Adair – Kölsch

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.  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

Balanced / cookie-like

Gold medal – 2018 US Open Beer Championship

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.

Hensel – Helles

CRISP / DRY / GOLDEN

A classic German style and the Brewmaster’s go-to beer.  Our Munich Helles lager is a bit more malty, with a similar hop character to a Czech Pilsner.  A balanced and drinkable lager that pours a bright golden color with a bready and crisp body.  5.0%.  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.

Rosanna - Wine-Barrel-Aged Brett Ale

We released this unique horizontal barrel project last August and it’s been off of draft for several months. The batch was split to age in freshly-emptied Anglianico, Tannat, Petite Sirah and Tempranillo barrels from Bending Branch Winery in Comfort, Texas. Now she’s back, and we’re pouring the last of those single varietals used in blending.  The base was fermented and aged on a strain of Brettanomyces known as Lambicus, often found in traditional lambics, this strain produces a slight cherry-pie-like aroma and flavor and lots of earthy Brett. The barrels give a pale rose-hue this ale has aromas and flavors of pear, stone fruit, and leather.

NAMED FOR: The wife of William Barrett Travis, a founding father of Texas. Vista sits today in the center of his 1835 colonial land grant.

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.
