Uncle Billy’s Brew & Que, Austin TX

Austin is one of the great cities in Texas, known for it’s music scene and night life. My friend, Missy, took a group of us to Uncle Billy’s which combines Crafted brew with Barbeque and Music. Sounds like a winner!

We had a sampler of 6 of their beers: Oatmeal Stout, Bitchin Camaro, Agave Wit, Hill Country Amber, Hop Zombie and the Ax Handle Pale Ale. I really enjoyed most of the beers as they were a little hoppier than other beers in these styles. You can definitely taste the hops in each. For the group of people I was with, 2 drank the Ax Handle Pale Ale which had a great smell and color. My girlfriend enjoyed the Agave Wit, which was a wheat beer with agave nectar. Another friend really liked the Bitchin Camaro, which was an Amber Ale and fairly hopped. The Oatmeal Stout was okay and not really creamy like we expected. The other 3 people drank the Hill Country Amber which was an organic beer. This was my least favorite as it seemed to have no aroma and was fairly bland but my 3 friends (who drink American Light beers) liked it best. My favorite was the Hop Zombie.  It is a very nice IPA that has a citrus flavor to it. While I liked the beers here, most of my group thought they all had a bit too many hops.

We only ate appetizers, but we had the Sausage sampler, which came with regular and jalapeno sausage. The regular sausage was good, but the jalapeno sausage was great! We also shared the Redneck Road Kill, which is a kettle chips with bbq chopped beef, jalapenos and cheese. It was great also. Though we only had the 2 appetizers, the BBQ that we tasted was excellent.

The atmosphere is very good also. It is very busy and they have live music at night.  A lot of well known musical acts show up at their Lake Travis location. The service was good and we didn’t have to wait to be served and the beers came out cold and the food came out fast. Overall a very good choice if you are in Austin.
