We come to AGBG just about once a week. The space is open and outdoors with lots of space between tables. We still have a bit of COVIDxiety but at AGBG we are very comfortable that the risk is not significant. Plus its dog friendly so we get our dog fix once a week!

Oh and the beer and pizza is excellent! Remember when it used to be about the food? :)

One of the very best breweries in Austin, the beer was incredible as always.
The gluten-free pizza blew my wife and I away on this visit!
Service was top-notch and we bought a case of beer to go.
Highly recommended!

Good times. Always love the ambiance and COVID hasn’t done much to impact that. This was our first time ordering non pizza items, which I must say were solid.

Definitely coming back in a few weeks or so!

Fastest drink service I have ever received. Considering we only have 2 hours to keep our table, I was concerned about not getting all of the food and drinks that we wanted. We were greeted so quickly and every drink came out in under a minute. The food was delicious. My only qualm was with the drink menu. It was slightly confusing that all of the beers and their descriptions were listed underneath the box showing the few beers that were offered. We were under the impression that there were about 20 beers available for ordering. Other than that, fantastic experience. Thank you! We will be back!
