I'm not sure how long the restaurant has been open, but the hostess/waitstaff were fun/pleasant if not terribly experienced. We ate inside, which was airy and seemed newly furnished, but even indoors, we had a nice view of the Hill Country scenery.

We were served a free "appetizer" in the form of popcorn, and also enjoyed the appetizer we ordered, fried calamari.The fish and chips were good, but my wife's Brontosaurus burger was delicious. Loved the garlic french fries. I'd say portion sizes were average for the price.

As for their own beers, they offered an IPA, hefe, porter, and something they called a Transition Ale. The porter stood out to me, and I had a pint of that. The other three beers had a lot in common, namely a lot of crisp citrus, but they weren't bad. Also on the beer menu was Real Ale's Fireman's #4 and Brown Ale and a few others. I'd like to see a couple more house offerings (the flight/sampler of six beers included their four plus Real Ale's two), but I'm sure that'll come in time.

As we left, a zydeco band had begun playing out on the deck, and we stuck around for a few songs. All in all, a great meal and a nice atmosphere.

Went by here during a recent trip to the Hill Country. The place is actually known as Brewster's Pizza and there were a lot of people eating pizza. I didn't try the pizza, but the amount of people at the place leads me to believe it is probably at least decent. The beer on the other hand was not too great. There were only two beers on tap, both were served in gigantic margarita goblets and both were not good. There was a third house beer listed on tap called Chimay. I assumed it just meant it was one of the three Chimays, but someone else said it was a beer brewed at the location that was called Chimay. I didn't discover this until after I left so I can't confirm. One other issue was that the entire restaurant smelled like bleach. I guess it is from sanitizing something, but it really was overpowering and led almost everyone to sit on the patio. For good beer brewed in Wimberley, I suggest walking about 100 feet across the parking lot and hitting up Middleton Brewing.

Went down to San Marcos to help my brother check out the campus.

I hate IH-35 so we took the nice way home up 12 and through Wimberley.

Right at the T intersection of 12 and 32 just 5 minutes from San Marcos or Wimberley is a mountain lodge themed business development.

We saw the sign for Wimberley Brewery and being one who is always on the look out for local beer we had to stop.

Talked with the owner and their has been some drama with getting the brewery up and running. It used to be located in the building next door but there was a falling out with the partners on the food side of the business. Sounds like they are now sticking to Beer and Pizza to keep things simple. The link above is not working so here is the new website:

The place is owned by an ex-NFL player who is now running the pizzeria / brewery with his family. The place had just opened and he was letting his kids run the show for the evening. As a result we got to see some funny and cute family moments.

We also got some great beer and pizza. They only had two of the beers on tap at the time. The Brown ale was tasty but a little weak, not enough malt especially for the style. However the Red Bitter was very good, reminded me of a red ale version of a classic British ESB, lots of malt with nice hops crispness on the finish.

We got the whole wheat crust pizza with green olives and bell peppers. A little too much cheese for me, but most people don't complain about this kind of thing. The toppings where fresh and hand cut, no freezers or cans involved. The crust was crisp and flavorful, definitely made that day.

Overall very happy, another great addition to the local brewery scene. If you live in the SM / Wimberley area this is your local brewery so please support it! If you part of the Austin beer scene this place is worth the trip.
You'll get to have some tasty Pizza with you beer.

The make a smoked porter which I am hoping will be on tap soon!

went here on a rainy day and i was the only one in the place so perhaps the service i received was a bit better than the usual but it was a five if ive ever been to one. the bartender (brian i think) was very nice and told me all i wanted to know about the place. he also hooked me up with a free half of a margarita and two amazing black and tans (real ale lost gold ipa and victory storm king stout also real ale full moon pale rye ale and victory storm king stout) the real ale lost gold ipa ran out during my pour so i got that removed from my tab. it was awesome.

the one beer of theirs i had was really good. would really like to try more from them.

selection was quite small to be modest, but apparently plans are in the works to add a few more kegs. was very impressed by the presence of victory storm king stout.

reveiwing the food from a previous visit:
the food is nice but not very "pub" style. a place to go for a good meal but it wouldnt really be affordable for me to drink and snack. everything ive had tasted very good though.

gonna make this place a routine stop on my visits to the hill country.
