Explore: Easy Tiger Bake Shop & Beer Garden

This bar may not be new to this group, but it's new to me! I spotted it as I was strolling 6th St. during the Pecan St. Festival earlier this month. It's in such a charming little building with the main entrance at street level and the patio in the lower level, right by the water (Waller Creek). Very cool atmosphere to say the least, AND it recently made Food and Wine Magazine's list of America's Best Beer Gardens.

 

 

Here's a synopsis from Localeur.com:

"When Easy Tiger opened up last year, it brought a refreshing breeze of beer garden to the cluster of douchebaggery and shot bars that is Sixth Street. More than just a “beer bar,” this place offers spirits as well, including a long list of reserve whiskeys. Located just west of the highway, Easy Tiger’s rotating selection of beers is impressive and well-chosen. Plus this spot offers tasty baked treats like big pretzels paired with “homemade beer cheese.” (I still don’t quite understand it, but I know I want more of it.) You enter into the street level bakery before descending to the downstairs pub. The outdoor seating area is also lowered from the Sixth Street nonsense and overlooks Waller Creek. Another nice touch at Easy Tiger – enjoy your pint with a game of ping-pong near the waters’ edge."


So, come explore this beer garden with us on Friday, June 21st!

    I have just received confirmation that Easy Tiger will be reserving 5 picnic tables for us! RSVPs are now re-open. :)

    All, I've closed the event to new RSVPs, because the venue has limited seating and I don't want the group to have to get too spread out. I'll be getting there early to get us a couple of tables to ensure that those who plan on eating can have a place to sit! See you all tomorrow :-D

    Where's the best place to park at downtown?

    June 20, 2013

    • Mike C.

      Under I-35 since Easy Tiger is pretty much at near the corner of 6th and I-35

      June 20, 2013

  • Chris S.

    If you want covered parking, the chase building isn't bad. Central to most things downtown

    June 20, 2013

    • Mike C.

      Chase Building is far from Easy Tiger. You would be better off parking under 35

    If anyone wants to carpool from North Austin (I'll be coming south on 35 from exit 247), I've got room for 3 in my car.

    This place looks lovely.
    I watched Close Encounters last night on a 28ft. screen and then I won a contest for my foil hat* They're here.

    I hear there's amazing Pretzels here. There's very few things I wouldn't do for a great pretzel.

      I feel the same way about beer cheese.

      May 18, 2013

    • Brian

      If you have the pretzel with beer cheese (which I recommend) also get a side of their home made mustard (which is the best thing in my opinion)

    This place is excellent. I used to work downtown and walk here for lunch quite often. It's too far out to know if I'll be able to make it out.

    Funny, we wandered in off the street during the Pecan St Festival too!

      I honestly don't think I would have ever noticed it if I hadn't walked right by it. I had driven by there so many times. Can't wait to check it out!
