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.

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.
