Acopon Brewing is a small local brewery focused on British styles of beer. Located in the historic heart of Dripping Springs on Mercer Street.
Acopon is following an old world model, where each little town in Germany or England had their own local brewery, and that’s the only place to get that beer. In that spirit, the taproom on Mercer is a comfortable place to hang out and enjoy a pint or two with friends old and new.
The brewery has an air conditioned tap room and a front patio to enjoy when the weather is nice.They welcome dogs (on a leash), and well-behaved children. Enjoy a heavenly smash burger from Hangry's, a now permanent food truck.
Regarding the beer, founders Dave Niemeyer and John McIntosh wanted to showcase British styles because they are easy to approach for the new beer drinker, but have plenty of appeal to the craft beer enthusiast. Staying true to style, they offer their English beers on cask, served from a traditional hand pump. While they may focus on British beer, that doesn’t keep them from brewing many other styles as well. Brewer Dave Niemeyer also brews a variety of styles including American IPAs, Pale Ales, German Lagers and seasonal beers like Imperial Stouts or German Wheat beer. There are always 10-12 beers on tap, and flights are available if you want to sample a few.
By offering a range of styles anyone who comes in can find a favorite. For the non beer drinker the tap room also serves cider, wine and soft drinks. Acopon is Open Every Day.
