I've only been to this location twice. Each time I was there for some special event, so I'm not entirely sure what the regular atmosphere is like, but it seemed pretty relaxed before things started. They have a great selection, I believe they have the most taps in Austin, but I'm not sure if that is a fact or not. Their staff is knowledgeable and they have a certified cicerone working there too. I tried their salmon wrap, which was very good. Thursdays then will tap a rare beer, which is usually something that is hard to find in Texas or has been cellared. They will regularly have weeks scheduled around various events, one of the times I went there it was an event featuring hoppy beers and they had guest speakers from various breweries. It is definitely a good beer bar, but also similar to other saucers, so it's not special in those regards. I would still recommend it if you are looking for something good to eat and something good to drink.
