Wright Bros. Brew & Brew
500 San Marcos St. #105, 512/493-0963
Hours: Daily from 7am-12am
Offers 39 taps of craft beer, a full espresso bar, Easy Tiger pastries, and a selection of sandwiches and charcuterie.
East-siders come to play pool, or to flex their cerebral muscle with the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz on Wednesday nights. With a full menu of sandwiches and soup and an encyclopedic beer selection, it definitely feels more like a cozy pub than a destination bar. But people come out raving about the menu: Crisp salads, and a crazy sandwich selection. Power outlets in half of the booths, and an amazing range of beers keep the place busy until closing.
