Best So What if It's Not in Austin Brewery: Twisted X Brewing Co.

Austin is lucky that it has a surfeit of breweries in our urban core, but sometimes it's nice to take a day trip. On a crisp autumn day (you know, the two or three autumn days we get before our two weeks of winter), there's nothing that takes the edge off of city living like a trip to Dripping Springs' Twisted X. It's not the most flashy tasting room, but sometimes all you need is a picnic table, a solid beer, and a Hill Country breeze.

23455 W. RR 150, Dripping Springs, 512/829-5323, www.twistedxbrewing.com
