Are you ready to Volunbeer with us?

The ABGB, as part of The Hell Yes Project, is teaming up with the Central Texas Food Bank on the last Tuesday of the month for an evening of volunteering at the Food Bank’s warehouse.

And, after a shift of putting your hands, heart and soul to work, you can enjoy the satisfying taste of a cold ABGB beer. That’s what we’re calling Volunbeer Night, and we want you and your crew to join us.

Different good times are planned for each month! Activities, speakers, and music are all coming up on tap! Come for the first one, February 27th, as it will feature a behind-the-scenes tour of the Food Bank and all its amazing abilities to serve our neighbors in need!

Mark your calendars for the last Tuesday of each month. The shift runs from 6pm-7:30pm, and brews and events go 7:30pm-9pm. All volunteers must be 21+ and provide proof of ID for beverage service. Please drink responsibly and make prior transportation arrangements as needed.

The Food Bank is located at: 6500 Metropolis Dr, Austin, TX 78744

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

If it’s Wednesday… then 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.

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.

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

HEADS UP! A WEEK LATER THIS MONTH DUE TO 4TH OF JULY!

Come help keep the pool sparkling for the swim season by jumping in to help Friends 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.

We’ll be doing the 11a-1p shift, but there are 9am and 1pm shifts, 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. And we’ll share the official signup link when it’s available.

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.

Come see behind the scenes of the GABF Brewpub Of The Year! Saturday afternoon, July 13, we want you here in the brewery. Join Swifty as he takes you through our process and philosophy.

Your ticket reservation to the tour costs you $6. But it also reserves 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 now:

​ABOUT JONATHAN TERRELL​
Jonathan Terrell is a new breed of country, pulling inspiration from dreamscapes and in depth stories from the gorgeous and gritty corners of Americana. He received international praise for his 2008 full length solo debut, “Trials and Stimulations”, and began work on his next record until shelving the project in 2011 to front and tour with the rock’n’roll band, Not In The Face.
Terrell returned to his second album of songs and shaped them into an enchanting collection of yearning and bravado, heartbreak and redemption. He released “Past the Lights of Town” four years later, in 2015 on Candy Bang Records. He followed the release of “Past the Lights of Town” with residencies in NYC, DC and Philadelphia, a UK tour and a sold out French Tour. Jonathan is currently touring in the U.S. and finishing a new full length record set to release spring of 2019.
“Jonathan Terrell Is a Feminist, Gun Toting Singer Smashing Country Stereotypes”- Noisy
“On last year’s notable sophomore LP, Past the Lights of Town, Terrell hits sparse and direct, his voice rusted with a hard twang in sharp ballads that twist exceptional lines like barbed wire”- Austin Chronicle
