The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.
1305 W. Oltorf, 512/298-2242
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.
