Great beer, food, and a killer location have cemented Easy Tiger as one of Austin's top haunts. So much so, in fact, that the downtown beer garden has been named the most popular bar in Texas for 2015.

The list comes from Buzzfeed, who tapped Foursquare for the data. Foursquare determined the most popular bar in each state by looking at ratings and the number of visits to each bar throughout the year. 

As the most frequented bar in the state, Easy Tiger caters to many desires. There is craft beer on tap, plus a mind-blowing selection of whiskey and unique cocktails. The space itself is a gem, with cozy indoor seating and ample outdoor space along Waller Creek. Easy Tiger is open early and late, too, so you can grab a cup of joe and pastry from the bakery in the morning, then come back for sausage and brews at night.

And soon, Easy Tiger fans won't need to trek downtown. The bar is expanding beyond Sixth Street with a second location at The Linc, near Highland Mall. In a move that's guaranteed to add to Easy Tiger's popularity, the new 11,500-square-foot space will feature an expanded bake shop, a dog park, even more outdoor seating, and a stage for live music.
