APA!APA #12 Release Party = BYOV + BYOD
Show 5:00PM
Ends 8:00PM

What’s your dog’s favorite record?

Tuesday nights are BYOV nights here, so we want you to bring your dog’s favorite vinyl (and your dog!) to help celebrate the release of our 12th 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 featured hop in this edition is Galaxy. The Australian hop brand Galaxy was developed from the breeding program at Hop Products Australia and is one the most in-demand hops in the world. It contributes a striking and distinctive citrus and passion fruit character.

12 beers into this series means we’ve donated almost $50,000 with these beers and raised another $35,000 with these parties! So, come help us shine a spotlight on these great dogs looking for their forever homes.

Weather permitting, we’re hoping to spin records right out in the beer garden. So stay tuned for more info, coming soon!

We’ve nicknamed the shows as being “All Good In The Hood”.

The Sunday Best Lucas Hudgins
Show 4:00PM
Ends 7:00PM

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.

THE HELL YES PROJECT BUILD-A-BIKE HOLIDAY LUNCHES
Show 11:30AM
Ends 5:00PM

Beer + Pizza + Party = Bikes for Kids

Looking for a great holiday lunch idea for your co-workers or a group of your super cool friends?

THE HELL YES PROJECT BUILD-A-BIKE HOLIDAY LUNCHES
11/27-12/23

Say “Hell Yes” to getting together with your friends, co-workers or family to help local-area kids have the opportunity to learn to ride their bike to the park, the pool, their friend’s house, and school.

Ghisallo Cycling Initiative is one of our The Hell Yes Project‘s nonprofit partners. They provide bicycle classes and clinics to children. Over 29,000 Austin-area youth have benefited from participating in Ghisallo’s various programs since 2013!

By saying Hell Yes, you’re helping Ghisallo with a few of their innovative programs: Bike Start and Bike Club as well as helping them replace aging bikes in their high volume Bicycle Skills Challenge program fleet.

Holiday Bike Build lunches can be booked between 11/27 & 12/23.

Sponsoring a Holiday Bike Build is only $300 per bike thanks to our partnership with woomBikesUSA, who is matching each bike with a $150-$200 in-kind donation (MSRP $450-$500 based on woom 4, 5, and 6 pricing) AND for each bike built, they will donate a woom 1, 2, or 3 (12″, 14″, or 16″) to Ghisallo’s Bike Start program! Your payment goes directly to Ghisallo and is tax-deductible! Super cool, huh!?

Never built a bike before? Fear not, Ghisallo’s friendly bike mechanics will be there to help you from start to finish. Each bike takes roughly 15-20 minutes to build.

Here’s all the 411 you need, from start to finish:
1. Set a date and time with Millie at The ABGB.
millie@theabgb.com
She’ll help you with all your reservation details as well setting up a group menu if necessary!

2. You and your friends or colleagues purchase as many bikes as you’d like. Our goal is 50 bikes!

3. Pay Ghisallo directly via this link prior to your build.

4. Show up to ABGB at your scheduled time/date ready to build bikes with help from Ghisallo’s bike mechanics.

5. Smile at your hard work because we want to show off how awesome you are on Instagram (@theabgb)

6. Cheers with some beers and lunch, you earned it!

Hell Yes! Now reserve your awesome bike build and we’ll see you here.

Here’s more about Ghisallo’s innovative programs:
The Bike Club program focuses on exploration, navigation, and transportation, provides the opportunity for youth to explore and connect with their communities, to learn to navigate and access the city, and to use their bikes for transportation to the park, the pool, their friend’s house, and school. With this program, Ghisallo works with underserved 3rd-8th graders primarily at Title 1 schools, and since 2013, they have served more than 18,000 youth participants via Bike Clubs and our Earn-A-Bike programs at over 30 sites across Austin!

Bike Start is a learn to ride program. Being able to ride a bike is a life skill that doesn’t just provide physical and mental health benefits, but also enables self-directed transportation. Ghisallo has discovered that a surprisingly high number of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders do not know how to ride a bike. With the new bikes you help us build, we’ll be able to support Ghisallo in expanding this programing to more children in underserved areas of Austin. At full scale, Bike Start would be the only high-volume learn-to-ride program of its kind in Austin.

The Bicycle Skills Challenge program been provided to more than 11,000 youth participants since 2013. These programs develop foundational skills in a large segment of the school population (high-volume, all 3rd – 5th grade students), increasing safety and riding skills proficiency as well as driving interest and demand for cycling and follow-on programs like Bike Clubs.

MORE ABOUT THE HELL YES! PROJECT
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.
