Dozens of kegs full of authentic craft beer (wine available too), fresh boiled crawfish served to you in front of live music, what could be better?

    Here you’ll enjoy good food, music, dancing, exciting entertainment and games, Texan and domestic beer, and the finest local artists.

      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.
