Excellent rock and roll biergarten vibe outside along the stream that rolls past it. Twenty five taps of great draft beer around the country and a few Texas brews too. Full service bar. Good food and a wonderful bakery upstairs. A place where you could easily enjoy the afternoon drinking and eating.

Good place to grab some snacks and a decent beer. Always worth dropping in to see what's on tap. Usually find something worthwhile and the prices are pretty attractive. It's not far from Banger's and Craft Pride and it's on the quiet side of 6th, so if you're nearby, you might as well drop in.

Walking in you see the bake shop, but you need to head downstairs to get to the bar area. The bar area is a bit tight in an area off the dining table area. The bar seats about 10, and all draft lines are hovering above the bar which was unique. The walls are green and white painted brick with a red top bar. There was an outdoor ping pong table too.

Beerwise they had over 30 beers on draft with a bunch of different styles from many local Texas and national breweries. Beers were served in appropriate glasses. I had two beers and both were fresh and served promptly with a smile. Defintely a must stop on any Austin trip, as you may find a beer or two other places may not have on draft.

Very impressive list, including things I am surprised to see in their home markets. I had The Good, The Bad, The Unidragon, and Scots Gone Wild. Both were excellent. Service was top notch. Had the pretzel and standard brat. Brat was simple but delicious. Maybe 30 or so taps that were all better than what you get at most local places.

Stopped in for lunch with my wife & son while visiting Austin. It's one of my son's favorite restaurants, not far from where he works. It's located down at the end of 6th Street near I-35. The bakery is at street level, and the restaurant is a flight below. Despite being below street level, the restaurant faces out to a patio, and a small park that borders the Red River (although this is an urban river in that it looks more like a canal). The beer selection is outstanding here, with a lot of great local breweries featured. I had an Austin Beerworks Black Thunder, which was a perfect match for my bratwurst & sauerkraut, both made on the premise, along with the mustard. My wife had a duck sausage on a pretzel bun, which she devoured. My son had the home made bologna sandwich, which he loves; I tried it, and it was excellent! We didn't try any of the baked goods, but my son swears they are the best in Austin.

I highly recommend this spot for the food, the beer, and the atmosphere..

Stopped in here today while in town. Did not eat, but the wife and I had a drink. Interesting spot, somewhat unique people, with a bakery upstairs. Very solid tap list, from which I grabbed a glass of BA Old Rasputin XV. Pretty excited this was on tap. A selection of bottles and some Texas brews, wine, and a great whiskey selection that included Pappy 10, 15, and 20 year bourbon (if you’re willing to shell out $85 a glass). Good service but also a little pricey ($16 for an 8 oz pour of BA Old Raspy). Neat spot though.

Walking into the bakery, you're greeted by the delicious smell of fresh baked bread and pastries. On the way out, you're probably going to want to grab a croissant.

Going downstairs, you're greeted by a bar on the right and tables to the left. The beer selection is always changing and always on a few chalkboards around the place. The beer selection is amazing. Not the largest in the city, but there are always new things to try from all over the country (and some internationals).

The food is excellent. Having eaten nearly the entire menu, I'd say that the pretzel (with beer cheese), the sausages (which change regularly), and the pastrami sandwich.

All told, this is a spot that is absolutely worth checking out!

Easy Tiger is a downstairs bar with an outdoor beer garden. While the garden is picnic tables on a concrete pd, it is pleasant and quiet change from the noise and hustle of only one block away 6th street.

Excellent beer list, tonight they had N'Ice Chouffe, Delirium Noel, North Coast Grand Cru, Left Hand Milk Stout Seduction and others on their 35ish tap list.

Their Bakery upstairs seems only lightly coupled with the menu downstairs. Limited menu consisting mostly of sausages, and cheese.

I like the outside near Waller Creek, the people friendly, and it has a full bar.
