With a mix of college age kids, 20's and 30's techie types and over-the-hill hipsters, this place, upon first glance, looks a bit of a trendy enclave for the cool folks, but don't judge a book by its cover because the atmosphere is quite welcoming and the staff I encountered were knowledgeable and eager to chat about beer, especially if you show an interest in the house brews.
The tap list is nothing to go bonkers over, but it's strong and should satisfy most beer geeks, unless you're looking for the rare stuff (they don't sell bottles). The house brew IPA I had was tasty and a fine start to the evening. I followed that up with a Sculpin IPA and topped it all off with a Gulden Drak (served properly), along with the "supreme" pizza which was right-on. I noticed a couple of experimental house beers that looked promising, but didn't have time to try any of them. Maybe next time.
There's plenty of picnic-style/communal seating here, and while it was pretty packed, I didn't have a hard time finding a place to squeeze in. There are a few picnic table outside as well if you want to brave the Texas heat. Being that the floor is open it can be a bit noisy at times, but who can fault people for chatting it up over good beer and pizza.
A good place to start a night of Austin pub-hopping, and I will definitely return here to see what's being offered the next time I"m in town.

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.
