Austin’s burgeoning beer scene continues to grow despite naysayers touting a looming burst in the craft beer bubble. Recently, the city was even recognized by VinePair as the top beer destination in the world. Several new breweries opened their doors over the past year, with several more getting ready for their 2019 debut. Here are six must-try new breweries in the metro area and just beyond the city.
Vista Brewing is situated just outside of Austin on 21-acres in picturesque Driftwood, Texas. The expansive property features a brewery, tasting room, restaurant, apiary, farm and will eventually include accommodations for overnight guests, making it truly a destination brewery. Innovation is at the heart of the beer program that was founded by award-winning brewer Josh Watterson and is now led by head brewer Pat Korn who will be expanding their wine barrel aging program.
