One of Austin's first craft beer bars could close by Christmas unless a buyer steps forward to purchase the 30-year-old pub.

B.B. Rover’s Cafe & Pub is owned by John Gross, David Dunn and Eugene Downing and was known for its vast beer selection long before the craft beer craze swept Austin, according to the owners.

Downing said a variety of factors contributed to the owners wanting to sell or close, including rising costs, retirement and capital needed to update the bar. B.B. Rover’s is located at 12636 Research Blvd., Ste. B101, Austin. 512-335-9504
