Austin Pets Alive! 1156 W Cesar Chavez St, Austin, Texas 78703

The primary focus of ABGB’s partnership with Austin Pets Alive! is with their Long Stay Dogs: amazing dogs that have been with the shelter for 300+ days and are still waiting for their forever homes.

To help Austin Pets Alive Long Stay Dogs find these great dogs homes we hold volunteer sessions designed to shine a light on deserving doggies and help them find forever homes.

This month session is taking place on a Saturday morning! We’ll join the APA! Campus Cleanup crew at the APA!’s Town Lake Animal Shelter. Please bring gloves if you have them!

This is a 2-hour shift during which we will be improving the visual impression of the grounds of our Austin Pets Alive! TLAC location. It won’t have interaction with the dogs, FYI, they’ll be getting fed and walked! The actual project is TBD! Stay tuned!

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.”

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.
