Top 5 Austin Breweries

15 Mar 2021

Austin, Texas, is perfect for travelers seeking great food, a vibrant music scene, and abundant open air. A booming food scene goes hand-in-hand with stellar beer. With over 58 breweries in Austin and central Texas, it can be hard to decide where to go. Below we have crafted a list to help you with that decision. 

1. Jester King Brewery

Jester King Brewery is easily one of the best breweries in the country, let alone one of the best breweries in Austin. The idyllic setting in Texas Hill Country pairs beautifully with each beer served at the four bars on the ranch. Grab a pizza or some charcuterie for lunch, order a draft, and soak up the view.

2. Hops & Grain Brewing

An eco-conscious East Austin brewery that produces hand-crafted ales and handmade dog treats? Sign us up! Make yourself at home in the Hops & Grain taproom and grab a bite to eat on the weekends from one of the rotating food trucks. 

3. Lazarus Brewing Company

In 2010, Lazarus Brewing Company built its own ten-barrel system with a cozy taproom for the community to enjoy, right in the heart of East Austin. Chill on the patio with an English, German, Belgian, or American old-world-style beer.

4. Live Oak Brewing Company

Live Oak Brewing Company is located along the picturesque Colorado River among groves of live oaks in Del Valle, but still just minutes from downtown Austin. Live Oak uses old-world brewing methods to produce its lagers and ales. Sip a pint in the shady outdoor Biergarten or the indoor taproom.

5. Zilker Brewing Co.

Head from Downtown to East Austin and visit what The Austin Chronicle called the most underrated brewery in Austin. Zilker Brewing Company is an urban craft brewery and taproom focused on quality beer, fostering community, and craft beer accessibility.
