Nestled in a quiet North Austin neighborhood, with a romantic outdoor shower and yoga loft, the Bed and Brew boasts local craft beer or homebrew in the fridge, multiple outdoor seating areas, BBQ smoker grill, and chiminea all set in an award winning organic garden. Central Texas has one of the most active and unique craft brewing scenes in the country; within 5 miles of our location there are eight beer-brewing establishments and the best homebrew supply store in Texas. In Austin, there are at least 25 breweries and brewpubs; brewers at each of these locations see beer through a unique and interesting lens.
Standard amenities include craft beer or homebrew in the full-sized fridge on arrival and chilled pint glasses in the freezer. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the gardens and use available herbs and veggies in their culinary explorations. Each night's stay includes organic coffee and tea. Visitors use plush bathrobes and greywater friendly sundries for use in the shower, whose drain feeds into the greens and herb gardens.
Convenient public transport is nearby. The #5 bus which takes you to the University of Texas and downtown Austin stops at the corner of Woodrow and Dartmouth, and Metro Rapid buses and the Metro Rail Crestview station are just blocks away. Close enough to conveniently reach all Austin festivals (SXSW, ACL, and others), but far enough away to ensure a peaceful night's rest.
The Bed and Brew neighborhood (Crestview) was once cotton fields on the border of the Blackland Prairie and the Balcones Escarpment on the edge of the Texas Hill Country. Our property has over 250 native plants as well as fruit trees an herb garden and is a registered Wildlife Habitat.
