When PSA Wines sommelier Justin Vann told us he would be releasing a definitive field manual for BYOB in Houston, we demanded he let us publish it, too. Below are his thoughts, comments and observations to guide diners into successful BYOB pairings. The intro text and map summarize the contents of the document and spreadsheet embedded at the bottom. See them for full details. Take it away, Justin.

This is a list of restaurants that allow you to bring your own wine and beer. It catalogs how much it costs to do so at each establishment, what kind of glassware (if any) they provide, and if they have any wine or beer in house already.
Also, we take it a step further and provide wine and beer suggestions with 3-5 classic dishes from certain establishments. Some of them we've tested, others are admittedly just suggestions we cooked up in theory. They're something to get you thinking critically about what to bring. Don't feel obligated to follow them exactly. Be a rebel and break some goddamn rules. Just get out there and booze it up- on your own terms. That's the joy of BYOB.
