It was April 2005 when planters began the painstaking task of rooting 7,000 vines in the rich, rocky soil of Cathedral Mountain Vineyard. Situated just 19 miles south of Alpine, Texas, the location was ideal––plentiful sun and chilly nights would sustain the Tempranillo, Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre vines until the grapes were ready for harvesting. That day finally arrived in 2006, when cultivators descended upon the vineyard to reap the first fruits destined to become Times Ten Cellars' Spanish- and Rhone-style wines. These may seem like extraordinary lengths to go to for a decent pour, but one look at Time Ten’s wine list is all it takes to realize its founders’ fondness for Texan-born wines knows no bounds. At the tasting bar, guests can sample limited-release wines such as Cathedral Mountain Vinyard's Dessert Red or Vino de Piedra, alongside other domestic vinos from the Lone Star State, as well as those from California and––on occasion––even Italy. On select nights, jazz music drowns out the chorus of sipping rising up from the comfy cocoa arm chairs in the lounge, and Times Ten Cellar's also offers occasional classes for anyone looking for an excuse to expand their knowledge of wine or stick their nose in other people's glasses.

During a trip to Munich's Oktoberfest in 2009, lifelong Texans Brad Perkinson and Michael Vieth developed a thirst for delicious craft beer. When they returned home, they set loose that passion on beer brewed in their home state. After getting laid off from his day job, Perkinson decided to turn his passion for brewing into a business, and founded the FireWheel Brewing Co. Today, droves of loyal customers eagerly sip and sample bottles of brews such as the rich, hoppy Texas Pale Ale, or the creamy, intense Midnight Ninja American Black Ale. During weekly tours, visitors watch the chemistry-magic of the brewing process first-hand. Guests end their tour with complementary FireWheel beers served in a pint glass, rustic mason jar, or even more rustic upturned ten-gallon hat.
