The long awaited taproom and biergarten is now open! Live Oak Brewing Company first announced plans in the Fall of 2014 and the much anticipated new brewery, biergarten, and taproom is now open. Live Oak’s new home is nestled alongside the Colorado River in Del Valle across the highway from the airport. The taproom is spacious and boasts an impressive “one of a kind bar top” made from a single Live Oak tree from the property. The piece de resistance is the multi-leveled biergarten on the sprawling grounds. The space is shaded by the trees that share their name with the brewery. Austin has some great biergartens, but this may be the finest yet. Especially considering their future plans…
LOBC plans to add two additional biergartens and have a disc golf course up in the near future. The brewery will feature rotating food trucks. The beers are ample and well-priced. The service is friendly and the staff tried discourage the omnipresent Austin bar queue that haunts many establishments.
This taproom just made trips to and from the airport a lot more interesting. Congrats to the OGs of the Austin craft beer scene! This is a long time coming.
