A pretty large place. A separate bar section with shared benches as well as a more formal dining room.
The food is tasty. I have the tomato bisque, flavored with blue cheese, each time I go. I love it. Everything else I've had has been good, but that soup is excellent. Menu is generally upscale American. A little pricey but good for the quality.
Service has always been prompt and efficient. And usually pretty eager to talk beer.
Their house beers range from mediocre safe brewpub standards to a rotating selection of quality seasonals. A nice range of options. Growlers are pricey, but feature a very pretty fliptop bottle. They also offer bombers, which were very reasonably priced for their Irish Stout.

This is quickly becoming a regular stop on my Austin beer runs...

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.
