What To Expect When You Visit Blue Owl Brewing:
We do things differently at our Sour Sanctuary! When you visit for on-site sips, we offer a tasting experience where you’ll need to purchase a tasting glass that includes four complimentary beers of your choice!

Because of neighborhood zoning restrictions, we aren’t allowed to sell beer directly for on-site consumption. Our tasting experience is meant to help you take the time to relax and lean into the world of sours! You’re welcome to split your tasting amongst friends, take some beers to-go in cans, or return at a later date to finish your complementary fills. We offer a range of beers, from main-stays to specialty sours. Check out what’s on tap today!

Located at the NW corner of Cesar Chavez and Pedernales, parking is available on street or in The Holly Commons lot (free with validation) next to our neighbor, Paz Vet. Please be respectful of residents when parking in the neighborhood.


Absolutely tremendous sours, possible the best I've had in the country! Would highly recommend any of their sours ranging from iLimetastico! to Teeny Hopper. Picked up some cans to go as well on the way out, would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Austin and specifically around that area.

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.

Wonderful Brewing company and amazing selection of beers. 100% worth the stop. A must see. Friendly Staff and outstanding product.

Great sour beers! You can't beat their deal where you pay $20 for 4 beers and you get to keep the glass. Honestly, you can't go wrong with any of the beers they have. I'd recommend the Little Boss or the Van Dayum.

Literally such a welcoming environment. I love coming to town and make sure to visit Blue Owl every time. Every employee I have ever encountered has always been beyond friendly and made me feel comfortable and at home trying new things!
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!!!

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.
