Cool vibe and interior. Parking was validated in the apartment parking lot next door. Didnít try the food. Got a taster of all the beers. I have had some previously and really liked them (a few years ago), on this trip several were flawed with some sort of malt based DMS/tannin. Slightly disappointing. Prices were reasonable.

Despite being a brewpub, and the brewery is clearly visible, this doesnít feel like just that. Itís a typical (in the good sense) American restaurant that happens to brew their own beers. Does that make sense? In any way, itís easy too find and the parking system works well. What you get is a place where many smaller batch brews (I think) are offered by can (!) and obviously on tap. 10 were available at the time I visited, plus 3 guest taps which went listed mine brews ate decent but it can differ quite heavily between passable and very tasty. Server was very relaxed and friendly and offered me a chat, even while he was busy cleaning tap lines. The food was okay but very simple. It tries to be everything (brewery, restaurant, bar) and while being good in most, it doesnít excel in any. No problem, itís nice as it is.

Visited October 2011.

Stopped in mostly for some BBQ and house beers but found some cool guest beers as well as a bottle of some Pabst-made garbage that I hadnít tried before. The service was slow and didnít say much at first but after a few stops he was friendly enough. The food was pretty good. Iím finding that TX doesnít offer up as much BBQ as I originally thought, but this is a worthy stop. The house beers are all decent at least. The best were the Axe Handle Pale Ale and the Psycho Keller pils. Worst were the Hill Country Organic Amber and the Haystack Hefe, not that they were bad, just the least good. Siting outside under the big tree was the right choice I think as the weather was nice and it was loud inside. Cool place over all.

7 beers on tap (Saison, Summer Ale, IPA, Helles, ESB, Red Ale and Pale Ale). Good beers actually. Quiet on a Sunday evening. Good BBQ food. Good service. Free parking in a garage. Big patio.

Solid beers. Huge, excellent smoked chicken wings. Great brisket and smoked turkey breast. Laid back, relaxing atmosphere outside. Itís like hanging out in someoneís backyard. Fast, friendly, attentive service.The indoor area is very homey as well. Lots of wood. TVs inside. Only one small TV outside at the small bar area.

The original location at Barton Springs. This one is smaller than the one on Lake Travis, but still has a parking garage and plenty of seats. Also has live music several times a week. They typically have 6-8 house beers on tap with about the same amount of guest taps - typically reserved for other Austin-area breweries. I may be in the minority but I really like the food, especially the brisket reuben and the smoked chicken wings. A must stop everytime I am in Austin.

Visited during RBWG 2012. A nice brewpub with a sort of rustic feel to it, and it is a bbq place after all.

Our waiters were prompt and friendly and the brewing staff were hilarious, cool people who gave us a really good tour of the place.

I didnít notice the selection beyond their own beers, which was a plentiful list for a brewpub. The beers were stellar, too!

The food was pretty tasty, but I wasnít blown away.

The beer prices are reasonable, but I thought the food was a touch pricey for what it is and what you get.

Overall, Iíd call this a must-stop place. They had some of the best brewpub/brewery beers I had during all of RBWG. Tasty!
