St. Elmo Brewing Co., Austin’s newest brewery, will open in mid-November, followed by a grand opening party on Saturday, December 3 at 11 a.m. with music, activities, and beer, of course.
Update, November 9: St. Elmo is now officially open.
Run by former Austin Beerwork staffers Bryan Winslow and Tim Bullock, St. Elmo will focus on three year-round beers: Carl (Kolsch-style ale), Chico (American pale ale), and Angus (dry stout), alongside other rotating options. The starting lineup includes Slater (American IPA), Dampf (hefe-barley), and Jan (German IPA). Future beer styles range from kettle sours to lagers. The hoppy beverages will be created with the brewery’s 15 barrel brewing system.
The St. Elmo road space will include an indoor beer hall and outdoor beer garden for drinking and music. Food will be served courtesy of Southeast Asian food truck Soursop. Chef Teddy Bricker (formerly of La Condesa) will whip up with roti tacos, wings, pandan pie, pork belly fried rice, and more. Since St. Elmo is brewing anyone, coffee will be served (including pour overs), along with the brewery’s own mineral water called Wholly Water, and housemade soda.
Once fully open, hours for the brewery and food truck will be from 4 to 11 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday; until midnight on Friday; 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturday; and noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
St. Elmo opens as the first business within mixed-use development The Yard on St. Elmo Road. Other neighbors will include whiskey distilling Still. Nearby will be public market Saint Elmo Market District (which can be confusing), home to Saxon Pub's relocation.
