When you hear the name Wright Bros., you think of two siblings dedicated to the provocative thought of aviation. In Austin, the name Wright Bros. is known for giving flight to a movement based on a simple notion: serve the best beers alongside the best coffee in the city.
On the corner of 5th and San Marcus is where you’ll find Brew & Brew, committed to the vision of good beans and tasty beers in one harmonious setting. Come thirsty and post up to focus on green chalk slates reminiscent of a vintage baseball scoreboard that are marked and hung to assist you in the selection of over thirty brews on tap.
Austin’s Wright Bros. might not be known for inventing aviation, but the concept they deliver is soaring, and it’s the kind of place you definitely want to land every day.
In true Austin fashion, a majority of what is available is from breweries that are native to the city and state, and they move quick, as the variety offered is known to change daily. Ask for the infamous Yellow Rose, the smoothest blonde ale in town. One kiss from this ale and you’ll finally understand what Seal was singing about all those years.
If you need a pick-me-up, they have you covered with Flat Track and Heart Roasters coffee, perfect for an afternoon remedy while settling into the industrial lounge area. Pop in next door and meander through Byron and Blue, a general store that has objects from independent makers and artists.
Don’t forget to snag a growler to go of your choice beer, because chances are with Brew & Brew’s faithful following, it’s going fast. Austin’s Wright Bros. might not be known for inventing aviation, but the concept they deliver is soaring, and it’s the kind of place you definitely want to land every day.
