First time there was the friday night Texas BA gathering, 2006. I don't know if this was here when I lived in Austin in the 80s... it's got a feeling of age, but I never went to it back then. Lots of old dark wood: chairs and benches that are none-too-comfortable yet still just perfect for the decor. A lot of people sat outside on truck tail-gates or just hung around in the parking lot. Not much parking, unfortunately. As for service, there really wasn't any, except at the bar. No waitstaff taking orders. You have to stand in line to get anything. However, the line moved pretty quickly and they were quick to pour. Fabulous selection of beers, with about 6 locally-made beers, which they call "Homebrews": an accurate description. I tried several, and all were quirky, not very attentitive to proper style (an extremely hoppy edelweiss wheat, a very clovy/medicinal hefeweizen, a pale ale that was so resinously hoppy it smelled like pine-sol). On the other hand, last year at the craft brewer's festival, I had some excellent Belgian-style beers they brought along. I hear they rarely brew the same exact recipe twice. The commercial beers I had were fresh and tasty. All were priced reasonable.

It really suffers on food, though. There's a short list of food items the kitchen prepares (nachos, a pizza), but the kitchen closes very early. At around 8:30, we got a bowl of Goldfish crackers ("the snack the smiles back").

An interesting place to drop by: I recommend eating elsewhere before going, though.
