The ABGB Brewery Tour
Show 12:30PM

Saturday afternoon, April 29th! We want you here in the brewery. Join Amos or Swifty in the brewery as they take you through our process and philosophy.

What kind of music helps brew a better lager? What’s their favorite beer to make? Why doesn’t the ABGB brew wheat beers? How do you finish this phrase: “Clean or ____ “? These, and many more burning questions may be answered when you come backstage and hang out with us on a Saturday afternoon.

Your ticket reservation to the tour costs you $6. But when you come for your tour, we’ll give you a beer (and it’s best to tour the brewery with a beer in hand), so it’s practically free. And if your prefer not to have a beer, your $6 can be applied towards an ABGB t-shirt.

The tour is limited to just 25 people (21 and over, please). Tickets avail at attached link back up top to claim your spot!

The Earlybird: Magna Carta
Show 6:30PM

Magna Carda is quickly becoming one of the most buzzed about band in Austin mostly due to their incredible music and their unique sound. This hip hop group (who was just named best Hip Hop band in Austin) is quickly blowing up and we’re pretty sure this is the last time we’ll have them before they get too big for us! They’ve played ACL, Sound on Sound, Euphoria, you name it, they’ve been there and rocked countless audiences and critics and now they’re coming to The Earlybird at The ABGB! Called “Austin’s answer to The Roots”, Magna Carda combines soul, jazz and hip-hop to carve out a distinct sound and is sure to make you a fan!

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

Hello there. We’re getting used to seeing you here. It makes us happy know that you’re coming in with your crew.

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.

The Hell Yes Project: Barton Springs Pool Cleaning
Show 11:00AM

Come help get the pool all ready for the swim season by jumping in to helpFriends of Barton Springs Pool. The group meets the first Thursday of the month. The pool is closed, so it’s so nice to be there when we have it to ourselves.

Sign up for a shift at the Friends of Barton Springs Pool’s SignUp page. (LINK COMING SOON).

We’ll be doing the 11a-1p shift, but there’s a 9am shift, too! …and check it out, everyone that volunteers to join will be welcome to come to the ABGB afterwards for a ‘slice of love’ on us.

Please tell us you’re coming by saying “Hell Yes!” in the comments.

ABOUT THE HELL YES PROJECT
We believe that beer makes it better. Times with friends, a hot slice of pizza, seeing a great band, and, after a nice dip in Barton Springs and some time on the pool’s hill, getting something cold to drink. Hell yes, beer makes all of these things better. But we also believe that beer has the power to make our entire community better. The Hell Yes Project’s goal is to prove this idea true. The Hell Yes Project harnesses beer’s innate goodness and puts it into action improving our city and enriching the lives of lots of folks.

Hell yes, the ABGB loves Barton Springs Austin TX. Long before we ever broke ground on the ABGB, we had many a “meeting” on the pool’s hill dreaming the place up. It’s near (thank goodness) and dear to our hearts. We think think it’s one of the best things about our city (and pretty much, Planet Earth, too). So Hell Yes to doing our part to celebrate and preserve it for us and for future generations. That’s why it’s a Hell Yes Project.

The Earlybird: Riders Against The Storm
Show 6:30PM
If you have heard of RIDERS AGAINST the STORM (RAS) , then you know they are a three-time winner of Best Band in Austin, and have a sound and force that is unmatched, and you know you need to come to this show. If haven’t heard of Riders Against the Storm, then you REALLY need to come to this show. Taken from their own description: “This husband-wife hip hop duo operates from a boundless space and time. Their music and work, crafted from the funk, the SOURCE, and the gods of Hip Hop, is ready to take everyone it touches into a more powerful part of themselves.”
It is very possible RAS won’t be Austin’s own very soon because they’re music is too amazing to be contained, so come check them out before we are forced to share them with the world! RAS will rock the Earlybird stage at The ABGB, and you’ll see why they’re changing the world all before your bedtime!
