    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.

    Visiting breweries is fun and I don’t even drink beer. There is something about learning what goes into a beer, the back story of the brewery and what makes them unique that is interesting. People are passionate about beer so whether they are drinking it, talking about it or brewing it, it’s a fun topic.

    You just go out to the brewery and stop by for some samples or you can go on Saturday and take a tour. Tours are at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. they last about 45 minutes and offer you the opportunity to sample beers that are not available in the tap room.

    Hops and Grain is a local sustainable brewing company that is busy doing their part to keep planet Earth as healthy as can be.

    Another cool thing about Hops and Grain is that they make dog biscuits out of the grains when they are done with the brewing process. This is so unique, so Austin and so something to get for your dog friend to try!
