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.

I really like coming here, lets get that out of the way. It's a near perfect spot for me even though its a drive during hockey season because of all the games they show, I make fast friends with the long table seating and I like that even though its counter service they had the forethought to split the beer and food lines.

The house beers aren't really that special but I like the experimental batches a lot. Its fun to see what they do, the seasonal beers are good too Ramming Speed being a personal favorite of mine. I like that they let you do growler fills as well.

I'm giving service a pass because its all counter service and the staff is always quick to clean up an empty glass.

Selection is pretty awesome, at least 40 guest beers with all the house to compete with and they always keep the selection varied, I never come in saying the tap list needs change. What they lack in sheer tap volume is made up in turnover

The food is good, it's pizza and pizza related things. I've had better pizza in Austin but Pinthouse is in no way bad.

Overall I like to come here, Its a great mix of 3 things I love, Hockey, Pizza and great beers.

This place is worth seeking out. But after about 5pm until around 8pm it's fully of kids. When I go to a bar/brewpub to eat and drink alcohol the last thing I want is a bunch of kids around. They are always bumping you and running around. Ive spilt a pint or two because of this. I had not gone to pint house a few times because of the time frame I was wanting a beer fell in to these hours.

That being said, the beer selection is great. their house brews are great as well. The pizza and the salads are descent. CANNOT BELIEVE one of the toppings is not beef. COME ON MAN!

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.
