We aged some in emptied Gin barrels for a few months and Wow! This beer has oak and subtle gin botanical spiciness. don’t miss it.
(512) Brewing Company (512) Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter Robust Porter brewed with organic texas pecans aged in oak whiskey barrels 9.5 30 (512) WBADPP is our signature Pecan Porter doubled up and aged in recently emptied oak whiskey barrels for two months. It’s a real treat. Whiskey, coffee, chocolate and pecans come together with rich sweetness to form a unique flavor that we’ve grown to love ever since it’s first release in 2010.
Adelbert’s Brewery Lemon Rye Mosiac Pale Ale 4.5 35 This easy drinking beer is made with lemon peel and rye then dry hopped with a generous helping of Mosiac hops. The result is a blend of citrus, earthy pine, tropical fruit and subtle rye notes creating a highly crushable, refreshing beer.
Adelbert’s Brewery Tripel B Tripel 9.3 24 This complex, straw-colored ale has clove and pear aromas. A marriage of spicy and fruity flavors help perfectly balance its elegant malt profile.
Adelbert’s Brewery Hibiscus Saison Saison 5.6 28 This saison’s vibrant pink color inspired us to give a percentage of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Resource Center. Brewed with hibiscus flowers and dry hopped with Citra, this ale blends a hint of tartness with tropical fruit and citrus notes.
Adelbert’s Brewery Contemplating Waterloo Gin Barrel Aged Saison 9.1 21 While enjoying a beer with our good friends at Treaty Oak Distilling Co., we contemplated the possibilities of aging our beers in their barrels. Soon we were filling their Waterloo Antique Gin barrels with Philosophizer, our spicy and citrusy saison. A complex array of lavender, juniper and oak from the barrel balanced with the Philosophizer to create a smooth, warming ale.
Alamo Beer Co. Alamo Amber Lager Vienna Lager 4.7 24 Malty with notes of caramel that finish dry on the palate

Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. Velvet Revolution Bohemian-Style Pilsener 5 40 Our Ode to Plzen
Josef Groll mashed the first Pilsener in the Bohemian town of Plzen on October 5, 1842 and it was unlike any beer that had ever been made – an aromatic, golden-blond, full-bodied lager. We brew ours with all Czech malt and Saaz hops and lager it for nine weeks. Cheaper than a ticket to Prague!
Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. Sassy Tugboat American-Style India Pale Ale 6.4 65 It’s Tug Time!

B-52 Brewing Co. Saison Hop Saison / Farmhouse Ale 5.6 20 A classic-style executed in an unconventional way, no two batches of our Saison Hop are ever the same because we heavily dry-hop each barrel with rotating varietals. The moment this beer washes over your palate, it will be immediately clear this is anything but your run-of-the-mill Saison—the hoppiness is generous at its mildest, and borderline-overpowering at its most-pronounced, with a consistently subtle malt flavor throughout. When the dog days of summer roll around, this is one of our favorite beers to kick-back and cool off with.
B-52 Brewing Co. Ze CrHAZY German Hazy IPA 7.6 45 Hazy IPA made with all German ingredients for Oktoberfest
Bearded Fox Brewing Co. Aunt Rose Helles Lager 5.5 15 Biscuity malts balance well with German hops to create our most approachable beer. Enjoyed by the craft beer aficionado, as well as the craft beer newcomer, the distinctive red hue and malty character give way to a smooth, crisp finish

