If you’ve ever dreamed about cracking open a beer with the boys from Supernatural, this might be your chance!
Series star Jensen Ackles and his wife Danneel will be opening the doors to their brand new brewery this month. The couple has teamed up with Ed and Debby Graul (Danneel’s parents) and Gino Graul (Danneel’s brother) as business partners in their new brewery venture.
The brewery is called Family Business Beer Co. and is located in Dripping Springs, Texas. The name of the establishment should ring a bell with Supernatural fans and, according to Entertainment Weekly, that’s exactly what Ackles was going for. Ackles explained how they eventually came up with the extremely fitting name:
“The name was a simple placeholder (since we are a family) until we could come up with something catchy, but we realized that the name made sense on a few different levels — one being a nod to Supernatural as one of the early slogans for the show was ‘Saving people. Hunting things. The family business.’ — so we shrugged our shoulders and said, ‘Guess we have a name!’”
The idea to open a brewery first came to mind for Ackles about 5 years ago when he and his brother-in-law Gino starting making some homebrews for fun. Ackles said:
“The idea to start a small brewery began about 5 years about when my brother-in-law Gino and I thought we were making some pretty good backyard brews and wanted to take it to the next level,” Ackles says. “Little did we know that our casual chat about starting a brewery would lead us to where we are today as Family Business Beer Co. Needless to stay, we are very excited.”
Family Business Beer Co. will be more than just beer. The location will feature live music, outdoor games, a kids’ playground and more. In regards to spirits and libations, beer taps will be flowing but, if that’s not your thing, there will also be a selection of local and regional wines and non-alcoholic beverages to choose from.
Family Business Beer Co. will officially open its doors to the public on Wednesday, January 10th so, if you’re in the Dripping Springs area, stop on in for a pint or two! Check out the Family Business Beer Co. website for more information.
