Who doesn’t love beer and coffee, right?! I got an invite to come check out a media preview of the newly redesigned Thunderbird Cafe & Tap Room up on Koenig so I grabbed Rob and headed north.

I’ve been to the Thunderbird Manor location many times but had actually never visited this location, so I can’t compare it to what it looked like before its renovation. But I can tell you that the new & improved version is super cute! I love the outdoor patio seating area with the pendant lamps…

And the inside was nice as well. Their new beer wall features 35 taps, and it’s so clean and streamlined. I love this design. Plus a great brewski selection!

The actual beer list is on the neighboring wall. You can just tell them what tap number you want.

We sampled a few tastes of some crisp summer lagers and eventually I settled on a Sympathy for the Lager from Houston’s Karbach Brewery. My choice was enthusiastically endorsed by the ultra-nice barista/bartender/dude behind the counter. He was great – everyone working the Thunderbird event was so friendly. Sometimes people working at hip coffeehouses can be a little too cool for school… you know what I mean. Not here. Thanks guys.

Thunderbird also offers your expected tasty café type food. We tried some passed bites (little sandwiches, etc.) but next time I stop in for a latte or a pint, I want one of those vegan peanut butter cups from their display case…

Yum. I can just imagine how cozy this place will be in the fall/winter. I’ll definitely be back for morning and evening beverages in the future. I’d say Thunderbird is off to a great start with this new redesign!
