My friend Charles invited me to go to the opening of South Austin Brewing Co. which is located a little bit south of I35 and 71.
It’s a really exciting time to be a beer enthusiast in Austin. A lot of new pubs and breweries have been opening up, and it’s creating a very “rooted” foodie culture in which the hottest food trailers are partnering with these new establishments. Perhaps soon we’ll see well thought out food and beer pairings appear on trailer menus!
South Austin currently has a golden ale and saison. Their golden ale has a very smooth mouthfeel, that ends with a touch of sweetness. Their saison isn’t as funky as offerings from other breweries, but it still have a bit of kick from hops, as well as a nice orange peel aroma.
