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.
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. Didn’t 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.
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. I’m sad I never made it out while Walt was still in charge.
Impressive space. Huge open lobby with a window into the brewing operation as well as a lengthy bar with a ton on tap. Sampled all of their brews, but had to pass on the mainstream fare in the theater. Love the concept, though.
It’s a movie theater showing first run films, offers good food and craft beer in a comfortable setting while watching a new release. What’s not to like. I have no idea what score to give the place because I’ve 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 you’re going to the place just for the craft beer experience and no movie, it’s not the first place I would choose as the drinking/waiting area is large and loud. However, if you’re planning on seeing a movie and enjoy drinking solid craft beer and eating good food while watching a first run flick? Again, what’s not to like?
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 there’d 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 didn’t try any food while I was there.
The prices on the brews all seemed average.
Overall, this is a definite stop if you’re in the Round Rock/Austin area. Good brews and an interesting concept.
A cinema slash brewpub? I had to visit that. And frankly, if it wasn’t 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 it’s 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!
Glad to be taken here. Did not go for the full blown cinematic scene - just went in, sat at the bar and had a beer - a very good beer and a very attentive waiter that honestly seemed very proud to be serving a good selection in Williamson County. Great job - good brews from the brewhouse and super guest taps - 48 taps? Really - this is more than amazing.
Better selection than Homefield. Beers are surprisingly tasty and much better than what one would usually find at a place like this (cough, cough, Two Rows); I see a lot of promise in these guys. Kick Walt in the delicatos if you see him there.
