If you enjoy the wit and wisdom of the internet – but in analogue – here is your big chance to grab the 19th iteration of the Austin Beer Guide, the city’s long game arbiter of conflict between the craft slackers and the whale hunters.

In this issue, ABG’s biggest to date, beer fans can read about the tenets of burger pairings, the comically thrilling outcome of their latest “Beer & Loathing” (with 100% more Sixth Street!), and guest contributions from Austin BeerworksMichael Graham and Hops & Grain's Bob Galligan.

As is loftily expected of the ABG, they’ll be throwing their typical rager on April 28th (starting 6pm at the venerable Draught House) to celebrate the Spring/Summer 2016 issue release and their 5th anniversary with eye-catching headliners* like:
