We were just down in TX last week, the main reason was to visit family in South Texas. Had some Shiner Black, the FM 966 farmhouse, and lots of Indio at the BiLs.
Stayed a couple nights in Austin with the niece and her husband. We went to Bangers one night in Downtown Austin. Place does a lot of their own wurst, good and unique toppings, sides were better than expected. German potato salad was excellent. The place has 100 beers on tap. Some were showing their age, but the popular local brews were fresh. I would go back without hesitation.
Also went to the Gingerman. Live Oak Pilz is good stuff.
Also managed to hit City Market in Luling for some Q on the way to the Rio Grande Valley, and on the way back hit Kruetz in Lockhart for another helping of Q. The brisket at Kruetz won our vote for this trip.
