Adair – Kölsch

Crisp / Drinkable / Effervescent 

silver medal – best little brewfest in Texas

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.  0.5L pour.

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.  0.5L pour.

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.  0.5L pour.

Dark Skies – Black Pilsner

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. 0.5L pour.

Hyde Park - ESB

BISCUITY / ALFALFA

This English-style ESB pours a dark straw color and is crisp and malty with just the right amount earthy, herbal hop character. An English yeast strain bestows a fruitiness to the aromatics. Our ESB is a nod to Hyde Park here in Austin and in London!  5.5% abv. 0.5L pour.

Karst – German Altbier

amber / toffee / balanced

This brown, Dusseldorf-style ale-lager hybrid pours a deep amber color with a fluffy tan head. We showcase biscuity pilsner malts and sweet toffee flavor from German caramel malts, balanced with the clean bitterness of generous additions of German noble hops.

NAMED FOR: The porous, holey limestone found here under our feet at Vista and throughout the Edwards and Trinity aquifers. We draw mineral rich water filtered by these karst stone aquifers for all of our beers at Vista.  5.2% abv.  0.5L pour

Barrel Program

Vista’s barrel program is built around freshly emptied wine barrels sourced from our neighbors here in Central Texas. We currently have over 50 barrels aging with brettanomyces ales, Belgian-style lambics (some with local fruit, such as Fredericksburg peaches) and small batch variations of our beer garden recipes.

Laissez Faire - Wine-Barrel-Aged Brett Ale

PEAR / ROSE / MINERAL

This delicate, wine-like ale is made with 100% Texas grains, house-aged hops, and Belgian Brett yeast which produces a mild, tropical fruit aromatic profile. We aged for over four months in freshly-emptied Montepulciano wine barrels, lending a pink hue and notes of pear and rose. These bottles will age well in your cellar for several years.  6.5% abv.  8oz pour.

Velo de Flor - Belgian-Style Lambic

TART / EFFERVESCENT / SOFT FRUIT

Our Lambic uses a mixture of seven cultures to mimic traditional spontaneous fermentations of southern Belgium. Time in freshly-emptied Temranillo, Tannat and Aglianico barrels lends a pink-hue with notes of tart cherries and sultanas which accentuate hints of lemon, grapefruit and orange peels. Brettanomyces lends dry farmhouse notes of earth and hay, along with a wine-like spice. We were inspired by the makers of fine sherry in Spain and Portugal, where the common terminology for the layer of yeast that forms inside the barrel of wines is Velo de Flor or “veil of flowers”.

This beer is ready to enjoy now, or let it age in your cellar. Development in bottle is a standard of the Lambic style and Velo de Flor will become increasingly complex and tart if cellared properly. Enjoy 10 or even 20 years from now! 6.0% abv. 8oz pour.

Seeking Sakura - Wine-Barrel Aged Brett Ale with Cherries

VIBRANT / CHERRY / CHAMOMILE

Our team at Vista is inspired by finding beauty in the world around us. Each year, millions of people travel to Japan seeking the beauty of the cherry blossom, or “sakura.” This beautiful brett ale was aged with sweet cherries with earthy Brett Bruxellensis in freshly-emptied wine barrels from our friends at Lewis Wines in Johnson City that held a Tempranilllo/Cabernet Sauvignon blend.

Vibrant sweet cherries deliver a juicy flavor and touch of acid. Brettanomyces yeast lends notes of orange blossom, honeysuckle and cured leather. Enjoy on draft now, or let a bottle age in your cellar for years to come!  6.3% abv.  8 oz pour.

Lady Bird - Bière de Garde

CARAMEL / TOASTED ALMOND / CORIANDER

A classic interpretation of a French farmhouse Bière de Garde with a little Hill Country flair. Vista brewed this beer with traditional Belgian and French malts, hops and yeasts. Partnering with the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, we used their intimate knowledge of native species to infuse a spice unique to our neck of the woods called papaloquelite (or papalo, the Nahuatl word for butterfly). This beer pours with an amber hue and is subtle and savory.  5.0% abv.  0.5L pour.

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.
