10 Austin Breweries With Playgrounds

One of our favorite things to do on the weekends is to go out to a brewery, let the kids run around and just hang out with friends. There are so many breweries in the greater Austin area that have playground so we can always find a fun place for everyone when the weather is nice! Some of our best days have been spent relaxing at breweries on beautiful days.

10 Breweries with playgrounds in Austin area

Here are 10 Austin area breweries to find playgrounds (tons in Dripping Springs!). Find the closest one to you with this map, which also has restaurants with playgrounds!

1. Fitzhugh Brewing

15435 Fitzhugh Road
Dripping Springs, TX 78620

Fitzhugh Brewing

This is one of the cutest playscapes out there. It’s white wood to match the main building, and it’s a good size for both little and big kids. I love the setup of this brewery with lots of tables all around the table, so you can always find a spot to sit and sip and supervise your kids.

2. Frontyard Brewing/5 Soul Wine Co.

4514 Bob Wire Road
Spicewood, TX 78669

5Soul and Frontyard Brewing

These two drinkeries share a spacious outdoor area with a great hill country view. There’s long firepits, pickle ball courts, and cornhole. There’s also a big space with a seesaw, a hill with a moveable slide and a couple disc golf holes.

3. Jester King

13187 Fitzhugh Rd.
Austin, TX 78736

Jester King

Jester King has evolved a ton in the past 10 years. It was family-friendly before because it had plenty of space for kids to just run around, but now it has even more space to run and some kid-centric areas.

It has a playground that opened in late 2021 and a herd of goats the kids can visit (they’ve even let our kids feed them when we timed it just right).

4. Meanwhile Brewing Co.

3901 Promontory Point Dr.
Austin, Texas 78744

Meanwhile Brewing

This is our favorite brewery. We discovered this place on our way home from McKinney Falls State Park and it was love at first sight.

There’s plenty of room inside and outside, a turf area, and lots of shade over an awesome natural-style treehouse, slide and balance beam. The food trucks are delicious, there’s beer, cocktails and coffee options, and we just like the vibes.

5. Austin Beerworks

3001 Industrial Ter.
Austin, Tx 78758

Austin Beerworks

A lot of the breweries with playgrounds are outside of the city or out toward the airport. but Austin Beerworks is a reliable, fun place in North Austin. It doesn’t have a traditional playground, but it has a small play area with turf-covered hills and tunnels, as well as chalk and hula hoops.

6. Family Business Beer Co.

19510 Hamilton Pool Rd.
Dripping Springs, TX 78620

Family Business Beer Co.

I LOVE Family Business. It’s out a bit far west for us to visit all the time, but we always have the best days there, days I look back on warmly. Lots of trees, lots of tables, and a big fenced-in playground. No doubt your kids will end up carrying gravel up and dropping it down the slides.

You can get pizza, drink beer, listen to live music, and let the kids run wild.

7. Vista Brewing

13551 FM 150 W
Driftwood, TX 78619

Vista Brewing

This is a cute brewery out in Driftwood that we visited on our way home from Wimberley. There are plenty of tables closer to the buildings, but you have to walk just a bit to find the playground.

It’s kind of like a little treehouse with a couple slides. Kids of all size can run around in it or under it.

8. 12 Fox Beer Co.

4700 W Fitzhugh Rd.
Dripping Springs, TX 78620

12 Fox

This playground is not for little kids, but big kids can have a lot of fun on it. It doesn’t seem to be professionally built, so the ladders are really hard to get up (I had a hard time with it even!) and the rope bridge is kind of steep.

There are some little play things on the ground for toddlers and preschoolers though. A little slide and some tires to climb on and room to run around.

9. The Good Lot

2500 W New Hope Dr.
Cedar Park, TX 78613

The Good Lot

The Good Lot has a big grassy area with lots of shade trees where kids love to run around and some great wooden climbing structures. Even the big one is easy enough for little kids to climb — my then-2-year-old could get to the top. It’s definitely looks scarier to parents than kids.

They don’t brew their own beer at The Good Lot, but they have lots of local beer on tap. And they have a great food truck setup.

10. Ghost Note Brewing

23663 Ranch Road 12 @ Ghost Note Lane
Dripping Springs, TX 78620

Ghost Note Brewing

If you like the playgrounds at Meanwhile and Jester King, check out Ghost Note Brewing. The same person made all three playgrounds. It has a treehouse with slide, balance beams and a rope net for climbing.

It’s just a little bit farther out in Dripping Springs than the row of breweries on Fitzhugh, but it has lots of open space and such a relaxed vibe.
