There are a few good guitar shops in Austin, but South Austin Music is a pleasantly unpretentious spot where you don’t feel too weird picking up an instrument and the staff don’t hover too much. The aging building and over-stuffed isles give the store a busy charm and it’s easy to get lost playing their wide selection of guitars and basses. Prices aren’t amazing, but there are good deals to be had.

Listed here as a bar, this is actually a brewery offering up a diverse selection of highly original sour-mash beers. I've yet to have something I didn't like in their tight and bustling tasting room, which is surrounded by great East Side eateries, but standouts are the Spirit Animal (sour pale) and the Professor Black (sour cherry stout). They also have a fun, short brewery tour on the weekends that's worth checking out.
