    Brewster’s Pizza is 40 miles southwest of Austin and 60 miles northeast of San Antonio.

    Brewster’s Pizza, in Wimberley, is 40 miles southwest of Austin and 60 miles northeast of San Antonio, but it's definitely Worth the Drive.

    Owned by a former NFL player, his wife and their 13 kids, all pies at Brewster's are organic and they even offer a gluten-free crust. Specialties include typical toppings but it’s the freshness and quality of ingredients that sets Brewster’s apart from larger pizza delivery places.

    Got a sweet tooth, the S’mores pizza and Cinnamon Bun pie are a couple of options for dessert.

    Thirsty? All-natural beers are brewed on-site and the tasty unpasteurized and unfiltered suds compliment any savory slice of pie.

    Here’s a breakdown of Brewster’s most popular brews

    Hefeweizen - Wheat beer with organic coriander seed, orange and lemon zest.

    Peggy's Cream Ale - An American Lager recipe brewed with Ale yeast and Ale temperatures for a wager that was won by this smooth, light libation.
