It's not just breweries that are abundant either, but great craft beer bars. Places like Banger Sausage House, Craft Pride, Wright Bros. Brew & Brew and Waller Street Pub House have fantastic beer lists and knowledgeable staff. It's not hard to find great beer.
Last time I was in town a year ago I made it out to one of my favorites, Jester King. I also got to Independence and Blue Owl during the visit. This year I wanted to hit some breweries I hadn't been to so I set out for a cool half-dozen, which is really easy to do with 2+ days in this town. I did pretty well, finally getting up to north Austin and 3 breweries, all walking distance from each other. That's a pretty fun time and worth the Uber cost to get to. The other 3 are sort of just east of downtown.

And there are still just so many more breweries. I guess I'll need a lot more trips.
But for now, here were my quick Twitter recaps and pics for this year:
1st brewery visit of this #Austin trip is @ZilkerBeer. Had a nice NE IPA and tasty blackberry kettle sour. Neat spot. Popular! pic.twitter.com/wat3YnnpmJ— Woo Pig Brewey! 🐷🍺 (@WooPigBrewey) February 16, 2019

Loving the visit to @OskarBluesATX on a beautiful day! Got a nice tour and drinking a taproom only Obsessive Combrewsive tropical mango IPA is a great half-marathon reward. pic.twitter.com/b0oEMb7QE3— Woo Pig Brewey! 🐷🍺 (@WooPigBrewey) February 17, 2019
Really cool space and vibe at @CelisBeers. Tried several solid brews in what I’m told is Austin oldest brewery. pic.twitter.com/0wugr45Vxs— Woo Pig Brewey! 🐷🍺 (@WooPigBrewey) February 17, 2019
