The best places to find cheap beer in Austin, Texas
You probably wouldn’t think a bar in Austin’s historic downtown area would be a cheap beer destination.
But that’s exactly what you’ll find on your next visit to the South Lamar location of The Dogfish Head Pub and Grill, which opened in October.
The Doggfather Pub & Grill is known for being an excellent beer destination, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find better beer than Dogfish’s latest seasonal brew.
Here’s our guide to the best places in Austin to get cheap brews and more.
[Top places to buy cheap beer]The Doggbrothers have a loyal following in the Austin area, which includes locals who live nearby.
But when the brewery decided to expand to its new Austin location in October, they set out to do it with an eye toward a local customer base.
“We’ve had people come up to us and say, ‘Hey, I don’t want to spend $20 on beer, but I want to get a good deal on the beer,'” co-owner Mark Dibb told the Austin American-Statesman.
“So we wanted to make sure that the beer we brewed for that customer was going to be good, so we put together a really good list of breweries that we’re excited to have a taproom at.
It’s going to give our customers a place to grab a beer and see what the beers taste like.”
Dibb says that the beers in The Doggie’s taproom are brewed with care and attention to detail, which he said helps create an experience that is more like a casual bar than an established craft brewery.
“The beers are made with a great deal of attention to quality,” Dibbs said.
“We do our best to balance a great beer experience with great beer selection.
We don’t really go to extremes with what we put in there, but we definitely have a great amount of beer available.”
Here’s a look at the beer offerings in The Duggs, where Dibs says the beers will be served in the taproom.
The dog is a dog, and the menu includes everything from poutine to a special burger, which has the Duggfathers’ name engraved on the side.
Here are some other beer-related details to keep in mind when you’re looking for a beer:There’s no seating for the bar itself, so you can sit on the patio, but DibBS says the restaurant will be equipped with TVs, a projector and some tables and chairs for people to sit at.
The patio seats 15 to 20, which is about the size of a football field.
You can grab some craft beer at The Dogfathers, too, but the beers are mostly available for purchase in the pub, which Dibba says will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
The Dogfather’s taps, while limited, are more than enough to satisfy beer-loving Austinites, and it’s a good way to start your week with some cheap brew.
“It’s a great way to try a different brew and get a taste of what they’re serving,” Dhibbs said of The Diggs.
Dibbs and Dibbes have also opened the Dogfather pub to serve food from local restaurants and businesses, including local favorites, like The Dumbo, Barbecue Chicken and The Littlest Duck.
Diggers also plans to open a full-service restaurant, and they are open for lunch, dinner and brunch.
