    As fall temps finally reveal themselves, The Brewer’s Table steps up the Friday night cookout game with a garden BBQ collaboration featuring two renowned guest Pitmasters, Evan LeRoy of LeRoy and Lewis and Matt Horn of Oakland’s Horn Barbecue. They join TBT’s own chef Zach Hunter for a night of collaborative BBQ and brews. Head Brewer Drew Durish will also be releasing two new beers during the event — Husked Away, a corn husk-infused Mexican lager with black lime — and Fine, a hoppy wheat lager made with Citra and Ekuanot hops.

    Tickets are $30 and include a heaping plate of food with an element from each Chef (menu to be announced soon) and two of Drew’s new brews. Additional food and drinks will be available for purchase at the Lager Garden and cocktail bar’s outdoor container bar.

    Guests can mingle with the chefs at the outside smoker and enjoy games in the outdoor space including bocce.

    Tickets can be purchased in advance HERE.

    More details on Drew’s Brews:

    Husked Away- A riff on a Mexican lager with a twist! We infused the brewing water with toasted corn husks that contribute a faint green tea character without the astringency. We then used the corn husk foundation water to mash in with flaked maize, Munich, and Vienna malts, then added black limes at the end of the boil to create an oddly familiar drinking mate that you can’t quite put your finger on…yet. With six weeks in a medium-plus toast foeder, the oak pops off in between wisps of limeade and spice forward hops.

    Fine- We’ll make some hoppy jazz. This hoppy wheat lager received a healthy dusting of Citra and Ekuanot hops, with another blast of Simcoe lupulin powder. Then we did it again because that’s how we roll occasionally. Fine spent five weeks in a medium toast foeder before moving to stainless for a final dry hop prior to packaging.

      We’ll be teaming up with the amazing folks at DogJoy to host an all-inclusive event to benefit Heart of Texas Lab Rescue! We’ll have drinks, food, local vendors and fun for you and your pup!

        Austin institution, Mean Eyed Cat celebrates its 14th Anniversary with live music as well as all-night drink and food specials on Friday September 28th. Guests can enjoy an array of Johnny Cash’s top hits from tribute band The Band in Black, who take the stage at 7 p.m.

          Guests will be treated to a five course dinner with a beer pairing for each course. The beer lineup includes the Oarsman Ale, a tart wheat ale which exudes citrus and lemony aromas from Cascade hops. Other beers like the Lager Of The Lakes, and Two Hearted Ale, an American IPA will be making a couple of highly anticipated appearances. The list also includes the Octoberfest, a beer which spends a full six weeks fermenting, perfect for the transition into autumn. These will be joined by The Wild One, a Sour Brown Ale – which is in very limited quantities due to the time spent in wood foeders, before treated with Brettanomyces.

          The dinner menu will be unique to this evening, allowing for guests to experience the perfect pairing of these beers with the coursed dinner using seasonal ingredients available that day.

                  Join Texas Land Conservancy as we bring the Austin community together to shed light on the importance of land conservation for the health of our water systems. We will be donating $1 for every beer sold during the event to TLC while supporting their mission to protect the land, water, and wildlife of Texas. So come on out, bring all your friends, and support Texas land with an ice cold beer!

                  What does beer have to do with land conservation?
                  Private land conservation plays an important role in making sure that everyone can use the water that flows through our state for drinking, recreation…and yes, beer! Access to clean water is a basic human right, and many of our great Texas rivers are threatened by pollution and over-use. Since there is water in beer, it’s not just your drinking water that’s threatened—your beer is, too.
