Flew in from out of town and was greeted by a wonderful enthusiastic staff willing to discuss everything from beer, food, music and Texas culture. Friendly and informative, this staff has passion for their job.
Great selection of the rare hard to find tap beers from Texas and elsewhere.
The menu was small but everything was delicious.
They have a beer trading program so bring in some stuff from out of state, and trade for what you cant get back home.
For the beer/food enthusiast Hopfields is a must when touring Austin's bar scene. I will come back here every time I come to Austin.

I ended up at Hopfields chasing a beer I tasted at Independence brewery and I'm so glad I did. One of my favorite beer pubs in Austin, especially thanks to their attention to IPAs. Every time I'm there I get to taste something new and I love it. The food is very good too. Order some burgers and fries with your beer; you won't regret it.

I stopped by here during a recent visit to Austin, based on a recommendation for a vegetarian-friendly place with craft beer. (That’s all I ask for, folks… only because there’s nothing for me to eat at all the amazing BBQ places in the world.) And the food and beer did not disappoint. There was a wall full of tap handles with local and familiar treats, with pours and pricing clearly marked. No cask engine but it might apparently be in the works. (Yes, I asked.) Plus it looks like they’re developing a serious drink program here, judging by the cocktail list and some overheard conversations. Nosey, nosey!
Based on the same recommendation I went right to the ratatouille, although it looks like there’s a number of snackables—a locally-sourced cheese plate, frites, salads—for those who aren’t interested in the burgers.
I sat at the bar and found service to be efficient, but somewhat inconsistent. Upon entering and taking the place in—do I seat myself, is there room at the bar, how can I find out what’s on tap and on the menu before I commit?—I bellied up at the bar and …waited. It wasn’t until a friendly couple to my left explained ‘how things work’ to me—grab a printed menu since those are updated, beer is listed on the far wall—that I figured out what to do. Which was fine, just confusing for my first visit. However, not long after another couple came in and sat down to my right—and a server met them at the bar, brought them menus and explained the specials of the day. It was such a glaring contrast as to be all too apparent and just the sort of thing that you’d hope they work out among their staff. Clearly, another visit is in order!

I had lunch here yesterday and really enjoyed the food and beer selection.
Food was very tasty. I had a burger and fries and it was very good. Not your typical burger and was cooked perfectly medium rare.
The beer selection was great and I especially like how they have what's on tap displayed. On one wall they have hand painted wooden placards that can easily be switched out if a tap changes. The placards also display the size of the pour and the price. Awesome.
My only complaint is that there is no wait service. You have to order from the bar. Since it was a late lunch this was no issue since their were only a few people in the place but I can see it being an issue for me on a busy evening.
I didn't see any highchairs for kids but I would come back with my one year old if they had them(before 7pm though).
