Austin Event of the Week
This Thursday, hit the Austin Beer Guide Winter 2013 Release Party at the new-ish Austin Beer Garden Brewery (the ABGB, for abbreviators). Besides unveiling the newest edition of the guide, there'll be an awards ceremony honoring the 2013 winning picks, chosen by readers and editors. Expect to see all your favorite brewers (Hops and Grain, Austin Beerworks, Jester King), and more importantly, expect to drink from special edition firkins of their brews. "Craft Santa" will be there with gifts for beer drinkers who have been extra good (or have at least consumed a lot of craft beer) this year.
