Blue Owl Brewing is on East Cesar Chavez. Here you’ll find the most sour of the beers at the east Austin breweries. The Professor Black, a sour cherry stout, is super popular with beer lovers. Even if you don’t know how you feel about sour beers, their expert staff will help you pick a flight that will make your taste buds smile!


Austin Eastciders’ Collaboratory

Prefer a cider? Austin Eastciders’ Collaboratory is the tap room for Austin Eastciders, located on Springdale Road. This is the perfect place to sample one of their well-balanced hard ciders. The Ruby Red Grapefruit is refreshing and tart. Got friends who demand beer? Friends and Allies Brewing is conveniently located next door where they serve up their brews that combine West Coast brewing techniques with east Austin culture. It’s two east Austin breweries in one!


Zilker Brewing Company


Visit Zilker Brewing Company on East 6th Street for a wide-range of accessible brews. They even have a “Parks & Rec” beer with a portion of the sales going to the Austin Parks Foundation. Many of the east Austin breweries give back to the Austin community, either with donations of money or volunteer hours. 


Lazarus Brewing Company

Want food AND beer? Lazarus Brewing Company serves craft beers that can only be purchased on the premises, as well as homemade root beer, kombucha, espresso, and street tacos. Don’t miss the beautiful stained glass over the large patio that’s perfect for whiling away the afternoon.


Hops and Grain Brewing


The oldest of the east Austin breweries, Hops and Grain Brewing specializes in brewing craft beers sustainably. They also believe in giving back to the community and donate money and volunteer time to several Austin nonprofits.
