I use to frequent NXNW all the time before getting more into better beers. The restaurant has a very nice and laid back atmosphere where you will see people dressed up and people like me that show up in shorts and sandals.

They have 5 standard taps plus one or two seasonal taps. Their regular offerings are a new break from regular beers that you get everywhere but I tend to enjoy there seasonal beers a lot more.

The waitstaff and bartenders and quick and friendly.

The selection consist solely of there own beer which at times can be disappointing but I guess that is part of the reason to go there.

The food is excellent and I have never been disappointed by anything I order here. I especially love coming for the Sunday brunch.

By far my favorite brew they make is the Kodiak IPA. Which is one of there many beers they offer for take home in bomber bottles. They also sell growlers for $25 of any beer on tap which you can get refilled for $15 if i remember correctly. They also offer a mug club for frequent visitors. (1,030 characters)

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. (201 characters)

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. (230 characters)
