Beer Events Coming to Austin

Saint Arnold Brewing will hold its first-ever Austin Pub Crawl on Feb. 19. Craft Austin has the details.

And on Feb. 27, the new Beer Connoisseur magazine will promote the release of its second issue with a big shindig at Independence Brewing, with a pre- and post-party at the Ginger Man (including a shuttle to and from the brewery). Click on the image for info, or go to http://www.beerconnoisseur.com/issue-two-release-party.

UPDATE: Amy from Independence tells me: "
We've invited all the other area breweries to bring their beers over to the brewery for the event for a beer tasting fest. So far we have commitments from: Real Ale, Saint Arnold, Live Oak, 512 Brewing, North by Northwest, and Uncle Billy's."
