Mark your calendars for January 29, 2012 folks, this one is going to be legendary.
Bats & Beers connects brewmasters, chefs and engaged Austinites to explore creations and collaborations centered around remarkable beer and food. Our winter showcase will be held at the funky East-side Pine Street Station, home to the artist Reji Thomas. This special Winter edition of Bats & Beers will proudly showcase a first for collaboration in Austin. Jake Maddux of Thirsty Planet Brewery is crafting a special Bats&Beers release, a Smoked Coffee Belgian Dubbel. This beer has been specially crafted by Thirsty Planet to pair with the world famous Franklin BBQ Brisket from the smoking genius of Aaron Franklin. This special release is being brewed to accentuate the smoke flavors of the brisket and the Espresso Coffee BBQ sauce by using coffee from Kohana Coffee. Come join us for this unique beer-and-food culinary collaboration, co-presented by You Stay Hoppy Austin, and let your taste buds explore the possibilities while enjoying the commanding view of downtown Austin and Lady Bird Lake. Live art demostrations to be announced later.
The event takes place on Sunday, January 29 from 5pm-9pm. Your ticket will covers access to the art gallery, live music, BBQ from Franklin BBQ, and etry into our raffle drawing. Free beer tastings will be provided.
