Visited October 2011.

FIrst stop in Austin. This place is on the edge of town right off the freeway. This is a large restaurant with a pretty good sized brewing system. Actually, the large grain silo out front makes it seem larger but the fact is that they sell all their beer in house. They had 8 house beers on tap at the time, of which some of them were better than they get credit for here. My favorites were the Py Jingo Pale and the bourbon schwartzbier. The food was alright, about average for a brew pub. They have some fancier dishes but I scrolled past that stuff. Prices were high.

Flashy building inside and out. Trying to be hip with a night club type bar and a brick and stone dining area. Iím not into the vibe at this place. The beer was well made but lacked depth. Things should be improving as the new brewer from Bitter End gets things going. Pale ale was the highlight.

I got into Austin pretty late, and was staying at a hotel nearby. Interior of the restaurant is big new and pretty nice. I sat out on the patio, as it was a beautiful May evening. Service was prompt, though a bit thin on the beer knowledge. When I visited it was a pretty straightforward "brewpub" selection of beers - I had the Wit which was the special. I also had the tri-tip pizza and it was very dull. Overall, seemed like they were sort of going through the motions.

64 = ★★ (Just ok)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Iíve had many good beers from them in the past, but I was slightly dissapointed. Completely packed parking lot on a Saturday night. 5 taps indicated on the board (turns out there were actually 7 if you asked). Two versions of the bourbon Schwarz. Beers were up to standards. Appetizer sampler was quite tasty, the entree I had was decent. Bottles to go. Not that cheap of a stop. Overall it was an okay visit.

Visited here in early December í04. Nice, stylish, polished Scandinavian-like decor with a large open hearthed fireplace. Have at least six on tap at all times with one being a rotating seasonal - was a barley wine - "Holiday Ale" when I was there. Beer is about averge for a brewpub - no real leaps or boundary stretchers here. The food is a bit pricey, but very good. Worth a visit if in Austin, but if you had to choose one - hit Bitter End instead.

Have to agree that I have been underimpressed with the beers. But I have had one or two good ones. And think that with the proximity of it being close to both where I work & live that I should try more often to see if a good one is slipped in more frequently than I suspect. And the times I've had food it has been excellent.

Eclectic food and decor...good modern bistro type feel...beer leaves a lot to be desired though...but the house beers are solid and the seasonals are pretty damn good. Parking is a bitch.

Man, this place makes some very tasty special brews, their kriek is truly killer!! .. the food is pretty good, and the location is pretty but quite out the way, thatís the only knock .. . have sometimes have bottles for say and huge growlers too ($$) .. . they make great beer here and its a nice scenic drive.. :update: but when nothing special is on, not even close to being unique...

Easy to find, stone and glass pub in northwest Austin with good food, quality beer and friendly staff, no guest taps but have 7-8 of their own and trying to fold in a lambic tap and usually a good quality higher ABV, also some bottling
