In a Facebook post early Tuesday morning, Moon Tower Inn, Houston's foremost experts at the divine art of meat in tube form and pairing it with well-priced craft beer, announced that its new building made of re-purposed shipping containers had finally passed City of Houston inspections. When the restaurant passes its Health Department inspection, which they predict will occur sometime in the next week, Moon Tower will finally reopen.
When the restaurant initially closed in October 2011 (yes, really), they expected to be reopen by February, but various delays pushed the timetable back. In an interview with Eater Houston, owner Evan Shannon said that he was most excited about expanding to 42 taps to allow Moon Tower to offer beer from breweries they hadn't previously. That will include their own brew made by former DeFalco's employees James McDonald and Andrew Byrd.
