Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden

One of the best

If you like beer and meat, you’ll enjoy Austin, Texas. If you REALLY like beer and REALLY like meat, you’ll fall in love with Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden in Austin. 

Located smack in the middle of the popular bar district on Rainey Street, Banger’s is recognized by locals as the ultimate beer destination, with over two hundred beers on draft and another fifty in cans and bottles. It is the bar with the largest draft system in the state of Texas.

Sausages are juicy and fresh. Each week, Banger’s cranks out over two thousand pounds of sausage by hand, right here. With over thirty varieties to choose from, there’s something to satisfy everyone. 

Although I love beer AND meat, my favorite way to do Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden is on Sundays. More specifically, the Big Band Brunch, hosted each and every Sunday from 10am to 4pm. A word of advice: when you decide to meander to a Banger’s Sunday brunch, be ready for a few-hour-long wait. I promise you, it’s worth it. While you wait, listen to outdoor live music, order a huge fresh-baked pretzel, or grab a Man-Mosa (an entire bottle of champagne topped with a splash of orange juice). The few hours you spend with friends and family waiting on your brunch table are when some of the best memories are made. 

Brunchtime Banger’s Benny is a thick English muffin piled high with braised pork belly, a poached egg, and creamy homemade hollandaise sauce. As if that wasn’t enough to stack atop an English muffin, it is crowned with a huge handful of crisp shoestring potatoes (with a dusting of chipotle seasoning for good measure). If you’re seeking a rich and satisfying twist on a traditional Eggs Benedict, this is the dish for you.

Order a classic breakfast and you get a half-pound of house-made bacon, a pair of eggs, buttered sourdough toast, and freshly prepared seasonal preserves.

I can guarantee you’ll leave Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden feeling full, happy, and maybe just a bit buzzed. Be sure to give it a visit next time you wake up with a hankering for brunch.
