Jensen Ackles’ Family Business Beer Company About to Open Its Doors

By  | 


Family Business Beer Company, co-owned by Jensen Ackles of “Supernatural” fame, along with his wife and in-laws, will be opening this week on January 10, 2018, according to reports by Austin360. The brewery, which is located in Dripping Springs, just outside of Austin, has an on-site playground for children and will host a food truck with a Southern-style menu, which is owned by “Duck Dynasty” stars, Jep and Jessica Robertson.

Situated at 19510 Hamilton Pool Road, this 15-acre property is a Texas Hill Country must-see for fans of both the actor and a good brew. Having an assortment of beers on tap, this project and property have been in the making over the course of a few years, and for Ackles and his brother-in-law, Gino Graul, who had been hobby brewers, it’s the homey sort of place they believe fellow beer lovers will want to spend an afternoon.

Ackles presently continues filming of the current “Supernatural” season in Vancouver, which keeps him away from Austin and the brewery for long periods, but in the meantime, Graul remains on the scene together with head brewer Nate Seale. The opening taps consist of some signature Seale brews, including Hamilton Pale Ale and Grackle Hill Country Imperial Stout. Although Ackles is well aware that many visitors to the Family Business Beer Co. may come because they’re “Supernatural” fans, he also hopes the brewery will stand on its own merit – for its atmosphere and, of course, its beers. “We want people to appreciate the quality, appreciate the experience,” he explained. Upon grand opening, Family Business Beer Company will operate from 3 to 10 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays as well.
