4.08/5  rDev -3.3%

West Coast/Colorado tasting room atmosphere with decent tap selection and simple but good pub food.

Visited on a Friday for lunch. The crowds had not yet arrived, so it was easy to find a table. Very open industrial feel. Lots of glass and steel. Reminded me of some of the places I've been to in Colorado and So. Cal. Counter service only. I had a (house made) veggie burger with fries, both of which were much better than average. I am reluctant to rate the food higher, since what they offer is very simple pub fare. Same goes with the service, which was quick, friendly, and knowledgeable, but counter service nonetheless. Prices were very reasonable.

What I liked the most:
*Nice selection of on-site brews plus guest taps. Maybe twenty-five to thirty taps in all with 1/3 devoted to house beers.
*The atmosphere was inviting. When I lived in Longmont, I would regularly go to the Lefthand tasting room. This place gave me the same vibe (and has much better food).
*The coop business model.

What I liked the least:
*Parking was surprisingly hard to find for a Friday lunch. It's located in a mixed use development with most of the parking garage dedicated to residents. On while there were only about a dozen people at the Coop, and fewer people walking around the retail shops, I wound up on the third floor of the garage.
*The location. I live in South Austin.

What would get me to return?:
I'd love to return, but I'd have to do so at a time of day where it wouldn't take me an hour to get there. If it was in my neighborhood, I'd be there often.
