A great new beer bar that opened opened a few weeks ago. Just down the street from Bangers, and all the seemingly new places on this street. Well at least, I don't remember this part being so busy in years past. Take that with a grain of salt, beside two weeks ago, and now this week, it has been years since I was in Austin...

Anyway, a small area out front, a tiny wood bar in front of the tap wall. Some couches, and a wide open area to mingle inside. Out back is a great patio that will have some food trucks. The service is very friendly, and knowledgeable. Also fun to talk to. I remember one guy that use to work at the Gingerman in Houston, awesome.

I love the beer selection. 100% Texas breweries. 50 taps, plus two casks. That might be the most Texas beers available at one time anywhere in the state. That is saying something. Rogness, Real Ale, Austin Beer Works, Saint Arnold, 512, Jester King, and on and on...The quality is pretty damn good as well. The two casks are in great condition, Real Ale Blonde Barleywine, and 512 Black IPA.

Austin has always had a great beer culture. Though recently, there have been a mass of excellent beer bars opening up. This is one of them.

This is a small little place that has plenty of outdoor seating. The bar only had 4 stools, and a few hi-tops were inside, but it was mostly standing room space. Lots of wood and black wallpaper. Nice wooden decoration of state of Texas hangs from the ceiling. A large blackboard lists the beers on draft. A bottle and souvenir shop is in a room off the back of the bar.

Only Texas beers are served here which is an interesting concept. The bartenders are some of the most beer knowledgable folks I have experienced across the country. Plenty of people walked in not understanding the beers and the bartenders walked through a bunch of questions followed by a complete decription of the beer - which usually meant the customer knew what he was getting and appreciated the help.

The beers were all very good, and were a bit more of a unique offerings than other bars in Austin. Glasses were of correct style and were each checked for cleanliness before filling. These are the small things that show high quality of the place.

In my short 3 day visit of Austin, this was by far the best bar for service, quality, and beer offerings. This is a must visit by anyone coming to town. Simply outstanding.

Great list of beers. Nice space. Very hippie. I had a Imperium, St. Arnold Fresh Hop and Highlander. 2 of the 3 were recommended and were great. I would recommend for the list and staff recommendations. Nice wood plank tables outside.

Love this place great beer selection, however I really wish it wasn't located on Rainey St (hipster hell). I would have given a 5 otherwise.
