A big place in the Rainey restaurant area. 100 taps is more than enough and flights are available. Unfortunately listed Abyss was run out (so lists may be a bit out of date). Very friendly service although more like overfriendly for tourists style. One of the places to visit in Austin city centre. Didnít eat.
We didnít go in, so I only know whatís outside. Big patio with live music. Over 100 taps and flights of 4 available. Really nice selection of Texan craft beers available. Amazingly tasty sausages. Friendly and prompt service. What to ask more?
Visited later evening on a Wednesday. Located on the busy Rainey Street, divided into three separate sections. Decent sized bar, an enclosed patio and a huge beer garden. All throughout the seating is communal picnic tables. The outdoor patio featured a stage, but no music this night. Beer selection is huge, 101 beers are organized by taste profile, and are well chosen for such a huge list. There were probably 60 beers on the list I had a big interest in drinking. Good service, friendly vibe. Food smelled really good and my Uber driver recommend I eat there next time. Another great spot to hang out and have a beer.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Sausages and beer. Thatíll do nicely. Seriously, though, itís 100 taps with a definite local bias, arranged sensibly. The foodís good but thematically limited, the draft beer is reasonable (the bottles are not -- thus the slightly lower value rating), and our server Brett was amazing. My wife and I had a damned good time, despite being older than most of the tattooed hipsters. Weíre going back. Enough said.
I visited this place twice, while I was in Austin. The only one I visited twice. This is a large space in the mold of a German beer hall. Lots of outdoor picnic tables with a stage for live music. The menu is really nice with a large variety of sausages and sides like poutine. They have 104 taps, and they seemed to rotate pretty good the couple of visits I made (~5/day). The bartenders were absolutely top notch. Not only did they know beer, but they were really funny. They enjoyed their work, which made this place feel homey. Bathrooms were also clean. The favorite place I went to in town.
Cool spot. Itís lovely restaurant/biergarten with some Texan flourishes. I sat at the bar during lunchtime and received friendly, attentive service. The number of taps is pretty dizzying. Frankly, 100 feels like too much. But nothing I tried was in bad shape, so maybe they get the turnover needed to maintain quality. Plenty of stuff from Texas was available alongside things from Founders etc. As expected, the food centers around different presentations of sausage. The bangers and mash I tried was pretty good. Overall, definitely a good option for visitors.
Great sausage, and a very good selection of beers. My only gripe is that while they have flights, theyíll basically refuse to tell you what will be in your flight when you place your order, which was very offputting.
