Flew in from out of town and was greeted by a wonderful enthusiastic staff willing to discuss everything from beer, food, music and Texas culture. Friendly and informative, this staff has passion for their job.

Great selection of the rare hard to find tap beers from Texas and elsewhere.

The menu was small but everything was delicious.

They have a beer trading program so bring in some stuff from out of state, and trade for what you cant get back home.

For the beer/food enthusiast Hopfields is a must when touring Austin's bar scene. I will come back here every time I come to Austin.

Very new place. Only open a couple months. Clean and open area but small. A smaller room in back. Interior done very well.

Taps well represent craft beer from US and Europe. I enjoyed several over a few hours will update this later when I have the list in front of me. Bottle list is much smaller than taps, thus hurting selection a bit.

Food is awesome. Had the lamb sausage topped with frites and aioli sandwich. Wish the Triple Karmeliet crepe with lavendar vanilla was bigger. Interesting beer companion.

Congratulations Austin on another great beer bar!

I came here for the first time when I saw that they had Prairie Bomb! on tap and was excited to try it. I was even more pleased to see that they offer 1/2 pours at 1/2 price which was great because there were tons of beers that I wanted to try.
The beer list is pretty expansive and they've got 50 or so + high quality craft beers on tap. As if that weren't enough, the food was absolutely fantastic. Seriously one of the best burgers I've even had in my life with the most tender and flavorful beef. I came back and had it again and it was equally as delicious and well cooked.
Another awesome spot in town and with reasonable prices I thought, for the quality.

I had lunch here yesterday and really enjoyed the food and beer selection.
Food was very tasty. I had a burger and fries and it was very good. Not your typical burger and was cooked perfectly medium rare.
The beer selection was great and I especially like how they have what's on tap displayed. On one wall they have hand painted wooden placards that can easily be switched out if a tap changes. The placards also display the size of the pour and the price. Awesome.
My only complaint is that there is no wait service. You have to order from the bar. Since it was a late lunch this was no issue since their were only a few people in the place but I can see it being an issue for me on a busy evening.
I didn't see any highchairs for kids but I would come back with my one year old if they had them(before 7pm though).

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!

Hopfields provides a comfortable space that's unfortunately close to the University. The interior is cool and inviting with picnic benches in the front of the house and several room like spaces toward the back. When the weather permits, there's also sun shaded outdoor seating. Due to it's proximity to UT, the best time to go is during lunch or between long sessions. This is not to say it won't be crowded and loud during this time. My most recent visit was on a Friday after the Spring session. At 4:30 it was starting to fill and by 6:30 it was hard to have a conversation at the front of the house. This shouldn't dissuade you from going, though. The beer selection, while not enormous, is large enough to keep you coming back on a somewhat regular basis with a nice mix of Texas and non-Texas beers. Service is good and the staff knowledgeable. The is very good, as well, with the burger being my favorite.

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.
