AUSTIN | The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Company (“ABGB”) has become a very popular spot in the three years its been open and it’s easy to see why when you visit. The space is very simple. It’s a huge tin shed but it’s been outfitted in a way that makes it very welcoming. Outside there are benches and lawn chairs shaded by large Live Oak trees. Heaters come out during the winter, while long summer nights are accompanied by twinkling patio lights, people walking their dogs and riding their bikes.

Inside it’s long rows of communal benches and tables, built by local craftsman Travis Norman with lots of stools around the bar and wall. Off to the side are some fermentation tanks and a live music stage where local bands can ply their trade. Despite being housed in a big tin shed, the space feels very welcoming. It all fits very well with ABGB’s ethos to “strive to take beer’s innate goodness and put it into action improving our neighborhood, city, and the lives of lots of folks”.

Beer is split into size core range “always” beers and two to four “sometimes” seasonals and one-offs. The Big Mama Red, a hoppy red ale, is particular favourite of ours, while the Rocket 100, a “pre-prohibition style” pilsner is interesting and tasty. Keep an eye out for the fruited sour beers that pop up on the “sometimes” list from time-to-time. There’s even a good, focused cider and wine list for those who aren’t sold on the idea of beer.

Food, meanwhile, is quality. Everything on the menu, including many of the fantastic crispy base pizzas changes depending on what’s good and seasonal. Check out chef Tim Steven’s special devilled eggs along with one of the special pizzas or sandwiches. The Muffaletta is particularly tasty.

ABGB might be best described as a Texan take on a German bierhall. Good beer, good times, and a communal atmosphere conducive to making new friends. We’ll drink to that.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
