Vista Brewing | Dripping Springs Local Love

Vista Brewing, located in Driftwood, Texas, is a place where you can relax with family and friends for an hour, an afternoon or days on end.

I took my family tonight, because surprisingly, we had never been! The weather was warm after weeks of cold, winter weather and we needed some fresh air and sunshine.

It was a beautiful place and we will definitely be back!

Solomon said the food was a “10/10” and Sam loved his chicken strips! The playground was pretty fun and we also took a nature walk to see the cows and bees at the back of the 21 acre property.

I’m not actually much of a beer drinker (ok, not at ALL a beer drinker- ha!), but I really loved this place! The scenery was epic and I just couldn’t stop taking photos!

This brewery is situated in close proximity to Dripping Springs, which is known for its vibrant brewery scene. In fact, Vista Brewing is part of the “Drinking Springs” brewery trail, which includes several other breweries in the surrounding area. With its commitment to sustainability and use of locally sourced ingredients, Vista Brewing offers a unique and memorable experience for visitors.

Co-founders Karen and Kent Killough were inspired by their time living abroad in the UK and their travels around the world to create Vista Brewing, which offers an experience centered around high-quality food and drink, excellent service, and a welcoming environment. We had the Driftwood Cheeseburger with bacon jam (yum!) and the boys had the kids’ meal chicken strips. The chicken strips were some of the lightest and best we’ve had!

The team at Vista Brewing is passionate about sustainability, and their agricultural roots are a big part of their vision.

They have restored part of their pasture to farmland and are planting an orchard, herbs, vegetables, and berry patches to supply their restaurant and unique beer recipes.

They also have a 16-hive apiary and a robust compost program, completing the cycle from farm to table and back again. We walked back to the beehives, but the kids were a little nervous to get too close!

One unique feature of Vista Brewing is its outdoor play area, which is perfect for children to explore and have fun in the shade of the live oaks.

Adults can relax and enjoy the “outdoor rooms” dotted around the beer garden under the motts of oaks.

Vista Brewing has plans to construct a series of eco-friendly cottages, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the Hill Country and stay overnight under the tree canopies. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting project, which will add another fun way to come and visit the area with a unique experience!
