Wine, Beer & Spirits
One of the first things people notice when visiting charming Bastrop is its pioneering attitude and appreciation for high-quality food and drinks. While Bastrop maintains its quintessential small Texas charm, it serves as a Texas-sized hub for artisanal goods. Its selection of wine, beer, and spirits is no exception. With Bastrop’s incredible location and its convenient size, it’s easy to plan a day or afternoon just exploring the beverages of Bastrop!
Start your round of refreshments with a simple stroll to Bastrop’s very first winery, the Colorado River Winery. Conveniently located near the banks of the Colorado in the heart of downtown Bastrop, Colorado River Winery offers a rotating collection of small batch wines in their Tuscan-style tasting room. Kick back your feet while you sip and swirl delicious Texas wines. You will feel right at ease in their warm and inviting historic building, charming with its exposed brick walls and historic accents. If you love what you taste you can purchase bottles or even join their special wine club!
After finishing your final tasting, saunter down the street to find Copper Shot Distillery, a small family-owned shop whipping up clever original liquors. Copper Shot Distillery handcrafts all of their American distilled spirits on-site and in small batches. Visitors can lounge on the patio while they taste the quality of flavors in each delicious batch of liquor. Sip from an assortment of creatively flavored moonshines (like apple pie or watermelon), smooth bourbons, or indulge in a little handmade vodka. Whatever your choice, Copper Shot Distillery does not disappoint.
Of course, if you’re still thirsty, there’s more. If you want margaritas and Mexican food, look no further than Anita's or Casa Chapala. Want a cold draft beer? Camp out on the patio at Iron Bridge Brew House, overlooking the Colorado. Whatever your thirst, Bastrop has the beverage to quench it.
