Austin runs on craft beer, and the city's ever-expanding brewery scene offers plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with your favorite hoppy beverages. This map highlights the best breweries with taprooms and/or tours in the Austin-area.
There are longtime offerings from Austin beer stalwarts like the relocated Live Oak Brewing Company, Real Ale Brewing Co., and the idyllic Jester King Brewery out in the Hill Country. Find Tex-Mex beer from Twisted X Brewing Company, sours at Blue Owl Brewing, and feel charitable with Save the World. Most offer outdoor spaces, food trucks, and handy glasses.
Drink and tour these fine establishments without having to worry about driving home by taking an ATXcursions tour or the Twisted Texas tour.
