Weekend Watering Hole Update August 7-9

Well we have some positive updates this week. More of our local small businesses are able to have parts of their locations open for onsite consumption.  Please always check the social pages of each location before you head out, because if we've learned anything during these last 5 months anything can change at any moment. 

This past week we saw two local businesses close their doors for good; Austin Java and Sante Fe.  This is the reality many local businesses are currently fighting off.  We need to help support the breweries, wineries and distilleries that make Drinking Springs such an amazing destination.  Make it a priority to buy direct at least once a week.  Offer to pick up for friends and neighbors while there to help spread the love.  In short- get drinking Drinking Springs and if you feel up to it check out our new shirts in the online store.  Rep your DSTX pride!
