Previously, we’ve covered Dripping Springs wineries you can visit for tastings, food, and music. Some people love their ale and are always looking to discover new ones. One of the best things about living in the Caliterra community is that you’re close to a variety of breweries.
Before you visit, head to the brewery’s website and Facebook page for hours, prices, safety rules, and offerings. Some have an open house or set days and times for tours. To parents of younger children, a few breweries welcome families. It can make for a fun and educational family outing.
Between the wineries and this post, you should be set for New Year’s. Happy New Year!
