"Helles Yeah.” Lucky Vines Vineyard and Winery is doubling down with new brew tap and patio.

Lucky Vines Vineyard and Winery is no longer just a place to enjoy a great bottle of vino in a beautiful setting.


The Dublin-based business owned by Jeff and Kimberly Hutchins is doubling down on its luck with plans to open Lucky Brewing Co.

“We have been really busy working behind the scenes this past year,” Kimberly told Beneath the Surface News. “We have been brewing and perfecting our beer for more than a year now and we are ready for our grand opening.”


The craft brewery is located at Lucky Vines Vineyard, but is not part of the tasting room.


Lucky Brewing Co. will include a six-tap brew trailer and outdoor beer garden with a patio and lots of comfy seating.

“We built the patio around a beautiful oak tree that we have wrapped with twinkle lights. It’s a gorgeous setting,” Kimberly said. “There is a beautiful red dragonfly that has made its home at our new Koi pond just near the brewery patio.”


In fact, one of the brews that will be introduced on grand opening weekend - Irish Red Dragonfly - is named in honor of the brewery’s unofficial mascot.

Other beers that will be introduced that weekend include Emerald Isle IPA, Bunnyfoot Blonde, Lucky Light, Dublin's Cherry Limeade Seltzer (an alcoholic seltzer made from Dublin Bottling Works cherry limeade) and Key Lime Pie Sour.


“All of our Lucky brews are made on site,” Jeff said. “Ryan Hoffman will serve as head brewer, overseeing the production of all the beers we will be serving on tap.”

Lucky Brewing Co. is set to host its grand opening on Friday, Aug. 27.


The brew tap trailer and beer garden will be open from 4-9 p.m. on Friday and 12-9 p.m. Saturday with live music on both days.


Additional beers that will be introduced to the public soon include Helles Yeah and "Luck In" Bock Texas Lager.
