4th Tap4

Here’s a food truck that’s been visiting local breweries and other places, offering amazing tex-mex dishes. What’s unique about these dishes? They’re all made from scratch!

Best Wurst
Serving grilled sausage greatness for over 20 years, Best Wurst pioneered the food vending business in Austin. Dubbed “the most efficient kitchen in Austin”, their 6th Street shop has sold well over a million sandwiches. Your visit to Austin will not be complete until you’ve had a taste of the Best Wurst, pun intended.

La Gala Peña Ceviches
If you haven’t tried ceviches, you haven’t really lived. This is fresh raw fish marinated in secret spices cooked in lime juice. If you think raw fish is too much to handle for you, scale down to their basic shrimp ceviche.

Not only are seafood known sources of protein, minerals and vitamins, it’s also low in fat. If you happen to know someone from South America, they’d tell you that ceviche is a potent aphrodisiac, and is also good for hangovers.

Love chili? Served all year round, PickAChili has taken their 5 craft chilis to a whole new level by offering more ways of serving it. Enjoy it in a cup, or if you’re feeling your creative juices flowing, check out their extensive menu for some customizing goodness.

What’s in the Tap?

If the lights are on at 4th Tap, the doors are open – well, most of the time. They have 10 taps offering the latest iterations of their experimental beers coming straight from their tanks and they want you to be the judge.

They have fully air-conditioned spaces where you can enjoy board games, play ping pong, free Wi-Fi, and coffee with your friends and the whole family. You can drink in the taproom, or in the brewery by the big tanks.

You can buy a pint and you’ll get a free glass. You can also grab a bite from the various food trucks and wash it down with even more great tasting beer from one of the most noteworthy Austin breweries in Texas. You can also just bring your own food – so cool!  And they’ll let your dog in too!

Canned for the beer lovin’ porch drinkers and river floater out there, Renewal is basically wheat bear, magnum hopped with tamarind fruit that nice tart steak finish.

Calibration Blonde
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – whoever came up with that phrase must have been in 4th Tap, with burgers on one hand and a Blonde on the other. It’s clean and simple taste make it a favorite among “lite” beer drinkers or those who want their beer sans the bells and whistles. Just perfect for winding down after a gruelling day.of toil and labor.

Sun Eater
A proud son of Texas, Sun Eater was brought forth using only Texas-grown ingredients. Starting off with a base of dark brown sugar and Sorghum, this gruit derives it bitterness from Rosemary mixed with dried lemon peel. Sun Eater possesses that dry, refreshing finish akin to cider or champagne – and is a perfect weapon against the tyrannical heat of the Texas sun. Global warming doesn’t have anything on this bad boy.

This robust porter starts you off with a strong hint of dark chocolate and a then a deep roast and a spark of coffee at the very end without that bitter taste. Brick Top has that sensual Maris Otter malt profile, Blackprinz topped off with nice portions of that amazing UK Fuggle hops.

Yule Cat
Certainly not the mythical creature from Icelandic folklore used to scare local wool workers to finish their work. Far from it! Yule Cat is 4th Tap’s malty Amber offering infused with a spice blend. It is aged with old lattices smoked with whiskey. This is where Yule Cat gets it strong spicy profile with subtle hint of oak and whiskey notes.
