Take a Brewery Tour Through Boerne

2 Women with Beer outside Free Roam Brewing Co

Boerne and the surrounding area have become well-known for award-winning craft breweries. So, how does one go about experiencing all of them? Let’s talk tastings. If you’re celebrating a milestone event or special occasion such as a birthday, bachelor party, or retirement, you can do so in style as your group experiences an exceptional brewery tour. Most can be accessed on foot, so booking a shuttle isn't necessary unless you want to explore further into the hills. If so, there are a handful of options available. If caravanning in a group with designated drivers fits your plan, it's also an amazing way to enjoy the best beer the Boerne area has to offer. No matter your method of transportation, below are some helpful tips and locations to ensure you and your crew have a one-of-a-kind experience!

Beer Fit for a... Zythophile?

For the self-proclaimed zythophile (lover of beer), a day trip through Boerne’s renowned breweries and craft beer venues is a bucket list item worth experiencing at least once (or twice, maybe even three times!) With so many great places to choose from, we’ve compiled a list with all the details to make planning your tasting tour that much smoother.

Dodging Duck Flight A starting point, a visit to The Dodging Duck Brewhaus & Restaurant is highly recommended. After 21 years of operation, this restaurant and brewery combined will treat your group to cozy casual dining options indoors as well as outdoors, where you can see the ducks on Cibolo Creek (hence the name!). 

Cibolo Creek Brewing Co FlightMaking your way along the Hill Country Mile, another great place to visit is Cibolo Creek Brewing Co. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the beer is always on point, and the food is farm-sourced! Then perhaps make your way across the street to Hamby’s, which is their sister location, serving up smash burgers and hand-dipped corndogs with their unique lighter brews. Their family-friendly 1950s-esque environment welcomes you to relax outdoors on their patio or indoors playing classic arcade games.

Free Roam Brewing Co. FlightA little further down the street is Free Roam Brewing Company. They have a passion for community, which shines through in their equal passion for the making of quality craft beer. A tasting stop here will have your group sampling premium-quality lagers and ales while you reflect on what the rest of your tasting day has to hold.

Tusculum Brewing Co. FlightNext stop is Tusculum Brewing Co. where craft beer, great food, family, and fun all meet! With an indoor taproom, a brewhouse taproom, and a spacious, pet-friendly, covered biergarten, space is not an issue. Likewise for choice! Your tasting trip group will feel right at home in this family-owned and operated Boerne business dedicated to doing beer right.

28 Songs Brewhouse Beer and FoodJust off the Hill Country Mile, 28 Songs Brewhouse + Kitchen is a great addition to your beer-tasting tour across Boerne. This independent craft brewery and eatery offers a beer-centric experience in a casual setting where you’re invited to come for the brews and great food and stay for the fun!

Kinematic Brewing Co PourA little further out, towards Comfort, you will find Kinematic Brewing Co. This nano-sized brewery is located in a beautiful hill country setting and provides an opportunity to slow down, enjoy the view, and sip on a selection of small-batch brews.

PRO TIP: Take a moment to plan ahead and scout each location’s social media for their live music schedule and any food trucks that may be on site for your tour date.

Taking a brewery tour throughout Boerne is always a great idea! No matter the occasion, celebrating in this fashion lets your group try out new brews risk-free in wonderfully unique atmospheres. Explore amazing local flavors on a tour that goes beyond simple door-to-door transportation; learn essential brewing knowledge, unique backstories, and fun facts that will open your mind and get you into the venues where a truly authentic Boerne brewery tour experience starts.
