The area hosts a thriving Men­non­ite farming community, so the Brewhouse has a reliable supply of organically raised produce and meats to work with. Friday night is Steak Night, when locally raised grass-fed beefsteak is offered; the menu also boasts barbecue pastured chicken and pastured pork ribs, Texas trout, and hamburgers made with 100% Bastrop-raised ground beef.
