My first stop on Rainey street. It was much larger than I was anticipating, I went inside to the bar since the back patio area was very full upon my arrival. Atmosphere was a bit stale inside but out in the courtyard it was really hopping. Quality was very high across the board, the space inside and out were top notch and the food and beer were as well. Service was good overall, had to wait for some of my beers but overall not bad. They have some of the most hipster people working for them that I have ever come across. Selection was top notch, over 100 taps from all over the country but the main focus remains on Texas beers which is always nice. I had plans to eat a larger meal later in the night so I only got an appetizer, the fried cheese curds, which were awesome. Prices were a bit high for my tastes but nothing over the top. Overall an awesome beer bar / restaurant in an amazing area, I will definitely return next time I am in the area.

Interesting place as there is a large outdoor picnic area that was packed, and inside the bar and few picnic tables were empty, so I opted for the bar. The bar is small, wood topped, and can seat about 8 - 10 folks. Hog heads line the walls. The wall of taps is impressive, and labels above the taps each listed a number and the beer. The bartenders really understood the offerings and styles. So with 101 taps, what to choose ? They nicely broke the beer labels down by style making it easy.

The sausages were superb. The beer just as superb. Service was prompt, knowledgable and friendly. What else can you ask for ? This is a must stop for anyone coming to Austin.

I did not have any food. 101 taps even though a couple are taken by wine, cider, coffee, and kombucha. Very strong. If you are coming to Texas for beer, this is a wonderful place to start. Best local stuff you can find in theses parts. Definitely surprised by a few things on the list.
