AUSTIN (KXAN) — As this summer’s heat wave continues to move up the record books, many people in Austin are looking to cool off with a beer but stay socially distant and safe while doing so. In recent weeks, relaxed rules from the TABC have allowed many breweries to reopen.

Here’s a look at how they’re doing so, whether they are offering indoor or outdoor seating and if you need a reservation. This list is not yet comprehensive, but it came about as I myself struggled to find a centralized location for this information.

I have looked at each of these brewery’s websites and social media pages and called many of them. If you see an Austin-area brewery that’s missing from the list or has outdated information, please email reportit@kxan.com.
