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. (1,761 characters)

V = The staff is pretty chill and relaxed, even when it is slammed. Sports or good movies is on the TVs at all times. Everyone there is friendly. Communal seating with the picnic tables.

Q = The food is alway fresh. The house beers are amazing and they keep the tap lines well maintenanced for the guest beers as well as their own.

S = Communal seating. Have to order the food at the counter, or a little known fact you can order food and beer at the bar. Staff will answer any questions you have on beer or pizza. Don't hope to be in and out quickly unless it is an off hour.

S = Has 6 main stays and then more seasonals and experimentals on tap. Seems like that always have at least 10 house beers on tap whenever I go. i have seen close to 30 house beers before on tap. They have a total of 40 taps plus 4 nitros. What ever else is open is filled by the latest seasonals from amazing breweries all over the nation.

F = Fresh, local ingredients make for awesome pizzas. What else is better than pizza and beer. (1,016 characters)

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. (417 characters)

Great pizza joint with excellent beers on tap, this place gets crowed quickly but the food and beer make up for it (114 characters)
