BEER BREWING, BREW PUBS & DISTILLERIES
IN THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

Beer The Hill Country can hold its own consuming beer, and has been since our beginning days. No doubt our significant German influence has something to do with this and the traditions that go with it.

Did you know the Hill Country is becoming better known for beer production by microbrewers? From personal experience, these craft brewers make some excellent beer!

Here are the brewing companies, brew pubs and related resources (including home brewing) available in our area.

Some are strictly brewers, some have a restaurant at the brewery, and others have both plus live entertainment.

And, we have a growing and impressive group of distillers making award-winning vodka, whiskey and more.

Most craft brewers have tours and tastings. So, plan your trip and Enjoy!

SIX HEALTHY REASONS TO DRINK MORE BEER: http://www.healthhacks.be/drinking-more-beer -->


THE TIE BETWEEN THE SPIRIT AND "SPIRITS"




The tie between the spirit and the "spirits" goes back a long way in history:
  • St. Patrick used beer to lure heathens to convert.
  • Charlemagne encouraged brewing at monasteries.
  • Beer was such a staple that the first permanent building the Pilgrims constructed in the new world was a brewery.
  • Some researchers argue that the miracle where Jesus turns water into wine originally referred to beer.
