiner Bock. I’m happy to drink a Shiner Bock now and again, but I decided I’d survey the landscape to see if there were others since I knew I had the time. The concrete jungle turned into a desert pretty quickly. I was shocked at the lack of selection!
Hobby’s pretty humble. In size, food, and destinations offered, it’s a pretty small airport in comparison to Bush. But I was still shocked at the sparse craft options.
So sparse that I wrote a letter to Tilman Fertita to see if anything could be done. Be on the lookout for that, and help us get it in front of his eyes.
Until then, check out the list of where to find craft beer at Hobby Airport below, so you can possibly find something to make the most of that delayed flight. You can click on the links of any of the restaurant names to visit their sites and confirm their menus as well as any of the beers to read about them if you’re unfamiliar.
**Disclaimer: To be fair, I had already passed airport security, so I didn’t get to survey Pappa’s Bar-B-Q, but I did call them after the fact to confirm their selection.

I wonder if just one of these spots decided to double down on craft how that’d change their revenue. I wonder if it’d turn quick enough to stay fresh. Only time’ll tell, but until then, safe travels and beers to you, Houston!
