Those who don't want to "stay put" at their favorite Rainey Street spot can soon head to "The Stay Put," a new brewery set to add to the area nightlife sometime this summer.

The brewery, which comes from bar hospitality group Pouring With Heart, will brew its own beers. They'll be available alongside draft cocktails on tap at the two bars within the indoor and outdoor space.

The beer itself will feature "crisp and clean, easy drinkers," according to Eater Austin.

Its leaders have seen their share of the local nightlife scene: Pouring With Heart's general manager Amanda Carto was once GM at Nickel City and has experience at fellow Rainey Street bar Half Step. Meanwhile, operations director Steven Robbins has several local projects under his belt, including reopening beloved old-school spot King Bee and opening rum-focused Caña, which operates within company-owned bars Seven Grand and Last Perlas ATX.

The latest Rainey Street development will be located at the site of the former Indian restaurant G'Raj Mahal at 73 Rainey Street and will open sometime in summer 2022.

The property in question, known as the Delisle House, is located at 2002 Scenic Drive in Tarrytown. The main house, with Spanish and Modern influences, was built in 1923 by Raymond Delisle, an optician. A Gothic Revival accessory apartment was built in 1946. The current owner applied to demolish the structures in order to build a new home.'
