The Beerists Mini 169 – Market Forces Roundtable

By | April 2nd, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

In addition to our regular episode, everyone gets to hear the mini this week!

These mini episodes are normally for Patreon Patrons only, but we thought it would be good for everyone to hear it. If you enjoy it, and want over 24 hours worth of extra content, consider supporting us on Patreon!

A photo in a Facebook group sparked some interesting questions about the ethics of reselling rare beer, supply and demand, and how some breweries might be responding to that. Rubio, Anastacia, Grant, and Mike discuss their thoughts on the matter.

The Beerists are: John Rubio, Grant Davis, Anastacia Kelly, and Mike Lambert.

The Beerists Five Year Anniversary Party!

By | March 26th, 2017|Uncategorized|1 Comment

We’ll be celebrating our 5th Anniversary on Memorial Day Weekend, and want our listeners to join us in Austin for it.

Update 3.31.2017:
We’ve created a Facebook group for guests to organize shared transportation, lodging, meet ups, and anything else related to that weekend you want to discuss. It’s a closed group, so you can request access here:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/245518875855239/

Update 3.30.2017:
We’ve set up an Eventbrite page. You need to RSVP to attend the party at Jester King:
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-beerists-5th-anniversary-party-at-jester-king-in-austin-tickets-33220375036

 

Original Message:

Plans are still developing, but here’s what we’ve got so far:

Friday May 26, 2017
7 PM – Welcoming reception.
Location to be determined soon! Check back!

Saturday May 27, 2017
5PM – Five Year Anniversary Party & Bottle Share at Jester King Brewery!

Important! If you’re planning on coming to our Five Year Anniversary Party, be sure to RSVP here:

You didn’t think we’d ask you to come to Austin and miss visiting the beautiful Jester King brewery! They’ve given us a great space to throw our party on their land, tucked away from the crowds for our party and bottle share.

Speaking of bottle share– We encourage you to bring between a few bottles from favorite breweries in your area to share with the rest of us. Bring beer you’re excited about, and try beer others have brought! And be sure to bring your own glass, just in case.

Plus, several local breweries have also committed to providing some of their beer, free for the party! Expect beer from Hops & Grain, Blue OwlAustin Beerworks and more!

We may or may not be doing a live show, but we’re still talking about the logistics of that.

Sunday May 28, 2017
All Day- Austin brewery crawl
Stops will be determined soon! Check back!

Note: Outside of the party at Jester King on Saturday, the places we’ll be visiting will probably be spread out across the city, so transportation will need to be considered. Uber and Lift aren’t in Austin anymore, but there are other rideshare services such as Fasten, Fare, and RideAustin. Or, you can get together with other listeners and rent a car.

I’ll be updating this itinerary with more specifics as things come together. And of course, everything is 21 and up.
