I ended up at Hopfields chasing a beer I tasted at Independence brewery and I'm so glad I did. One of my favorite beer pubs in Austin, especially thanks to their attention to IPAs. Every time I'm there I get to taste something new and I love it. The food is very good too. Order some burgers and fries with your beer; you won't regret it.

I stopped by here during a recent visit to Austin, based on a recommendation for a vegetarian-friendly place with craft beer. (That’s all I ask for, folks… only because there’s nothing for me to eat at all the amazing BBQ places in the world.) And the food and beer did not disappoint. There was a wall full of tap handles with local and familiar treats, with pours and pricing clearly marked. No cask engine but it might apparently be in the works. (Yes, I asked.) Plus it looks like they’re developing a serious drink program here, judging by the cocktail list and some overheard conversations. Nosey, nosey!
Based on the same recommendation I went right to the ratatouille, although it looks like there’s a number of snackables—a locally-sourced cheese plate, frites, salads—for those who aren’t interested in the burgers.
I sat at the bar and found service to be efficient, but somewhat inconsistent. Upon entering and taking the place in—do I seat myself, is there room at the bar, how can I find out what’s on tap and on the menu before I commit?—I bellied up at the bar and …waited. It wasn’t until a friendly couple to my left explained ‘how things work’ to me—grab a printed menu since those are updated, beer is listed on the far wall—that I figured out what to do. Which was fine, just confusing for my first visit. However, not long after another couple came in and sat down to my right—and a server met them at the bar, brought them menus and explained the specials of the day. It was such a glaring contrast as to be all too apparent and just the sort of thing that you’d hope they work out among their staff. Clearly, another visit is in order!
