American and English-style ales are now available at Zilker Brewing Company.
Co-founders Patrick Clark, Forrest Clark and Marco Rodriguez started the business out of the desire to create beer they enjoyed. The three started brewing together seven years ago and planned to open the brewery and tap room by end of 2014, but after some delays the business debuted April 10.
The team brews their beer using a Belgian trappist yeast to add complexity and depth to each batch, according to the ownership team. Zilker Brewing Company currently have four beers on tap: a session ale, a pale ale, an extra-special bitter and a Belgian pale ale.
The tap room is open from Wednesday through Sunday at 1701 E. Sixth St.
