Real Ale Brewing Company

tastemaker nominee

This Blanco-based brewery, one of Texas' first craft beer operations, has been in operation for over two decades. Still family-owned, Real Ale produces over 60,000 barrels annually in a wide variety of styles, including 11 signature beers like Fireman’s #4, Hans’ Pils, and Lost Gold IPA, in addition to seasonal releases such as the thirst-quenching Gose and award-winning experimental ales in the Mysterium Verum line-up.

In early 2017, Real Ale launched a "grain-to-glass" liquor line called Real Spirits Distilling.
