4th Tap Summer Slam

Thursday, THURsday, THURSDAY

Summer is upon us and so is an epic Tap Takeover with our good friends at 4th Tap Brewing Co-op. A few Party World Rasslin' wrestlers will be stopping by for a beer or two, so be prepared for things to get a little weird! The 4th Tap crew will also be bringing out some limited release offerings to share with you, including an exclusive one-off called Mate Night Raw, a saison brewed with Yerba Mate and spices!

We'll also be pouring the following:

Paradise Lost - Guava IPA
ABV: 6.5%
Solitude sometimes is best society...but at least take this beer with you. We added over 400 pounds of guava puree to an already very hoppy beer, liberally dosed with Bravo, Mosaic, and Cascade. The result is an incredibly refreshing and juicy beer with a clean hoppy finish and long-lingering guava notes.

Long Walk - Grapefruit IPA (Hooked up to a Hop Rocket with something special)
ABV: 6.5
A grapefruit-infused IPA packing one hell of a citrus punch. Classic Columbus/Cascade hops balanced with toasty Munich and Crystal malts provide a base for painstakingly-prepared Ruby Red Texas grapefruit.


Renewal - Sour Wheat
ABV: 5.5%
Style: sour wheat
Our crisp wheat beer brewed with tart tamarind fruit creates a pleasing and distinct finish. Renewal appeals to those searching for that subtle balance between sour and refreshing to combat Texas heat. Specifically formulated to meet all your river-floating and porch-drinking need!


Lawgiver - Chocolate Russian Imperial Stout (nitro)
ABV: 9%
Any time of year is perfect for a big, roasty, chocolate-spiked nitro stout. A traditional malt base full of complex coffee, toffee, and chocolate notes balance out this beer's intrinsic roastiness. Adding to the mix is a glut of rich cacao added during fermentation for maximum effect. This beer is to be enjoyed dispensed with nitrogen in order to accentuate its already creamy mouthfeel and texture.

Hop Flight Night / New IPA Release

We brewed an IPA base beer with only bittering hops and then dry hopped 4 separate kegs with Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe and El Dorado, respectively. This event was designed, with the hop heads in mind, to allow you to get the true experience of one particular variety of hop and how it contributes flavor to the same base beer. While this is not a true SMASH beer(single malt and single hop), it serves a similar purpose, with the focus being on the dry hop addition. We will be releasing all 4 of these kegs on August 8th and will serve flights of all 4 as a side by side comparison. That same night we will be releasing our IPA with a completely new dry hopping schedule, including our first time use of Simcoe lupulin powder.

Puro Chingón Collective

The Puro Chingón Collective is a Latino art trifecta specializing in happenings, the activation of nontraditional spaces, designer toys, and art zines. Collective members are three Austin, Latino artists: Claudia Aparicio-Gamundi, James Huizar, and Claudia Zapata. In 2012, the Collective formed after their initial creation of ChingoZine, a Latino arts publication. ChingoZine is part of the Barnard Zine Library Collection, Pratt Institute Libraries, and Texas A&M University Zine Collection among several other libraries and research centers. In 2013, the Collective initiated The Puro Chingón Social Club, a monthly Latino–themed cinema program presented at the North Door in Austin, Texas. For previous programs, the Puro Chingón Collective conducted interactive film viewings of movies such as Mi Vida Loca, Y Tú Mama Tambien, and Selena. Audience members received props that coincided with key scenes in the film, allowing viewers to augment their experience in a whimsical fashion reminiscent of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. In 2014, the Collective designed the Pachanga Latino Music Festival and debuted their designer toy line, Chingolandia. Their designer toys are currently part of the permanent collection of the Mexic-Arte Museum and sold at Guzu Gallery in Austin, Texas. The Collective has worked with Birds Barbershop, Fusebox Festival, Trans-Pecos Festival, Creative Action, and Juiceland. The Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection currently houses their official archives.

What is ChingoZine?

ChingoZine is a zine featuring the original artwork and design of Latino artists published by the Puro Chingón Collective. In Spanish “Chingo” is a slang term for “lots of” or a “plethora of”. Zine is an abbreviated form of “magazine” and is typically a low-cost publication distributed to members of alternative, counter, and subcultures. Typically, the readership of zines consists of loyal and prideful readers that interpret the owning of a zine as a significant relationship with the creators and the contents which comprise the zine. Through a zine format, ChingoZine aims to create an accessible and affordable art publication that will be circulated in print. ChingoZine co-founders are Texas-based artists and designers Mark Aguilar, James Huizar, Claudia Aparicio-Gamundi, and Claudia Zapata (editor of ChingoZine).

ChingoZine in Bookstores, Libraries, and Special Collections

ChingoZine is available for purchase online via the Puro Chingón Collective Big cartel online (purochingoncollective.com) shop and is now available for sale at the Blanton Museum of Art (Austin), MonkeyWrench Books (Austin), BookWoman (Austin), Resistencia Books (Austin), Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin), Farewell Books (Austin), Printed Matter (New York), Pilsen Outpost (Chicago), Seite Books (Los Angeles). ChingoZine copies are currently in the archives and collections at the Museum of Modern Art Library (New York), London College of Communication Collections and Archives (London) Austin History Center (Austin), Austin Public Library (Austin), Texas A&M Zine Library Collection (College Station), the Nettie Lee Benson Library (Austin), the Pratt Institute Libraries (Brooklyn), University of Texas at San Antonio Special Collections (San Antonio), the Barnard Zine Library Collection (New York), Michigan State University (Lansing),Bibliothek des Ibero-Amerikanischen Instituts PreuBischer Kulturebesitz (Berlin),St. Louis Library (St. Louis),and TIJUANA (São Paulo) for preservation, archive, and circulation. This project has generated international followers and we would like to continue presenting Latino art and design in the zine format.

Dredd Beer Dinner with 4th Tap Brewing

Join us for an epic night of the DREDD Beer Dinner hosted with our friends at 4th Tap Brewing! Our chefs have created a decadent film-inspired three course dinner paired with four amazing beer selections from 4th Tap Brewing.

The future America is an irradiated wasteland. On its East Coast lies Mega City One - a vast violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called "Judges" who possess the combined powers of judge, jury, and instant executioner. The ultimate Judge, Dredd (Karl Urban), is tasked with ridding the city of its latest scourge - a dangerous drug and the sadistic prostitute turned drug pusher who is using it to take over the city.
