Concert and events center featuring a craft brewpub and restaurant

Lazy Tree Ranch, home of Hops and Grapes Brewpub, is the first destination location of itu2019s kind for forty miles in any direction and one of only two destination brewpubs of this size in the greater Austin Area. We are building a dog park, play area, disc golf course, soccer field, pitch and putt and beach volleyball court. We want to be the go to place for weekend family gatherings, reunions, and even weddings. A place where the family can get excellent beer and wine and terrific BBQ.

  • Raised over $125,000 already through friends and family for Lazy Tree Ranch. Funds were used to purchase the property and begin development of the site for the brewpub and concert/events center.
  • Co-Founder Carl Braun took his last company from zero to $10 million in annual sales from a single $125K angel investment. That investor subsequently earned a 1700% return when the company sold and reinvested in another Braun company.
  • Co-founders Braun and Mike De Santis have many years experience in facility management, construction and large events.
  • Purchased the 10.6 acre facility in October. Renovation of property includes removal of old pole barns and construction of a new events center and brewpub on the property.

Austin is now the eighth largest craft beer city in the United States and the trend only continues to grow in Central Texas. At Lazy Tree Ranch, we plan to ride that wave and combine it with authentic Texas BBQ, wine, and natural, scenic hills. We just bought our 10.6 acre facility last October and have already started construction. Using our decades of business and construction management experience, our vision is to build a new hot destination for locals and visitors alike.
