Here’s some of our favorite spots in Fredericksburg:

Fat Ass Winery and Ranch

It all started several years ago when we got married and found that perfect Texas hill country ranch. Those three square meals a day sure were good. It wasn’t long before we noticed our britches were fitting tighter. Even our ol’ranch dog was gaining weight and having a heck of a time jumping into the back of the pickup. One day when we were out feeding horses, we noticed our donkey Jackson, was as big as some of the horses! That’s when we looked at each other and decided that we lived on the Fat Ass Ranch.

Barron’s Creek Vineyards

Our philosophy at Baron’s Creek is to bring you small lots of very fine wine from the best vineyards. We source our grapes from specialty growers throughout Texas, Washington, California and Spain. Whenever possible, we like to ferment as close to the vineyards as possible.

We partner with different vintners who ferment according to protocols set up by our winemaker, Russell Smith. This ensures consistent quality for all of our wines.

Fredericksburg Brewing Company

We began our operation in 1994, within months of the passage of legislation allowing brewpub operation in the great state of Texas. We found a public eagerly awaiting the enjoyment of our cold, freshly brewed beers. Long before the craft beer craze we were cranking out delicious award winning brews. As the oldest operating brewpub in the state, you could call us the “granddaddy” of brewpubs in Texas. We are located on Main Street Fredericksburg, Texas. In our fair little town, sidewalk consumption is allowed; you can take our cold craft brews on a sidewalk stroll down Main, fill a growler to take home or sit down with us and enjoy a brew paired with lunch or dinner… whatever suits your fancy. Our Brewpub serves German fare, pizza, burgers, salads and everything in between.   The Brewery sits in a restored 1890s era building. In addition to its main room, the brewery has a large, air-conditioned biergarten. The second floor of the building provides “Bed & Brew” guest rooms, 12 rooms (one on ground level), each decorated in a different theme. We hope you’ll join us soon. 


William Chris Vineyards

What began as an acquaintance as winemakers in the Hill Country became a collaboration between Bill and Chris, focusing on a shared winemaking philosophy. As the word ‘winegrowers’ implies, Bill and Chris agree that great wines are not made but grown. They also believe that wine should be inspired by the pleasure that is shared with an extended community of friends and family. The creation of each new vintage depends greatly upon these two priorities. Today, Bill and Chris continue to reach for a level of quality that represents the very best of Texas in each new vintage. It is with confidence in their process and pride in their families, community, and this special place, that they inscribe each bottle of William Chris with this greeting: we are pleased to share a piece of our world.
