    Look elsewhere for a true dive bar. Not bad but just feels like it was created by Disney for one of their theme parks.

    The Man In Black isn't just a great song, it's also a fascinating beer blend.

    If the bartender tells you to leave, head across the street to Donn's Depot.

    Pretty snazzy Pseudo Hipster Bar. Oh yeah did I mention Johnny Cash, he lives here. One of the best times for a "regular" Saturday night in Austin.

    A great place if you are interested in the Austin music scene as much as the local beer scene.

    If you're hungry for more than the small snax they've got, head across to El Arroyo and bring stuff back to M-E-C.
