About Us

This brewery is the brainchild of long-time associates and friends who have mastered a niche: they conceive and run some of Austin’s best neighborhood gathering spaces. The co-owners started six of your favorite neighborhood bars/restaurants – MugShots, The Hideout Pub, Bender Bar and Grill, Pour House Pub, Violet Crown Social Club and Pour House Pints and Pies and now your new favorite brewery, Hitmaker Brewing.

The four guys that bring you this new experience all have more than 25 years in the bar/ restaurant industry. Their familiarity with working behind the bar is reflected in their craft beers from the taste to the packaging. Passionately unpretentious, the founders have an appreciation for the transformative nature of brewing that combines the art and science of brewing. The result is simply great beer that brings people together because everyone could stand to have a little more joy in their life.
