OUR BEER PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE
Beer should be fun for everyone!
So we’ve stocked our shelves and selected our taps with both casual drinkers and beer nerds in mind. And, hey, check out our selection of gluten-free brews. Really, we mean everyone!
Our ever-changing tap list is focused on local and craft beers. You’ll always find a handful of seasonals and a mix of beers that aren’t available in bottles, so you can make the most of your growler!
Living in the endless summer of Austin, TX, we focus on session beers – although it seems 512 Pecan Porter is never out of season.
THURSDAY NIGHT IS MERCHANDISE NIGHT
We’ve got great relationships with breweries, and are able to get our hands on some of the coolest new brews around. Each week we feature a different brewery with cheap pours, free swag and a chance to chat with the biggest beer nerds in town.
If you don’t see your favorite beer on tap, check our extensive cooler selection. You’re always welcome to stop and enjoy anything we’ve got on the shelves right here at Quickie Pickie for a $1 cap fee. You are also welcome to break 6 packs to build your own, or just take home a single.
Austin is a city of transplants, and we know how exciting it can be to find your favorite beer from home at your local shop, so we carry lots of regional favorites. If you don’t see your hometown beer, ask us, and we’ll see what we can do!
We’re delighted to exclusively offer Counter Culture Coffee at Quickie Pickie.
Because, besides having had a strong hand in shaping the artisan coffee movement, of which they are arguably the sustainability stars, they have a transparent process for delivering the highest possible quality from farm to cup while maintaining total dedication to equity among all sectors of the industry. Whew. But, really.
Plus we love their Coffee.
Shade-grown, certified organic, sustainably produced. That’s all they offer. Lots of other good coffees out there and a couple of other truly great roasters, but Counter Culture manages to be wildly PC while also consistently delivering coffees of incredible complexity and, well, deliciousness.
Find out more about how they’ve integrated integrity into every level of their business, why, and what its effect is on that cup right in front of you. You’ll enjoy it even more!
We think buying Wine should be Stress-Free.
Wine to stay
Our by-the-glass wine list is small but mighty! We’ve drawn our list from sunny, food-loving southern Europe, where easy drinking wines are a part of every-day life. Taste them all and then relax with a glass on our patio.
|Maña Marisquero Alicante
Valencia, Catalonia, Spain
Whether the “maña” refers to the winemaker’s having employed the shell-fisherman’s skill or his illusion, this dry, mineral and slightly saline refresher will have you reaching for some crabcakes.
|Palagetto Vernaccia di San Gimignano
San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy
Beautiful bracing lime on the palette, metal and minerals on the nose. Do I want salty sausages or spicy fish? I’ll take both!
|Monte del Frà Custoza
Custoza, Veneto, Italy
Fragrance of citrus, quince and flowers. Beautiful mouth feel: round and lean at the same time. Sweet spices, honey and, poof, a perfect dose of acid on the finish. A superb food wine and a double-handed quaffer.
|Siglo Rioja Crianza
Fuenmayor, Rioja, Spain
Crianza is the queen of every-day wines – pure, fresh and gentle, but with plenty of character and structure.
Great alone, perfect with pork.
|Chateau Coupe Roses Minervois
La Caunette, Languedoc, France
Earthy with layers of tar, cherries, raspberries, blueberries, and black pepper with floral nuances.
Where’s my damn goat slider?
|Biricchina Piemonte Barbera
Priocca, Piedmont, Italy
Soft tannins, raspberry and Bing cherry on the nose and the palette. A real beauty with a sassy little fizz that makes you want to date her all summer.
|Clos La Soleya Cava Brut
Sant Sadurní d’Anola, Catalonia, Spain
Bieler Pere et Fils SabineAix-en-Provence, Provence, France
7./15. [O.5-litre carafe]
Bright, brisk, salted fruit candy…who cares?
A carafe and one glass, please!
Wine to take away
We also carry more than 300+ wines on our retail shelves. Take one home or enjoy it here at Quickie Pickie for $5 corkage fee.
We offer some of the best well-priced small producer wines available in the Austin market and are always looking for hidden gems. So you may not recognize a lot of our bottles.
Don’t worry! We have wines for all tastes and wallets and we’re happy to answer as many questions as you want to throw at us.
