The warm, friendly atmosphere made and delicious food and beer (love the Rainbow Road IPA) made up for the foggy, drizzly weather!

The staff was enforcing there COVID regulations very aggressively and without being tactful. They were visibly frustrated by the task.

Family Business is a great spot to hang out and have a drink or two, especially during COVID since they have a large outdoor area with lots of trees. The staff is so nice, and the pizza is great too. It’s become a favorite of ours!

This was my first time going. I was a little nervous due to COVID, but they do their part to make it where we can still go out and stay safe. With tables spread out, it is easy to have good conversations over a cold beer and warm pizza. All of the staff was super nice and explained everything you need to do to get your pizza and beer. I went earlier in the day so it was pretty quiet, but when it got busier, the noise level was still down due to the space between tables. The beer was great and the pizza was delicious. All around great experience from the time I arrived until the time I left.

Family Business Beer Company was recommended to us by a friend and our time there did not disappoint. The brewery has the best COVID procedures I've experienced. It is clear that Family Business cares about their customers, cares about staying open, and cares about creating an enjoyable experience despite a pandemic. Beer was great and enticed us to buy some to-go. Paired with an amazing pizza, we were in heaven. So it's cold, and you sit outdoors, but with jackets we enjoyed the many oak trees in the wooded location. Our experience at Family Business Beer Company was well worth the drive off the beaten path.

We were passing through the Austin area and stopped. The Tap Room Manager (?) was amazing, she was knowledgeable and gave us a brief overview of the area. We enjoyed our time there. We got a growler of Haulin’ Oats for our hotel!

Was there early evening before my flight home the next day and although it was freezing outside, we had so much fun. The beer was very good and this is coming from someone who hates beer and won’t drink it if it’s gross. I especially loved the Spree which is almost cider-like probably why I loved it. I also really loved The Grackle which was a very heavy stout that had coffee.....hmmmm coffee.... All in all, loved it and can’t wait to be back when it’s not freezing in Texas.

Super solid! Awesome beer, awesome food, awesome atmosphere. Only thing that was kind of annoying is that pizza took almost an hour to be ready - would be great if they could update estimated wait time when you're ordering so you know you're in for a long haul.

Family business is handling COVID amazingly well! I was very impressed at their process. Digital paying, masks on at all time except when you are at your tables, you need to make reservations to go and the check process was smooth as well. I definitely felt safe during these weird times!

My wife and I stopped by after a day in the Hill Country. We don't go out often because of COVID concerns. We were extremely pleased with all of the COVID precautions taken at Family Business BeerCo. Completely contactless ordering and self-pickup of freshly made pizza - and of course a wide range of tasty beers produced on site. The picnic grove was shaded and spacious, with lots of room to remain socially distant. Bathrooms were immaculate. And, I should point out, we will go back to FBBC during and after the COVID days are behind us.

Of course they have great craft beer but I have to say since we went for lunch, that the “Texan” pizza was awesome and what I’ll remember from this trip! Can’t wait to get back down that way and have another! Super clean, great location, and super friendly staff.

I showed up to dine in. Was told i can only order via an app and pay for myself. I had to get my own drinks and my own food - zero interaction with the staff. Just because of COVID, does not mean they cannot have servers.. Was not impressed.

Stopped in for a pint after hiking last Sunday. Stayed for pizza and bought a case to go. Family Business is doing a great job! Online reservations and ordering and they were meticulous in cleaning tables between customers. Beautiful spot under the oaks and a nice drive out on Hamilton Pool Rd.

We had a great time. We had a hard time getting our 2 and 4 year old daughters to understand that they could not play on the playground or visit the other kids. We hope to make the trip back to Dripping Springs soon. The beer was great and the atmosphere could not be beat!

Each time I visit FBB from DFW, I am very happy and satisfied. This time (November 8th) was for a mother and daughter trip celebrating her 21st Birthday. It was perfect: the food, beer and the weather. Thank you for topping off a perfect weekend,FBB!!! See you next trip!
