It’s officially spring. With Austin’s weather at its best, this is the perfect time to explore our local Austin breweries and dive into the craft beer movement.
Pale ale, lager, porter, stout, and more! With 36 craft breweries in Central Texas that produced a combined 178,219 barrels of beer in 2017 (thanks Austin Business Journal for the stat), there are plenty of choices to choose from. That’s about four microbreweries per 100,000 residents!
