I really enjoyed my time here. As you walk in there is a large Icehouse like patio/deck outside. Wood tables and some covered seating from the trees coming through the deck. There is an outside bar as well. Inside is a large room with high and low top tables scattered around. The main bar is a made of wood, and the tanks can be seen at the far end. When the weather is nice, all the doors are open, which is awesome. A great breeze was blowing through, and it was just a great relaxing time.

The bar staff is well informed, and passionate about their beer. It was funny listening to them talk about the new Black Star Co Op Brewpub. Nothing bad, but they just have a different perspective than some other people it seems. The quality of everything was fine as well. All the taps were very clean and fresh. The food left something to be desired. I was not expecting world class BBQ, but it really was not all that good.

The beer they have is very good. Mostly simple styles, but all are enjoyable and well crafted. Styles rang from a Kolsch to an imperial stout. My favorites are the Kolsch (very flavorful) and the pale ale. They also have several other local beers on tap. Live Oak, and Franconia. Very nice.

Overall and excellent place to relax and have a beer. I could have stayed here all day.

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.
