PWR Presents: SpaceSlam

[This Space Party and wrestling show is free to attend and all-ages. 21+ to drink. Content may not be suitable for children]

Space...

The heavenly firmament, the cold and inky galactic vice!
The nebular starhome, the yawning void, the dome of trapped lights!
Grandpa's night-ceiling, the big-time planet hole!

The Cosmos!

Forever it squeezes our tiny Earth - forever it taunts us with a hollow voice, a voice we are all born hearing. "Who dares venture into the forbidden darkness?" it says. 

Finally, after millenia of silence, we answer: "Us!" We scream. "We dare!" No more will we surrender to the angst of being an Earth-bound people! We will finally claim our destiny as children of the stars! Hey, the Galaxy, do YOU dare take on humanity... IN THE RING?!

WRESTLING...THE FINAL FRONTIER!

The Partyweight Belt has been stolen by a MYSTERIOUS SPACE QUEEN! We've gotta get it back, and the only way is to transform 4TH TAP BREWING CO-OP into a huge spacecraft. Once we're up there, why not PARTY LIKE NEVER BEFORE?! What radiant anomalies will we behold? What mysterious creatures will we encounter? How will our wrestlers match up against alien beings? Who will be the COSMIC CHAMPION?!

Plot a course to 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op on December 9th!

This galactic battlefield will behold planet-destroying competition by all our favorite Party Athletes:

Theodosia [Partyweight Champ], Dino Rida, Dan "the Man" Ziglar, Randy "The Eagle" Eagleman, Dadbod, Luigi Primo, Big Daddy Bolero, The Dumpster Babes, The Intergalactic Express, Chubby Uncle Juan and Puggin'Head, and many more!

About KING:
Kids in a New Groove's (KING) mission is to provide Central Texas children living in foster care with a committed one-on-one mentoring relationship through private music instruction. Since 2009, KING has empowered over 500 youth with music. We provide youth in foster care with consistent mentorship through the delivery of free, in-home music lessons. Children in foster care are a highly vulnerable and underserved population. Having undergone emotional, sexual, or physical abuse, the children’s lives are traumatic before they even enter foster care. Our music mentors and their students build a lasting relationship of support which helps our students succeed academically, emotionally and socially. KING equips youth in care with concrete tools to show the world and, more importantly, youth themselves what they can accomplish with passion and dedication.

Season 9: An Honest Day's Prayer

Reading from his new volume, An Honest Day’s Prayer, Nathan Brown offers prayer-like poems of hope, healing, and gratitude – often laced with a strong dose of humor – for the people that matter most to us, the state of our world, and some of the ordinary and extraordinary things that make life worth living. Pianist Carla McElhaney provides reflective, curated musical responses to Nathan’s readings by composers who frequently appear on her KMFA Night Music playlist, including Ola Gjielo, Peter Maxwell Davies, Federico Mompou, Erik Satie, Philip Glass, and more.

“Healing requires a sacred algebra,
a ganja science with no hypotheses
or pie charts to explain how to free
the striving and dread-locked soul.”

–Nathan Brown
from “Faerie on Fire”
An Honest Day’s Prayer

4th Tap Anniversary: II

Year two is coming to a close, better throw a party! Help us celebrate the SEQUEL year and help us prep for a TRILOGY. Yes - movie jokes. We got 'em. 

Join us on 11/11 - to celebrate 4th Tap's 2nd anniversary!

We're bringing a whole new CAST of beer releases for this RED CARPET event! SPOILERS AHEAD!

*cough* fine, fine, fine. We'll stop.

SPECIAL RELEASES:

- Whiskey Barrel-aged Lawgiver: Remember that Russian Imperial Stout we releasesd right in the middle of June? Well, we aged a bit in whiskey barrels from our friends over at Banner Distilling, one of which we served up at our Alamo Drafthosue screening of Dredd. The other few we're saving for special events over the next few years, special events like our second anniversary.

- Firkin Bar! We will have four firkin's on site, starting at 1pm with:
Strawberry Vitality - Blonde w/ Cardamom
Bourbon & Oak the Upside Down - Brown Ale

We will tap 2 more special firkins at 5pm, or as soon as we drain the first two firkins.

- R&D Pilot Batches! So many pilot batches! These are each a single or double corney batch on our small pilot system to test out new ideas, recipies, ingredients, or techniques. Releases schedule:

2pm - Black Lodge
Black IPA
ABV: 6.5%
10 oz./$5
Existing in a stylistic extra-dimensional space, this medium bodied IPA has subtle roasted notes and a rich chocolate / citrus character.

4pm -Cowboy Behop
Cryo-Hopped IPA
ABV: 7%
10 oz./$5
A jazzy space-noir of tropical hops. Finished entirely with Cryo Citra and Cryo Mosaic hops this IPA has a smooth, almost creamy finish, with an upfront horn blast of tropical hops.

6pm -Snaggletooth
Session Porter
ABV: 3.5%
16 oz./$5
Full in body, but low in alcohol, this bready Porter has a full depth of malt character and subtle coffee notes. A great beer to keep a cool Fall night going.

8pm -Run PB&J
Peanut Butter Amber Wheat
ABV: 5.5%
10 oz./$5
A literal peanut butter sandwich in a glass. Toasted malts create a gentle bread crust character while delicate sweet malts balance out a liberal addition of peanut butter.

Food Trucks:
Garbo's Lobster Truck ATX
The Hot Box Diner

Live Music in the Brewhouse:
Brian Wolff and Brett Montgomery Winning 2pm-5pm
The Selfless Lovers 6pm-8pm

We will have a Photo Booth onsite for the event so you can take home a FREE commemorative photo.

As we go into our third year, we just want to say "THANK YOU!" Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support what we do at 4th Tap. We truly appreciate every time you enjoy a pint in our taproom, open a can in your home, and tap a keg at your business. You allow us to do what we love EVERY SINGLE DAY. We can't thank you enough...but we can throw a damn good party.

House Release: Island Baby

  • Black Star Co-op Pub & Brewery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

After a couple of months of aging, it is now time to set our little Island Baby free. 
This beer was born out of inspiration from a tiki drink and has finally come to fruition in this tropical, complex cocktail of a beer. 

Island Baby is the first release in our tiki inspired beer series. 
We took a malt forwad, 9% ABV base beer and then aged in St. Croix rum barrels for 7 weeks allowing all of the molasses, oak and caramel flavors to be imparted. We then re-fermented this base beer with pineapple, passionfruit and pomegranate juice to give it a ton of fruity tropical notes with a slight acidity to balance it out. 
Enjoy a glass of this beer and instantly be transported to your favorite island wearning cheap sunglasses, open toed shoes and way too little sun screen. 

9.1% ABV 22 IBU
