(512) Brewing Company

Day Off!

(512) Brewing Company is a microbrewery based in Austin offering over 30 craft beer varieties. The company is proud to use only the freshest local and organic ingredients while consciously controlling the brewing process up to distribution. The company is completely independent of the big brands, and features draft beers sold in reusable kegs. Instead of Bisphenol-A (BPA) lined aluminum, they serve their beers in durable glass. Perhaps a testament to their popularity, they were the largest buyers of organic malted barley in Texas in 2016. Catch them at over 715 locations around Texas. Even better, for $12 per person, drop by for their open house on Saturdays from noon to 4:00pm. The fee includes a tour of the brewery's facilities, 6 samples, and a logo glass. You can also attend one of their Cellar Sessions, an intimate live music session filmed at the brewery featuring a musical artist.

11 Below Brewing Company

Day Off!

11 Below Brewing Company currently offers 13 varieties of craft beer – so, no, their name does not refer to the excellent beers they brew in North Houston. Here’s a hint – their co-founders worked at Texas oilfields at some point, but their love for beers led them to brewing beers instead. Four out of the 13 varieties they brew are available all year round, while the rest are seasonal offerings or specials so call ahead before heading out the door. All are available on draft while a selection is available in 12 oz cans at your favorite retailers. Oh – and all have clever names with “best paired with” recommendations. The company has a tasting room open to the public. Hours are Thursdays to Fridays from 5pm to 9pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 9pm.  Admission is free, and they’re also available for private events.

12 Fox Beer Co.

Day Off!

Joe and Aaron are army buddies and co-founders of 12 Fox Beer Co. After being stationed in Germany where they got to develop a taste for authentic German beers, both went their separate ways. Having reconnected years later, they decide to establish their own small batch, high-quality European master-crafted beer. They keep things simple – just like the Germans – by using single-sourced malt. And what’s German beer without a biergarten? With their wives' help, they opened one in the Fall of 2018, and now operate a tap room called The Fox Hole in Dripping Springs. Aaron’s wife Melissa creates delicious baked goods from spent grains for the guests. Both couples are busy transforming a Hill County backroad into a German biergarten and giving the community a unique experience. 12 Fox is family- and pet-friendly with a large covered patio, outdoor biergarten, kids’ play area, and small dog park. It also serves other drinks like wine, cider, and mead.

3 Nations Brewing Co.

Day Off!

3 Nations Brewing Co. Founder and brewmaster Gavin Secchi and his four partners combine ancient European brewing traditions with American innovation and ingenuity to come up with its line of craft beers.

4th Tap Brewing Cooperative

Closed Now!

The 4th Tap Brewing Cooperative is Texas’ first worker-owned brewery, and one of the first in the U.S.  It took the founders 6 years of planning, and they finally opened in November 2015. Today, each person you see making, selling, or serving their delicious craft beers owns a piece of 4th Tap. The brewery is located in north Austin. The taproom was “designed to bring together [the] neighborhood… and share 4th Tap’s love of beer, art, music, and much more.” And, wrestling is one of those “much more”. The taproom is open daily and there’s a wrestling ring in the back for occasional wrestling matches. “Party World Rasslin’” (PWR) is one of the special events aligned with their mantra “Brew. Share. Party. Repeat.” There are three “core beer line-up” and several others on seasonal rotation at the taproom. Some of the varieties come in cans and are available for purchase.

5 Stones Artisan Brewery

Day Off!

5 Stones Artisan Brewery was founded in 2012 by Seth Weatherly. Currently based in New Braunfels, 2017 was a big year for 5 Stones. Starting out as a hobby homebrewer until the company’s founding, Seth now works with Garrett Crowell, a former head brewer at another company. Seth also moved the brewery to its present-day 19-acre location from its previous 1200 square feet space in a Cibolo industrial park. With his first brew, the award-winning Aloha Piña, and dozens of other handcrafted recipes, the company continues to brew seasonal artisan beers at the new location. The place is “a little hidden… with abundant outdoor seating and space for dogs to play and kids to run”. Complementing the indoor setup is an outdoor seating area. It's a “beautiful and relaxing atmosphere” with fire pits, food trucks on occasion, and live music. In case you’re wondering, “5 Stones” refers to the little-known bible trivia that David carefully chose 5 stones to beat Goliath.

