"Don't cross her, don't boss her." One look at the tagline for Oasis, Texas Brewing Com­pany's Luchesa Lager, and I knew I'd encountered a brewery after my own heart. Housed in the Mansfield private event venue at the Oasis, Texas Brewing Company's Lake Travis development, the recently opened brewery and taproom stand out as a must-visit lake destination. Offering exquisite views from its third floor location, the brewery's rustic architecture pairs perfectly with the modern brewhouse. The beers, created by head brewer Spencer Tielkemeier, formerly of Live Oak Brewing Company and Uncle Billy's, are highly-sessionable (less than 5% ABV) and equally delicious. Flagship beers include Slow Ride, an American pale ale made with Cascade, Chinook, and Columbus hops; the above-mentioned Luchesa Lager, an unfiltered pils brewed in the traditional German Kellerbier style; and London Homesick Ale, an English-style ale. While the recent addition of a canning line means beers can soon be enjoyed from the comfort of home, the attentive staff, expansive views, plus affordable pints and beer flights make this a necessary stop at the lake. – Anna Toon