Brigadoon Brewery & Brew School Scottish Scottish 60 Shilling 6.1 35 A low alcohol, low hopped and low carbonated beer designed to be drunk at your local pub at the end of a long work day. Each taste is a wee bit of history. Nice well-rounded taste of bold malts, sweet smacks of grain, then swept around and out with a lovely, slightly hoppy finish. A higher level of unfermented sugars create a rich mouth feel, with malty flavors and aroma. Overall hop character is low, light floral, herbal, allowing this style’s signature malt profile to be the center of attention.
Scottish Light 60 Shilling
Brigadoon Brewery & Brew School Green Ogre IPA Imperial IPA 8.9 73 First brewed in England and exported for the British troops in India during the late 1700’s.  To withstand the voyage IPA’s were basically tweaked Pale Ales that were, in comparison, much more malty, boasted a higher alcohol content and were well-hopped, as hops  are a natural preservative.
This IPA is wonderfully balanced- it won’t destroy your palate, but it also provides a nice kick of hop flavor that you would want from an IPA.  The addition of the cascade hops helps diffuse some of the English malt mouth feel and brings forth a nice refreshing citrus note at the end.
Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co Crush City IPA 7 60 Bright citrusy mandarina hops make this IPA super crushable
Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co Amaretto by Morning Cream Ale 5.9 28 Cream Ale with almond extract, Amaya Temporada espresso beans, and vanilla bean
Cedar Creek Brewery Dankosaurus IPA American IPA 6.8 65 The key to this beer is that we used actual dinosaurs bones. Okay, that was a lie. But we did throw enough hops in here to bury a Brontosaurus. Inspired by some of our favorite West Coast IPAs the bold pine, citrus, peach, and tangerine hop flavors along with a clean bitterness are balanced by that velvety malt backbone. This beautiful blend of flavor and drinkability showcases the truly unique Eureka! hops, which we find to be wonderfully juicy and dank. You don’t need tiny arms and a huge head to enjoy this mammoth IPA!
Cedar Creek Brewery Catastrophic Failure American Sour Ale 6.1 7 Sour with a nice lactic acidity that is surprisingly drinkable. Tart &
funky.
Celis Brewery Celis White Belgian Wheat 4.9 20 Slighty tart fruit flavor notes balanced with light maltiness and wheat. Finishes with complex spice and citrus for a refreshing taste.
Celis Brewery Celis Citrus Grandis East Coast IPA 5 45 Bold grapefruit, orange rinds. Melon, passionfruit, pineapple and light peach notes come afterwards with gentle pine and resin bitterness.
Celis Brewery Celis Pale Bock Bock 4.9 25 Subdued berry and caramel malts, a touch of citrus, and hints of herbs and spices. Light bitterness from noble hops and roast from the malt.
Circle Brewing Co. Blur Texas Hefe South German Hefeweizen 4.6 12 This Texas twist on the German wheat beer brings a hint of caramel to a crisp and refreshing style.  The citrus aroma plays off the light and creamy body to create a beer that has no rival whether you enjoy it in the sun or in the shade.
Circle Brewing Co. Tuxedo Tshirt Black IPA 6.5 41 We like to picture our Black IPA in a Tuxedo Tshirt. Because it says it’s formal, but it’s down to party. We like to party, so we want our Black IPA to party too. Rolling five deep, with its friends Mosaic, Simcoe, Cascade, Columbus, and Zythos, Tuxedo Tshirt won’t hesitate to hop burst all over your taste buds…but in a classy way.
Community Beer Company Mosaic IPA India Pale Ale 8.6 85 This is not your average IPA.  From the incredible nose to the amazing finish, this is an IPA that both session drinkers and beer nerds alike will love.  Named for the generous use of Mosaic hops, and the diversity of people that visit our brewery and enjoy our beers each day.  This beer is dominated by hoppy flavors & aromas of mango, papaya and blueberry all carefully balanced by an exquisite malt backbone.
Community Beer Company Texas Helles Helles Lager 5 15 Texas Helles is a crisp, golden lager, fashioned after the highly drinkable beers found in the boisterous beer halls of Bavaria.  All-German malts create a slightly sweet front balanced by noble Hallertau hops in the finish.  Coupled with our long, cold lagering process to ensure a smooth and highly drinkable brew.
Community Beer Company Public Ale English Style ESB 5.5 38 INspired by British public houses, or “pubs”, this beer was brewed to bring people together!  It showcases all English ingredients including heirloom Maris Otter malt and East Kent Golding hops making for a most balanced & delicious brew, regardless of what side of the pond you’re from!
Community Beer Company Yessir! Pale Ale American Pale Ale 5.2 32 Refreshingly dry, hop forward American-style Pale Ale showcasing Eureka & Lemon Drop hops.  Lemon zest & tangerine dominate the flavor profile.
Deep Ellum Brewing Company Hop Seeker Wet Hop American Pale Ale 5.6 64 Hop Seeker is a 100% wet hop ale with fresh cut Centennial hops in the initial boil and Equinox in the dry hop. Notice a pronounced aroma profile with citrus, tropical fruit, floral and herbal characteristics.

And with some over-the-top tropical fruit, citrus, pine and floral aromas and flavors, you’ve got one big Texas IPA, deserving of the Deep Ellum name.
Deep Ellum Brewing Company Deep Ellum Lager Pale Lager 4.8 20 This crushable rye lager is our throwback to great show beer.

