Rare Tapping – Sierra Nevada THREE Year Vertical of Bigfoot Barleywine @Red’s Porch
A very rare three-year vertical of a really big beer — the 2012, 2013 & 2014 Sierra Bigfoot Barleywines. That’s big!
Infamous Brewing Open House @Infamous Brewing
We built our initial brewhouse from the ground up. We also couldn’t afford a shiny new system without asking other people to pay for it. So piece by piece and part by part over a nine month period, we built the system that we are currently brewing on. Come take a look – it’s pretty cool what a few dudes, nine months and a bunch of beer can do! Kid & Dog Friendly. Live Music & Food Trucks.
Blurry Night Beer Release Party – Circle @Circle C Brewing
We’re releasing not only our NIGHTLIGHT Dry Irish Stout, but also our first beer blend, the Blurry Night, which is a mix of our BLUR Texas Hefe and NIGHTLIGHT Dry Irish Stout! We’re throwing a Beer Release Party at the brewery to celebrate those releases, so come out from 1-5pm to kick it with us and drink some brews.

Take a tour of Adelbert’s Brewery and sample beer fresh from the source. No reservations needed. Tours at approx. 1:45pm and approx. every 45 minutes after.

Austin Zealots Party & Q&A Panel @Craft Pride
Craft Pride is throwing a shindig to celebrate Austin’s amazing homebrew community, which means we’ve got an Austin Zealots party on our hands. “ZEALOTS” stands for Zymurgic Enthusiasts of Austin Loosely Organized Through Suds, and this homebrew club, around since 1990, has given birth to many great professional Texas craft brewers. Learn more about the organization and try out — er, meet — these hombrew…ers.
Homebrewers and those interested in home brewing are encouraged to join a Q&A Forum in Craft Pride’s backyard to learn and share about home brewing. Moderated by Craft Pride’s own Certified Cicerone Tre Miner, this panel discussion features Austin Zealots’ “Primary & Secondary Fermenters” — aka Corey Martin and Dan & Joelle Dewberry, respectively.
