Wall Street meets West Sixth Street at the Brew Exchange located at 706 West Sixth Street in Austin, Texas. Nowhere else in Austin will you find a bar quite like The Brew Exchange. Our commodity is beer, and lots of it. Thirsty for an India Pale Ale, we have eight on tap, many of them from local craft breweries. The best part, prices on our 100+ beers are constantly fluctuating. We are the first bar in Austin with prices based on supply and demand.
Our 100+ beers are divided into categories (IPA, Lager, Cider ect…) Each time someone orders a beer, the price goes up for the next person who orders the same beer. The others in the category go down by the same amount. The more popular the beer is, the higher the price goes, while those not being ordered continue to fall. If you’re a fan of staple beers such as Miller Lite, Bud Light or Lone Star, don’t worry prices for those beers stay the same.
Keeping up with the fluctuating beer prices is both easy and a little entertaining. You can watch the prices rise and fall in real time via our 1960’s style ticker running above the bar. Prices will also fluctuate in real time on several “big boards” (flat screen televisions) throughout the bar.
The bottom line, we want you to explore the market, trying beers you’ve never had. There’s a good chance they’ll be less expensive, allowing you to buy low and drink up.
