2314 Rutland Drive, #100; 512-662-1462
Founded in 2012, Adelbert’s namesake is
brewer Scott Hovey’s deceased older brother,
George Adelbert Hovey (1953-2000), who
was known for his zest for life and passion for
beer. The result is Austin’s first all-Belgian style
bottle and keg-conditioned brewery with each
beer named after a story Adelbert loved to
tell. The brewery’s offerings include: Rambler
Ale, Scratchin’ Hippo, Tripel B, Flyin Monks,
Naked Nun, Philosophizer, Black Rhino,
Traveler, and Dancin’ Monks. Many of these
fine brews are gold medal award winners.
Flyin’ Monks was named the 2014 Rockies/
Southwest Regional Champion at the U.S.
Beer Tasting Championship. Undoubtedly, all
of these brews are worth getting bubbly about.

enjoy the brewery’s offerings, but you might
be tempted once you enter. Black Star offers

of Irish and English taverns and is homemade, locally sourced cuisine. Year-round

Epsilon and Moebius. The internationally
bottled beers, flights, and guest beers change
constantly. Black Star also offers the occasional Pint Night, so check out their website
