Southeast Austin brewery Hi Sign Brewing is moving to a new facility twice its current size in the Govalle neighborhood. Its new address is two miles away from its original home, at 730 Shady Lane, with an expected move sometime in March 2022.
Hi Sign is known for its stylish can design and brews like Violet the Blueberry Blonde (blonde ale with blueberry). Because the new facility is bigger (more than 12,500 square feet), the brewery will be able to ramp up production, which allows for more freedom with limited-release beers.
The new taproom will have outdoor games, food trucks, a covered outdoor patio with live music, and a private event space. The Govalle space was built in the 1950s by RC Cola, and was previously a Shiner distribution center and then Hill Country Brewing & Bottling.
Founder and CEO Mark Phillippe opened Hi Sign Brewing in 2017 at 1201 Bastrop Highway.
