The month of March is without a doubt one of the most exciting pages on the calendar here in Austin. Not only does my birthday fall at the top of the month, but the city has also included other major holidays and events throughout. This is why we at Black Star have been focusing extremely hard on creating lots of fun and celebratory events for our member-owners and patrons (even though I consider this my own personal month long birthday celebration).
In addition to our standing monthly events like the Beers n Bikes Social Ride, an exceptionally curated selection of Video Game Tournaments, and outdoor Patio Parties (our latest addition), we’ve included a ten day celebration of our favorite beverage that we’re calling Beer by Beerfest. From March 10th-19th, we will be offering a rotating selection of $4 house beers (including irrationals!) every hour (it’s a steal!). To kick it off, we’ll be screening the classic film Beerfest, “a classic tale of romance and tragedy,” on our big screen.
As we head into the next week, we’ll be hosting our first round of Hop Madness, followed by SπSw on 3/14, and the incredibly anticipated release of Can’t Quit You Too (Can’t Keep Quittin’ You). But that’s not all! We’ve also got Corned Beef and Cask to celebrate our patron St. Patrick, an outdoor Pig Roast for Hope that will focus on suicide prevention and mental health education.
Finally, our closing ceremonies will include another house beer release called Yes, Chef!, a collaborative effort between the beer and kitchen teams. A quarterly Red Line Brewery Tour is on the map, and our Second Semi Annual Cutest Puppy on the Patio Contest is well under way. I think we could all agree, March 2017 is shaping up to be one amazing month long Black Star Co-op Party, even if the focus is only kind of on my birthday.
