What we're pouring
HERE’S WHAT’S ON TAP
BOURBON BARREL AGED SHOKOLAD 2017 | IMPERIAL CHOCOLATE STOUT
9.5% ABV / 45 IBU
Aged just over a month in freshly emptied bourbon barrels, this is the very first beer to come out of our new barrel aging program. A bold imperial stout featuring heavy additions of cocoa nibs from local roaster SRSLY Chocolate, the roasty, chocolatey flavors are well complimented by vanilla, oak, and warming alcohol from the barrel.
BOURBON BARREL AGED BERDOLL BROWN | PECAN BROWN ALE
7.3% ABV / 30 IBU
This is truly an explosion of flavor. Rich, caramel, and nutty notes are supported with woody, caramel, boozy bourbon flavor. Complex, well balanced, and warming, this beer is blow-your-top smooth.
BOURBON BARREL AGED SHRIEKING EEL | AMERICAN IPA
7% ABV / 69 IBU
A somewhat unexpected matchup, this bold IPA found its intense hop quality softened by the whiskey, and the whiskey quality (which can easily become overwhelming in barrel aged beers) was equally softened by the beer. The result is a distinctly hop forward beer without a bitter bite, enhanced by soft vanilla and oak flavors and light effervescence.
TEQUILA BARREL AGED LEMONGRASS WIT | WITBIER
5% ABV / 15 IBU
Our friends down the road at Tequila 512 provided these tequila barrels, which we filled up with our staple witbier and aged for nearly two months. The result is a complex, citrusy, tangy treat with a pleasant finish that will leave you wanting more.
BERDOLL BROWN | PECAN BROWN ALE
7.3% ABV | 30 IBU
Berdoll Brown is a traditional nut brown ale that was brewed with pecans from our friends at Berdoll Farms in Cedar Creek, Texas. This luscious ale is complex and well balanced with nutty, chocolate, and caramel flavors.
ESPRESSO PORTER | COFFEE PORTER
5.5% ABV / 45 IBU
Made for the black coffee drinker – no frills, just porter and coffee. It has alluring aroma and flavors of rich coffee and dark chocolate, with subtle fruity plum notes. Dry, roasty finish.
NITRO LATTE PORTER
COFFEE PORTER 5.3% ABV / 45 IBU
This is the beer for the Caffe Latte lover. What is a latte? It’s espresso topped with creamy steamed milk. To mimic that creaminess, we add lactose sugar to the boil, which gives the Porter a touch of sweetness and fullness to the body. We decided to amp it up by serving it on nitro to ensures a beautiful, creamy mouthfeel. This lovely has distinct coffee and chocolate flavors, but with a decidedly more “latte-like” feel.
GREEN ROOM | TEXAS IPA
7% ABV | 70 IBU
The Green Room is a happy and hoppy beer that strikes all the right chords. This tasty brew tunes up the taste buds with some intense grapefruit flavors. Herbaceous aromas sustain the experience which finishes with bright citrus notes.
BARTON SPRINGS | PALE ALE

This pale ale is as refreshing as Austin’s favorite swimming hole. Bitter undertones combine with citrus and floral aromas while light crystal malts add sweetness and copper color.
BRUT SQUAD | BRUT IPA
6.7% ABV | 21 IBU
Brut IPA is a new beer style this year that has caught on like wildfire. It’s a crazy dry beer — we’re talkin’ 0° Plato — with an extremely light body and champagne-like finish. This bright, aromatic beer was dry hopped with more than 3lbs per barrel, giving it huge hop aroma and flavor with a surprisingly low level of bitterness. El Dorado and Mandarina Bavaria hops are the stars of this show, putting the spotlight on big aromas of mandarin orange, stone fruit, mango, and pear, and following with similar floral, fruity flavors. It finishes extremely dry.
SHRIEKING EEL | AMERICAN IPA
7% ABV | 69 IBU
This bold IPA is made with Amarillo, Chinook and Citra hops. It’s floral and fruity with prominent orange and grapefruit flavors and a pique of pineapple. It has healthy supplies of bitterness that are well balanced with just a hint of sweetness leaving a dry, slightly resiny finish.

LAZY DAY | LAGER

Lazy Day Lager features Vienna malts and Noble hops for an incredibly dry and drinkable brew. A golden libation that says slow down and savor the moments in every season.
