Let’s set the scene, shall we…

You’ve had a day full of exploring all that San Marcos has to offer, be it hiking, a sporting event, shopping, or visiting an attraction or two. You and your friend(s)/family/beloved are looking for the perfect ending to a wonderful day. We suggest celebrating and relaxing with some of San Marcos’ finest brews. With four breweries and brewpubs to choose from, you’re sure to find one that hits the spot!


Family Time – Roughhouse Brewing

Tucked away off of Ranch Road 12, Roughhouse Brewing has plenty of outdoor space for the kids to enjoy themselves while the adults relax with a cold one. Roughhouse Brewing specializes in farmhouse-style beer and has some very tasty snacks and sandwiches.


Furry Friends – Middleton Brewing

Four legs or two, everyone feels right at home at Middleton Brewing! We suggest getting a glass of anything that strikes your fancy and then head to the rooftop for beautiful Hill Country views. The laid-back atmosphere at Middleton really hits the spot after a long day exploring.


Alumni Visit – Sean Patrick’s Irish Pub & Grub

Sean Patrick’s is the place to go when old friends hit the town once again. The rotating off-site brewed selection hits the spot after the big game. Play some pool, watch a game on the TVs and relive the glory days on the Square.


First Timers – AquaBrew

AquaBrew is a great introduction to the San Marcos craft beer and food scene. Located right off the Downtown Square, you’re in the perfect spot to enjoy the San Marcos life. Ralph the Swimming Pig (Swine Dive IPA) and mermaids (San Marcos Blonde) are two of the San Marcos icons you’ll find incorporated into the beer and labeling at AquaBrew. Buy a pack of Skyscraper Mosaic IPA to take home with you and stack the cans to see something fun unfold.
