About Vista Brewing

Vista Brewing is a destination brewery in the beautiful Hill Country town of Driftwood, just southwest of Austin. The 21-acre ranch includes a brewery & tasting room, farm-to-table restaurant, 1-acre organic farm, apiary, live music, walking trails and private event spaces.

Vista’s beer program celebrates traditional recipes using Hill Country ingredients, with a range of styles including easy drinking beer garden brews, unique collaboration projects and an award-winning wine barrel aging program. Vista also offers a curated selection of wine & cider along with a full lunch and dinner menu. The Vista Grill sources proteins from local ranchers, including those who we work with to feed Vista’s spent brewing grain, and strives to source as much as possible from local purveyors. Vista’s onsite vegetable farm provides much of the veggies used in our menus, and all dishes rotate seasonally.

Vista Brewing was named “Best New Brewpub in Austin” from the Austin Beer Guide in 2018, “Brewery of the Year” from CultureMap Austin in 2019 and Best of ATX from Austin Monthly in 2021. Vista won “Best Limited Release Beer” from the Austin Beer Guide for two years in a row for Rosanna (2018) and Stonewall (2019). Stonewall (2020 & 2022), Hive Mind (2021) and Dark Skies (2022) were awarded the national Good Food Award, which takes into account local sourcing of ingredients and sustainable business operations. Vista also operates a Tasting Room in the heart of San Antonio.
