Default Austin, TX

I know there is at least 1 person who is from Austin here.

I will be leaving for Ft. Hood on Sunday. I will be going to playing tourist in Austin and San Antonio over the following weekend (10-11 Dec).

Anyone want to get together at a pub for a round or 2? Or at least make some recommendations for some "you can't miss this" sight in either place?

I've been the the Alamo and the River Walk before so I will be taking my wife there to experience them.

Right now it looks like my wife will be coming along too, so your significant other is more than welcome also.

A friend of mine already recommended Dan McClusky's Butchery in Austin and the Mi Teirra (sp?), Hung Fongs and Earl Abel's for pies in SA...something about pubs being located around 6th St.

As always, the first round's on me.

Greatest pub in Austin: Gingerman on 4th and Guadalupe down town.

check out http://gingermanpub.com/austin/draught.html for their beer list. I think it's slightly dated, but they have about 90 things on tap.

That's a decent list.

Is that St Armold the special Christmas, oops, sorry, holiday, brew that everyone carries on about? I need to take some home.

Actually, there's one brewer in IL, you know who you are, who mentioned a relative delivering him a 6'er. Now, if I can only figure out which beer it was.

I also need to pick up a case of Shiner Bock for a co-worker.

Can anyone else recommend a seasonal/special brew?

I have some of their Christmas Ale. I think it's in close relation to Yak Vomit.

"Yak Vomit"! Now there's one I haven't tried.

I saw a Musk Ox once or twice in Norway...and I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night...

I'll have to dig through my fridge. I think I've got 5 of the 6 pack left. If that is the case I can give it to you on the 11th if you want to meet up somewhere. I'm partial to gingerman myself

Hrm, it's a shame you aren't around on the 17th. The Austin Zealots group gets together at gingerman every 3rd Saturday. I've never been, but it seems like it would be fun.

Shiner has a seasonal out...a dunkelweizen. It's not much like any dunkel I've ever had tho.
