All home pulls, but a solid choice of styles across the spectrum. Beer was good, staff was helpful, customers were easygoing. Although the brewery did not serve food, there was a killer food truck parked just outside the door (Barley Swine on the day I was there), so I gather there is usually something to eat there. I had fun.

Interesting setup in an interesting location. Very industrial feel located in repurposed space. They can’t sell beer here, but they can sell you the glass and give away the beer. One of the best lagers I’ve ever enjoyed, but it was real hit and miss.

Comments: Tucked away with an unmarked back entrance in a warehouse lot, H&G is easy to miss. Once inside, there is a frolicking good time with singing, board games, and enthusiastic staff. The beer on tap is very good with their 4 core brands and 4 specials. Their special edition pilsner was sublime. The prices here are super cheap: you buy something like $8 or less for a souvenir half nonic pint glass with their logo and then get tickets for at least x4 6oz pours of whatever you want. Best deal in town and possibly the best beer brewed in the city. Highly recommended.

Warehouse with an industrial feel to it. Big long community tables with some seating out back as well. The staff was pretty friendly and helped me verify some beers in the data base. While we are talking about the beer, I feel like they are above average and outshine a lot of the other breweries around the Austin area. Oh and another great thing… the A/C was blasting, thank the good Lord!

I was driving around this industrial complex looking for Hops and Grain when I saw a man with a beard down to his stomach, wearing aviators, carrying a messenger bag ride a bicycle past me. I figured I should go to his origin. Until the laws change in Texas, visiting a brewery’s tasting room and drinking some pints is not as common as it should be. Hops and Grain was one of the few that I could visit on a Saturday and indulge. They’ve got a nice outdoor patio with a food truck, spacious tasting room on the inside and they offer frequent tours of the brewhouse. The place was jumping on my visit. Due to the outdated law, you have to "purchase a glass" which will get you three pints. This is for $10, an absolute steal. When the law changes, I assume the price will go up a little bit. I mean, it should, in all sense. I enjoyed the beers I had. I was really impressed with Zoe. What a fantastic pale lager. I would definitely come back if I were ever in Austin again.

Set in an industrial complex. No sign near door to tasting room so wasn’t sure, at first. Knocked on door as we were first to arrive at noon on Saturday. Bought a glass and tried some samples they poured. Loved the coffee porter and the Greenhouse IPA. Greenhouse IPA #8 was good, but not as good as last month, which was spectacular. Rows of wooden picnic tables to sit at. Another positive was that it was air conditioned room, which was much appreciated considering the hot temps outside. Will be back, especially since their Greenhouse IPAs are so hard to find elsewhere.

Typical glass and beers for $10 set up. Really cool staff. Tour is comprehensive. Taproom beers aren’t available anywhere else. Good time.

Just east of downtown. Confusing entrannce, took me a while to figure out that you have to enter through unmarked doors that look abandoned, just to the left of the Mettle restaurant. The tasting room has a bunch of taps, picnic tables, tons of board games, and a food truck with tasty sandwiches. The staff is so entertaining they should charge a cover. The usual Texas legal bs means that it costs you ten bucks to get three pints, or six generous half pours. Beers were very tasty and very creative. It was interesting to see young students and hispters putting their devices down for a while and playing the old school games - quote of the day: "Dude, I was too stoned to plat CandyLand last time, but I’m good to go today." How could anyone be too stoned to play CandyLand?

Cool brewery stop. Barrels line the tasting room, and a nice selection of house beers. Beer quality was solid to quite good. Still doing the buy a glass and get pours type of thing. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very hard to find the entrance.
