Taste local beer
There are several breweries in Salado and each one has an entirely different vibe. We visited two on our most recent trip and we loved both because they were both drastically different.
Our favorite was Barrow Brewing. Located on Salado Creek, there is a huge area to sit outside under shade or out in the open. They also have a lawn where people lay out blankets and bring lawn games. While we were visiting they had two food trucks that were serving BBQ and Pizza, perfect for a night out.
Another amazing spot to stop for a brew in Salado is Chupacabra Brewery. Chupacabra has over 60 local Texas beers as well as over 250 wines for you to choose from. You can also grab a bite to eat at the restaurant next door and they will bring it right over to your table when it is ready!
