    Overall cool lil local joint, I had the chop meat sandwich with mac n cheese, it was pretty awesome. Then I had the wings. because the bartender said they were also BBQ'd. Also awesome.

    Now with Parking! Still making great beer, decent barbecue and with a spiffy patio to boot, parking garage directly behind the brewpub for convenience. The sauce in the RED squeeze bottle is HOT HOT.

    Great place overall. 2$ pints on Tuesday's. Beef nachos delicious as is fried ocre. The BBQ is just ok, nothing great but not bad. Good outdoor seating space and pup friendly. Good beer

    The Q is OK, but I really go for the local brews that Billy's carry's on tap. A very nice selection that makes the Q taste even better.

    I had the fried okra to start, then the bbq chicken sandwich with firecracker slaw. It was delicious

    The beer they brew is no good, its like they didnt brew it long enough or something. Brisket is nothing to talk about especially in Austin (Rudys is better). Atmosphere is great with porch/patio

    Hop Zombie, fried okra, and always ask for the "red bottle" of BBQ sauce. Then order an extra glass of water.

    UB's anniversary double IPA blasts you with a hoppy 100 IBUs and then finishes with a subtle sweet malty flavor. Boom Shaka laka!
