Experts and those who have been through a total solar eclipse say it is like nothing you've ever experienced. Suddenly, in the middle of the day, a shadow races toward you at 1,500 miles an hour, and the day is gone. Planets, stars, and the corona are visible as the temperature drops and everyone around is awestruck. You'll never forget it!

The total solar eclipse will be a one-in-a-lifetime event and Driftwood will experience the event beginning at approximately 12:16pm. The full eclipse begins at 1:34pm and Dripping Springs will be in total darkness for 3 minutes, when the moon’s disk completely blocks the sun.

Eclipse weekend lineup at the Vista Brewing Ranch with four days of live music, limited release Eclipse beer, fresh food specials and spring Hill Country vibes.
