Nomadic Beerworks Brewery
3804 Woodbury Dr Suite A, Austin

“Came here to grab a couple of beers and a quick bite on a trip to San Antonio, the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful with helping me decide what to try. Every beer I had was delicious, but I especially loved the Peak Season, a big bold & juicy New England IPA. That one was so good, I grabbed 24 packs for my work trip.I can't wait to get back to this place, very spacious on the inside, and everyone was really chill. They are super dog-friendly as well.“

“Trey was an amazing tour guide with so much great info and some super cool and interesting stories. He even got some great reviews from pedestrians while on our tour that were impressed with him! He took such great care of my group on the streets! I’d give him 6 out of 5 stars if I could…great tour and tour guide that I would recommend to anyone visiting Austin!“

Meanwhile Brewing Brewery
3901 Promontory Point Dr, Austin

“One of my favorite spots to hang out in Austin. The outdoor seating is phenomenal. There's a great variety of high quality beers and a nice selection of food trucks. If you want food truck options, you'll need to go Wed-Sun.People online jokingly call Meanwhile a daycare that serves beer. They're not wrong - there's a dedicated playground in the center and soccer fields that they'll dominate. If you're bothered by kids running around, stay away.My only complaint here is the live music. First, it feels like the bands are always either super new or their sounds aren't well mixed (clangy, muddled). Second, the way the speakers are set up, if you sit in the far areas, you get this weird musical delay effect of hearing the same thing twice with a ~400ms delay because the sound from the speakers hits you before the sound from the stage because the stage faces the facility, not the seating. It drives me crazy.As a result, I actively avoid the location on nights that they have music (typically Tues/Thurs/Fri/Sat starting at 7:30). The less busy times are when this place truly shines.“

Central District Brewing Brewery

“I saw this brewery while walking to the visitor's center, so we decided to pop in to check it out. I liked the vibe of the place with the plants and calming green tones. The bartender was super friendly and gave some recommendations. Nate got a flight of four options and liked them all - I am not much of a beer drinker these days but I enjoyed the few sips I had. The space is cozy and definitely seemed like a nice hangout spot. There were some people playing cards while we were there. I loved their merch including a shirt that says "My favorite beer is beer" which made me laugh. I'd stop in again if in the area visiting!“

Southern Heights Brewing Company Brewery
6014 Techni Center Dr ste 2-101, Austin

“I have been meaning to go for ages and WOW! The selections and flavors were really refreshing. It seems like lots of places throw tons of hops at their IPAs, make all their stouts/porters heavier than Thors hammer, or just extra sour their sours.The effort taken to make sure flavor notes, both beginning and end is quite apparent. I don’t have the best palate, so I can rarely taste notes, but most of these came through for me.As far as atmosphere, there were great selections of seating, both inside and outside, as well as cozy alcoves. Would be great to bring a large party, have an intimate catch up, or even settle in with a book and a brew.The owners were attentive and friendly, without feeling neglectful of others (I can be a chatty Kathy sometimes, haha)I’m looking forward to many returns!“

St. Elmo Brewing Company Brewery
440 E St Elmo Rd G-2, Austin

“I came here for the first time today after a hike with the St Elmo Outsiders group. We arrived to the brewery at 11:30 am and the place was already buzzing with patrons. It's a really neat location with ample indoor and outside seating. You order inside at the bar for drinks or the food trucks outside for food. The employees were super friendly and worked very efficient to manage the large crowd. It was also cool to see that the place is both child/family friendly and dog friendly. They have bunch of games and many non-alcoholic beverages to keep kids entertained, as well as water bowls to keep furry friends hydrated. I had the Leonardo (a pilsner) and a Roxanne (a sour); both of which were very good. I slightly preferred Roxanne because the sweetness of the blackberry balanced out the drink profile and made it a great refreshing beer for today's sunny weather. A cool thing I learnt from the owner today is that they sell beer at wholesale prices in reusable growlers to reduce their carbon footprint. I know where I'll be getting the beer for the next party I host“

Zilker Brewing Company and Taproom Brewery
1701 E 6th St, Austin

“The east side of Austin has become trendy-spendy in recent years, and folks are flocking to it. Zilker Brewing is one of Austin’s best. I’ve been a few times, and they never disappoint.But before you start salivating at the thought of great beer, plan where you are going to park your ride. Don’t take the lot next door, because the app quoted me $36 for three hours. I uttered a vile epithet at that point, and took off driving in search of a curbside spot, which I luckily found across the street. I was OK with $2.25 an hour.Please also be advised that Zilker does not serve traditional flights with five-ounce glasses. Instead they offer 10-ounce glasses, which means you have to be careful if you are driving. These add up a lot faster.That said, I wasn’t in a hurry, and so I had four. In order, they were:Cowboy Candy Extra Pale Ale (6.1% ABV; 0 IBU)Marco IPA (7% ABV; 65 IBU)
Bad Wrap IPA (6.8% ABV; 0 IBU)Parks & Rec (5.6% ABV; 40 IBU)I will attest that this was a grand slam, but distinguished by the subtle nuances of each. The Cowboy Candy is a very drinkable XPA. You know you are drinking beer, but man it goes down like water. It was that good, and I suspect on a typical 110-degree summer day in Austin, folks would be slamming these down like Aquafinas.Both the Marco and Bad Wrap were great IPAs, with sufficient hop-forward sensibilities, but no bitter aftertaste. And the Parks & Rec? I could drink that all day long, its delightful finish after each sip leaving me craving the next slug.You can’t do wrong at Zilker.“

