About Porter Gastropub:
Inspired by a shared interest and passion for food and beverage, three longtime friends collaborated to live out their dream. Owners Joe Bixel, Neil Joiner and Trevor Lane bring an incomparable and well-crafted gastropub to the heart of South Austin, just minutes from downtown. Stemming from their mutual love for the Johnny Cash song “Hey Porter,” the name Porter Gastropub hints at the porter style of beer associated with the working class in England, suggesting the restaurant’s aim of creating an approachable and inviting ambience. With a vast beer selection, curated with local and imported brews, and a few cocktails and wines on tap offered, Porter has the goods to back it up—in the form of tasty pub staples, with a bit of an updated twist. Beer cheese fondue, pierogies and charcuterie plates are just a few of the delectable menu items, ensuring there is something for everyone. Armed with the overarching goal to serve the best in a no-frills, approachable manner, guests are invited to sit down, have a beer, a few bites, and stay a while.
