The Family Business is co-owned by Dallas native Jensen Ackles and his wife, Danneel. Jensen co-stars in the horror/drama CW show “Supernatural,” a long-running cult-favorite, currently airing its fourteenth season.

The title of the brewery officially alludes to the close relationship between the owners and management. It also refers to the famous opening of Ackels’ show, “Supernatural.”  Ackles’ character travels the country with his brother, battling ghosts, and monsters. The opening sums up the show well: it features a clip of Ackles, saying,  “I think he wants us to pick up where we left off. Saving people, hunting things. The family business.”

In summary, The Family Business is a beautiful addition to the Hill Country. It is family-oriented, focused on quality food, drink, and time with loved ones. An afternoon in this tucked-away Dripping Springs treasure is a vacation unto itself. If you go on the weekend, you might even get to have a beer with Jensen himself.
