Even before a mean Texas summer reaches its peak, we’re leaving permanent pit stains in our T-shirts and running up our electricity bills to keep that AC going. So what do we do if we want to go out?

The tasting rooms of Austin’s breweries, distilleries and wineries offer an easy answer. Although many of these booze producers have beautiful outdoor areas, whether patios or full-on beer gardens, all of them are guaranteed to have a tasting room where visitors can sit and try their products. These are among the best of those places.