Blue Owl Brewing Brewery
2400 E Cesar Chavez St #300, Austin

“We were almost too full and tired to come here, but I am so grateful that we did. The service was great - they even charged my phone for me! They have a tasting menu where you get four full pours and then you get to keep the glass for almost the same price as a 4 beer flight so you better believe we did it. We started with the Imperial stout with orange and chocolate and that was our favorite, so much so that we got a 4 pack of it to fly back home with us. The cranberry one was fine, but nothing special. Our final two pours included the Earl Gray tea one which tasted so much of Earl Gray, that I had to also get that one and cans to go. The final one was the pomegranate sour, which my boyfriend enjoyed thoroughly. Unfortunately, there was a bike bar crawl, so the place was packed when we got there, but we were eventually able to find a place to sit outside, and their adorable decorated patio. Even the bathrooms were cute. I would spend a lot of time here if I was a local.“

Free parking. Some pizza options. Bathrooms were so dirty I could smell them before I saw them. If you’re old enough to remember parents drinking at a slightly dilapidated park with picnic tables, this is that with better, more expensive beer. Live music was pretty good.“

“Great place to drink and be merry, no matter what your group size is. Neally is the absolute best, followed by runners-up Josh & Justin.I love the variety of their rotating beer selection. They have a wide range of flavour profiles and ABV levels. Fun to experiment and find out what you like and don't like. I also appreciate that they provide Waterloo sparkling water.It's a short walking distance away from Q2, making it the perfect pregame spot on Austin FC game days.The verde lemonade & piña colada frozen bevvies were fantastic companions throughout the oppressive summer evenings we had this year.My only complaint is just how ridiculously short-lived their frozen espresso martini was. Unbelievable. I expected it to be available in the taproom the whole autumn/winter seasons. Heck, it was so delicious I could easily enjoy it all year long. Please bring it back ?“

“If you've been to pinthouse and found their pizza disappointing and prefer your beers to not be hoppy, this is the place for you. Their setup is great for an after work happy hour or coming to catch a game. Plenty of comfortable spade indoors and outdoors. The pizza is exactly what brewery pizza should be. Light and crisp with a good variety of options. I had the saucy hog which was a white pie with goat cheese, crispy prosciutto, and balsamic glaze. The flavor mix was really good and I love that they go for that kind of flavor combination. With that said, the overall pizza quality is just okay and I can't see myself coming here for a plain pizza. Their beer specialty is pilsners, they have an average variety of beers for an Austin brewery. I'd call them all pretty palatable for non beer people and the quality was solid, but if you're a beer person visiting Austin I don't think they approach the top tier. Overall they're a nice spot doing a solid job at everything they're going for. Definitely see myself coming back here in the future“

Austin Beerworks Brewery
3001 Industrial Terrace, Austin

“I'm not sure if this place is udually crowded since I came her by mistake. I was trying to go and meet friends for the Lunar New Year. When I arrived, there was a sign posted outside stating the event was being held at the other brewery, which was 15 to 20 minutes away. Since I was hungry and would be late for the event, I stayed here. The food is served from a food truck outside. The menu is limited, but I'm sure you can find something on it to satisfy your hunger. I had a cobb salad with chicken breast. It was crisp and pretty good. I ordered a beer called Surprise Surprise. The beer was nice and complimented the salad. The beer menu may be larger than the food menu. Many choices to select. The brewery has both indoor and outdoor seating. It is fairly large with long tables and benches to be shared by many guests. There is parking in front and across the road. It is located close to Burnet Road nestled between many industrial buildings. The next time you want a beer, then stop by and order a homemade brew at Austin Beerworks! You might, just like it!“

Garbo's On Congress Food Trucks

“Took the day off on Friday to have brunch with my wife over here at Garbo's. It was her suggestion to come here for seafood. I'm not a big fan of seafood, but I will eat it because it's always been a luxury item for me. Another reason to come here is because of the luxurious space to bring all your guests. There is a small playground for your kids to spend all their energy as well as it is dog friendly!Their menu is quite extensive, exploring all the seafood items. I did notice that they have beer, wine and mixed drinks, which makes for a festive menu for happy hour and dinner. We ordered calamari and shrimp for starters. I couldn't decide between the fish and chips or the lobster roll, so we ordered both one for me and one for my wife. The fish and chips is a good recommendation coming from the staff. Their fish is dipped in a beer, batter and fried To perfection. You can't go wrong ordering this platter. I ordered with a side of salad instead of fries. The lobster roll is pretty amazing as well. Since we are new to Garbo's, I asked a lot of questions and became friendly with the server. He gave us a heads up on what to order next time we come for a visit. We finished up with a Keylime pie and their pumpkin pie. Best, pumpkin pie ever!“
