Great Beers, Great Service, Cool Spot!
May 2019
I have tried some Blue Owl beers before making a trip to Austin but I was excited to check out the brewery; Cool little spot with great bartenders. You buy a glass and the beer is free! I'm guessing it has something to do with zoning and liquor (brewery/brewpub) laws. Definitely worth checking out when you are in Austin.

Sour beers for days

What a treat. Pay for your glass and choose from four different sours. There are several glass sizes you can choose from. The beers are fantastic!

Great Sour Beer! Great Service
Nov 2019
I was really surprised by this brewery, I hadn't had much experience with sour beer. I happened to visit on a busy night. One of the owners personally walked me through their selections and poured me samples of what a beginner to sour beer might like. I must say I really liked them. I will be back the next time I'm in Austin. When I was out that night I noticed the Blue Owl label in many bars. So that's what I drank. I highly recommend giving this brewery a try.

I love sour beers, so this was a must stop for me. However, I've never had sours like this! I loved that you got to keep a glass with your flight!

Longest wait ever for a tasting of beer...............
May 2019 • Couples
Don't come here if you don't like sour beer. The beer here is good if you like sour stuff. I even tried the one that is the least sour and liked that. We were trying to hit a few of the breweries but that was hard because they took forever to serve us.

We literally got a tasting. The girl who was working went in the back to wash down some stuff......why would you do that if you have a room full of customers? The guy was constantly on his phone. Then the both of them started talking to each other. Like ummmmmmmmmmmm We had to be waiting for at least 10 minutes. We were ready to leave. That was the longest I have ever waited for beer..... I would not go back I want to try other breweries in the area.

A Must to Visit!
Apr 2019 • Couples
My husband & I stopped by here with our Bike & Brew tour, me, not being much of a drinker. And then I tried sour beer for the first time and it was amazingly tasty. We sampled the seasonal favorites-- an incredible raspberry beer-- Double Dapper Devil-- and a great black cherry beer, which I can't remember the name of. I am now searching for sour beer in my own Southern California (they did say that Blue Owl was going to start distributing in Southern California-- I just got back and am still looking). My husband has always been a beer drinker, had heard of sour beer, but never thought to try it. We both loved the place. Well worth the visit.

Sour Beers only

You do not buy a beer, you buy a glass and they give you refills that you want to try. It is a nice looking place, with great staff who are friendly and knowledgable. Blue Owl is close to several great food choices. One in our party really likes sours the rest not so much. If you love sours this is the place to go. For the non sour drinkers they cherry stout was a winner

Love some sour beers!

I love Blue Owl. Their beers are fantastic, cute little spot on the east side of Austin. There are plenty of places to grab a snack and head to the brewery for a tasty sour beer. Place does not disappoint.

Just the best... 👍👍👍👍

The concept of buying a couple tasters and keeping the glass...the open brewery hours to wonder around... The pm point screen prints for sale and the friendly staff... On all the places I've been I've never appreciated the effort more. Well worth a visit - the beers are exciting and different but the catch is they're all spurs. So have an open mind or be willing to make a weird face!
