3 Craft Breweries to Add to Your Texas Hill Country Tour and Tasting List

By  | 

Looking for a place to set a spell and sample some fine hops and barley? The Texas Hill Country has ample opportunity for that to happen when you take time to stop at a local craft brewery. Popping up everywhere, there has never been a better time to sip on some local suds. Here are three great places to add to your tour and tasting list.

1. Adelbert’s Brewery

Situated in an Austin industrial park, Adelbert’s Brewery features barrel-lined walls and a friendly atmosphere, giving it a low-key feel and a sense of comfortableness. Purchasing a wristband for $13 will allow for a variety of six beers, and visitors can keep the designer glass as a souvenir. And if you’re ready just to relax, you can pull a stool up to a table (made from one of those same wooden barrels that line the place) and listen to some live music. There’s also a nice mix of darts, foosball, and great grub by featured Austin food trucks on site.

2. Jester King Brewery

Located at Ceres Park Ranch, near Dripping Springs, Jester King Brewery is a true beer connoisseur’s Heaven. Featuring farmhouse ales made from well water that’s onsite, native wild yeast, and grains that are locally grown, their beers are distinctly tied to the Hill Country. Similar in how a specific wine tastes from a specific terroir, Jester King brews beer which would be impossible to replicate due to the locally-sourced ingredients combined with their exacting process. Their menu features 58 beers to choose from, and the business is family-owned and operated. While you’re there, you can stroll around the ranch, play a game of corn hole and even pick up a pizza at Stanley’s Farmhouse Pizza (weekends only) which are made from scratch and baked in an open-air pavilion in wood-fired ovens!
