Now that Austin Beerworks has a dedicated taproom, the North Austin brewery is making sure it’s open seven days a week so that we can get our beer fix in.
Austin Beerworks officially debuted the brand-new taproom earlier this month but waited a few weeks before implementing the hours change. Starting Monday, it’s now open from 4 to 10 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays, 12 to 8 p.m. Saturdays and 1 to 7 p.m. Sundays.
It will also be easier than ever to share beers with your entire table or to sample some of Austin Beerworks’ taproom-only releases. Also coming Monday are branded pitchers, 4 oz. sample flights with four pours and style-specific glassware.
As the brewery noted in their announcement of the exciting changes, “this whole dedicated taproom thing is pretty sweet.”
More Austin beer news:
- The Yeti flagship store at the corner of Barton Springs Road and South Congress Avenue is hosting a weekend-long grand opening celebration and will have a handful of beers available at the bar area, where a back well is decked out in more than 12,000 bottle caps, among other neat features. The opening beer list, which will change out frequently in the future, includes Shiner Bock and Shiner Light Blonde, Live Oak Pilz, Austin Beerworks Eagle and Lone Star.
- St. Elmo Brewing has started getting one of its beers — the easy-drinking Carl Kolsch — to a few local bars, including the Draught House and Wright Bros. Brew & Brew. The brewery isn’t aiming to have wide-scale distribution, so these places are a neat opportunity to have St. Elmo beers beyond the South Austin taproom.
- After winning our hearts over with the now year-round Red Bud Berliner Weisse, Independence Brewing is introducing another canned sour brew to the market with Illustrated Man Dark Sour with Berries. Celebrate the launch tomorrow at a party that will double as a competition for tattoo lovers looking to win $300 toward their next tat.
- Uncle Billy’s Smokehouse & Brewery is hosting an Academy Awards watch party starting at 5 p.m. on Sunday with free popcorn and a pretty special beer. The Hell or High LAWger, which the brewpub originally made in honor of the film “Hell or High Water,” is coming back on tap to celebrate the four Oscar nominations that the bank heist movie has gotten, including Best Picture. The lager features prickly pear cactus as a nod to the setting of “Hell or High Water,” the rough-and-tumble desert of West Texas.
