Brewery and Events Center Coming to Liberty Hill/Bertram Area

Lazy Tree Ranch to host Hops and Grapes Brewpub with beer, food and wine.

Liberty Hill, TX, USA — Hill Country has a new brewery and events center opening in the near future. Lazy Tree Ranch (, located off CR 264/206 near the Best of the West Gun Range will be opening this summer for weekends and events. The 10.6 acre property has more than 100,000 square feet of beautiful lawn with hundred year old live oak trees. Hops and Grapes Brewpub will be offering its own brews as well as many craft beers and moderately priced wines for consumption on or off site.

The plan is to install a bark park, play area and disc golf course so families and even their pet can come out to the country for a day and enjoy great BBQ, beer and wine. There is an existing pavilion and plenty of seating under the canopy of trees.

“We’re looking into the future and seeing a great place for family events and the occasional country music act performing,” noted Carl Braun Managing Partner of Lazy Tree Ranch. “Hops and Grapes when finished will be a real asset to the area with excellent food and spirits.” He added.

Austin is the Live Music Capital of the US and Lazy Tree Plans on leveraging that reputation with live events.

The ranch is easily accessible from HWY 29 and only 1.4 miles off the main road along the Burnet County line.

The company just started a Regulation Crowdfunding campaign on and is seeking $500K in funding for the new buildings and equipment. Anyone can participate.
