If you’re not a fan of sour beers, this brewery may help you change your mind. They always have different beers on tap with excellent flavors. I love the Tropical Brut and my boyfriend loves his Smash Smash. The people are awesome and the atmosphere is great. Definitely one of my favorite breweries.

Awesome brewery that focuses on sour beers. They have some of the best deals that I've ever come across at any brewery or beer serving establishment. In addition to incredible deals, the beers are excellent quality. We tried a sour, a couple sour IPAs, and a raspberry sour. The atmosphere is great too. There is indoor and outdoor seating. There are some board games available. The staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. There are a couple restrooms which were spacious. It's a great venue.

Love this Brewery! Finally a brewery that feels like it was made for me! Great beers- different, fun, and experimental. Staff is always friendly which is huge for me!

My favorite brewery in Austin. They do a funny system where you "buy a glass" and then get four free pours of beer to taste what they have. They make all sour beers, and they're going to be some of the best sour beers you've ever had. Get the spirit animal to start with something classic, then try out their more experimental ones they have rotating to try something new. Oh and dogs are always welcome, so bring your pooch!

I seriously can not give this place enough stars!!! Best place we've been to in a long time, and we are traveling the U.S.!!! All the beers were AMAZING and the way they present the beer in "flights" is awesome! Graphic designers are on point, swag is awesome! And the prices are unbeatable for any beer and unbelievable for kick-ass sours! OHHH and totally dog friendly inside and out! Even their bathrooms are stocked with hairspray, deodorant, mouthwash, tampons and even Mrs. Meyers hand soap!!!! Absolutely nothing bad to say about this place! Huge round of applause you guys!!!

Loved Blue Owl Brewing! Definitely worth a stop if you are in Austin. Bartenders really know their stuff; great music too.

Do you like sour beer? If you answered yes then why aren't you here already? If you don't like sour beer, verify by trying the definition of it at Blue Owl Brewing because "The Owls are not what they seem." - yep, they're Lynch fans of the best show to make it to TV. BOB is your uncle and your favorite sour beer. Come in and select a size, get 4 samples in that glass, and when you finish - keep it! The glass is yours. Heavy rotation keeps its original and I love it. They have some staples for those trying to have a routine.
