    If you're feeling adventurous and they have the Live Oak Grodziske, give it a try. Very smoky, Polish-style beer.

    Earth Day is a great day to get hammered. 5% of your bar tab goes to support eco-friendly causes.

    Love this divey spot in East Downtown Austin. Take in the cool art and hard drinks. Very cool atmosphere and nice staff. They will make whatever cocktail fantasies you have come true.

    Another of the Eastside's great dives. Bonus points for the East Side King trailer in the backyard.

    I like the atmosphere, but the bartender had a little attitude in regards to any questions regarding beers...

    A local is stealing bikes locked up outside of this bar. Don't believe the sign outside. They don't have a camera. They know people are stealing bikes from here and aren't telling their customers.

    Don't let the bartender put on "hoarders". It's depressing.
