Stopped in during RBWG 2012. It was a well-lit, nice looking place. Clean cut and reminds of a movie theater, as it should. Around the times movies were starting, the lobby would get pretty busy and thereíd be kids all around. Interesting concept next to a bar.
My bartenders were always prompt, had an idea of what was on tap, and were very friendly.
A pretty solid selection of brews, and their brews were pretty solid as well.
I didnít try any food while I was there.
The prices on the brews all seemed average.
Overall, this is a definite stop if youíre in the Round Rock/Austin area. Good brews and an interesting concept.
Visited late afternoon on a Thursday. Movie theater in a shopping center, large parking lot as expected. As you enter, relatively small and simple lobby with Movie tickets, food and snacks straight ahead with the decent sized bar to the right. Bar is bigger, about 15 seats and a couple of bar tables nearby. Draft selection was 6 regular house, 6 house specials in a range of styles. The stout I had was good. Additionally, 38 well chosen guests are available. The bartender was super cool, spent a lot of time explaining the beers and the Flix story. Pours available are pints, pitchers and growlers to go. The brew system is visible in front window. My pint was only $3.25,must have been happy hour - normal price listed was $4.50, either way great deal for a movie theater. RIP Walt, we still miss you.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
A cinema slash brewpub? I had to visit that. And frankly, if it wasnít for the clearly-visible-from-the-outside brewhouse, I would jus tmistake it as a general cinema with recent releases. However, the large amount of taps already hints at the service aspect. In itís way this is unique, but even as a bar its pretty good, with a great selection of local and national beers, with good brewhouse specials and a very friendly and caring bar tender to help you out. I only tried the saison and only sour and they were great. The Saison de Walt is really well made, very surprised about that one. The food was surprisingly tasty too and reasonably priced. The entrance is a bit clinical, they can work on that. Looking to catch a movie in Austin? There is only one place to go!
Very interesting place, with no equivalent to it in CA. Easy parking (sort of mall parking type feel. Large entry lobby with a bar and a few tables. Tiny little PUB brewhouse. Friendly people and a great selection of both house beers and a large selection of guest taps. Iím sad I never made it out while Walt was still in charge.
Even though I have never seen a movie here, this is one of my favorite places in the Austin area. Located right off I-35, there is no reason not to stop here on your way in or out of town. 10 house beers are on tap at most/all times and there is a great guest tap selection of local and non-local craft beers. They fill growlers of their house beers, not sure about the guest taps. Beers range from average to very good, with a wide range of beers including sours and barrel aged beers. This is the place that Walt started, so go by and try the Saison de Walt (saison with brett). You wonít be disappointed.
Stopped in right as they opened. My bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. the beers were of high quality and i felt quite comfortable. I had talked to Walt before heading over and i know that my visit was so enjoyable because of what he did at Flix. Stop in here and raise a glass to Walt.
Stopped by for the Cask Ale festival. An interesting concept of movie theatre/brewery but think they do a great job. The bar had nice combination of guest taps and house beers. Didnít try the food on my visit. Prices were nice considering it was a movie theatre. I would love to stop by for a feature sometime but worth a stop if in the area.
Been there twice now and both times on a New Years. I love being able to watch first run movies, having a nice dinner, and enjoying fresh brews. There are no places like this near my house. The beers I have had are pretty much average, though. I did not expect a lot out of the wit I had last night but did expect more from the Funk series beer. Still, next time in this area I willbe back.
Itís a movie theater showing first run films, offers good food and craft beer in a comfortable setting while watching a new release. Whatís not to like. I have no idea what score to give the place because Iíve never been to any establishment that is anything even resembling Flix. I have no other point of comparison. The guest taps and house brews are solid if not spectacular. Walt gave Wendy and me a detailed tour of the entire facility, including the brewing set up that is right next door. If youíre going to the place just for the craft beer experience and no movie, itís not the first place I would choose as the drinking/waiting area is large and loud. However, if youíre planning on seeing a movie and enjoy drinking solid craft beer and eating good food while watching a first run flick? Again, whatís not to like?
This is also a movie theater besides a micro- brewery, so the bar ambiance, in my opinion, isnít great. They do have ample seating - tables and chairs and a long bar. Where they excell is their selection. There are 42 taps ( including 5 or so of their own brews) and around 30 brands in bottles. I was ae to get Berlin- Weiss and a Scottish ale there.I hadnít found them any place else in the area! Thanks Flix brewers.
Flix is a brewery inside a movie theater. Unfortunately, you feel like you are in a tacky movie theater lobby here. Other than the sterile ambience, Flix is a good idea. Their house beers are quality and they have plenty of local and national micro brews. Canít beat their 3 dollar house beers and their food is OK and cheap. If I lived in Round Rock, I wouldnít go anywhere else to see a movie.
