A "collaborative spot for craft beer and brewers" called Pinthouse Pizza Brewpub is coming to Burnet Road in 2012, reports @Zymurology via Austin Beer Guide via BeerNews.org. Brewer Joe Mohrfeld from Colorado's Odell Brewing Company is the man behind the pub. He tells BeerNews:
I am going to be leaving Odell at the end of January to work on starting a brewpub in Austin TX named “Pinthouse Pizza” with some friends who have been working on the concept for the better part of this year. Our hope is to not only showcase my beers, but also other craft beers from the Austin area and from other friend’s breweries as they come into the Austin market, it will be a very collaborative spot for craft beer and brewers. We are hoping to be open mid 2012, and I will be brewing on a 7bbl system with a 10gal pilot system.They'll be going in next to the Simplicity Wine Bar just south of 49th Street.
