One of my friends here in Austin is soon leaving the great state of Texas for a new adventure and I’m super excited for her and all the things that await! Anyway, one of the things we decided was to try and do some Austin type things before she leaves. So last month a few of us headed out to Thirsty Planet, a popular brewery out in Austin.
Minus the fact that it was blazing hot (and I don’t know if the ac was working inside), it was a fabulous trip! It’s always fun to tour and see how different breweries make their beer. Thirsty Planet fits Austin so perfectly as well and worth checking out if you enjoy trying local beers and find yourself in Central Texas.
They have three year around brews and my favorite was definitely Thirsty Goat. Perfect for football season and grilled burgers or hot dogs!
- American-style Amber Ale
- Sweet, Malty and rich deep flavor with a spicy finish
- American-style India Pale Ale
- Light caramel sweetness followed by a bitter punch in the mouth with a long finish
- Light American-style Wheat
- Crisp and refreshing, light citrusy notes, clean finish
I liked that they had games available for use – it makes for a great afternoon of conversation and laughs. A perfect fall day would make the visit even better, you know when you can sit outside and not turn crispy.
What are some local hot spots where you’re at?
