Another new brewery in Austin: Uncle Billy’s Brew & Que brewers Amos Lowe (Barton Springs location), Brian Peters (Lake Travis location), and some other Uncle Billy’s employees are leaving to start up something called theAustin Beer Garden Brewing Com­pany, to be located somewhere in South Austin. They’ll be focused on craft beer and craft pizza. That’s a big shift that ought to have ripples across the Austin brewing community – under their guidance, Uncle Billy’s produced some Great American Beer Festival medal-winning brews. Filling the vacuum there will be Michael Waters, jumping from Independence Brewing. If you don’t recognize Waters’ name, you may recognize Lupulust, Epanoui, and Stash IPA – all brews that he had a hand in creating or reformulating. Read The Full Article here.
