great! - Edit

Wonderful drinks and food. This was my guy's first experience with vegan food and he went from being very hesitant to totally open to vegan food! He said "its just like real food" lol

good food - Edit

Our first experience at beer plant was not great but that was only because our waiter was rude . ( she still works there ) Other three times we ate there we had great experience, both with food/drinks and staff . Would go back , but just hope not to get the same waitress we got first time .

Pros: great food, cute decor, owners are very lovely people

Cons: pricey, not customer satisfaction oriented

Nice Vegan Restaurant - Edit

This is one of our regulars. I don't drink beer so I don't feel like I get the full experience coming here, but their Buffalo cauliflower and their cheese platter appetizers are amazing! Other than that, their entrees are kind of bland in my opinion. The service is always great and the atmosphere is very nice. After you eat here you can go adopt a dog or cat at the Austin Pets Alive locations on either side of it!

Flawless - Edit

My fiance and I tried this place for the first time today and OH MY GOODNESS!! The Purple Pig was amazing. I don't even think I've had a REAL BACON BLT that tasted this good. As a person newly trying veganism, The Beer Plant is absolutely going to help me stick to it. I can't recommend it enough

Great Austin vibes - Edit

Visited as a vegan and omnivore family. Excellent food all around. Great prices and friendly staff. Live music on Sunday afternoons on the covered outdoor patio. Reservations are recommended during busier hours. Loads of parking outside. If anything, the menu could be more extensive.

The Beer Plant - Edit

I dined at The Beer Plant for the fist time on Sunday. I had brunch. It was excellent. All food is vegan, fresh, and made to order. I had the migas platter which consisted of well seasoned and prepared tofu scramble, fried potatoes and home-made ketchup, sauteed mushroom, sausage patty, broiled tomato, cannelloni beans, and sourdough toast. Delicious! I also had the ginger beer which as flavorful and tart, The ambiance was relaxed and stylish. Beautiful restaurant. I checked out their dinner menu while there and will go back for dinner as soon as possible. Reasonably priced. Everyone said the beer is good, too, but I didn't try it because I was driving. Any restaurant that makes its own ketchup has got to be good.

Pros: Well preparedvegan cuisine, Fresh ingredients; wide selection of dishes, reasonably priced

The Best - Edit

We're currently on a road trip and we were desperately looking for something like this place. The food was amazing, the ambiance is loud but not overwhelming and the service was good.
Btw those BBQ cauliflower wings are a MUST.
Best restaurant from our road trip in the South USA.

Pros: cauliflowers wings, beer selection

Cons: could be to loud for some

Many wrinkles to iron out - Edit

I like the concept and menu, but the service was really lacking. We came in around happy hour and waited more than 5 minutes at the host stand before anyone came to greet us. The restaurant was half empty, and servers, hosts, and bartenders were milling around the whole time, but no one thought to seat us (or even acknowledge our existence).

We finally got seated outside, but we sat for ten minutes with one drink menu and one food menu before the waitress came to take our drink orders. Unsurprisingly, we weren't ready to order, as our party of eight had trouble using a single set of menus. The waitress apologized and said she would be right back with more menus.

Unfortunately, that took another 15 minutes (no exaggeration!), so by that time we were able to cobble together our orders. The food also came out slowly and staggered. Everyone had scarfed down their appetizers and entrees before my sister even received her meal. I think we even got a second round of buffalo cauliflower wings before she got to dig in.

I don't want to be too harsh on our server (perhaps she's new). Plus, it wasn't just her - the entire service experience fell short for us.

I really wanted to like this place, but I'm quite discouraged and disappointed. They definitely have some wrinkles to iron out. I might give them another try if I'm feeling adventurous and have a lot of time on my hands. After all, the food was actually pretty good when we finally got it.

Pros: Nice selection, Good food

Cons: Slow service, Inattentive

Everything we ordered (ploughman's, buffalo cauliflower, bang fire, winter pie, el jardinero, big bend) was totally toothsome. You won't be disappointed.

Delicious vegan gastropub favorites :) - Edit

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the opening of The Beer Plant, Austin's first vegan gastropub. The inside is on the smaller side, with flickering candles and dark colors. I sat at the long wooden bar, and ordered the small Ploughman's plate and the Hop's and Chips. The Ploughman's is a vegan charcuterie with seitan, garlic butter, nut cheese, tomato chutney, pickled veg and sourdough bread. This was absolutely amazing...there were 3 types of cheese and the spicy one was the best thing on the plate. This was such a treat to have this popular pub platter made vegan! The Hop's and chips were hearts of palm in a light beer batter (made wth local ATX brewery beer Pearl Snap) deep fried (it also came with crispy fries and an awesome flavorful remoulade). I didn't order any drinks, but they have taps upon taps of craft beers! Overall, this was some great food and I highly recommend it!

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly Staff
