Hours: Sat (call ahead or visit website for tours and special events)
This microbrewery has a rounded arsenal of beers, drawing from the usual suspects (IPA, porter, and a Belgian wheat). Brewer Kevin Brand was bitten by the brew bug while a student at the University of Texas, earning a medical engineering degree. Now he has his finger on the pulse of Austin taste-makers, having to more than doubled his brewing capacity to keep up with demand. To mix things up, Brand often uses casks from a local Jack Daniels’ distillery to age his brews. Distribution is still local—you can sample Brand's beers at local watering holes and farm-to-table events and purchase pre-filled growlers at Austin retailers.(512)also offers several tastings and tours on Saturdays.Recommended Dishes:
