Uncle Billys is located on Barton Springs Restaurant Row just a stone's throw from Zilker Park. It is a wonderful place to have a decent beer and a reasonable priced bite to eat during the ACL festival or any other Zilker festival.

The beer selection is pretty much limited to the house beers, which is not such a bad thing. All the house beers are solid offerings. Brian Peters, the brewmaster, churns out creative offerings but has something for everybody. My favorite is their smoked beers, currently Thick Black Smoke, which pair perfectly with their barbecue. The smoke beers use malt which is smoked on premises so it gives a very nice smoke flavor.
There are a couple of taps that have guest beers. Usually there is a beer from Real Ale, Live Oak, and 512 Brewing on tap if you get tired of the house beers.
The food is very good for a brewpub but as Austin barbecue goes I would say it's just average. It is reasonable priced and service is fast and allows me to drink more beer.

They have a cask night every month or so, and whenever Brian feels like it. I have had some incredible cask offerings, Bitchin Camaro cask and a double Pilsner cask come to mind.

Overall, this is a great brewpub. The only drawback is the parking situation.

Uncle Billy's used to be my favorite brewpub in town when it opened, but it has definitely experienced a change since its first days. The head brewer leaving was a strike against it, even though the current brewer does a good job and makes some great beers, it was a step down compared to what it was. The food though has taken the biggest hit, as the menu and quality has changed for the worse. Don't get me wrong; it's not a terrible place, but I loved their chili cheese fries, and while the bbq wasn't anywhere near the best in town, it still was pretty tasty and went great with the beers here.

It's got a great location and patio on Barton Springs Road and is a nice place to hang out and grab some beers. Still definitely worth a visit.
