From Beernews.org, Austin’s newest brewpub will have Odell’s veteran brewer Joe Mohrfeld maning the tanks.
From the horse’s mouth:
I am going to be leaving Odell at the end of January to work on starting a brewpub in Austin TX named “Pinthouse Pizza” with some friends who have been working on the concept for the better part of this year. Our hope is to not only showcase my beers, but also other craft beers from the Austin area and from other friend’s breweries as they come into the Austin market, it will be a very collaborative spot for craft beer and brewers. We are hoping to be open mid 2012, and I will be brewing on a 7bbl system with a 10gal pilot system.
Sounds like these guys aren’t joking around.
There have also been rumors circulating about a possible brewpub opening on Lamar and 5th and another on North Lamar between Koenig and 183.
