With a mix of college age kids, 20's and 30's techie types and over-the-hill hipsters, this place, upon first glance, looks a bit of a trendy enclave for the cool folks, but don't judge a book by its cover because the atmosphere is quite welcoming and the staff I encountered were knowledgeable and eager to chat about beer, especially if you show an interest in the house brews.

The tap list is nothing to go bonkers over, but it's strong and should satisfy most beer geeks, unless you're looking for the rare stuff (they don't sell bottles). The house brew IPA I had was tasty and a fine start to the evening. I followed that up with a Sculpin IPA and topped it all off with a Gulden Drak (served properly), along with the "supreme" pizza which was right-on. I noticed a couple of experimental house beers that looked promising, but didn't have time to try any of them. Maybe next time.

There's plenty of picnic-style/communal seating here, and while it was pretty packed, I didn't have a hard time finding a place to squeeze in. There are a few picnic table outside as well if you want to brave the Texas heat. Being that the floor is open it can be a bit noisy at times, but who can fault people for chatting it up over good beer and pizza.

A good place to start a night of Austin pub-hopping, and I will definitely return here to see what's being offered the next time I"m in town.

Great pizza joint with excellent beers on tap, this place gets crowed quickly but the food and beer make up for it

seemingly popular joint on burnet in austin. reasonably priced pizza (4.75-7.50 for a 10"), snacks and brews made in house and from all over. staff offers tastes of anything you would like, and i had the impression everyone working is passionate about beer. the layout reminds me of pizza ports, with picnic bench seating in the dining room and limited space at the bar. they offer happy hour from 5-6 and 9-10 during the week. pints of most beers are $5 during regular hours, and house beers are $2 off during hh.

This place is a win win for both pizza fans and beer fans. The house Man O War IPA hits the spot and the pizza is delicious. I highly recommend the lunch special...small pizza, salad (greens salad was pretty kick butt) and a beer for around 12 bucks. Very hard to top that.

I really like the family style bench seating. Place seemed pretty wide open. Of course, I was here around 3 pm. I'm assuming it gets packed after 5 pm. Every staff member I talked to was super friendly.

Just a very inviting place with very tasty house beers and a nice selection of guest beers. Good variety too.

I will certainly be back to try other pizzas and other house beers.

Best pizza & beer combination in town. Think Pizza Port, but upscale and without all those damn kids. Great beer selection as well as some fine house brews. I've had about half a dozen different pizzas and each one has been excellent. The Burnett location means that parking shouldn't be a worry, although it can get crowded in the evenings. Great place to come for lunch.

I figured I've been here enough now to review it. Great family friendly environment with good pizza and excellent beer. Great selection of craft only, but the hidden jems are in the brewed beers. Joe Mohr field is a genius, and Jacob too. There is always an experimental beer on tap, a cask brew and the mainstays. Everything from new ipas, to beers dry hopped with cereal to barrel aged milk stouts. Keep up the good work.

Pinthouse Pizza is a fantastic brewpub with some good pizzas to boot. The mainstay beers here are all fantastic, and they make some excellent IPAs and Stouts in particular. They've got an ever rotating lineup of new beers coming through here, weekly casks, barrel aged beers, special beer release events, and 40+ guest drafts from fantastic breweries.

The atmosphere is bright, open, and inviting and its just an awesome neighborhood hangout that is almost always packed. Definitely one of my favorite spots in town and one that I'd recommend to anybody coming into Austin.

Great selection of pizza as well as around 40 or so taps. Regular in house beers are all great but what really makes this place stand out are the pilot ships and explorations. They are constantly doing variations on the standard beers with additional ingredients. Most are really good.
