The Complete List of Austin-Area Breweries and Brewpubs (Summer 2020)

July 8, 2020 Caitlin J
Austin Brewery Guide

I love you so much.

It’s a simple phrase and one of the most popular murals in Austin. It also sums up how I feel about this city’s beer scene.

With over 58 breweries in Austin and central Texas, there’s a lot to love about our craft beer. I could go on and on about my favorite spots or the best IPAs at the most kid-friendly breweries. And I do, that’s why I have this beer blog.

NOTE: Due to Covid-19, many Austin-area taprooms are closed, but most are still offering pick-up or delivery. Some are offering outdoor seating with reservations. My suggestion is to visit the social media of the below breweries (or call them directly) to see what they are currently offering.

As of July 27th, breweries offering food have their taprooms open. Please visit my Austin brewpub guide to find a great local brewery you can visit right now.

Austin Breweries

Whether you just moved to Texas or you’re planning what is sure to be an unforgettable beer-cation, this list should be your launching pad to Austin breweries.

It’s a long list, but I’m here to guide you. That’s why I’ve linked ‘further reading’ to help you understand what makes the beer culture in central Texas so special.

    Do the breweries listed without a Kitchen allow for people to bring their own food in?

    • Caitlin J February 20, 2020 at 12:03 pm

      Most of the times yes! I would call ahead to be sure.

  • Chelsea Muench February 20, 2020 at 10:04 am
