Tex Mex Brews at Twisted X

We are lucky to have so many great craft breweries in the heart of Austin, but sometimes it's fun to head to the outskirts of town. And fun is definitely what you'll have when you head to Twisted X Brewery near Driftwood

Check out unique Tex Mex beers at Twisted X Brewery

Specializing in Tex Mex beer, Twisted X is all about beating that Hill Country heat. Their beers are crisp and refreshing, ranging from IPAs and pilsners to lagers and stouts. Their Fuego pilsner even contains a bit of jalapeno to really add some bite, but most of their beers get their Mexican flavor from yellow corn sourced locally.

Create your own beer flight - many of the items rotate seasonally!

Curious about the Tex Mex flavors? Luckily for you, Twisted X makes it easy to sample up to 6 different brews at $2 each. On our visit, we tried several lagers and their special for the day, Stouty McStoutface (seriously, that's the name). They even offer the option to turn your beer of choice into a Michelada or a Shandy (beer + lemonade) for an extra dollar. The Shandy was the perfect way to cool off in the hot summer sun.

Custom-made beer paddles perfect for sampling the many unique varieties

Once you're done sampling, grab a pint or make it a shandy!

Once you make your selections, grab your handy beer flight paddle and head out to the picnic tables for some relaxing hill country vibes and maybe even a round of cornhole. Take note of the funky tree sculpture that just adds to the overall charm.

If you work up an appetite, never fear. There is a delicious food truck on site serving up all your favorite bar grub and sandwiches. We opted for the pulled pork sandwich for a very specific reason - fried onions.  I actually heard another patron order theirs without the onions and assumed they had lost their mind! Healthy? Absolutely not. Delicious? Heck yes. But hey, at least two of us shared.

You might be interested to know that Twisted X is fairly kid-friendly. There's not a ton for them to do, but there are open areas to run around, bean bags to toss, and an overall relaxing vibe that's great for all ages.

Next time you're looking for a fun spot off the beaten path, sip on some Tex Mex brews while enjoying the Hill Country ambiance at Twisted X brewery.
