Planned to see a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on Slaughter , and was recommended to this brew pub for dinner beforehand. So arrived early (around 5 pm), with plenty of time before the movie. It shares the same parking lot, so extremely convenient if you plan to see a movie afterward (I know the Drafthouse serves food and beer, but wanted to check out NXNW). See all the fermentation tanks as you walk in. Casual vibe, with a good crowd even at 5 pm. Northwest decor that would suite Seattle, which is the basis for this brewpub. Bottles were available if you choice just to buy some beer and leave. Plenty of TVs tuned into ESPN and the Golf Channel while I was there.

I had two flights, three 5 ounce beers each at $7.50 per flight. Added 1.50 for each higher abv & barrel conditioned beers. All the brews were good.The Green Menace DIPA was a stand out. Also enjoyed the Irish Red Ale, which isn't a style that you see sold that often. My grilled chicken sandwich was excellent - half a chicken breast grilled, with avocado, lettuce & tomato, along with fries.

Good service, finished in plenty of time to see the Drafthouse pre show. Definitely a place worth visiting again!

Sat outside on a perfect September night. Didn't have any food. Service was very good except she forgot my glass of water. Had not one but two different samplers (there may have been 2 or 3 repeats in the samplers out of 6 beers but there were also other beers that were not in either sampler). All of the beers were very good to excellent except one which was fair. The high quality was evident. I very much enjoyed my visit and highly recommend a stop in to all beer travelers when in the area.

A slightly upscale brewpub. Only offer their brews, which some of their one-offs are really good. Food is good, but can be on the more expensive side for brewpubs and Austin. The burger is really good.

In San Antonio NXNW would be awesome, but for Austin... nope. A surprising number of older folks just hanging out on the front patio getting wasted. The food and service were good, just kinda reminded my of a Chili's or TGIFriday.
