Sip & Savor
Austin Cider Limits
How many Sunday Fundays have had you bouncing from place to place and then having to call around like Sherlock Holmes to find your credit card the next day? Just off 290 past the "Y," we found a road that's paved with good intentions by way of must-hit spots a hop, skip and a designated driver ride away from one another. Saddle up and find out why this street is three times the charm...
Argus Cidery (pictured) Last summer you were mad for Skinny Girl margaritas. This year it's the Lady Goldsmith, just one of the fizzy sips brewed from North Texas-grown apples. Take a look inside the open-air building during Saturday tastings to find a vintage record player and long wooden picnic tables to pair with your Easy Tiger baguette with house honey butter.
Jester King After you've conquered the cider, tap that souvenir glass at this farmhouse brewery. Filled to the brim primarily with beer that's USDA certified organic, soak up a public tasting most Saturdays from 1 - 4 p.m. for a $10 fee.
Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza Round out your Hill Country epicurean experience with an artisan pizza at the rustic respite, located within Jester King. From the truffle oil-infused Sparky to the EVOO laden Penelope, these pies, named for members of the on-site herd, aim to please your palate. Open limited hours on Saturdays and Sundays.
Make a reservation for Argus' featured weekly picnic menus, based on the cidery crew's favorite cookbooks, like NYC's Momofuku and Momofuku Milk Bar May 18th. (Click on "Visit.")
