American Craft Beer Week Austin Events For Tuesday 5/12/15
American Craft Beer Week is here and there are some exciting beer events going on all week.
*Events are subject to change, please make sure to check with the venue directly beforehand.
Events for Tuesday 5/12:
11am Pneuma Tapping @Black Star Co-Op
Pneuma is a West Coast-inspired pale ale packed with delicious American hops. Centennial, Citra, and Cascade hops are introduced multiple times during the brewing process, with a focus on late additions and dry hopping. Stemming from our love for crisp, clean, hoppy beers, Pneuma lets the flowers do all the talking so we don’t have to.
