Hop = handcrafted beer hop
Doddy = the nickname given to the native cow in Aberdeen, Scotland
Hopdoddy burger bar isn’t just any ordinary burger joint. On any given day you can expect to stand in a line that extends around the building in order to enjoy burgers made with hormone and antibiotic free beef, ground in-house daily, yummy buns made from scratch and baked fresh twice daily, and hand-cut fries from select Kennebec potatoes. Adult beverages are made from fresh squeezed citrus, syrups made with cane sugar, and all natural juices. Draught beers, like Thirsty Goat Amber, come from local, small batch, artisanal brewers. They even offer the always tasty reverse osmosis water. I personally like to indulge on locally-owned Buddha’s Brew Kombucha. On this particular visit I enjoyed the ahi tuna burger, but otherwise I usually go with the veggie burger dressed with Primetime (Brie Cheese, Truffle Aioli, Arugula, Caramelized Onions, Steak Sauce) or The Goodnight (Tillamook Cheddar, Hickory BBQ Sauce, Sassy Sauce) style.

I just arrived back in Austin from a rainy and relaxing weekend at my parents house. During my visit I was able to see the progress made on the 18 acres where my Dad, Mom, and their chickens also live. Projected plans for the property include an acre-sized organic garden, heirloom tomato greenhouse, pumpkin patch, compost production, and an event venue. My stepdad, brother, unrelated “uncle” and his nephew are heading the project. On this particular day I was inspired after seeing the first batch of compost produced by my brother Daniel, made from organic produce given to the crew for this intended purpose. The produce would otherwise add to our ever-growing landfills. Check out the near-perfect “waste” that will be used on the organic garden, amongst other things. Talk about upcycling!
