Smaller place than what I imagined. Still has a good vibe. Was busy, had games and live music. Small bar but has good selection. Their beers are usually good quality with a wider variety of styles.

I went to the brewery on my birthday last year during SXSW; to start, the bewery is a warehouse perpendicular to a busy road, off a not well-maintained road, with no where to park, there were two bands playing; one in the barrel room, the other in the parking lot. It was loud but I was able to move around inside to the adjacent room w/ a dart board and ping pong table. They have two food trucks outside and picnic tables to sit at with washers and other Texas backyard games.

That day I did the brew tour, which was underwhelming, but I did get to meet the founder and owner, Scott Hovey and asked him what his favorite brew at that time was (Traveler IPA, now Travelin' Man) .

As far as the tasting room experience goes- you can get 6 tokens when you arrive for $15, which amounts to six half-pours of their regular brews, or 3 special/high ABV brews. I am a fan of their regularly crafted items, but I was disappointed that there was only one special available that day, and it was just one of their other beers with hibiscus added to it.

Overall their beer is my favorite in Austin but I was underwhelmed with the brewery experience.

Nice little setup with a few different ways to entertain yourself while trying some great beers. There was some music and they have a wall with some art to check out to go along with Foosball table... staff was very friendly, and no one seemed to mind my little kid running around like a maniac.

Variety is somewhat lacking, but this is what they make and its good stuff. Plus, there are a couple of seasonal/rotating options. Can't complain.
