2021 has finally kicked off, and what better way to get rolling than to celebrate a stellar Austin beer community collaboration and some neighboring expansion?! This Friday, January 29th you can get your hands on the first-ever Pinthouse Brewing (Congrats again on the new location) and Zilker Brewing Collaboration.
Thank goodness breweries have mastered social distancing and offer great spots to sit outside with our friends and cheers from feet apart…Amiright? That’s exactly how this fun collaboration was birthed. The crews from both Zilker and Pinthouse were grabbing a beer and supporting newcomers to the Austin scene, Meanwhile Brewing, this past December. Always refreshing to see reminders of just how supportive this craft community is. According to Eva Vaughn, Zilker Brewing’s Community Manager, “A foot race ensued, and a collab concept was born.”
What to Expect With This Collab?
The plan is to showcase the freshest most top-notch 2020 hops, giving the farmers responsible for them a true pat on the back. The final delicious product? The Foot Racer Hazy Double IPA. In both locations, Zilker and Pinthouse Ben White will offer their versions in 4-pack cans for pickup. (You should get both versions…)

The lineup will comprise of three staple beers including Electric Jellyfish Hazy IPA, Training Bines IPA, and Joe’s Magical Pils. Electric Jellyfish and Training Bines IPA have won the “Best Overall Beer” award with our pals at Austin Beer Guide and EJ took home the 2020 “Best Beer Made in Texas” by Zymurgy Magazine’s nationwide readers.
“We are thrilled to be distributing Pinthouse Brewing’s line-up of exceptional craft beers to the San Antonio-area,” notes Silver Eagle Beverage’s VP of Sales & Marketing J.P. Limbaugh, II. “Silver Eagle Beverages is committed to finding and introducing more of the high quality, unique craft beers that San Antonians crave and Pinthouse brews is a great way to kick-off 2021.”
