The Austin area is awash in delicious beers.

Live Oak is unbelievable. Each beer they make is perfectly balanced with consistent flavor. I can't wait til they start bottling. Til then a kegerator with their Pilz is a must if you don't have access to the middle of Texas.

Real Ale in nearby Blanco is their equal. I'm not crazy about their flagship Fireman's 4 but their other beers are out of sight. A session with Devil's Backbone is one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon.

Independence has really improved their consistency. When I need a heavy dose of hops I head straight to the tavern for their Stash IPA.

While Uncle Billy's barbecue is nothing to get excited about they do have Brian Peters as their brewmaster. I haven't had a beer yet of his that wasn't a careful take on whatever classic style he's chosen to brew at the moment.

512 Brewing Company is the new entry in Austin's brewing field. Their Pecan Porter is delicious. It's inspired a friend of mine to start baking with beer. Pecan Porter Banana Nut loaf anyone?

Who's doing their fair share of Texas beer drinking?
