Known for their English-style ales, Acopon Brewing Company is located off Dripping Springs’ historic Mercer Street and serves brews to locals and tourists alike. Acopon Brewing opened this past September and has been serving some tasty, balanced ales. Here are our current favorites, perfect for chillier days:

Pesta Oatmeal Stout

There’s nothing like a dark stout to set the tone for a cool autumn night. The Pesta Oatmeal Stout sits at 4.4% ABV and a 31 IBU. The remarkably dark brew has been a recent favorite among many stout drinkers and you can easily drive down the street from our master-planned community to enjoy the Pesta Oatmeal Stout.

Pandemic English Porter

Don’t just stop with the oatmeal stout, go ahead and try the next beer on our list – the Pandemic English Porter. Taking on an even darker and fuller body than the Pesta, the Pandemic ranks in at a 4.6% ABV and 36 IBU.

211 W. Mercer St., Dripping Springs. 3 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. acoponbrewing.com

Recently opened this past July in Dripping Springs, Suds Monkey Brewing Company is a brewpub known distinctly for their unique beers that satisfy every palette. While the family plays games, sit back and sip on our top Suds Monkey brews:

Funky Monkey IPA

Taking a brief departure from the dark beers to venture over to another one of our favorite Dripping Springs breweries, Suds Monkey Brewing Company. Their Funky Monkey IPA is ideal for those whose taste buds aren’t keen on darker beers. There’s no rule saying that you must stick with dark, heavier beers when the temperatures drop, and this IPA certainly proves that point. Ranking in at a 7.9% ABV and a 54 IBU, the Funky Monkey IPA is a cold brew you won’t want to pass up!

Punk Monkey Porter

Being Suds Monkey Brewing Company’s first take into the world of darker beers, the Punk Monkey Porter has a slight bitterness upfront, only to be filled with delightful chocolate notes that quickly transition to nice roasted caramel flavors that leave you wanting more. At only 5% ABV, you’ll be able to safely enjoy a few more of the Punk Monkey Porters than you will the Funky Monkey IPAs.

1032 Canyon Bend Drive, Dripping Springs. 3 to 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday, noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. sudsmonkeybrew.com
