Adair – Kölsch
6

Crisp / Drinkable / Effervescent 

A clean lager-type of profile with a touch of esters or fruit notes coming through from the ale yeast. An exceedingly drinkable beer which we make with 100% German Noble hops and malts. 4.5% abv

Le Saison – Farmhouse Ale

Citrus / pear / Peppercorn

Hazy straw color with a luscious white head, aromas of worn leather and citrusy peppercorns. Pair this elegant beer with any of our grilled meats, or take a pint on our walking trail and explore this brew’s delicate layers. 6.6% abv

Destination – American IPA

Floral & Citrus / Balanced Bitterness

No-nonsense American IPA brewed with a clean profile to truly showcase the citrus and floral hop aromas that we love. 6.5% abv — 45 IBU

Dark Skies – Black Pilsner

Balanced / cookie-like

Clean, with hints of coffee and roasted marshmallow. European hops are used to balance the body alongside the German specialty malts and German yeast that impart fruitcake and fresh dough flavors and aromas. 4.9% abv

Shallow Roots – Table Bier

Light bodied / Refreshing / spritzy 

Light and low alcohol, the concept for this beer is minimizing waste. When our signature Tripel has sugars left after the grains, we double-rinse and mix it up with a different yeast in each batch — this features Weihenstephaner Pilsner yeast. 2.5% abv

Barrel Program

Our more complex and nuanced recipes are designed around ingredients from the Vista property and surrounding Hill Country (honey, persimmons, agarita, juniper, etc) and we’ll utilize wine barrels from our neighbors on the Central Texas wine road.

Commencement – Brett Ale

Wine-like Complexity / Fruit Notes

This is the first recipe ever brewed at Vista and the inaugural release of our growing barrel program. This 100% Brettanomyces fermented beer spent over two months in freshly emptied red wine barrels from Bending Branch Winery, sourced directly from our friends over in Comfort, Texas. Only 1000 bottles available – will cellar well.  7.0% abv

Merriwether – Wild IPA

Floral / Citrus / earthy

Each season, we collaborate with our friend and foraging expert Dr. Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbuggen to assess the bounty of plants available around our property. This Spring release features super-fragrant agarita and dewberry blossoms, plus lemony wood sorrel, all added at the end of the boil. The hops and foraged aromatics in this Brettanomyces IPA create a blend of everything we like about IPAs (juicy, hazy, wild). 6.6% abv

Zwickled Pink – Dry-Hopped Pilsner

Crisp / Clean / Citrus & Pine

Vista’s Pink Boots collaboration brew is a Zwickle Pilsner, an unfiltered and unpasteurized German-style lager dry-hopped with 2018 Pink Boots Hops Blend. This beer will pour a hazy golden hue with a fluffy white head that lingers on the glass. $1 of each Vista beer donated to Pink Boots Scholarship Fund for women in the brewing industry. 5% abv

We are fully aware of the history of beer and we will always attempt to make beer with homage to those brewers and breweries that have come before us. While tradition will create our foundation, we will utilize products and materials from locally supplied partners to create beers with connections to Texas and the Hill Country.

We use traditional styles and brewing techniques that pay homage to European origins, while defining our own Texas Hill Country interpretation. By not overcomplicating the process, we brew simple and elegant beers that are clean, dry and drinkable.

All of our beers are made with water sourced directly from the limestone-filtered water well on the property which will offer a true terroir of flavor and experience. We have the unique opportunity to brew with ingredients foraged from our own land and harvested from our own farm. Plus, we work hand in hand with our Chef and Farmer to create perfectly paired menus of farm-fresh, Hill Country cuisine.
