Austin's First Vegan Gastropub, The Beer Plant, is Here!
Tonight marks the grand opening of The Beer Plant, the first all-vegan gastropub in Austin, Texas. The city is already renowned for its variety of all-vegan or vegan-friendly eats around town, but this restaurant will be a bit different. The spot hopes to invite plant-eaters and omnivores, alike, with its impressive menu and selection of craft beers, wine, and hip cocktails. The Beer Plant will also offer nitro coffee, locally made kombucha, and yaupon tea (a naturally caffeinated plant native to the US).
The menu will include tantalizing choices, such as the Hops & Chips Plate, beer-battered hearts of palm, hand cut chips, and cabbage slaw with Cajun remoulade, and Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower with bleu “chz” dip. Co-owner Ray McMackin said about the space:
“We wanted to create a place where craft beer and vegetables could share the spotlight.”
The Beer Plant is located in old west Austin, on Windsor Road in the former Austin Java space. I know I’ve already updated my Must Eat travel list – how about you?