Flying Man Brewing Company Weedhopper Honey Wheat Kotbusser 5.6 17 Kotbusser is a type of German ale, and cousin to the family of white beers due to the use of wheat malt. This crisp, golden-colored ale is brewed with wheat, oats and barley, and moderately hopped with a healthy addition of noble hops to create a floral bouquet in the aroma. Honey and molasses add a subtle complexity that sets this beer apart from other wheat beers. Think of it as an alt-beer with a twist.
Flying Man Brewing Company Coffin Corner Porter Porter 6.7 37 Our Tangerine Chocolate Porter is extremely well balanced.  A roasted malt flavor from chocolate malts and raw cocoa nibs.   Hints of tangerine in the finish adds to the complexity and enhances the overall flavor.
Four Corners Brewing Co Sol YLuna Hoppy Lager 4.8 22 Mellow flavors of pilsner malt with a burst of crisp hops and aromas of summer citrus.
Four Corners Brewing Co El Chingon IPA 7.6 73 A smack of hop machismo!

Hops & Grain Brewing Volumes of Oak: Belgian Style Saison Mixed Culture Saison 5.7 18 Our Belgian Style Saison is a result of 10 months of aging in one of our American Oak foeders with a blend of 3 wild yeast strains as well as our house Saison yeast.  Notes of oak and a slight earthy funk are prominent on the nose and the flavor follows with a complex blend of fruity yeast esters, some pleasant funk and hints of vanilla and coconut in the finish.
Hops & Grain Brewing Lupulin Rodeo IPA IPA 6.7 45 Lupulin Rodeo is part of our commitment to excessive usage of hops! Blending 6 varieties together, including hops in both pellet and LupuLN2 powder form, creates a beer with a rich grapefruit pithy dankness and a juicy, tropical finish.

Idle Vine Brewing Company Stygian Dark Saison 8.7 30 Steej-ee-uh-n: Dark, gloomy, infernal, relating to the river Styx. However, there’s no reason to fear this beer. Within its deep ruby-brown color hides intense flavors of dark fruit and  tartness. Saisons don’t always need to be bright and bubbly and Stygian is a perfect example of breaking the style barrier. The highlight of this Saison  is our specialty Saison yeast strain which imparts a slightly dry acidity that balances the deep flavor and complex body.
Idle Vine Brewing Company Idle Vine IPA American India Pale Ale 7.3 69 An IPA so damn good we named it after our brewery. This West Coast style IPA is packed full of Columbus, Citra and Amarillo hops that just can’t be beat.

Lone Pint Brewery Gentleman’s Relish English Brown Ale 6.2 28 Our Brown Ale gives a nod to the Northern English Brown style. However, since defeating the English in 1783, it is analogistic that the American version be stronger to reflect on England’s vanquishment. Gentleman’s Relish uses Maris Otter malt as the base, augmented with dark crystal and chocolate malts. Whole cone English hops are used throughout the boil, imparting their characteristic smooth bitterness. The beer is named after an Englishman’s favorite snack, an anchovy paste, typically eaten on toast.
Tasting notes: dark brown with a thick creamy head; chocolate-caramelly-nuttiness yields to a clean hoppy finish.
Lone Pint Brewery The Jabberwocky Imperial India Pale Ale 8.5 114 Our Imperial India Pale Ale uses Golden Promise malt and two very pungent whole cone American hops. This brew is hopped so heavily that post-boil, after all of the wort has been transferred to the fermenter, the hop mass at the bottom of the kettle is more than one foot deep. Post-fermentation, Jabberwocky is dry hopped with colossal amounts of the same two hops. The beer is named after a monster we all hold dear.
Tasting notes: deep golden with a head made of hop resin; light malt breadiness hidden beneath an onslaught of pungent hoppy tropical-fruitiness.

North by Northwest Porchtime German-style Pilsner 5.2 35 Porchtime is our take on the classic German style Pilsner lager.

North by Northwest Zombie Dragon N.E. style IPA 7.1 46 Brewed to celebrate NXNW’s 18th anniversary, Zombie Dragon is our latest in our rotating IPA series.

