This bright, welcoming tasting room will lure you in; the beers and food will keep you coming back.
This small batch brewery has a visually stunning tasting room that boasts a live tree, a beautiful mural by a local artist, and a refurbished Austin Mini hanging on the wall (seriously). The two-story space is very welcoming with big windows bringing in lots of light. And the addition of a new patio is an added bonus.
Beer-wise, Bright Eye features a fresh, ever-changing variety of innovative beers served right from the tanks they were made in. Food is also a big focus here — the menu includes pizzas baked to order, burgers and sandwiches, and other unique dishes including a Cobb salad that features prosciutto, chorizo, and smoked gouda.
One of the co-owners also established the Red Beard Cafe just down Tranquille Road, and another was one of the co-founders of the Noble Pig Brewpub downtown, so you know that a lot of thought and careful planning went into making this place as good as it is.
