Austin360.com reports that some star power will be behind a new brewery in Texas:
Jensen Ackles, one of the two main stars of the CW show “Supernatural,” has a new job title to claim: that of co-owner of a brewery just outside of Austin, on 15 scenic, tree-lined acres in the Texas Hill Country.
Family Business Beer Co., which he owns with wife Danneel, brother-in-law Gino Graul and in-laws Ed and Debby Graul, is opening Jan. 10 at 19510 Hamilton Pool Rd. with a handful of beers on tap, a playground for kids and a Southern-style food truck owned by “Duck Dynasty” stars Jep and Jessica Robertson.
The brewery has been a few years in the making for Ackles and Gino, who had been homebrewing and — like so many other hobbyists who become professional brewers and brewery owners — decided they wanted to open a homey place where beer lovers could spend an afternoon. The vision for Family Business Beer Co. came together when they secured the property five miles from Hamilton Pool Preserve in Dripping Springs
