The APA!APA #10 Release Party & Mutt Rub
Show 3:00PM

mutt rub smaller2

 

We like mutt butts and we can not lie!

We’re celebrating the release of our 10th APA!APA beer for Austin Pets Alive! Our series of single-hopped American Pale Ales gives $1 from every pint sold to promote the adoption & care of Austin Pets Alive Long Stay Dogs! The hop for #10 is El Dorado. Bursting with juicy stone fruit and tropical notes, this bitter beauty from the Yakima Valley first came on the scene in 2010.

And 10 beers into this series means we’ve raised over $40,000 with these beers and parties! And this party is going to be all about rubbing some doggie butts to raise cash money for Austin Pets Alive!

Bring your own dog for a booty scratch and give some some scratch to help keep Austin no-kill.

Come meet some adoptable Austin Pets Alive! dogs, do some butt-rubbing of your own, and you might find your very own butt rub partner for life!

Fine Southern Gentlemen is going to be here live-printing some booticious merchandise to raisie money for APA!, too! Stay tuned for the awesome designs!

In fact, say you’re coming, and we’ll keep you updated on all the supercool stuff that’s going to happen!

See you here!

All Good In The Hood Warren Hood Happy Hour All Night
Show 6:30PM

If it’s Wednesday… than it’s time to get happy. And it’s time for Warren. Our weekly shows on Wednesdays with Warren Hood are just the thing you need to get you through the week.

Warren is our neighbor here in South Austin. He’s also an ABGB regular. We count ourselves as pretty lucky to have one of our city’s best musicians living so close… and even luckier that we get to put him and his stellar band to work bringing us his unique swinging Texas roots pop. We’ve nicknamed the shows as being “All Good In The Hood”.

Wednesdays are happy hour all night all long with a $1 off pints and reduced prices on pitchers.

So, come over. We’re going to be having a real good time… and we’re going to be dancing. We want you here.

Show 4:00PM

We call it the Sunday Best… because there’s no better place to be on a Sunday afternoon than with us at The ABGB.

Lucas Hudgins will be here for all your honky-tonking needs. Hudgins refuses to call what he does “Classic Country” because he says that makes it sound like its gone. And Lucas is proof that it’s not. Listening to him sing with deep and smooth confidence, it’s evident how alive and fresh the sound can be. Timeless, that’s what it is.

“Texas Roots meets snakeskin boots.”
– Austin Chronicle

Hang out under the trees.
Drink some beer (that’s all made here).
Hug your friends.
Have a sandwich… or a slice or two.
Swing your partners.

That’s the Sunday Best.

Club Roxandrew w/ The Ugly Beats, Peachfuzz, DJ Sue
Show 9:00PM

He’s her brutha from another mutha. She’s his sistah from another mistah. Roxanne and Andrew. Born on December 7th at 4:20 am, 18 years apart, as identical nocturnal siamese twins.
These two immaculately sexy beings were reunited, for the first time, in 2014 on the Starship ABGB, where they traveled the galaxy, serving up delicious malted beverages and pizza in a relaxed atmosphere with a dog friendly patio.

Now, in 2017, just as the Elders predicted 69 million years ago, America’s Best Large Brewpub in the Universe for two consectutive years, is on a collision course with the peaceful planet of South Austin. ROXANDREW are high as Wookies and they’ve eaten all the Tribbles, having completely forgotten to steer the Starship ABGB aka The Millenium Fermenter. Nothing can stop it now. It is their density.

Upon crash landing into Oltorf and Lamar, if there are any survivors, there will be a ROXANDREW Birthday Celebration of Hippoposterous Proportions!
Featuring the outta this world sounds of

MORE ABOUT THE HELL YES! PROJECTS
The idea behind the Hell Yes Projects is to prove out The ABGB’s philosophy that beer has the power to make everything better. Sharing times with friends. A fresh, hot slice of pizza. Seeing a great band. Hell yes, beer makes all of these things better. But we also believe that beer has the power to make our entire community better. We believe we can harness beer’s innate goodness and put it into action improving our neighborhood and city and enriching the lives of lots of folks. So, Hell Yes to more bikes around our city. And Hell Yes to making kids happy at the holidays with the joy (and the responsibility) of a brand new bike.
