Austin Welcomes One of the City's Largest New Breweries

Austin is set to welcome one of the city's largest new breweries with the addition of the Flemish Fox Brewery and Craftworks, a new brewery set to open in North Austin in early 2017. Flemish Fox is the brainchild of Christine Celis, the daughter of Pierre Celis, the Dutch brewer credited with sparking the city's craft beer scene. Particularly known for his specialty Belgian-style witbier, Celis' brewery was unfortunately bought out by the Miller Brewing Company and would eventually shutter, thereby ending the family name. 

Looking to revive the long family legacy of brewing, Christine Celis is partnering with her daughter Daytona, who has also recently been working as a brewery at the local Uncle Billy's brewery. When Flemish Fox opens, it is set to be one of Austin's largest breweries with an extensive, four building warehouse that will house a production and distribution facility, a gift shop, beer garden and 3,800 square-foot museum that will host original brewing equipment from the family's Celis Brewery. Read More

Austin welcomed its first True Food Kitchen location, the health conscious restaurant created by acclaimed health expert Dr. Andrew Weil and restaurateur Sam Fox. Opening in an old power plant in the Seaholm District, True Food Kitchen looks to offer diners a new take on healthy dining. Rather than offering traditional tofu-based, or an entirely vegetable driven menu, the restaurant focuses on anti-inflammatory ingredients known for their ability to help prevent the onset of cancer and Alzheimer's.

The Austin location is the 12th U.S. restaurant that Weil and Fox have opened together, and the duo have plans to open seven more locations in the near future. Read More
