Riverwalk Brewing Company's canning production
A lot of beer cans is the answer!

Riverwalk Brewing Company's microbrewery is expansive. With room to stretch out, they make you enter through the production part of the brewery, before getting to the taproom out back. It's a whole other world out back though, with plenty of tables and a strong communal setup.
