HISTORY

Our building was built in the 1940s and served as a Red and White Grocery Store for many years. 

The space we occupy eventually became a dive bar known as the Mole Hole. Old school Blanco folks still remember it this way.

In 1996, a team of craft beer pioneers took over the space and started a little brewery called Real Ale. They stayed there, growing over time, till 2007 when they moved to their new facility on the north edge of town. Today they are known and loved across the country, producing upwards of 60,000 barrels a year of their award-winning beers, plus whiskey and hard seltzers. And it all started right here… in the Blanco Underground.
