Pecan Street Brewing is a place where you can meet and make friends while chilling in a casual atmosphere, just like they did in the old days. It is located in the heart of the town in the old Blanco County Supply building, which was established in the early 50’s. Originally it was a hardware and supply store and actually the gathering place where folks would get together, drink coffee and swap stories about the happenings of the town. Now the gathering continues but the beverage of choice is a nice cold one, to be enjoyed in the restaurant, beer garden or while dancing to one of the many live bands that are featured every weekend.
Pecan Street Brewing is certainly a local favorite on the historic town square. The exterior of the building is impressive itself and when you walk in, you can see a wood-fired oven in the back left corner that fills the restaurant with the mouth-watering smell of pizza. The dining area is also on the left, but the star attraction is the bar on the right with all the house-made brews. You will find a very pleasant atmosphere and a welcoming staff which will ensure that you are comfortable and that you have everything you need.
If you love beer and it’s your first visit, you must order the flight. It gets you a 3-oz pour of eight different beers. This selection will allow you to try almost all of the varieties on the house menu, which changes frequently. The signature Screw Loose Blonde is a fine choice for your tray, as is the Ten Penny Nail Ale. While the Ladybird’s Wit is a Belgian style white (or wit) beer brewed with malt, oats, and wheat, and spiced with coriander and orange peel and is served unfiltered, the Tilting at Windmills is a strong golden-colored Belgian Ale with flavors of fruit and honey and a dry finish. Other great brews to try here include Hell or High Water ESB, Ten Penny Nail, Road Devil Red Ale, and, Goat Vampire Ale.
The cheese pizza is the perfect companion to your beer at Pecan Street. It comes out of the wood-fired oven hot and loaded with cheese. They have an impressive lunch and dinner menu. You can have anything from buffalo chicken wings to ships and salsa here at fair prices.
