Guided by Chris


Just east of the downtown skyscrapers, building facades transform from clean & modern to rustic & threadbare-trendy that beg to be explored. This walk through East Austin will provide a taste of the neighborhood’s gritty character and contemporary flavor. Come sample craft brews, discover a hidden speakeasy, admire street art by a local legend, and experience the best honky tonk in town. And as a gift from us to you, there are two special surprises on the walk. Just tap the red gift icon when you reach Brew + Brew and the Zilker Brewing Co.

About Your Guide

Hi I'm Chris, Co-Founder of The Guild! My family & I recently returned to Austin after a 13 year absence and are thrilled to be back. When I'm not drinking a Topo Chico based cocktail on East 6th, you can find me stroller jogging on Town Lake, swimming with my 2 year old in Barton Springs, sunrise wakesurfing with friends on Lake Austin or willing Longhorns Football back to national prominence at Darrell K. Royal Stadium. Hook 'em!
