Hazy Ipa’s In Austin

Pinthouse Brewing

Pinthouse is known to be a little (well actually, very) obsessed with hops. If you’re looking for something both fruity and bitter, try out their Electric Jellyfish for the perfect citrus and tropical flavors that will keep you both refreshed and buzzed. What a good combo! We also love the Counting Stars Hazy IPA with tastes of ripe mango, gooseberry, and orange juice.

The Taproom not only supplies our favorite Hazy IPA’s like the Default Emotion and Tender Robot but some delicious bites too! Try tacos from Pueblo Viejo, BBQ from Distant Relatives, pizza from Side Eye Pizza, Beef Bulgogi Mi from Smokin Banh Mi, and ice cream from Bésame.

Sure we enjoy a good Hazy IPA but don’t sleep on the Strawberry Sangrias! They’re offered during Brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. Enjoy a glass or tow with a yummy Brussel Sprout Sweet Potato Hash, you’ll fall in love!
