The collection on tap is top notch, only outdone by the creative presentation. Their matrix makes it really easy for you to focus in on the style you like, and that's pretty useful since its likely they have a number of beers on tap that you haven't tried before.

Service is outstanding; really knowledgeable staff that is passionate about craft beer. A++

This was the perfect place for me. Hard to think of two things more enjoyable than coffee and beer. Great tap selection and best prices I found in Austin. Bartenders were very friendly and offered samples of other beers without me asking. Atmosphere was very interesting and friendly. This felt like a place I could go day after day and enjoy. Will definitely visit again if I'm ever in Austin.

I have been a fan of Wright Bros. Brew & Brew since they opened up. Its a strange mixture of coffee house and Beer bar. But it works. Their beer selection is awesome, I think around 40 rotating taps. They are always pushing to have the latest releases on tap, and seem to get rare releases (especially from the local breweries like Hops&Grain, Austin Beerworks, Founders, etc...) with regularity. Then their is the Brew & Brew, where they serve you a nice dark stout along with a hard shot of expresso. The chemical reaction in the body is nothing short of pure joy. Price-wise, I would say they are about average.

The staff is always a joy to talk to. I haven't been there once and not gotten into a great conversation about beer or whatnot with the bartenders and surrounding patrons. I am sure they have their off days, but I haven't been there yet for one. Grady the co-owner is just one of the nicest guys you can meet.

The only weak point is their food selection. The quality is there, it just small portions and not too much to choose from.

Like Cuvee Coffee, I love this place for having both beer and coffee available. The tap selection here is pretty comprehensive and they do a good job of keeping things rotating and offering good stuff.

The coffee side is serious business, as these guys come off a bit hoity-toity with their coffee ways, however, they make some serious coffee, so can't hate too much.

This coffee and beer bar has a comfortable, but minimalist vibe going on. Long bar towards the back, a few high top tables scattered inside, and outside a small deck. Order at the register, or sit at the bar, and somebody will come to greet you.

A handful of coffee options, some small bites to eat, and about 40 beer taps. The coffee seemed well made and maintained, but I am far from an expert on that. The beer list is very good though. Anything from the locals like Live Oak and Austin Beer Works. To some harder to get stuff like Firestone Walker Double DBA, and Founder's Devil Dancer.

After a slow start, the bartender was very attentive. I order a cheese plate for a snack, and it was very good. An aged Irish White Cheddar with freshly baked bread. A great snack. They have some smaller sandwiches as well.

A low key spot, that has good beer, good coffee, and good snacks. You don't need much more.
