Family Business Beer Company, the brewery in Dripping Springs, Texas which is owned by Jensen and Danneel Ackles, will be opening a second location in Austin! The brewery is managed by Danneel’s brother, Gino Graul, who is a craft beer enthusiast.

We previously visited Family Business Beer Company, and had an interview with Gino, which you can read here.

The second location will be part of the St. Elmo’s Public Market, a new 40,000-square-foot market which will be the city’s first true artisan food retail marketplace, a one-of-a-kind, highly curated destination for local foods, beverages, and restaurants. It’s set to open in fall 2019.

Nate Seale, previously known for his signature recipes as brewmaster for (512) Brewing Company, serves as head brewer. Seale will also oversee the beer production at this second location, which was a natural progression for the beer brand given the immense success it has experienced since opening its Dripping Springs brewery ten months ago. Family Business Beer Co. at St. Elmo will serve as the brewpub for the public market.

“We are looking forward to being surrounded by so many other talented tenants and contributing to the overall synergy of the development. Our focus in the market will be small batch limited release beers, one-offs of our existing flagships, and we’ll be working on an exciting barrel program,” said Graul.

These two new additions to St. Elmo Public Market join previously announced tenants Mignette, a new bakery/modern diner concept by Michael Fojtasek; a butcher shop and local produce store from Ben Runkle and Bryan Butler of Salt & Time; and a new retail location for Texas Hill Country Olive Oil Company.
