Austin Area Brewery Map

While, sadly, I cannot write an events article as of late, I am going to try to keep of list of new beer releases that are happening around town. I think we all would like to be able to eventually meet up with friends at our local taprooms, the next best thing we can do now is to buy the beer and bring it home.

Breweries re-opening this week:  

Breweries that are re-opening their doors after initially shutting down due to Covid-19.
