Though the years, here's what I've learned:  Barbecue soothes the soul.  It's simple in philosophy and rich in tradition.  It's an art and a craft, a love and a passion.

Peace, Love, and Barbecue

ssweeney's Review of Beer Barn and BBQ

Main Fare:

  • Brisket is rendered and moist... but still tough on the chew.  Is this an issue with reheating?
  • Rib is big and meaty.  Tasty.  Light coating of rub is salty & spicy.
  • Sausage is another with the homeade bologna or salami flavor profile with black pepper.
  • Jalapeno Cheese sausage is quite chewy. 

Other Fare:

  • Baked potato casserole uses pit smoked taters and adds butter, garlic salt, and black pepper.  Hot, rich, and good.
  • Potato salad is a creamy, mayo-based type with egg and a touch of dill.  Very nicely done.

Atmosphere:

  • Before arrival, this seemed like the perfect concept: BBQ + Beer.  Unfortunately, we are surrounded by malty beverages, but cannot consume them on premise.  A good bet that they do mostly carry-out business!
  • One table inside with a couple of chairs and some coolers for seating. 
  • Husband (and pit boss) is not here today, but his wife is running the counter at the Beer Barn - with the help from her toddler daughter.  Another friendly lady (from California) is running the barbecue window. 
  • They ask how on earth we found them in Austonio, TX... the web is a wonderful resource!
