AUSTIN | The appeal of Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden can be summarised very easily – it offers over 100 craft beers on tap and 30 tasty house made sausages which can be enjoyed in one of Austin’s largest beer gardens. This alone should be enough to convince you to visit but if you want to know more, keep reading.
The tap list contains a very good selection of local beers along with beers from elsewhere in the USA and a few international brews. Whether its core range favourites or seasonal and one-off beers you’re after, you’ll be sure to find something you want on the taps. If not, there’s a decent bottle list which expands the selection even further. Beers are broken down by flavour profile, and then sub-categories within those profiles.
Given the number of beers on offer you’d think that the staff might not be able to keep on top of things, but you’d be wrong. Owner Ben Siegel requires all staff to get level one Cicerone certification within a year of starting up and all staff attend classes at Banger’s own “beer college”. If you want to talk beer, or don’t know what to choose and need some guidance, the friendly staff are always happy to help.
The sausages range from the standard to the exotic. If you want Bratwurst or Spicy Italian, you’ve got it. If it’s something like Duck Bulgogi or South Texas Antelope and Venison Merguez that you’re after, there’s that too. There are even a few vegetarian options available for those who are that way inclined.
With great beer, great food, great fun, Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden ticks all of the right boxes.
