Vista makes every effort to remind you of the fact that their aesthetically top-shelf Hill Country brewery and taproom, along with their 21-acre agricultural showpiece, is truly a sight to behold. IT’S RIGHT THERE IN THE NAME, MAN! Recently, we called Vista less a brewpub and more of a spontaneous food and beer festival, where revelers participate in classic Texas-isms like dancing to really good Old 97’s cover bands and drinking heat-slaying lagers near a big tree. It’s a real party over there. Josh Watterson, Vista’s head brewer, curates a beer program featuring three branches of his kickassery: Beer Garden Beers (the refreshing year-rounders), The Barrel Program (beer they throw into freshly procured wine barrels that make it taste fancy), and Collaborations (collaborations).
