Taking kids to a brewery can be quite a controversial topic.
There are people who think the presence of kids around while adults enjoy a beer it’s completely fine and nothing much changes, and there are others who may think children’s presence at a brewery is kind of a bummer.
If you make it all the way to this post, it means you’re fine with the idea of having your kids with you and are looking for options of the best kid-friendly breweries around Austin.
Those who are not very enthusiastic about kids in these places would prefer that children are busy playing and entertained instead of running around the adults.
For any of both scenarios, take a look at these great options for kid-friendly breweries where both kids and adults will have a great time!
