The area's oldest craft beer brewery Live Oak Brewing Company took the first steps towards their new facility today with a groundbreaking ceremony. The new space is on a riverfront complex north of the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. According to Austin American-Statesman writer Arianna Auber, the brewery will be on two acres, with a 22,000 square foot building, complete with a "disc golf course, nature trails and eventually a boathouse on the Colorado River."
