A new and modern brewpub and restaurant on the north side of town which, according to its menu, tries to bring a bit of the Pacific Northwest to Texas. Nothing earth-shattering about it but, overall, not a bad place.

The restaurant is really more the star here than the beers with the menu selections sometimes experimental but always great (oh! those garlic fries). Atmosphere is brewpub modern, lots of wood and exposed steel with the brew tanks visible behind the bar. Full bar service, also, and what appears to be a quite extensive wine selection.

Beers are typical styles -- not experimental like Bitter End -- and are good but not terribly memorable. Five taps and a rotating offering, their Octoberfest was pretty good. Growlers available, no outside brands, which I respect in a brewpub. Worthy of repeat visits.

Sat outside on a perfect September night. Didn't have any food. Service was very good except she forgot my glass of water. Had not one but two different samplers (there may have been 2 or 3 repeats in the samplers out of 6 beers but there were also other beers that were not in either sampler). All of the beers were very good to excellent except one which was fair. The high quality was evident. I very much enjoyed my visit and highly recommend a stop in to all beer travelers when in the area.

A slightly upscale brewpub. Only offer their brews, which some of their one-offs are really good. Food is good, but can be on the more expensive side for brewpubs and Austin. The burger is really good.

In San Antonio NXNW would be awesome, but for Austin... nope. A surprising number of older folks just hanging out on the front patio getting wasted. The food and service were good, just kinda reminded my of a Chili's or TGIFriday.
