Very chill spot with great food and good beer. The 6 beers in their regular lineup didn't "wow" me, nor did their Irish Stout seasonal, but the Brewer's Specials the night I went (Barton Kriek and Barrel-Aged King Kona Stout) were both top-notch. The Kriek, especially.

Server was very knowledgeable about the beer he was serving, was prompt and attentave, and recommended some great entrees. Only service complaint was the wait, but even that was fairly short given it was a Saturday night.

My beef tenderloin was absolutely perfect (served on chipotle potatoes, covered with fried onions and asparagus, and with jumbo shrimp on the sited). Well-cooked, flavorful, filling, all you could ask for in a meal. Everyone else at my table was pleased with their food as well.

Great restaurant, solid brewery, a bit pricey, but a highly recommended treat if you're ever in Austin. (879 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)
