Saturday afternoons at Thirsty Planet Brewing Company are always fun times, but when there’s something special going on, you know people are going to go bananas. This past Saturday, the brewery saw tons of monkeying around in honor of the release of the Silverback Pale Ale. The beer is brewed specifically for the Austin Gorilla Run with a portion of all Silverback sales going towards the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund.
Nearly all Thirsty Planet employees and volunteers dressed up in gorilla suits to support the cause, and Austin Gorilla Run organizers were on site to sign up people for the run, which will be held in downtown Austin on Jan. 19. More than 30 people registered for the Austin Gorilla Run, including Bitch Beer’s own writer, Kat.
Check out the photo gallery below to see all the jungle fun at Thirsty Planet last Saturday, and be sure to look for Silverback Pale Ale on tap around town. Also, if you feel like letting your inner animal out, there’s still time to register for the Austin Gorilla Run!
