Today’s installment of “Exploring Legacy Hall, One Bite at a Time” is taking a look at what Unlawful Assembly Brewing Company looks like now, 8 months after the opening of Legacy Hall. There have been quite a few changes, grand openings and updates to Legacy Hall since the doors have opened and to sum up how we’ve seen Unlawful Assembly grow we’ll refer to an old advertising quote, “You’ve come a long way, baby”!
The Boxgarden Opened
The Box Garden is named “Box Garden” because it’s literally that. It’s an entertainment stage surrounded by a tiki bar, Stillhouse Lounge, Unlawful Assembly Outpost, and 2 rotating pop-ups along with a Hawaiian shaved ice stand. Much of the struct was made from reclaimed shipping containers. It holds up to 1,500+ people and a BBQ stall, Carlton Provisions BBQ.
The ‘garden’ opened with Sarah Jaffe who burst onto the indie scene in a big way in 2008 with her self-released EP, ‘Even Born Again’, which earned praise from Rolling Stone and many others. She has also this awesome artist has toured with the likes of Norah Jones, Lou Barlow, the Old 97’s and other popular acts, and has made memorable live appearances at major venues from Austin City Limits to Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Live entertainment is packed onto the menu and watching sports on the big screen makes the beer tasted even better. Add that to the barbeque and oh, sweet Sunday!
These are the six premium beer styles available year-round:
- Idol Time: Passion Fruit Pineapple Wheat – In this unfiltered wheat ale, fermented with tart tropical fruits, we celebrate the times we can’t remember and the friends we won’t forget.
- Peacemonger – You can defuse any tense situation with a little diplomacy and the right beer, especially one as agreeable as the European-style Pilsner. It’s a crisp and slightly malty beer with a spicy, noble hop finish.
- Rebel Faction – Rise up! This Saison’s floral aroma, fruity and earthy flavors and subtle tartness will be the antidote for conformity.
- Public Dissent – This refreshingly crisp grapefruit and piney hop-flavored pale ale with caramel undertones stands up against the mainstream.
- The Antagonist – With a medium body, balanced caramel-like flavor and a dry finish, this beer is one that everyone will enjoy.
- Blind Justice IPA – West Coast meets Texas. A blend of six different hops makes this beer an amber slice of heaven. The mouthwatering IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of Mosaic, Citra, Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo and Magnum hops, balanced by a perfect level of malt body.
Add to those the Idol Time Series:
- Passion Fruit Pineapple Wheat – In this unfiltered wheat ale, fermented with tart tropical fruits, we celebrate the times we can’t remember and the friends we won’t forget.
- Agave Lime Golden Ale – Agave nectar is added in the kettle to create a distinctive sweetness that is accentuated by lime in this crisp refreshing golden ale.
And the Special Releases
- Imperial IPA – Double Justice – This Imperial IPA has a slightly malty caramel flavor balanced by Amarillo, Mosaic, Citra, and Denali hops.
- Legacy Hall and Oats – (see what they did there?) This stout uses generous amounts of flaked oats and dark malt to create a rich creamy mouthfeel with roast, chocolate, coffee, and caramel flavors.
Tasting is believing so you should try each one so you can truly say you know your favorite.
The reviews respectable everywhere we look, people have their opinions about which beers they like and don’t like but everyone seems to have the same opinion on the fun atmosphere and the good times they have when they visit.

I had two beers here while eating at the Legacy Food Hall on a Tuesday night. Both bartenders were very helpful and friendly, and I experienced good customer service. The bartender was nice enough to spontaneously pour me two small beer samples, as I wanted a beer line a brown ale. The beer I got was a very good craft beer and I came back up to order a refill. They are on the third floor (I was sitting on the second floor), and have nice seating areas around their bar. It was a good craft-beer experience.
