    Easy Tiger has the winning Austin formula: in-house bread and pastries, craft beer, ping pong, and a friendly neighborhood atmosphere, in the most improbable of places: Dirty Sixth. [Eater 38 Member]

    Time to carb up, y’all: The street-level bakeshop serves up top-of-the-line breads and pastries; mosey on to the downstairs beer garden and you’ll find mouth-watering cured meats and excellent brews. Read more

    Came here for brunch and was blown away. If you want something different try the Italian beef. It's a perfect balance of pickled veggies, cheese and beef. Never tried anything like it. I'm in love.

    Great beer selection, quiet enough to hear your friends and lively enough to give energy. We had the German board and the pretzel was very fresh. Great place to start off with a beer and snack.

    Their salad is amazing! Their Turkey Sandwich is mouth watering and if it is packed when you come in just grab a menu and go upstairs. The ladies there are super nice, fast and accommodating.

    Great place to go to get a craft beer on 6th street (which can be hard to find)! They always have an excellent selection.

    A great - and constantly rotating - beer selection, many many *excellent* baked goods, and all the german bar food (sausage / pretzels) that you could want.

    IMO they have the best Pastrami Sandwiches! Because they have a bakery upstairs I always order mine on Toasted Sourdough! Its amazingly quite wicked

    Wide selection of draft beers. The kielbasa, homemade beer cheese, mustard, and coleslaw were worth visiting Austin for. Get the German plate!

    Drew Curren's combination beer garden and bakery on Dirty Sixth has proven to be a massive hit. They supply bread all over town and are even popping up at the farmer's market. Read more

    Doesn't matter what you choose, the freshly baked goods at Easy Tiger are not to be missed. Even if you just need some munchies, a baguette with butter or soft pretzel will satisfy your cravings!

    Order a snack board and a bottle of Original Sin cider and settle in for the best game of Scrabble you've ever played. Other board games live under the tiger painting downstairs.

    Their pretzels are awesome! Second best I've ever had, the winner being the always-sublime offerings of Salzburg, Austria. The other breads are also delicious, as is the coffee.

    Stopped in for morning treat and picked up a turkey & cheese turnover, a pretzel and a large coffee. Turnover was light and flaky and the pretzel was awesome! Coffee was good, too.

    Share the Snack Board with some friends. It comes with a large portion of beer cheese, which let's face it, is all you really need in life. Did I mention it's DELICIOUS?

    Just a few blocks away from the convention center, this is a fantastic place to stop for a quick beer and a meeting. There’s a great outdoor patio downstairs and plenty of tables.

    Bratwurst in Pretzel Bun: Resist the temptation to stuff yourself with bread and beer cheese and save room for this sausage sandwich.

    Pretzels and beer cheese are a classic happy hour option here. Great beer selection and ping pong outside. Add them on FBook to get their special event invites

    Pretzels are excellent, beer cheese only makes them better. Love the garlic sausage (the merguez sausage was just ok). Mexican Coke--with cane sugar--reminded me of how Coke used to taste.

    The baguette and butter.. Phenomenal. As a nearly native Frenchman who's never satisfied with an American baguette, this comes the closest to what I can get at home.

    Great coffee and free wifi, but we didn't find any outlets in the main bar/dining area downstairs. If you're working be sure and have a full charge before you come.

    Sit outside and make new friends! And pick up a delicious loaf of bread from the bakery on the way out. Delish food, outstanding hand-picked beer selection.

    Best soft pretzels and mustard that will change your life. Amazing space to enjoy a beer or snack outside in low key vibes without the chaos.

    They have great drinks specials. Pastrami sandwich was delicious. Waiter was very knowledgable in the wine flights. Plus live DJ and got to play some ping pong

    This place is approved by a German! Their pretzels are really good and even the sausages taste amazing. Get the beer cheese and the honey mustard.

    Best beer garden in the city. You have to order the pretzel and beer cheese, and don't forget to pickup a baguette to take home with you.

    Amazing coffee, fresh baked goods upstairs, & beer, booze, cured meats downstairs. Aesthetically, one of our favorite spots around. Will be having bands for SXSW, too.

    Great little sunken spot on the canal. Dog friendly and good beer selection. Wish the waterfall was going when I was there.

    Great atmosphere and a great beer list. The beer cheese is overrated. It's not bad, but it's not anything to rant and rave about on foursquare. Also, this is the center of the hipster nest in Austin.

    Their beef garlic sausage and beer cheese are both great; try the combination in kolache form.

    Epic house cured meats. Game sausage and pastrami are excellent. Great beer selection rivaled only by Ginger Man—try something different.

    The pretzel and beer cheese here are excellent snacks, and the large pretzel can easily be a snack for 2–3 friends.

    If you're in the mood for an IPA take the barkeep's advice and try the enjoy by (stone) if they've got it.

    Beer turns over fast. Ask your server what is off menu to make sure you're getting the best of the best.
