As if October weren’t already punishing our liver’s resolve enough, it’s that time that comes every three months; the new Austin Beer Guide issue release party.
Austin Beer Guide have been accused of keeping this printed lazy excuse for “journalism” around just to throw these parties, and they’d like to take this opportunity to respond to such acclaims- yes, that is correct.
Without the parties to keep the blood flowing they would have stopped killing themselves over this years ago and crawled back to blogging, and then after realizing blogging is a dying medium, just quit altogether resigning to drinking “dad” beers while listening to Wilco (the earlier records) maybe once or twice a week. You know, on the nights Modern Family, Master Chef, or New Girl are not on.
So yeah, they’re excited about this PARTY!
And it was (mostly) kidding around about the guide-soul-sucking stuff. ABG still like it plenty and especially this one. It’s chock full of cool shit like Brewers’ Brain from Jeff Young of Black Star Co-op, Over a Pint with Pinthouse Pizza, a rundown of this town’s Lager Lovers, some in-depth, hard hitting reporting on how a few folks are making Ch-Ch-Changes post 2013 TX Lege. sessions, a nice little ditty by our friend over at An Avenue about how and what great local beers to drink while watching football, and finally our first ever overseas edition of Beer and Loathing.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. You’ll get to that next time you get to the bar before your friends or find a guide conveniently located in a taproom bathroom stall. Let’s move on to the party details.
