Tap Takeover With Family Business Beer Company, A Beer Tasting Experience That Will Transport You To
Our “Tap Takeover” segment continues this Thursday (09/01/22) with Family Business Beer Company. Created by Jensen Ackles, the iconic “Supernatural,” and Amazon Prime Video show, "The Boys,” actor, his wife, American actress and model, Danneel Ackles, his brother-in-law, Gino Graul, and his parents-in-law, Ed and Debby Graul to “Bring people together over beer,” (Gino Graul, FBBC Owner/ General Manager).
Inspired by their family bond, and the paranormal show, “Supernatural,” Family Business Beer Company developed in 2005, came into existence by 2006, and finally opened its doors on January 10, 2018, outside of Dripping springs Texas to serve unique beers like “Haulin’ Oats,” “Two Headed Dog,” and “Gorgon’s Blood.”
Carrying a wide variety of fun seasonal and year around IPA's, Sour Ales, brown ales, barrel-aged brews, and rye lagers, F.B.B.C. is becoming a craft brewery staple in Texas. Drawing in a crowd of paranormal fanatics, families, and beer enthusiasts, F.B.B.C. knows that good beer is key to bringing “people from all walks of life together and re-establishing a sense of community,” (Gino Graul, FBBC Owner/ General Manager). Aside from their wide variety, F.B.B.C.’s beer is simply...amazing. We always love featuring “Golden Age”, a crisp, lively, and earthy German Pilsner Beer that won a silver medal during the Great American Beer Festival of 2019.
Whether you are a “Supernatural” fanatic or a craft beer lover you do not want to miss out on this week's “Tap Takeover” segment with Family Business Beer Company. Join us Thursday from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm for a fun night of connection, games, and a beer-tasting experience that will transport you to another realm of flavor!
