Anyone a Blackstar Co-op member-owner? Looks like they sent out an email to their members and said they need to pick up their sales or they may not survive. Also looking to take monetary donations. It never seemed like they were struggling but who knows they could be doing this to all help drum up some more traffic.
Mediocre beer since Jeff Young left (name drop watch). They have every advantage location wise (I think I read a couple years back that Crestview/ Allendale is the literal population center of Austin) but they just can't drum up enthusiasm for their food or brewing program.
I haven't been there in years. Last time I did go, they included a tomato beer in their tasting sampler.
so, which of you GOOFy shagsters can wear an XL t-shirt and not look like a bitchass? First beer, first served.
What's the return policy on these t-shirts? If I order one and later find I don't care for the beer, can I return the t-shirt?
Also, do you accept Best Buy coupons?
i would love to see the financials at black star to find out why they aren't making it. decent food, decent beer, decent location. i would guess its a combination of rent, mismanagement, and an incredible level of competition. you cant swing a dead cat without hitting a craft beer these days. a new one appears to hit the shelf every day.
what was the first brewpub in texas? copper tank?
What was the one in Austin that was around 1993-1994ish? Was maybe in the warehouse district?
Waterloo at 4th and Guad was first in Texas.
And what's the general opinion on that coffee beer from shiner?
Will you $#@!s quit trashing homebrew?
Some of us work our ass off so our beer doesn't taste like Strangeland's.
Picked this up today, first of there's I've had. Deep chocolate flavor, not quite as thick as I expected for a porter. Prefer it way better than the shiner birthday beer.
the body of brick top is just fine. what porters are you drinking that are thicker?
Victory at Sea is a 10% beer.
did this during the texans game
Which was best? I've somehow managed not to spend all my money on Cascade thus far.
