If you want to get a feel for a city, there’s no better way than to sample their local craft breweries as they often infuse locally available flavors for a taste tour of the town. Don’t look past the names of the brew because they often allude to historically significant events within the city.

Although Austin is newer to the craft brewery scene, with their oldest brewery less than 30 years old, it's rapidly expanding. Austin currently has 37 breweries within city limits, so there certainly isn’t a shortage of breweries to choose from. Check out our list of the 10 best craft breweries in Austin.
