In honor of long time member-owner and good friend Dan Dewberry's 50th birthday, we decided to show some love and re-brew the original home brew competition winning beer, Old Sour Dewberry. We will be releasing this beer on June 24th in celebration of Dan's birthday. Old Sour Dewberry is an Old Ale that is sour-mashed and brewed with Lyle's Golden Syrup. This beer is full of malt character, vinous and plum notes as well as a refreshing acidic finish. 7.5% ABV 24 IBU

Bad Batch Beer Release Party


We teamed up with Alamo Drafthouse in a collaborative effort to brew a beer that paired well with the new movie(you guessed it) Bad Batch. What we ended up with was a beer brewed with ingredients sourced from the Austin area including peach smoked malt from Blacklands Malt in Leander and locally grown lemon verbena. Bad Batch is a light, smoky beer with a slight herbal character that is refreshing yet still complex. We will be releasing this beer the night of the movie premier, however, you can go by any of the 6 Alamo Drafthouses in town to try it out in the weeks leading up to the release! 4.5% ABV 16 IBU

Flight Of Spice

Black Star is teaming up with Tears of Joy Hot Sauce Shop in an effort to pay tribute to one of our favorite YouTube shows, Hot Ones. Here is how it'll work:

- We will pre-sale 30 tickets that are good for 1 flight of 10 chicken wings tossed in increasingly spicy, local hot sauces(they will get VERY spicy)

- On the day of the event, everyone is encouraged to show up at least 30 mins early to get a seat and a wing placemat. 

- At 7PM we will pass out the pre-tossed wings to each participant.

- We will then host an interview where all participants will follow along with us as we eat a wings as we ask questions. You WILL be sweating. 

We were lucky enough to get local comedian and radio personality, Matt Bearden, to team up with us for this inaugural event, so this is sure to be a great time. Beers will be drank, laughs will be had and mouths will burn. Although there are only 30 tickets available, feel free to come grab a beer and watch a large group of adults cry. Get your spot before they run out!

"It's not a Pneuma"

We took our Pale Ale base, Pneuma, and overloaded it with late boil additions of Citra and Amarillo. Then we dry hopped it. Then, we dry hopped it again. Finally, we dry hopped it once more in the serving vessel, so the beer you taste coming out of the tap will be the first time it is not directly in contact with those citrusy, floral American hops we know and love. If your glass stays full long enough, you may be able to dig through the aroma and find a light bodied, 5.2% ABV 30 IBU Pale Ale holding it all up. There's a very limited amount of this beer, get it while you can.
