Five Things to Know About Stouthaus Coffee Pub
Stouthaus Coffee Pub opened in 2014, and by 2015, Austin Eater had already named it one of the city’s Essential Coffee Shops. Chalk that up to the shop’s drink selection, which run the gamut from espresso to pale ale, as well as its comfortable space and community-minded event calendar. Read on to discover what all the buzz is about:
It’s a great place to begin and end your day. Staouthaus bills itself as a public living room, and backs up that claim with handcrafted coffee, local craft beers, and community events in a space with huge vaulted ceilings, a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling window, and repurposed wooden furniture.
They carefully tend to the coffee from the cultivation stage to the brewing process. Stouthaus uses direct-trade, locally roasted coffees and espressos, and puts as much care into preparing them as the growers did harvesting them. In addition to handcrafted espresso drinks, baristas serve drip, pour-over, and chemex coffees.
You can get your wake-me-up with a Nitro-boost. Nitrogen-infused, keg-tapped coffee is the latest in science-lab caffeine, and Stouthaus serves cups of the iced- and enhanced-joe made by fellow Austinites, Cuvée.
Kick back with an ice cold IPA, stout, belgian, or...kombucha? Yes, you read that right. They actually serve the fermented Japanese tea loaded with gut-friendly probiotics alongside a rotating on-tap lineup of small-batch beers from local and national craft breweries, including Thirsty Planet, Victory, Martin House, and Guadalupe.
Sit down, eat something, enjoy the show. The food menu features an eclectic, yet thoughtful selection of shareable plates and snacks. Guests can munch on baked goods from LaLeigh’s Patisserie, organic and locally made tamales, or cheese boards with marinated olives
while enjoying live music, a local artists’ showing,
or the occasional World Cup game projected onto the wall.
