New Mill Capital is also entertaining offers on all of the equipment or the real estate separately.
Tim Watters, Principal at New Mill Capital stated “Two Wheel Brewery is the ideal location for someone to break into the suburban Austin area.

Original Brewery Profile:
It was during a mountain bike ride that Marc Woffenden met his wife, Alexis. When they took the relationship to the next level – no not like that – which was motorcycle riding, the name of their brewery was already taking shape. Two Wheels Brewing Co. opened in March 2017 in Buda and was built with the future in mind.
Like many brewers, Marc started brewing with a home kit. He was given one as a Christmas present from his father in law, and his first beer was a stout. “I’ll never forget my first beer,” Marc said. “I remember bottling it and wondering what it would taste like. When I opened the first one, I heard a whist. I thought that’s a good sign. Then I tasted it. Now, I have tasted a lot of homebrews and a lot of them don’t come out very well, but this one was great! I was hooked!” Alexis recalled, “After that, he kept bringing home more and more parts for brewing operation. It seemed like every day he was bringing home something new.”
He was reading everything he could get his hands on and eventually decided it was time to get serious.
Cradling his newborn in one arm while navigating computer screens with his free hand, Marc, a fourth-grade teacher, began studying the art of brewing online at the American Brewer’s Guild where he studied Brewing Science and Engineering. He finished up the course in Middlebury, Vermont in July 2012.
After completing school, Marc and Alexis, who is an engineer, considered numerous locations for the brewery with a few of them in Austin. Ultimately, they didn’t want to be in an industrial park with other businesses, so they went to Buda, got city council approval for the town’s first brewery, and began construction in 2015.
The indoor taproom is a modest size at 50 by 100 feet. They can close a large garage door if it gets too hot or too cold. There also are shaded areas outside with picnic benches.
Their capacity is astonishing, and there’s still room to grow. With three 40-barrel fermenters, a 20-barrel fermenter, a 40-barrel bright tank, a 20 –barrel bright tank, and a 20-barrel brewhouse, they can make a lot of beer fast.
Marc is planning for improvements in the future like adding more picnic tables, adding outdoor lights, more shade, a fenced area, and possibly enlarge the taproom.
Their mission is to be a part of the community and to grow with it. They are considering making the taproom available for rent for private events. Their beers currently are available at local restaurants including Sean Patrick’s Pub, Casa Maria’s, and LongHorn Steak House. A portion of their Buda-ful Blonde sales goes to local charities.
“Sometimes I walk back there (in the brewing area), look around and I’m just stunned. I mean the dream really did come true,” Marc said. “Every week is better than the one before, but we are ready to ramp up.”
