Family Business is a great way to spend an afternoon. Their COVID protocols are excellent and take mask wearing when away from your table very seriously.

Very cool outdoor experience. Order from an app and pickup from the bar. Same goes for food. Service was good. Pizza was a little on the thin side and crunchy but still good.

This was such a fun afternoon, and felt really safe amid the pandemic. Tables were arranged quite spaciously, and under the trees. Orders were done via a mobile app and picked up when ready. Both the beer and the pizza were delicious. We will be back!

It was very peaceful. The shade of the trees blocked most of the sunlight which was nice. And very easy to socially distance. Tables were pretty far away from each other and every one had to use a mask when stepping away from their table, which made me feel safe. Overall, peaceful experience. Oh and pizza was delicious!

My wife and I love this brewery. This was our second visit coming down from Dallas and it was just as good as our first time almost a year ago. Sitting outside, enjoying the nice weather and the tables are spread out enough that you feel like you aren't hearing everyone else's conversations. The order process on the phone was very simple and the paper menus they provided gave very easy to follow instructions to place beer, food, and merch orders. The beer was excellent and you could tell that it was fresh. One of the best additions is the pizza food truck on site. Our pizza was hot, crispy, and delicious. I also want to give a shout out to one of the staff, Laura, who was doing a great job keeping the tables sanitized after each guest and was very pleasant and helpful when we asked her a few quick questions. My wife and I initially came to this brewery because of it's owner, Jensen Ackles, but the great staff and environment will keep us coming back for years.

They took the safety measures seriously while still keeping a nice atmosphere, and the mobile ordering system worked well. The beer flights were great and the pizza was terrific, though I think the crust needed more salt :) We'll be back for sure, most likely many times, in the future.

Great experience! Respectful of masks and social distancing. Beautiful scenery with so many trees. Got pizza and it was great as well as the beer. Plan to pick up the "Hamilton pale" beer from grocery store. Definitely want to go again soon. Been there before and food and beer was great then too. Kids and dog friendly. Highly recommend.

This is my FAVORITE place to go, the staff and the general manager are wonderful and amazing, always happy, always ready to help! I recommend the Cosmic Cowboy it's their flagship IPA and the Dunkel is really good too. They have PIZZA now!! what's better to go with pizza then BEER! I have become a beer snob because of this place because once you have beer straight from the tap it's over. Also they have white lights in the grove! very peaceful and beautiful at night.
Everyone needs to come and check out FBBC!!!!

I am not one to write reviews but my experience was so bad that I want to make sure that this restaurant is actually going to fix the issue as I’ve been told this has been an ongoing problem for them for about a year and a half.
Great restaurant/atmosphere, the managers are extremely rude. I had to deal with 3 of them before the owner came out, and all 3 were rude, the owner was amazing though, however I don’t think he went back to reprimand or discuss the situation with the employees. I had 4 other tables come up to me and tell me their bad experiences with the managers. I will not be recommending this to anyone as there’s so many breweries right in that area, that I would prefer to go somewhere that treats their costumers with respect.
On top of the rudeness, my boyfriend that was with me who is in the army, was given a lot of attitude for supplying them with his Military ID at the door and was told he needed another for of identification. I find that to be unacceptable for many reasons. There was a small argument in result of this when I told the tap manager that is if an acceptable form of ID and that she should not be giving a military so much attitude, well any customer actually.
Right as we walked in we had a horrible encounter with the tap manager and when we sat at our table (that was nowhere near where we requested) another manager came up to us and as I explained the issues we were having, cut me off and started defending his coworker and telling us what we were doing was wrong.
After a 10-15 min convo with these people the owner came over and I spoke with him directly about all the issues I was having. I assured him I would not be recommending them or be revisiting and I was only there for a family gathering but my experience was ruined right as we walked in due to the “Tap Manager”

It was awesome. Probably the safest “out” experience I’ve had and it didn’t take away from the atmosphere of the Brewery. Really well done. And as always the beer is excellent!!

This was our second weekend trip to Wimberley and our second visit to Family Business. The relaxed outdoor atmosphere and amazing staff was why we came back. The new pandemic policies were what allowed us to come back. Every change made was smart and made our evening out feel safe and comfortable. Looking forward to our next weekend vacation in the hill country. Also, that pizza was friggin delicious!

Beer, pizza, and salad. That's it, and it's all done really well. The outdoor seating space has great ambiance. They even have vegan cheese for the pizza, if that's your kind of thing!

Masks are required, hand sanitizer is available, bathrooms were clean and had plenty of soap, and tables are covered so they can be sanitized between groups. This is definitely the most comfortable I've felt at any public space in months. Even the hypochondriac in my party agreed that we can return.

The staff were all super friendly, as well. I'm excited to go back soon!

The pizza was amazing, I’m not a huge fan of thin crust but it was great. When we got there, we were told there was a lot of orders so it’s backed up it may take longer to get food. We placed our order, and it was ready within 10 minutes. Can’t wait to go back, it’s such a great atmosphere, great food.

First of all, everything felt very safe. The tables were clean and sanitized, and each table seemed well-shaded. Tables were also well distanced, with at least 20 feet between the two closest and generally much more diatance. The online ordering and no-contact pickup was very easy.
Beers, as always were delicious, with a variety of styles for different palates. A bigger surprise was the pizza, which was amazing. A great cross between a NY-style and a wood-fired.

I really enjoyed my time at Family Business. This was my first time ever going and I was a little nervous of what to expect because of COVID. The seats are all spread out (with plenty of tree coverage), the tables have plastic cloths on them presumably so the staff can clean them more effectively, the ordering process is done from your phone, and the staff is very diligent with the mask while not at your table rule.

I really respected how they are handling COVID19.

If you're a meat eater, I recommend adding brisket to your pizza- delicious! Drinks are reasonably priced. Enjoyed the overall atmosphere. They definitely enforced wearing masks on the property, which I really appreciated.
