As craft beer drinkers, we tend to debate many things–whether a particular seasonal was better this year or last, who makes the best IPA in town, whether or not it’s okay to release pumpkin beers in August, ya know, the important stuff. However, one thing we here at Bitch Beer like to believe we can all agree on, is the need for some comprehensive reforms to Texas beer laws to benefit both craft beer producers and consumers.
Lucky for us, Open the Taps, the Texas-based grassroots organization currently working with the Texas state legislature to support these changes, will be holding an event at the Flying Saucer in Austin tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 28 from 4-7p.m.
The event will feature a special draught/ bottle list, (So far, we hear this includes a cask of Independence Brewing’s Convict Hill Oatmeal Stout with vanilla and oak. And, from Jester King, bottles of Commercial Suicide, Wytchmaker, and Das Überkind, plus Black Metal on draught, and (512) One… SO, YUM) and the opportunity to mingle with reps from Open the Taps and various breweries.
The event is open to OTT members and non-members alike, and should be a good ol’ time, especially if you’re interested in joining Open the Taps, or just looking to learn more about Texas beer laws.
