Good Chemistry, Great Beer: The Brewtorium Opens in North Austin
Location: 6015 Dillard Circle in Austin
Something special has been brewing in North Austin the last few years, and its finally ready for public consumption. Well worth the wait, The Brewtorium Brewery & Kitchen is Austin’s newest casual kid-friendly and dog-friendly neighborhood beer garden, now serving up good chemistry and great beer for the community to enjoy.
Chris Rauschuber, an award-winning home-brewer, and Whitney Roberts, a business development and marketing maven, are the power couple behind The Brewtorium and actually had their very first date at a pub. Their great chemistry was sparked by a shared passion for craft beer, which they credit as the galvanizing force that brought them together and prompted them to brew up the concept for The Brewtorium.
“Something truly magical happens when the right elements come together to create something that is greater than the sum of its parts,” the couple says. True to their word, Chris and Whitney have built an all-star lineup for The Brewtorium team, including Kristie Leims-Dunne, their General Manager who built her career at several Austin notables like Texican Cafe and North by Northwest, and Dave Arcos, their innovative Executive Chef who brings a modern approach to traditional brewpub food.
The brewpub features German-inspired bites like beer brats on fresh-baked pretzel buns, Flammkuchen (a Southern German-style pizza on house-made dough), and delicious vegan and vegetarian selections. Each entree pairs with one of their house beers, encouraging a holistic experience between the beer and food.
The Brewtorium is introducing several new beers for their opening, including:
One Small Step, Pale Lager (16 IBU, 4.2% ABV): Easy drinkin’ with a crisp hop finish
Cumulonimbus, Belgian Witbier (9 IBU, 4.8% ABV): Soft wheat, citrus, and honey notes
Deeper Shade of Sol, Session IPA (55 IBU, 5.1% ABV): Piney, resiny, and citrusy, with a pronounced hop bite
A Beer Named Sue, IPA (57 IBU, 6.3% ABV): Mango, pine, earthy, aggressively hopped
You can also expect to see a Porter, Belgian Dubbel, and Vienna Lager on their tap wall soon, as Chris ramps up their brewery production.
