**Events are subject to change! Always check the calendar before heading out throughout Austin Beer Week 2014! http://austinbeerweek.com**
There are several events going on tonight for Austin Beer Week:
Hoppy Hour – @Infamous Brewery
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!

Featuring live music, the Adelbert’s tasting room is ready to deliver a most festive happy hour. Purchase individual beers for $4 or a six sampler package with an choice of souvenir glass. (Note: brewery tours may be added if staff is available.)

Tapping – Revolver Fracker Barrel One @Alamo Drafthouse on Slaughter Lane
Revolver Brewing’s first limited-edition release comes to Alamo Slaughter Lane. This brew is Mother’s Little Fracker stout aged for a year in French oak barrels that previously held Syrah red wine made by Granbury’s Barking Rocks Winery, then blended with younger stout to create a balanced impression of chocolate, oak and fruit, with a dry finish. Get it while it lasts.
