- 2017: Critics Best Bach on Tap (4th Tap Brewing Co-op; Lazarus Brewing Company)
While the ABGB remains a favorite South Austin pizza and pint hangout, with a large outdoor patio and rotation of on-premise signature brews, its inside stage has become a regular stop for local bands since opening in 2013. Its 270-person inside and laid-back, shared-table vibe provides excellent sound, generous floor space in front of the stage, and a casual, family-friendly atmosphere that can accommodate both fans of the bands or just the beer. The parking lot fills quickly.

Black Star is the world’s first cooperatively-owned and worker self-managed brewpub. Start with the fried jalapeños, or a cornbread, and try the sandwiches or dinner entrées as you work through the local brews.
