I am surprised nobody has reviewed this place yet. This is a great new beer bar that has been open for about 6 months. First off, everything is made of wood, a fairly long wood bar along the right, wood benches make up the main indoor dinning area. There is a chalkboard at the far end that will have specials, and events listed. The bar taps are made of wood (of coarse) and all numbered. There is a huge outdoor seating area. Which on this beautiful day is perfect. Though, there is no shade what so ever in the beer garden, I can't imagine that will be a happening spot wants the summer comes along (unless they put some kind of shade in). Anyway, still a great place to chill and relax with a beer and good food.

Service at the bar was quick and friendly. He told us the lunch special, and was very knowledgeable on the beers available, and what had been blown. The food is excellent. All house made sausages, and the lunch special is hard to beat. One of their traditional sausages, a side, and a Texas pint for $8. That is a very good deal. When not on special, I can see this a bit more pricey, but still very reasonable. Andouille sausage, kaloche bun, and braised greens. For the sausage and bun, they come with house recommendations which is great. Or you can choose your own. The sausage itself was excellent. I thought the greens were very good, though not great. I had some German potato salad as well, which was excellent. Very flavorful, with a good vinegary kick. My buddies Italian sausage look great as well.

On to the beer! Tons of taps. Right at 100, which is ridiculous. Also a cask, that happened to be out. Austin breweries are very well represented, as well is the rest of the state. Close to 30 plus Texas taps. I saw some Firestone Walker on as well. Really an excellent selection all around. I enjoyed a Hops & Grain Alt. I can't imagine how this place turns over taps in a timely manner. Still, I can't really knock them cause what I had was very fresh.

Yep, this is a good place. In my short visit, this has already become one of my favorite beer bars in Austin. Not nearly as tiresome to navigate as Draught House, with just as good, if not better, selection as them or Gman. Not to mention the awesome food. I look forward to visiting again when I get a chance.

i don't like talking down about places or businesses so i won't. i will just say that the situation was so bad that i got my food for free and a 20 dollar gift card.i had high hopes for this place but unfortunately sometimes things don't always work out.
