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.

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.
