There’s very little tap beer in East Austin. I-35 serves as a sort of hops and grain-based neutral ground/line of demarcation, as Austin’s draft beer selection dwindles as you migrate eastward from downtown.

Then there’s Gourmand’s; a sweet, neighborhood bar with plump sandwiches, not so plump waitresses/bartenders, and a healthy selection of local beers available by the pour.

We had a Scrumptious Chef cook’s meeting there recently to hammer out some future pop up menus and partook in the pub’s new-ish patio.
