Come sample 5 different incarnations of the King of Texas Pumpkin Beers! We’ll be tapping a 2013 keg, a Bourbon Barrel Aged 2014 keg, a 2015 keg, a 2016 keg and a 2016 cask! Guests will be invited to sample at their own pace and will get full 5oz samples of all 5 beers for only $20!
The Bourbon Barrel Aged 2014 is VERY limited so will only be served to those who purchase the full flight. All other versions will be served by the glass.
Via 313 will be serving a special pizza designed to be paired with the Pumpkinator for those who arrive hungry.
Tickets can be purchased the day of the event at Craft Pride on a first come, first served basis. ONLY 90 tickets will be released, so get here early! Sorry, no reservations or pre-sales.
Thursday, 11/03: Discussion Panel: What is Hoppy?
Join us as we lead a discussion panel with some of Austin’s most prominent hop wizards! Craft Pride Owner JT Egli will moderate the panel comprised of Austin Beerworks’ Will Golden, Hops & Grain’s Josh Hare and Pinthouse Pizza’s Joe Mohrfeld.
The focus will be on – you guessed it – HOPS! Topics will range from hop sourcing to hopping techniques with a focus on what the future holds for hoppy beers (as well as just what the hell the word “hoppy” really means).
The discussion starts at 7:00, but come early to sample some special hoppy offerings from each of the participating breweries, including some special collaborative efforts with the Craft Pride staff!
