I really enjoyed my time here. An excellent beer bar along with excellent house made beers as well. I walk in and the lay out is wide open, beer garden, communal style seating. Wood picnic tables, and a long bar on the left. Order beer at the bar, and there is a counter in the back to order food. If the bar is not busy, they will take food orders, though usually you have to go to the counter for food. Chill and relaxed.

The service is very friendly and personable. They mean well, but can sometimes be absent minded. No bother, a little wait is not a problem for me.

40 taps of guest beers, and one of the best selections in a city. Firestone Walker, Jester King, lots of other Austin breweries. Plus their house beers, with about 8 to choose from. You can do flights as well. Only behind Bangers, Wip In, and Draught House for selection. I particularly liked their house beers. Calma Muerta is an excellent low ABV pale ale. The two barleywines they had were excellent as well.

On to the food. I did the lunch special which is a salad, small pizza, and a pint. About $10. Not a bad deal. The house salad was excellent. Fresh spinach, cranberries, blue cheese, nuts, and house made dressing. I had the Hill Country pizza. Bacon, spinach, mushrooms, ricotta. The toppings were excellent and fresh. My problem was the crust. I am not sure, but it seemed pre made, possibly frozen crust? I might be wrong , but it just did not taste right. It reminded me of Pizza Hut crust. A shame because everything else was obviously freshly made and well prepared.

There is so much to like here. I can over look the sub par crust. Excellent house made beers and a great guest selection. Add to that a very welcoming atmosphere, and approachable service. A good spot.

Fantastic beers brewed by Mr. Mohrfeld. So many delicious beers come out of there it's hard to pick a favorite. I like that they do many different styles of beer & do them well. Their barrel aged beers are on par with all the greats, & they aren't afraid to mix up both the beers going in the barrels and the spirit barrels themselves.

They offer decent pizza, but the show stopper is the in house beer selection.

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.
