What makes the summer bearable? Taking a vacation. Getting away from it all. But there are some things you can’t quite escape from. Not completely. This is Texas, so no matter where you go, what you do—there’s always that hot as Hades summer heat!
So what’s the solution?
Beer of course. Really great beer.
That’s how you solve summer. Beer and vacations. Combine the two and you have one of the most beautiful words in the English language. Beercation. (Almost gives us tingles when we say it.)
You don’t have to be a tourist to take a vacation right here in Texas. Here are some of the best places in Texas to beat the summer heat, while you sip on some amazing craft beer, and experience some of the best the Lone Star State has to offer.
Enjoy your beercation! Send us a postcard.
