Dust off your boots and mosey on into the toughest and tastiest brewery in town. Tucked away in San Marcos, Dos Desperados Brewery is a family owned and operated brewery dedicated to crafting, pouring and serving crowd favorites and specialty brews.  
 

It all began over 20 years ago when Dos Desperado's head honcho, Steve Munson (co-owner and head brewer), got the brewing bug. His first brew was a Mexican style ale and was such a hit at his backyard cookouts that he could no longer keep up the demand  brewing in his family home. That is when Steve decided it was time to turn his favorite hobby into a business. In 2014 Dos Desperados was born. Dos Desperados or "the Rebel in all of us"  perfectly represents Steve's adventurous brews– Habeerneros IPA, double Dealer Brown Ale and Homicidal Manic Stout– just to name a few.

And it's a family affair! On any day of the week you will find one of the Munson family members serving up these delicious suds. So saddle up and come try a beer (or two) at San Marcos' very own drinking hole.
