The restaurant was very clean and quite impressive on the inside. I was a bit nervous how their beer would taste, because it felt a little commercial for me.

Upon drinking my first beer, Jingo Pale Ale, my fears were put to rest. After finishing my first beer I decided to go big or go home with the Green Menace DIPA. This brew exceeded my expectations, tasting even better than the Jingo.

Wish I would have brought my review notebook, two worthy beers of reviewing. Oh well, will just have to go again.

Service was good, and the food was very tasty. Almost making up for the steep prices. Next visit to NXNW I will probably sit in the bar area sticking to appetizers beer.

Next time you are in northwest Austin and are craving some good food and beer I suggest you give this place a shot.

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.
