Weekend Watering Hole Update- Aug 14-16


So it seems I forgot to post this blog yesterday.  Maybe I just started drinking at 1pm and lost track of time.....Maybe I had a shit week at work and checked out....maybe it's my kids birthday weekend......maybe i have way too many excuses....or maybe I just forgot to hit the "publish blog" button like a dumbass!

Anyway lots of positive updates this week.  More and more onsite openings of beer gardens, live music is making it's return to our favorite hill country tap rooms and distilleries.  Things are all heading in the right direction.  Fingers crossed it continues.

We are also working on a neighborhood garage crawl concept for labor day weekend.  More details on that this week.  Headwaters is already on board, now we need to see if Belterra, High Pointe, Howard Ranch, Sunset Canyon, etc are interested in stepping up to support our local breweries and kick off Labor Day weekend with a bang.  Stay tuned this week for details, but first this weeks round up:
