Prices are going up on everything these days, especially craft beer. And I’ve definitely been feeling the pain on my wallet supporting local breweries around Austin and beyond. I feel it’s hard to find a pint under $6 these days… unless it’s happy hour!
The best hour, IMHO.
So that’s why I made this list of the best brewery happy hours. Well also I really needed a resource like this.
Below you’ll find any Austin brewery or brewpub that has a happy hour, along with details listed and my thoughts. I will try to keep this updated on a regular basis, but these kinds of details can change suddenly.
Austin’s Best Brewery Happy Hours
On Wednesdays the brewpub also features Hump Day Happy Hour featuring $1 off select beer of the week from 4-10pm.
Mondays and Tuesdays, North Austin’s Celis Brewery offers half off beers from 3-6pm.
Hold Out Brewing
Monday – Friday from 3-6 PM, Hold Out Brewing features what just might be this city’s best brewery happy hour. You’ll find $5 pints, $6 sangria, plus $6 classic (and veggie!!) burgers.
Wednesdays through Fridays from 3-6 PM you can get an authentic German experience with Koko’s Bavarian and their happy hour. Fill up on $5 house beers, $6 pretzels and/or $7 brats.
Last Stand Brewing
Happy Hour at Last Stand Brewing offers $2 off beers Mondays through Fridays from 3-6 PM. On Mondays too, any large pizza is only $9. Making this brewpub a great option for those living down south!
Weekday happy hour at Oasis Brewing comes with a stunning view of Lake Travis. Running from 2-4 PM, you’ll get $3 pints and $5 snacks.
Pinthouse has a pretty sweet daily happy hour at all their locations. At their “Pizza” locations happy hour runs Monday through Friday, from 4-6 PM. During which you’ll save $1 off of all pints of PHP beers as well as a $1 off their Beer Mate bites.
At Pinthouse Pizza locations they also offer a unique lunch special that includes a personal pizza, side salad, and a drink. If you sub that drink for a Pinthouse beer, you’ll save $1.25 off the list price.
Pinthouse Brewing’s happy hour is a bit different. The days and hours are the same as the other locations. As well as the $1 off pints, but for food, they offer instead a $1 off their onion dip or hummus dip.
