The brainchild of Dustin and Erica Teague, both native small-town Texans, Cactus Land Brewing was founded in January 2017 after confidence-boosting wins at several homebrewing competitions. This small but mighty brewery employs a 2-barrel brewing system which yields around 60 gallons a batch, and this, in turn, generates a diverse and ever-rotating menu. Currently, ten different varieties are offered, utilizing native ingredients such as prickly pear cactus. They tote the slogan “Diverse Beer for Diverse People.” Additional visit highlights include a picturesque country setting with a calming, artistic tasting room, a spacious outdoor seating area, and clean, air-conditioned restrooms. There is also plenty of parking. If you prefer to stay in the city, catch Cactus Land Brewing in Booth 30 at the San Antonio Beer Festival on October 21st; try the Sage Berry Saison!

Cactus Land is open to the public every first and third weekend of the month (because Team Teague is brewing the other weekends!) from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and noon to 9 p.m. on Saturdays. The space is also available for rent on non-public weekends. Mark your calendar to celebrate their one year anniversary on January 20, 2018. There will be special tapped beers including barrel aged and fruit beers, along with a bottle release, live music, and food trucks.
