Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Augusta Brewing Co. in Augusta

Not open on Monday. Owner is a jerk. (long post follows) On our 3 rivers winter tour, I started calling a day ahead to check if places were open. When I reached this guy, he launched into a 10 min monologue about his overhead costs and how "nobody is on the trail" this time of year! Despite 2 cyclists yesterday, and our group today, he clearly doesn't care about anything but profit. What a shame. I've stopped here several times in warm weather and enjoyed the beer. Now I absolutely believe the earlier comments about this guy screaming at children for playing in the bamboo. (I would have played in it too if I was a kid, but now it's cordoned off with ugly flagging tape.) Everywhere else we enjoyed hospitality, but this was the only notable exception. Please see my post about the Silly Goose.

WHOA! So? Mr. Bump???? Do you go into work for no pay????? I bet not!
I mean if you criticize someone for only opening when they can make a profit and all????
Of course they are open FOR A PROFIT! Sorry but the world does not revolve around you and your drinking delights!
And NO. I do not work for this man, or receive any payment for the truth I am telling here.

Oh, and so that you know.....I ride the Trail ALL YEAR LONG. I live right on the Trail and enjoy what is open when it is open for BUSINESS! We carry our own lunch this time of year, as well as Hot Cocoa, to eat at the Trail Heads on the Picnic Tables....

I've stopped there many times and it's always been very nice. Good beer and food.

Sorry, you must have caught him on a bad day. Augusta Brewing Co. was one of the highlights of our trip. Truly a marvelous place.

One of our favorite stops on the trail. Really enjoyed being there for the Solar Eclipse! Yes, must have just been a bad day.
