You might have heard that the craft beer scene in Austin has some nice things going for it: shiny new taprooms, national awards, maniacal line-standing weirdos ... and a quartet of beer media champs bringing all that self-congratulatory, back pattin' hype to you in a clever, semi-annual glossy reminiscent of those rad Nineties post-punk fanzines dedicated to niche-grade bands like Skinny Puppy. But apart from all their great beer scribing, ABG creates the craft dialogue in the form of Lager Jam in the summer and a best-of awards in the winter, not to mention some pretty slayworthy guide-release parties.
