Hops & Grain One-Year Anniversary Oct. 7

Need something to help you get over your hangover from the Texas Craft Brewers Festival? On October 7 (the day after the TCBF), Hops & Grain will celebrate its one-year anniversary. Press release from H&G:

HOPS & GRAIN BREWERY TURNS ONEA Celebration is in Order for H&G’s One Year Anniversary WHO:                           The crew at Hops & Grain.
 WHAT:                        Taking place one year to the day from when the first batch of Hops & Grain beer was brewed, is the anniversary fiesta at the East Austin brewery with flowing beer, food via the Backstage Grill and live music. Twelve beers will be featured, eight of which have never been available before and were brewed exclusively for the anniversary, including several Volumes of Oak selections, and the debut of the O-Fest, a crisp, timely Oktoberfest lager. The Hops & Grain team will also host a beer mile competition at 3PM (a drinking game combining running and speed drinking—oh yes!) with H&G founders, Josh and Meg Hare facing off in the final race. It has been quite the first year for the brewery—bringing home gold from the Great American Beer Festival last October, developing over 25 styles of beer and tripling production for next year—and the crew at Hops & Grain can’t wait to celebrate with all of their loyal fans.
