4. Independence Brewing Co.
Head to one of Austin's oldest craft breweries for a Friday afternoon sampling in their warehouse tasting room. There, you'll enjoy the current seasonal awesomeness, White Rabbit, a Belgian-style white ale. Year-round faves include Stash IPA and Austin Amber. If you find yourself in the capital city any other time of year, check out their First Saturday events with live music and local food, plus plenty of beer, of course.
