Hops & Grains Debuts, Austin Beer Guide Returns

Press release from Austin Beer Guide:

Austin Beer Guide 
to Release Fall Issue
and Throw Issue Release Party (Again)

AUSTIN – They (BeerTownAustin and Craft Austin) used to have their own, separate blogs, but they’ve pretty much trashed those to focus on one magazine and one website — Austin Beer Guide. The fall issue of Austin Beer Guide is printing now and poised to make a medium to huge splash on the Austin (beer) scene. They hope you like the new guide, as it nearly gave the publisher a nervous breakdown. What is in the issue? Good question: The usual stuff (maps, brewery and brew pub write ups, etc.). This is the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) issue. They were given press credentials, therefore obligated to write about it. It is still an Austin-centric issue though, with GABF coverage given a Texan angle (mostly). Did you love the word search last issue? Well it’s back, along with a crossword puzzle! And much (should be read MUCH) more.

Distribution of the fall guide will start during Austin Beer Week — Drop locations include area breweries, brew pubs, bars, shops and restaurants. Follow ABG twitter feed for distribution as it happens.

ALSO, to celebrate the new issue, there will be an issue release party on October 26th. The party will start around 5pm at the Draught House (4112 Medical Pkwy). ABG will play second fiddle to Hops & Grain, for whom the party is really being thrown. The party will be the first time their beers will be served anywhere on Earth. BeerTown Austin Tom Selleck-esque Mustache pint glasses will be given out for free with the purchase of any Hops & Grain beer. There will also be a grab bag full of junk (amazing swag) from GABF and local brewers.