Some beers are available in 6 or 4 packs, while others are available only on draft or showcased as a limited release.

903 Brewers

Day Off!

The Sasquatch Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout is one of 903 Brewers’ award-winning beer, and its biggest triumph so far. It won the silver in the 2015 Great American Beer Festival in the aged beer category. The brewery is owned by husband and wife team Jeremy and Natalie Roberts, and they opened the brewery’s door to the public in 2013. Their first hits, The Chosen One Coconut Ale and Roo’s Red Ale continue to be bestsellers. The taproom at Sherman serves both the mainstays as well as seasonal and special release brews. It also serves food courtesy of the Grilled Cheese Company & Pies, a company owned by Jeremy’s parents. Here’s how good their beers are from a reviewer: “I never thought I would be one of those people… who will drive for a great beer…[even if it’s] about 45 minutes outside of Dallas.” The brewery hosts trivia nights movie nights, too, so go catch a Sasquatch!

Acopon Brewing Co

Closed Now!

The Acopon Brewing Company was established by the same group who gave Dripping Springs The Barber Shop. Established to provide a focus on English-style ales, the team opened another taproom just a stone’s throw away from the Barber Shop's location. The name is taken from a “restorative or cordial medicine or application”. The taproom opened in September 2017. It provides a selection of craft beers – not just English ales. It even has wine, cider, and sodas for non-fans of craft beers. The brewery follows an “old world model where each town in Germany or England would have their own favorite local brewery”, and the beer could only be found and enjoyed there. They have board games for use by guests, and welcome dogs into the taproom. They don’t serve food, so guests are also welcome to bring food in.

Anvil Brewing

Day Off!

Anvil Brewing is housed in an old and historically significant building in Pittsburg. Armed with an idea to create a gathering place for a small town’s community, husband and wife Byron and Kristin Aldredge moved into Pittsburg and established the brewery. The long-shuttered Pilgrim's Pride Feed Store was once part of the town’s booming chicken business, but the 100-year-old building stood abandoned since 1961. With an economic development fund grant from the city as seed money, the Aldredges’ idea soon took flight. They installed craft beer equipment, refurbished the place, cooked up some mouthwatering menu items, and the result was a great venue that was a combination pub, dance hall with live music, and venue for private events. At any given time, they have five craft beers on tap, and their customers rave about the sandwiches. “Best Reuben ever!”

Armadillo Ale Works

Open Now!

It was a long road to opening their own brewery for Armadillo Ale Works founders Bobby Mullins and Yianni Arestis. The brewery finally opened its doors on June 1, 2018, but their story starts much earlier. It actually starts in 2010 when the resilient duo won a grant to pursue their dream of brewing their own beers. Since then, they’ve run a successful Kickstarter campaign, had a location deal that went south, and overcame alienating their fans because of a supply disruption.  Uniquely, the brewery claims the distinction of having won prestigious industry awards without ever having its own brewing facility. Now settled at their Denton location, they continue to craft their award-winning beers and sodas. They even brew coffee at the taproom. The space is also available for special event venue rentals, with liquid refreshments from the brewery, of course.

Astral Brewing

Day Off!

Astral Brewing just opened in March 2019 and the reviews after just six months of operation blow the competition away. Or you might even say out of the galaxy. Co-founders Jose Ceja and Alex McDonald seem to have a winner on their hands, with these kinds of reviews:
  • Overall this is a perfect Kolsch. I struggle with rating beers a solid 5.0 because that means there’s nothing they can do to improve it. But a perfect appearance, a perfect aroma, a perfect mouthfeel and flavor… well, that’s a 5 star beer, y’all.” – from Beer Chronicle for their Astral Kraftwerk Kolsch
  • “Very fun little brewery! They have ping pong tables, good beers, music, food trucks and games galore.” – a random review from a random review site
The brewery is also very dog-friendly and currently offers “$2 off selected beers during televised local favorite football games”.
