Vista Brewing is a destination brewery just outside of Austin and at the gateway to the Central Texas Wine Trail in the peaceful Hill Country town of Driftwood. The 21-acre property is set to open spring 2018 with a brewery & tasting room, farm table food concept and outdoor event space. There will be an onsite farm, orchard and apiary, surrounded by acres of forageable fruits, nuts, flowers and herbs, all of which will be a part of our seasonal food service and brewing programs. A large composting program is an important piece of the onsite sustainability initiatives. Future phases include an eco-friendly tiny home hotel, event pavilion and barrel house.
