There are no haircuts to be had at the Barber Shop in Dripping Springs.
"There's that genuine look of shock and they're looking for the chair and you see it and you ask, ‘Can I help you?” Steve McIntosh said. “(They say) I was coming in for a hair cut but I'm guessing you don't cut hair anymore.”
The days of sweeping hair from the floor are over. The Barber Shop is a now brewpub, but staff have a little fun keeping up with the confusion.
"I've offered. I have scissors, but no one ever takes me up on that," McIntosh said.
Instead, visitors throw back cold ones which is easier now, thanks to Texas lawmakers.
"The recent package of bills that went through the legislature is probably the biggest step forward in craft brewery since brew pubs were legalized 20 years ago," McIntosh said. "You can expand your business. Find new markets for your business."
Thanks to the new laws, brewpubs can sell their beer at their business and to distributors.
As a result of the looser regulations, business is booming. Dripping Springs city leaders say they're reviewing permits for other Central Texas breweries wanting to relocate to Dripping Springs.
"If you have more people out here kind of offering that kind of product then you get a better tourism draw," McIntosh said.
McIntosh says he sees new faces every weekend and so does the visitor's bureau.
"When I first took this job a few months ago, people would stop and say to me how long before I get to Fredericksburg,” Pam Owens with the Dripping Springs Visitor’s Bureau Director, said. “Now they're stopping and wanting to come to places in Dripping Springs."
There are also wineries in the Dripping Springs/Driftwood area. You can find out more at DrippingSpringsTX.org.
