Taste Testing at Skinny Bob’s

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Wow, Friday came fast this week! It probably had a lot to do with the three day Memorial Day weekend we all enjoyed. Who’s complaining about a short “work” week though…not us and hopefully not you either!

So check it out, tonight at 6:30 PM (just less than 4-hours away) we’ll be hanging with the good folks at Skinny Bob’s Billiards in Round Rock for a taste testing of our three most popular brews: the Yellow Armadillo Wheat, the Thirsty Goat Amber, & the Buckethead IPA!

Looking forward to seeing you out tonight!

Cheers!

Sausage, Live Music, and Beer

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

It was so hard to come up with a title for this post. What’s better and which gets listed first…beer, live music, or sausage? We think all three are equally special and oddly enough we aren’t biased toward beer because we believe what makes beer really special is the event, the food, and of course the people it’s paired and enjoyed with. So how did we come up with the post? The scientific method of course…we threw all three names in a hat and drew them out in the order they are now listed in: Sausage, Live Music, and Beer.

We are so excited about this upcoming Saturday, March 5th at the brewery. Our weekend brewery tours and tastings are already the highlight of our week. We aren’t kidding friends; that’s when all of our hard work really pays off. It’s the one time each week that we have the opportunity to get to know each of you, show you our brewery home, and serve you our beers.

Beyond the normal good times we share with each of you on Saturdays, this Saturday is going to be especially fun as we are hosting the good folks from Salt & Time and our band of the month Achachay!

Salt & Time will serve up a one of a kind sausage infused with our Buckethead IPA and a specialty mustard made with our Thirsty Goat Amber Ale. This is all part of Salt & Time’s brilliant plan to launch Craft Beer Link. Each month, Salt & Time will pair beer from a Texas craft brewery with their sausages and mustards. We at Thirsty Planet have the honor of being the first of the six Texas craft breweries selected thus far to kick this off!

In addition to the amazing sausages that Salt & Time will serve, our Band of the Month, Achachay! will bring the groove to you on the dance floor. Their music causes a real ruckus and will leave you music lovers demanding more!

Don’t miss out, reserve your spot now for this Saturday’s mouth watering and ear pleasing event by signing up online for one of our brewery tours and tastings.

Tour and tasting price will be the usual $7, which buys you a Thirsty Planet pint glass that we’ll happily keep filled for FREE with our many Thirsty Planet brews on tap. The sausage links from Salt & Time can be purchased on site for $7, or take a package of links home for $8; cash or credit accepted. While the brews and links are being served up Achachay! will put on one rocking show at no cost to you; tips for the band are encouraged and appreciated.

So please join us this Saturday from 10AM – 3PM with Achachay! rocking out live music from 11AM – 2PM.

Hope to see you this Saturday! Cheers!

Salt & Time Announces Craft Beer Link of the Month Featuring Texas’ Best Craft Breweries

Austin’s local food community is in the midst of explosive growth, with artisan butchers and craft brewers helping lead the way. Salt & Time is celebrating this by partnering with Texas’ best craft brewers to make a Craft Beer Link of the Month. Starting in March, each month Salt & Time will feature a local brewery’s beer as a featured ingredient in a sausage and an accompanying mustard. Austinites will be able to get these sausages hot off the grill or packed up to take home at the HOPE Farmers Market (414 Waller St, from 11 to 3 on Sundays). as well as at special events at the breweries. The first six breweries to be featured are Real Ale, Live Oak, Jester King, Hops & Grain, Southern Star and Thirsty Planet.

On Satuday, March 5th from 11-2, Salt & Time will bring our grill to Thirsty Planet Brewery (11160 Circle Drive, Austin, Texas 78736) to kick off this most excellent pairing of beer and sausage. We will feature their Buckethead IPA in our sausage and Thirsty Goat Amber Ale in our mustard throughout the Month of March.

The schedule of upcoming breweries and events will be announced at www.saltandtime.com in the coming weeks.

Our Porter Needs a Name

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Yesterday we served up our first porter batch at the brewery. We are really enjoying it and the reaction we received from all of you who tried it was overwhelming positive and beneficial to us. It’s through your feedback that we are able to tweak and perfect our brewing recipes to best satisfy your taste buds.

That is one of the things we enjoy most about craft brewing; especially here in Austin. We are part of the community and we could not have enjoyed the success we are having if it were not for your support and valuable feedback.

So we are calling on you, our Thirsty Planet fans, for additional feedback about our new porter.

In addition to creating the best possible recipe, we are asking for your help in naming this new brew that will soon be part of the Thirsty Planet line-up.

On tap today we have the Yellow Armadillo Wheat, the Thirsty Goat Amber, and the Buckethead IPA. What name for our new porter do you think best compliments our existing line-up?

Bring it on Austin and Thirsty Planet fans from around the globe; let your creative juices flow and share your porter naming ideas with us.

Cheers!
