Barton Fink Road at Kinney Avenue: You have got to love a place that has its own free shuttle service. They also offered valet parking, but we were having none of it. The exterior was long with a good deal of outdoor patio seating on the left facing side. Glass framed garage doors constituted he right facing side with a fenced-in series of picnic tables along the sidewalk center. The entry was left and the m.d.s. looked like a "Programs" kiosk at hockey and football games, except that the marquee read "Hostess". The laminated dark wood bar was in the shape of 5/8 of an octagon. The 10-barrel brewhouse was visible behind glass past the right of the bar beyond the kitchen. The restaurant area was right, overlooking Barton Fink Road through the garage doors. Panning around while seated at the bar, the women's was extreme right past the brewhouse and the men's was in the extreme left corner, past the hooks for farrior's puzzles. They were constructing an outdoor band stage. I also realized that the garage doors ringed the bulk of the exterior facing part of the building. Growlers!

Food: I went with the BBQ Tray, choosing smoked ½ chicken, glazed carrots, and green beans. The meat was so tender as to be falling off of the bone and so smoky as to make me weep. The combos were endless, but this was a good fit.

Beers: Bock 40 Blonde; Haystack Hefe; Organic Amber; Axe Handle Pale Ale.

Rotating: Special Hop Tap (Woodeye Rye PA); Special Dark & Malty Tap (Smokehouse Porter). Also guest taps from their friends at St. Arnold's, Real Ale, Live Oak, and Independence. 5's!

It was all done with smoke and beers. Sorry, I could not resist.

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.
