The (512) brew crew makes "small handcrafted batches" of four varieties, with special releases popping up seasonally. For us, the Pecan Porter is the highlight. A delicious, thick meal in itself, it's perfect for winter weather. If specialty and seasonal are your thing, try the Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter. Think chocolate, coffee, whisky, pecan, and vanilla. Though the (512) family is available on draft at many bars around town, we recommend touring the brewery. The open house happens every few months with a free tour and samples. Be kind to your tour guide and get in on a pre-release seasonal tasting.
