    So I just heard that this place is going to be opening in Round Rock soon, and was wondering if anyone has any more info on them.

    Looking at their web site HERE, they have 1 location open in Florida, and are opening about 10 more there, and looks like the Round Rock location will be their first foray into Texas.

    40-60 rotating beers on tap, plus a lot of bottles. They also do wine and cigars, and live music. Looking at the beer list at their 1 open location, it looks pretty varied and pretty darn good.

    Between this place, In-n-Out Burger, and Costco all being built near me, I might never need to drive into Austin again. :p

    Sounds like it might be pretty awesome.

    Went to the alehouse yesterday and had a 512 Tripel. Mmmm good. They were out of adelberts though, and only had an empty Naked Nun tap which kind of worried me as they had 5 adelberts taps last time i was in.

    I have been to the one near Tampa every time i visit my sister down there and it is very nice. If they run it like that one, i would be very happy to have one near me.

    Good to have something good up there. I will definitely try it out whenever I venture that far north.

    Im the product manager for Brass Tap, and have been working on setting up the draft and bottle list for the Round Rock location. Looks like they're going to feature a bunch of local brews (something we strive for as a company), as well as plenty of great American craft brews. I'm personally looking forward to the Deschuttes, since we dont get them in Florida. This is going to be a beautiful bar, run by people who genuinely care about craft beer.
