Went for a screening of brewmasters, it's a pretty cool place.

The atmosphere is nice, it's a theatre like the other Alamo drafthouses but this one has a more intimate feel to it because it's smaller.

Quality seemed good, I mean the place looks nice and all the food I saw looked good.

Not gonna lie the service kinda sucked, it took forever to get my beer and it seemed even longer because I was looking forward to getting the bitches brew on tap all week! After I got my beer I really didn't want to deal with the service again.

Selection was great, they had 10 or 15 good taps and had Midas touch and bitches brew on tap for the night which I thought was pretty awesome. They also have some of the local breweries on tap like (512) and live oak.

I didn't have any of the food but I know the drafthouse's menu pretty well so I assume the foods good but after the service I had you never know...

I would go back because it's an Alamo drafthouse but only for the events and the beer selection.

A great little movie theater right on 6th street...the lady and I went looking for some good beer and after a few strike-outs in some college-centric pubs, we were pleasantly surprised by this theater---and Zack & Miri Make a Porno was playing! Score!

The tap list wasn't extensive, and there were no bottles (that I took notice of) but you could tell the selection had been carefully thought out. Lagunitas IPA, Stone AB, Independence Amber, LiveOak Hefeweizen & Big Bark Amber (both quite tasty), plus 7 or 8 others.

The service is interesting. A thin table in front of each row is equipped with pencils & paper, and the menus are under the table with small lights for unobtrusive reading. The waitstaff come around and pick up your orders promptly. I didn't rate the food, because all we had were a basket of fries, but the pizzas looked and smelled pretty good. Movie tickets were on the pricier side, as were the beers, but all in all a fun experience that I'll likely be hitting up again soon. It's too bad they only show one movie at a time.
