Dripping Springs Brewery Tour

Texas Tipsy Tours visits the best Dripping Springs breweries, with pick-up and drop-off in Austin and the Texas Hill Country. 

Just Southwest of Austin, Texas, lies many large breweries with beautiful tasting rooms on stunning acres filled with expansive oak trees, all crafting Texas beer. While visiting Austin or the Texas Hill Country, get the ultimate brewery experience with a private Dripping Springs Brewery Tour with Texas Tipsy Tours!

Austin, Texas, is predicted to be the top beer destination in the world for 2019! This comes as no surprise to Texans who have visited the unique microbreweries popping up all the time in Austin, featuring unique vibes and hoppy IPAs. Texans are harsh critics, too. It takes a lot to impress and stand out amongst the many Austin breweries! 

In the Texas hill country, you will find proud locals who have lived there for generations. These people are the true Texans you hear about. No, they don’t ride a horse to work every day (#Texas), but they are the kindest people you have and will ever meet. They don’t know a stranger. The best advice I could give you would be to pull up a chair, grab a Texas craft beer, and chat for a while.

Top Texas Hill Country Breweries: 

Vista Brewing– Driftwood, Texas

This stop is typically a favorite on our Dipping Springs Brewery Tour! Owners Kent and Karen put thought into every inch of this brewery, starting at its’ stunning modern chic tasting room, complete with the perfect marriage of rustic wood, metal, and clean lines. Their beer is brewed by a passionate, award-winning brewmaster who creates incredible beer. Their Collaboration Series is unique to Vista Brewing, highlighting local Texas artisans and non-profits, developing a recipe, and brewing together. Their beers are influenced by European traditions- balanced and approachable. Like their smoked Le Saison sausage, their beer is best paired with their season farm-to-table, locally sourced bites. Eat and drink to your heart’s content outside in their beer garden, many acres under vast shade trees with picnic tables, a stage, and trails. Bonus- enjoy a cold craft beer while listening to live music that frequently occurs at the brewery- a Saturday well-spent! Vista also sells beer-to-go with various options. Trust me, you will want to take some home!

Not a beer drinker? Vista Brewing also offers a curated list of wines and local ciders!

Other Breweries to Substitute:

12 Fox Brewery:

12 Fox Brewery’s name has a special meaning- named after the army unit the owners, Joe and Aaron, served in a while in Germany. While in Germany, they discovered German beer, which inspired their brewery here today!

12 Fox features a Biergarten with backyard games (very family-friendly, with a playground for the kids), frequent live music, and food trucks. It’s a great space to hang out outdoors and enjoy the Texas hill country.
