Live Oak

3301 East Fifth Street, Austin, TX, 78702

Live Oak’s brewmaster-owner Chip McElroy successfully merges Austin’s hip culture with a traditional brewing regimen. More than ten years after opening, the brewery still sells only draft beer.

Their classic Pilz is produced with an old-fashioned method that uses a decoction mash.

Bright golden, with a flowery nose showcasing Saaz hops. Soft and slightly oily palate; dry, bitter finish.
