Three Ways to Celebrate Repeal Day With Craft Beer

Prohibition-1Today marks the 80th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st amendment, in other words, the repeal of Prohibition.

Naturally, this beverage-centric historical milestone is worth celebrating.

And while there are bound to be plenty of cocktail bars celebrating in style this evening, here are a few Austin events to please people who don’t own Great Gatsby get-ups craft beer fans. They may not have necessarily been scheduled to honor repeal day, but hell, all it takes is a legal drink to be doing just that.

Fermentation Cycle

Hi Hat Public House (6:30pm), Wright Bros Brew & Brew (7:45pm) & Craft Pride (9pm)

A bicycle pub crawl hitting up three of the best craft beer spots East of Congress Ave. Special tappings, deals and pairings from Live Oak Brewing at each bar.

Offerings by bar:

Hi Hat Public House: Live Oak Primus and Bananas Foster pairing and a Duck Confit Sandwich special.

Brew & Brew: $3 imperial pints of Live Oak Pale

Craft Pride: Special Live Oak Dunkel and Live Oak Helles Rauchlager tappings

“Austin Beer” Signing and Real Ale Morgul Tapping

Easy Tiger 7pm

(Shameless self-promotion alert)

The ladies of Bitch Beer will be at Easy Tiger for a signing of our book “Austin Beer: Capital City History on Tap,” which covers the history of Austin craft beer from per-prohibition to present day. Come by to pick up a few holiday gift copies, and enjoy a special tapping of a year-old Real Ale Morgul barrel aged porter. Don’t let the cold scare you away, Easy Tiger’s patio has been tented and heated just in time for the event.

Rogue Yellow Snow Pint Night

Dig Pub 7pm

Order Rogue’s winter IPA Yellow Snow and get a free pint glass to keep. Word is the Texas Carboys homebrewing club will also be in the house to celebrate Repeal Day.
