Vista Brewing (13551 FM150 W, Driftwood, TX 78619)

12PM - 6PM

This is a free event, but we do encourage you to preregister. Please click here to Register


Your sponsorship will not only help create a wonderful event celebrating all things Driftwood but will specifically support immediate improvements to the community center with the addition of a fire door, much needed roof repairs to the garage, upgrade the water and septic systems, and overall revitalization to enhance the capacity and appeal of the community center as a meeting place for our Driftwood neighbors. Our goal between now and April is $50,000 towards the building fund. We hope that you will join us at a level that aligns with your passion for Driftwood and the mission of the DHCS.

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, 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 Texas wines & ciders. The Vista’s restaurant sources proteins from local ranchers, including those who 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 dishes rotate seasonally.

About Driftwood HCS

The Driftwood Historical Conservation Society (DHCS) strives to preserve and enhance Driftwood and the Onion Creek Valley’s (OCV) rural beauty, heritage, and sense of community and belonging.

What is of equal importance to maintaining Driftwood’s rural environment is to maintain Driftwood’s agrarian social culture including its: deeply personal relationships to the environment and mankind; a strong sense of community and belonging; and preserving and enhancing the existing high social quality of life that transcends all race, religion, ethnicity, education, and age differences, to form a community of unity--the community of Driftwood residents.
