Lakeway restaurant and beer garden Hops and Thyme has new ownership as of July 1. New co-owner Andrew Rincon was a longtime patron of the restaurant, located at 2125 Lohmans Crossing Road, Ste. 400, Lakeway.

“The old owners put it up for sale, and I just didn’t want to see this place go,” he said.

From there, he and his friends Neil Engelmann and Jacqueline Wilson took over. Known for its 36 beers on tap and burgers, the new Hops and Thyme owners plan to keep the same name and feel of the restaurant. The restaurant is closed for repairs through July 9.