Peticolas Brewing Company Velvet Hammer Imperial Red Ale 9 85 A tribute to our favorite Brewmaster, Greg Matthews, the Velvet Hammer appears as a dark, ruby reddish-brown ale beneath a sheath of protective off-white foam. It is malt-forward with elements of caramel and the sweetness of light brown sugar, balanced nicely by a combination of floral hops and a noticeable alcohol bite. It’s a sturdy brew with a smooth character which belies both an inner strength and a slightly full body, along with a moderate bitterness to round out the taste.
Peticolas Brewing Company Sit Down Or I’ll Sit You Down Imperial IPA 10 90 The intent with the beer is to exhibit the fresh and bright character of the hops. We dry hopped it with over a pound of hops per barrel of beer. It’s gold in color and the floral ester aroma is high. The hop bitterness is high, but not at all harsh. The hop flavor is high, fresh, and lively. Yet with all of our beers, it’s all about balance and this one is no exception. The malt character is fairly high and provides a tremendously full mouthfeel. Finally, the alcohol in this beer is intentionally present (and delicious).
Pinthouse Pizza Training Bines IPA 7 40 Inspired by the hop harvest, this hazy IPA is brewed with Citra, Simcoe & Mosaic Lupulin powder. Producing a bright, juicy fruit forward IPA with low bitterness and a soft mouthfeel.

The substantial malt backbone establishes the dark ruby/garnet color and supports the significant flavor and aroma additions of American Pacific Northwest hops. The hop nose is bright, resinous, and lingers to the end.
Rabbit Hole Brewing Shield Biter Strong Scotch Ale Strong Scotch Ale 8 25 Rich and malty, with a bold, complex caramel character.  Notes of plum and other dark fruit esters present themselves in the malt before fading to a lingering, slightly sweet finish.
Real Ale Brewing Co. Axis IPA IPA 7.1 60 Brewed for tap walls overrun with the white noise of West Coast IPA’s, here’s an offering so exotic, you’d think it was from another world. Like its namesake before it, the axis deer of Southern Asia, so too has this species of hop-forward animal magnetism come to invade the landscape of IPA’s that have long held sway over the taps of Texas’s finest watering holes. Tropical fruit, citrus, and a pale golden body, help keep this breed light on its feet. And with few natural predators there is little anyone can do to stop the spread.
Real Ale Brewing Co. Stoned Hans Dryhopped German Pilsner 5.3 50 A year and a half ago we turned 20. So did our friends at Stone. What better way to celebrate than with a nano-collab.

Firemans meets Fire Eagle; this #4 has talons.
Real Ale Brewing Co. Nomad Dryhopped Belgian Blonde 7 46 As we wander through the wide world of beer, we find ourselves evolving as nomads of sorts. Germany, Belgium, and the U.S. all infuse this culmination of our travels. We start with the noble roots of German hop varietals, ferment with our favorite Belgian yeast strain, and finish with a touch of American hop panache to bring it all together. The finished beer combines spice and clove with herbal citrus and a bright tropical finish. With depth and complexity we display the fruits of our years of travel.
Red Horn Coffee House and Brewing Co. Betcha A’ Dollar IPA American IPA 7.5 70 When the cat is away, the mice will Betcha’ A Dollar they can make a damn good beer! This is the first solo brew of the two Red Horn Assistant Brewers, Reno and Tyler, crafted when our head brewer was away for Thanksgiving. Generously hopped with Citra and Chinook hops, this IPA is piney on the nose, citrusy on the tongue with a delicate and delightful finish that is just peachy. American two row, Munich, and Crystal 60 malts offer a dry grainy backbone that highlights the hops so fresh like. Betcha’ A Dollar you’ll love this one !
Red Horn Coffee House and Brewing Co. House United Coffee Stout Coffee Stout 5.4 30 Our house specialty brew unites our two in house features, fresh roasted coffee and great craft beer.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company Art Car IPA American IPA 7.1 44 Art Car IPA is an American IPA featuring a blend of both new and old hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest.

There is a lightly sweet malt body that allows the hops to shine while maintaining a nice complexity to the flavors.
Saint Arnold Brewing Company 5 O’Clock Pils Bohemian Pils 5.2 40 5 O’Clock Pils is all about its two ingredients: pils malt and Saaz hops. This is the entire basis of the original Bohemian Pils style.The pils malt is light yet with a pleasant bready character, emphasized by the decoction mash wherein a portion of the mash is removed, boiled and added back. Saaz hops, the only hop that has never been hybridized dating back to when it was first cultivated from a wild plant around 1,000 years ago, gives a pleasant earthy spiciness.
Saint Arnold Brewing Company Divine Reserve 15 Russian Imperial Stout 10 46 This Divine Reserve was inspired by the winning entry of the 2007 Big Batch Brew Bash homebrew competition, brewed by Mike Heniff, a highly decorated local Houston homebrewer.
