Stopped in for drinks after work, and ended up staying for a while to watch the football game. Bar is by the entrance, with a couple patios and a large restaurant area. Design is modern lodge, the brewing equipment was behind glass towards the front. The whole place seemed upscale, but also felt a bit sterile. The beers were all good, especially the APA special they had on tap. Didn't try any food, but did check out the menu .. looked interesting but a bit pricey.

Good quality beer, but the atmosphere didn't appeal to me - a bit too sterile, with a bit of a corporate feel. That said if you are in the area its a nice place to stop for a beer or three, and it worked well with a work crowd. (697 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)

I happened to book a cheap motel right next to this brewery, so close we were able to walk to it after checking in.

Bland/new/shiny/cookie-cuter/chain-y looking, but good alright. Lively on Valentine's Day night, albeit not super busy- the dining room was rather full, but the bar had some seats and we sat at a little lounge area to the left of the bar.

They had nine house taps: Amber, Jingo Pale, Light, Okanogan Black, Dunkelweizen, Helen Bock, Excalibur ESB and Blackjack Ale (bourbon-barrel aged).

We tried the Jingo (4/5), Okanogan (3/5), Black Jack (2.5/5) and Dunkelweizen (3.5/5). The barrel-aged Black Jack was incredibly lacking, with no bourbon aroma or flavor. The Jingo Pale was a remarkable APA and my favorite of the bunch.

Service was OK but not great and prices are fine ($4.75 per pint on average).

The food menu is big and has some interesting items, including Texas quail and duck breast, but by the time I decided to order the kitchen had closed.

Not the best beer joint ever, but a serviceable one nonetheless. (1,046 characters)
