    In honor of this year’s Barks For Beers, we’re having a day for you to pamper your pup!

    We’ll have local vendors selling pup goodies, Barks For Beers Pawsports to get you and your pup out there brewery hoping, and Sours Portrait Studio – Puppy Edition so you can capture that special moment with you and your pup.

      When we taste Tropícal Brut, we picture a swanky seventies pool vibe. We’re embracing it and hosting a screening of America Hustle in our brew space. Think drive-in movie theatre but with pools! We’ll have reserved pool spots and open faux lawn seating available.

      Each ticket gets you our newest 12oz glass with four beer pours, pool toys, some sweet cheap 70’s sunglasses, popcorn, and a Tropícal Brut shotgun intermission!

      BYOBT (bring your own beach towel) for lawn seating or upgrade to
      a VIP pool for two. Pools come with a commemorative Tropícal Brut t-shirt, signed art print, and premium viewing. Pools will be empty so you can fill them with cushy blankets and pillows. OR, be bold – break out your swimsuit and have us fill it with water.

      Seating is very limited so make sure to snag your spot sooner than later!

        Still need a kite for the Zilker Park Kite Festival? We’re having a workshop in our brewspace so you can make your own, unique kite just in time for the festivities!
        Elsie will guide you through the process with all the materials and sour beer provided by Blue Owl Brewing.
        Reserve your spot today!

              We’re welcoming traveling pop-up dinner Outstanding in the Field to Vista on their 2019 Winter Tour on Feb. 12 for a very special pairing dinner. We’ve been following them for years and share their vision of creating “An adventure, a destination, an experience.”

              We’re proud to host one of their beautiful dinners here in Driftwood, with Chef Stiver using fresh produce grown by our own Farmer Travis in our onsite 1-acre farm. From the reception through the four course dinner, we’ll be pairing the dishes with a range of special Vista brews by Brewmaster Josh.

              Outstanding in the Field was founded in 1999 by artist and chef Jim Denevan as the world’s first pop-up restaurant – in a farm field. Rather than source ingredients and bring them to the restaurant, they created a restaurant at the source. OITF has become known for creating one long dining table, set in beautiful locations. The farmer’s story is recognized and celebrated with a tour of the farm, as well as during each course of the meal.

              OITF has visited all 50 states in the U.S. and 15 countries around the globe. Hundreds of the world’s most honored chefs have cooked in their field kitchen.

                Lick Honest Ice Creams and Celis Brewery are collaborating for the very first time this November for an evening of delicious treats and tasty beer. The pairing will benefit the Central Texas Food Bank. This food bank shares free food and knowledge on low-cost, healthy eating with families in need and makes food affordable for charitable and government partners, allowing them to increase the scope of their programming.

                A ticket will get you 5 beer samples (5 oz) with 5 ice creams (1 oz) selected from Celis’ and Lick’s delicious seasonal menus. As you enjoy your sips and scoops, Celis’ Tap Room Manager Teresa Mikulastik and Lick’s Production Manager Rocio Hess will be there to educate you on the pairings.
