I was in town for ACL and was glad I stopped by (twice). The first visit was on Friday of ACL and the place was somewhat dead. Nice Texas style atmoshphere with the wood and open air feel to it; a nice clean place.

I ordered a Real Ale IPA. The bartender (bearded guy) seemed intent on pushing his ESB but after reading about Real Ale I wanted the IPA; an amazing IPA by the way. I felt obliged to taste their own beer and grabbed their Wit; refershing beer that hit the spot on a hot day.

They had about five of their in-house brews on tap, 3-4 guest taps, and plenty of bottles. I didn't spend a ton of time looking over their selection but it would suffice any beer geek.

The second visit I ordered some chili and mac-n-cheese, very tasty with the chili packing a nice Texas-heat punch. The food and beer were very affordable and I will certainly stop by this place again when I make my way back to Austin.

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.
