On a sunny weekend afternoon in Austin, Texas, there’s no better place to be than at one of the city’s many breweries. As an official Austinite, I’ll give you the scoop: Lazarus Brewery is my absolute favorite to visit, and for good reasons.

Reason #1: Incredible beer with a wide variety of choices that range from classics such as pale ales and IPAs to unique seasonal brews and Belgians. Lazarus Brewery has more than sixteen taps available, filled with nothing but rich Lazarus brews inside every one. Brewmaster Matt Couch, formerly of Victory Brewing in Pennsylvania, takes time, effort, and passion to create them all; and Austin locals rejoice with each new addition. One of my personal favorites is the Blushing Bride — an orange blossom honey tripel. Light in color and bright in flavor, it’s my go-to on a sunny day to cool me off and keep me awake. The 10% alcohol content doesn’t hurt, either.

Reason #2: Fresher-than-fresh tacos. Served on a humble cafeteria tray atop parchment paper, each one comes in a warm flour tortilla, filled heartily with the protein of your choice, then absolutely smothered with chopped onion and flavorful cilantro. You can’t go wrong with any variation; when we last visited, we were blown away byBlack Bean Tacos and Carnitas tacos. Don’t forget to squeeze your lime on top! To follow the tacos, we indulged in guacamole and chips to share. The guacamole is creamy, redolent of herbal flavor, and just chunky enough to scoop into large tortilla chips.

Reason #3: A relaxing indoor/outdoor space to sit in. With its bright peacock-blue exterior, Lazarus is hard to miss when you walk past it on the street, A spacious patio with an abundance of seating invites you in and feels homey, like sitting on a friend’s back porch. Indoors, the bar is always crowded with customers who are relaxed and happy to be here. When you visit Lazarus Brewery, it’s normal to stay for more than a few hours soaking up sun, catching up with people important to you, and enjoying time off.

The next time you catch yourself thinking “A beer sounds nice right now”, drop everything and head to Lazarus Brewery in Austin, Texas.
