Beer descriptions from


Crisp, clean, and refreshing, this pilsner is styled after the original Bohemian classic from the town of Pizen, Czech Republic, Pilz is a golden-colored brew that balances a pleasant hoppiness with its smooth malt flavor. It finishes dry with a moderate bitterness that is a hallmark of the style. Available Year-round

Big Bark Amber Lager

“Smooth” is the first word from your mouth after a taste of Big Bark Amber. This Vienna-style lager has a reddish-amber color with a smooth, malty flavor and low hop bitterness. It is made from Czech and German malts and German hops. “All Bark, No Bite.” Everyone likes this beer. Available Year-round

Pale Ale

A delicious example of the “neo-classical” American beer style. It has a beautiful copper color and is topped with a thick rich head. With a hint of ale fruitiness in the nose, Pale Ale starts out malty, finishes dry and has plenty of Cascade hops in between. It is sure to satisfy the most discerning ale aficionados. Available Year-round

Hefe Weizen – Spring/Summer Seasonal

Modeled after the classic wheat beers of Bavaria, our HefeWeizen has a cloudy, straw-colored appearance with a thick, creamy head. It is fermented with an authentic Weizenbier yeast strain which imparts delicate notes of clove, vanilla and banana which harmonize perfectly with its mild refreshing tartness. Together these flavors create the perfect thirst quencher to beat the Texas heat. Available April – August

Oaktoberfest – Fall Seasonal

A fall classic, our Oaktoberfest emphasizes rich malt flavor. We use German malt and hops to give it an authentic Bavarian character. The rich, maltiness of this brew is a good match with spicy cuisine, as well as barbecue. Live Oak Oaktoberfest will certainly raise the level of enjoyment at your next fall gathering. Available September – December

Liberation Ale – Winter Seasonal

With about 6.0% ABV, this one will surely warm the ol’ gullet during a cold central Texas winter – both days! Our India Pale Ale (IPA) is light in color and strong in hop character. Dry hopping with Cascade hops, gives this winter favorite a delicious citrus note reminiscent of a Texas Ruby Red. Yes, it’s warming but you don’t need to be huddled around the furnace to enjoy this one! IPA fans really love this ale during a beautiful Texas winter on the porch or indoors. Available December – April
