The award-winning brewers at Uncle Billy’s, Amos Lowe and Brian “Swifty” Peters, are departing to start their own brewery, slated to open in January 2013. The South Austin brew pub will serve hand-crafted pizza and beer on 10 taps in a music-hall-style beer garden.
“We’re going for the Armadillo World Headquarters vibe with New York-style pizza like Home Slice,” Peters says.
The brewers will make several varieties of beer with a mainstay lineup of pilsner, pale ale and IPA. They plan to have a small canning line to sell their beer off premise. The owners are shooting for a location at Lamar Boulevard and Oltorf Street.
