The brewery is unreal. Huge plot of land they are on (we walked back pretty far) with disc golf baskets. Awesome beer and a great flight.

Visited on a Thursday early afternoon as I was headed to the airport. Almost empty.

V - A nice open space both in and out. Clean and bright inside. 4

Q - Clean and proper glassware. Love it for the traditional German styles. Can't beat the freshness that comes from get beer on tap at the brewery. 4.5

S - Fantastic, but I was the only one in the place. 4

Sel - Maybe the only negative. A bit narrow as Live Oak brews fit a certain niche that does not satisfy everyone. But if you like the styles they make (and I believe that do a wonderful job with those styles) then you will love their selection. 4

Great tap room in South Austin...inside is great and outside is kind of like Jester King but on smaller scale. Lots of trees, shade and picnic tables.

The vibe has potential. It feels sort of "out in the country" yet is right by the airport. They can work with this but haven't quite nailed it yet (they're new). Going for a mini JK vibe it seems. As for quality, they're one of the best lager breweries in the country. Full stop. The quality is superlative. Don't confuse quality for making giant barrel aged stouts or DIPAs. Everyone is exceedingly friendly and willing to chat. Great service. As for selection, I suppose one could say "but I like hops" or "but I like stouts" and be disappointed. But, for what they do, the variety is great. When I went they had the normal hefe and pilz, of course, but an amber lager, a weizenbock, a dunkelweizen, a lichtenhainer, a schwarzbier, a smoked version of the schwarz, a grodiziskie, a berliner weisse, and perhaps a few others. That's a baller selection IMHO. Hope they continue to expand the offerings!
