So word on the grapevine is that the guy that brews for them is the guy that used to brew for (or started) Live Oaks Brewery...Anywho, the first and foremost thing I will mention is that they sell growlers here!!! And good growlers at that!!! And they let you fill them for a cheap price and leave with them!!! Please God, show me a place in Houston that'll do that! Nowhere in Houston does....The staff is friendly, the service is great, the beers they make are very good...They just recently brewed a special beer known as Thick Black Smoke and it was the best Rauchbier I've ever had!!! Go to my review on it for tasting notes... They also carry the new (512) Brewery beer on tap. Very cool. Highly recommended place!

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.
