Riley’s Tavern
Riley's Tavern, located just a few miles from Gruene Historic District on FM 1102 in Hunter, Texas, can proudly boast that they were the first venue to be awarded a beer license in 1933 after prohibition had ended. James Riley, at the ripe old age of 17, drove to Austin in a Model "T" Ford. He arrived early and was the first person awarded a beer license in the state of Texas. He ran the tavern continually for over forty years before illness forced him to retire. Today, new owner Joel Hoffman often performs with his band or books popular area performers to entertain the crowd. It's the perfect place to relax, have an ice cold beer, and enjoy an intimate set by a local artist.
