Microbreweries are everywhere nowadays. Many are tucked away, almost hidden, in areas of town where you might not expect late-night society. Austin has it's share of microbreweries, each with it's on twist on brewing. Some brew coffee as well as beer. Others offer their version of European or even Japanese beers.
