I ended up at Hopfields chasing a beer I tasted at Independence brewery and I'm so glad I did. One of my favorite beer pubs in Austin, especially thanks to their attention to IPAs. Every time I'm there I get to taste something new and I love it. The food is very good too. Order some burgers and fries with your beer; you won't regret it.

Great place with a great beer selection, with lots of IPAs., they even have a good bottle selection with several Jester King beers in stock. Nice sized bar with very informed, polite bartenders who actually offer you samples without having to ask. No beer snobs here.

It's located in the old Half Price Books building on Guadalupe and the did a great job fleshing out their space in it. Nice personal little rooms throughout that would be great for a date. If it were only in South Austin, I'd be there just about every day.

The vibe is the only thing working against this place. It's in a strip center and you cant really find it but that kinda adds to it. Like, "how can a place this great look/be located like this?"

Beer selection is great, they even have Tokyo from Brew Dog. Didn't have the balls to try it as it was a Wednesday but I will be back. You better believe that!

Food and service was stellar. Everyone working there was super nice/chill and they know their beer.
My girlfriend and I split the muscles + frites and the seared lamb on top of a bed of elotes (Mexican corn). To quote my buddy Guy Fieri, the food was "gangster". I had muscles in Belgian a couple of months ago...these were leaps and bounds better. The lamb was really delicious too. If you like it rare, you will love it.

Definitely take a beer lover here if you are looking for a place to go.

I came here for the first time when I saw that they had Prairie Bomb! on tap and was excited to try it. I was even more pleased to see that they offer 1/2 pours at 1/2 price which was great because there were tons of beers that I wanted to try.
The beer list is pretty expansive and they've got 50 or so + high quality craft beers on tap. As if that weren't enough, the food was absolutely fantastic. Seriously one of the best burgers I've even had in my life with the most tender and flavorful beef. I came back and had it again and it was equally as delicious and well cooked.
Another awesome spot in town and with reasonable prices I thought, for the quality.

Hopfields provides a comfortable space that's unfortunately close to the University. The interior is cool and inviting with picnic benches in the front of the house and several room like spaces toward the back. When the weather permits, there's also sun shaded outdoor seating. Due to it's proximity to UT, the best time to go is during lunch or between long sessions. This is not to say it won't be crowded and loud during this time. My most recent visit was on a Friday after the Spring session. At 4:30 it was starting to fill and by 6:30 it was hard to have a conversation at the front of the house. This shouldn't dissuade you from going, though. The beer selection, while not enormous, is large enough to keep you coming back on a somewhat regular basis with a nice mix of Texas and non-Texas beers. Service is good and the staff knowledgeable. The is very good, as well, with the burger being my favorite.
