Visited on. Thursday early afternoon. Not busy

I like the vibe. Open, bright and clean. Nice outdoor space. Love the aroma of a brewery making beer.

ABGB has some nice beers but still a limited selection. Maybe provide a guest tap or two.

No table service when I was there and the lady behind the bar was just a bit too casual.

a fun place to visit when you are in austin for sure, we had a great time here. they have an awesome outside area between when you park and where you enter the building, a cool space with patio furniture, picnic tables, shade trees, and a mellow vibe. inside it has a noisy beer hall vibe, with picnic tables as far as the eye can see and a long bar straight back. attention seems to be sort of directed to a rather large stage area, looks like they have some pretty serious shows in here, audio and lighting equipment all over the place, high energy in here. lots of workers though, several folks behind the bar handle the crowd well, folks line up at an ordering window but nobody waited long and our bar service never suffered, quite professional. they had a cool list of beers, a fair few of them, nothing overly ambitious on paper, but i didnt miss that. they had three or four pale lagers, you know, a czech style pils, a helles, and american lager, it seems like a lot, but it works in the texas heat, and big pours of pale lager is awesome, no complaints from me! i liked all of them pretty well, and enjoyed an apple sour as well. we had a killer salad with all kinds of interesting things on it, i dont usually think of food as refreshing, but this salad was at least as refreshing as the lagers i was crushing in here. a bit busy for intimacy here, a bit loud for serious conversation inside, and too hot to chill outside this time of year, but a brewery doing some nice beers and well worth checking out! id love to see some music here next time!

Go there only if you like drinking good beers under the shade of 200 yr plus old oak trees!

Awesome brewery with award winning beers, delicious food, and stellar live music. Spacious indoor and outdoor seating, and a separate garden area. Lots of parking. Dogs allowed in the patio area. Flights and growlers to go...did I mention great beers?! If I lived in Austin I would be here all the time.

I've only been to Austin twice, but this is one of my favorite places for four reasons:

1- the beer is good... very good! I'm a brewer and I was impressed. It's not blow-you-off-your-feet unusual or weird stuff, but it's quality solid styles that are done right. And keep in mind, they're catering to the masses, they're not making odd one-off's that they can ship all over the country, they're mainly selling beer to be consumed on the premises, and if they can get the masses to drink a beautifully balanced Saison, then more power to them!

2- the bands are good, and the venue sounds good (although I'm not sure how it would sound if it wasn't pretty full, which it always is).

3- the food is good as well. Great pizza.

4- the atmosphere is great both inside and in the parking lot (that sounds ridiculous I know, but it's true).

Solid addition to the city's beer scene. Solid beers here and amazing pizzas. Getting in and out can be a pain the butt. Huge parking area though so that's a plus. My only REAL gripe? Some of the people working here have a 'cooler than you' attitude. I prefer to have my pizza and beer without that sh*t.

Another of Austin's warehouse style breweries, although this one actually has food! Nice wide selection of food and drinks to enjoy here. This brewery even has cider available for those who do not want or like beer. Pizzas are thin crust and come in many different options. Stage for live bands on the south side of the interior as well as a nice outdoor seating area are available for when the weather is nice as well (cool and rainy when we were there so not many people outside). Somewhat dark interior and noise level is not too bad.
