New brewer Ty has greatly improved the beers offered in 2005. There are now hops in the pale ale and some bourbon-barrel aged beers on some weekends. Look for some cask nights, too. Nice outdoor patio (covered). Nice nook to the left of the bar. The food is not real cheap, but itís fairly upscale. Now the beer exceeds it.

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.

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.

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.

The beer was very generic and bland. Food was good, but I wouldnít come back for the beer.

Very impressive building, but obviously the emphasis is on sports and yuppie-dom. Sat at the bar for lunch and the food was good. Bartender had no interest in telling me about the beers, and maybe that was because he was ashamed of them. I did sorta like one of their seasonals and asked about growlers. Sure they offer them, but the growler costs $25 and its $12 to fill it. $37 for a growler of barely above average beer? FUCK YOU! This indicates a desire by ownership to not be friendly to beer lover by making their to go beer prohibitely expensive. That is why I gave them an overall rating of 1.

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.

Beautiful equipment but the beer is just terrible -- overfined, gristy hull flavors, nothing even as interesting as a stout. A yuppie place where the fine pub grub outshines the beer.
