Something’s Always Brewing at Pecan Street Brew Pub & Restaurant

If you are looking for a fun, fabulous evening, look no further than Pecan Street Brewing in Johnson City, the newest Brew Pub in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. On Friday and Saturday evenings, they offer live music along with a palate-pleasing menu and the best beer you’ll ever drink! Brewer Sean Elliott is exceeding our expectations by creating some awesome beers. This venue will not disappoint! Prefer wine? No problem, Pecan Street Brewing serves numerous selections from Texas Vineyards. The lunch menu is a smaller version of the dinner menu, keeping folks on a time schedule in mind -if you don’t have a lot of time to dine, they’ll make sure you receive your order quickly without sacrificing quality. Another special treat is the beer-brioche rolls on their burgers, which are baked in-house and are the simply the best you’ll ever eat. Opening time on Sundays is now 11 a.m., providing you with a fantastic menu of breakfast pizzas, breakfast sandwiches, mimosas, and red eyes.

There is always something going on at Pecan Street Brewing. What can you look forward to in October besides good beer, music and food? Well...first of all they will be hosting their 1st-Annual Oktoberfest celebration on October 21st, an event you won’t want to miss. Along with that there will be a 3rd Friday Cruise-In of several local car groups, providing you with the opportunity to see a vast array of roadsters, classic, and antique vehicles from all over central Texas. Don’t forget to make plans to attend Night Spooktacular, a Halloween Party that occurs on October 29th, which promises to be a ghoulish good time!

Pecan Street Brewing also has space available to rent for special events such as rehearsal dinners, birthdays, anniversarys, reunions, or any other special celebration you are planning - just contact them for details. You’ll be impressed with their great attitudes and creativity as you’re welcomed with Texas hospitality at its finest.

Pecan Street Brewing is the vision of Tim & Patty Elliott, who purchased the building in 2008 with the dream of giving the Johnson City icon new life. Tim & Patty met at the Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin, where Patty was a barmaid and Tim the house handyman. There they fell in love through their shared appreciation for the finer things in life - good food, live music, and a nice cold beer to wash it all down. I guess you could say not much has changed...

Tim and Patty decided to return to the Hill Country after living in Houston, where they ran a successful blending and packaging company. They are still blending, but this time it is artisanal beers, hand-crafted by their Brewer, Sean Elliott. Sean honed his craft studying in Europe as well as the US, and of course through much experimenting and “testing.” He never seemed to be at a loss for beer testers though, proof that his “trial and error” period was a lot more trial and very little error. Sean is joined by John Yachimski, the Head Chef for Pecan Street Brewing and mastermind behind the ever-changing menu of brick-oven pizzas, fresh salads, and burgers loaded with fresh and local ingredients.

Pecan Street Brewing is a place where you can meet and make friends while relaxing in a casual atmosphere, just like they did in the old days. It is located in the center of 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 unofficially, the gathering place where folks would get together, drink coffee, and swap stories about the goings-on about 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 featured every weekend.

We hope you will make Pecan Street Brewing your new “Third Place” - a place for you to go other than work or home, where you can gather, connect and get loose with friends. Just want to shoot the breeze? No problem - just come on in, make yourself at home and indulge in a game of dominos or pool because this is your “Third Place.”
