    Their very special beer was featured in Mystery Diners TV show. People also go there for their slow smoked Texas BBQ.

    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

    Brisket was fatty with no flavor, bread was stale and blue cheese dressing was watery. Worst BBQ experience so far. Appetizers and beer were good.
