Food-o-File: Friday Lagniappe

A little extra Austin food news

Sometimes there is too much Austin food news to squeeze into the print edition of the Chronicle. Rather than wait a week, we've decided to give our readers a little bite of something extra.

• In keeping with the recent expansion of their brewery, Rick Engel and his team at Uncle Billy's Brewery and Smokehouse (1530 Barton Spring Rd.) have added several new beer-infused items to the menu such as ale French onion soup, beer-battered oysters, and the Barton Cristo, their take on the classic, battered in craft beer. Also be sure to check out the new brunch offerings and the live music offered from 2-6pm on Sunday afternoons.

• The folks from Cuvée Coffee are launching their Black and Blue cold brew in nitro cans this weekend with some festivities at the site of their new mural (I-35 North access road at E. Fourth). Drop by to snap up freebies such as cans of cold brew in koozies and limited edition prints of the mural itself while a "Black and Bluegrass" band plays. Supplies will be limited. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 18 -19, 9:30-11:30am.

• The Warehouse District's Fado Irish Pub (214 W. Fourth) is not just for soccer watching; they are also proud of their burgers paired with craft beers. That's why they developed the Hopped Up Burger specials only available Fridays and Saturdays during October. Some element of the dish will be infused with the chosen beer and the bundle includes a burger made with grass-fed beef on a locally made brioche bun with one side dish and a local craft beer pairing for $14.95. This weekend's offering is the Tailgater – American grass-fed beef, barbecue sauce, applewood smoked bacon, jalapeño Havarti cheese, and Shiner beer-battered onion rings paired with a Shiner.
