Austin’s list of breweries seems to grow bigger every week, but the real draw for parents are the ones with playgrounds! I want to
kiss shake hands fist bump the genius who came up with this concept, but instead I will just keep visiting all the Austin breweries with playgrounds. If you vote with your dollars, then I vote for more playgrounds!
Meanwhile Brewing, 3901 Promontory Point Dr, Austin
This is probably our favorite Austin brewery. It’s so hard to choose just one! But we really love the beers, the tree covered beer garden, the food trucks, the playground, and the turf covered soccer field for the kids to play on.
Beerburg Brewing, 13476 Fitzhugh Rd, Austin
We had a great time at Beerburg. The kids liked the slackline and natural play area. The ice cream was also a huge hit! The chai flavor pairs well with their stout, FYI. The indoors is just as fun as their beer garden and was a nice place to hang out when outside got a little too hot for our group. There are traditional tables and relaxing couches/lounge areas and the whole space is light, open, and airy.
Austin Beerworks, 3001 Industrial Terrace, Austin
There is a tiny playground here, so it made the list. It’s really more like turf-covered hills and yard games like Connect 4, but it’s enough to keep the kids occupied while you enjoy a beer and relax.
Austin Beerworks Sprinkle Valley, 10300 Springdale Rd, Austin
This is the new location for Austin Beerworks, and it’s a good one! They have a beautiful outdoor space with a shaded playground, toys, and disc golf. There’s also an indoor “Family Room” with tv shows for kids, toys, and games (all in the AC!) They also have hats, sunscreen, and bug spray to borrow if you forgot yours and want to sit outside.
Jester King Brewery, 13187 Fitzhugh Rd, Austin
Jester King has always been a family favorite, with the wide open space to play and the goats, but they recently added a playground and we could not be more excited!
Slackers Brewing Co, 12233 Ranch Rd 620 N #204, Austin
A new coffee shop/ brewery up north with a little indoor play space for kids, as well as foosball, games, books, and more. Open Tues- Sun with live music on weekend nights.
Oddwood Brewing, 3108 Manor Rd, Austin
A kids play area with a little playhouse and some arcade games inside as well.
Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches, 3220 Manor Rd, Austin
A new kids play area with some turf and little mushrooms. It’s not really a playground, but a cute little play area. *This is also a taproom, not a brewery.*
Austin Breweries With Playgrounds
Family Business Beer Company, 19510 Hamilton Pool Rd, Dripping Springs
This is the most family-friendly brewery! They have an amazing playground on a beautiful beer garden. They’re also just down the road from Hamilton Pool!
Fitzhugh Brewing, 15435 Fitzhugh Rd, Dripping Springs, TX 78620
Fitzhugh has a lovely beer garden with an impressive playscape, tree covered tables, and even some lawn games like Connect 4. It’s just down the street from both Jester King and Beerburg Brewing, making it easy to brewery-hop (if that’s a thing).
12 Fox Beer Co, 4700 W Fitzhugh Rd, Dripping Springs
12 Fox is family-friendly to the MAX! Not only do they have a playground, but they have really fun kid events like Trunk-or-Treat, Easter egg hunts and visits from Santa!
Ghost Note Brewing, 23663 Ranch Road 12 Ghost Note Ln, Dripping Springs
Beautiful grounds, food truck, kid-friendly, live music, and a playground. What more could you ask for?
Austin Breweries With Playgrounds
Frontyard Brewing, 4514 Bob Wire Rd, Spicewood
There’s a big, sprawling open space to run around and play, and lots of kid-friendly events. Live music every weekend!
Vista Brewing, 13551 Ranch to Market Rd 150, Driftwood
We love how there are shaded table right next to this playground!
Infamous Brewing Company, 4602 Weletka Dr, Austin (playground gone for now- returning soon!)
Lake Travis Biergarten, 3519 B, Ranch Rd 620 N, Austin
