Exclusives

Pilot

This is our drink-u-bator. Our playground. Our sex machine. It’s a 7-barrel pilot system where we can experiment without having to brew a whole 90-barrel batch. And everyone in the brewery gets a crack at making a beer on it. They just have to research the style and craft a recipe. This has led to some incredible and incredibly-limited beers. So come by if you want something you can’t get anywhere else and you get to see how bad our puns get.

Barrel

Call a sitter. Fake a seizure. Play your get out of jail free card. Just do what you have to do to be here when there's a new barrel release. Whether its a wine barrel-aged sour ale or bourbon barrel Sputnik, these are special moments at ABW because of the time it takes to make these beers. For months – even years – the wood and wild things have been getting all intimate with our beer in the darkness of the barrels. And then the day comes when they meet the world. That’s the day you want to be here.

Core 4 Beers

About Core 4

We brew what we like to drink.

That’s what inspired us to brew our Core Four beers year round. Sure some of our styles take a little longer to brew but, like a good brisket, it’s all worth it. So now, no matter what the situation – from fancy wedding to ill-advised shotgun challenge – there is a can for every occasion. Each one is a crisp, clean example of the style. Each is brewed so you can have more than one in a session. And every single sip is as bold and clean as the first. It’s all about having a strong core.

Anytime Ale

Peacemaker

5.0%

ABV

More Info

Peacemaker was the very first beer we decided to brew. It’s balanced, refreshing, and very sessionable. Peacemaker is simple, but we take it very seriously — a bold and clean beer with nothing to hide behind. It's the beer we drink the most at the brewery. And at home. And on the river. When you have a cold, bright, well-balanced beer like Peacemaker on hand, anytime is a good time to enjoy it.

Hoppy Pale Ale

Flavor Country

5.9%

ABV

More Info

When we began in 2011 it was impossible to brew this Hoppy Pale Ale. The ingredients weren’t available and the science didn’t exist. Oil rich lupulin powder was just a dream. It brings intense flavor but doesn’t linger, drinks like a hop forward pale ale but doesn’t blow you up and every sip leaves you craving more. It’s so special we had to invent a whole new country to explain it. Welcome.

ABV

More Info

Flavor swoops in (cue EAGLE SCREAM), grabs you by the face and flies you through the hop rainbow. At the peak of the ride it swoops back to earth and gently drops you back on your bar stool where you are refreshed, excited and ready to ride again. It’s hoppy, bold and American.

Heavy Machinery

About HM

This is our chance to shake off the gloves and go big. Big IPAs. Big cans. Big warning. Everything about this series is serious. So much in fact we’ve locked in our Pacific Northwest hop suppliers for years in advance. It’s the only way to guarantee the sweet stink of those Simcoe, Centennial and Citra hops. We designed the series to release a new batch every season with a can it takes all season to read.

IPA you missed it

Wet Hop

7.0%

ABV

More Info

Easily, the most special brew in the series because this can only happen once a year. Last year it was a Thursday. On the day our farmer in Oregon harvests the Centennial hops we start brewing. He boxes them up, kisses the label and ships them via Southwest Airlines Cargo (faster than FedEx). So within 12 hours of being picked it’s dropped into the kettle. That’s a wet hop. It’s the greenest, brightest, extra juiciest flavor that you can’t duplicate any other way. The sooner you drink it, the fresher the flavor. Don’t cherish this one – drink up!

About SNLs

Who knew Austin had so many seasons? Spring. Jeez Spring is Hot. Summer. Second Summer. Kill Me Summer. Isn’t It Fall Yet? Almost Winter. Wait, Was That Winter? Spring. Hot Spring.

This is a super traditional fest beer that features all German malts, hops and yeasts. The only thing American is the water. This is what an Oktoberfest should be. It’s a must have during the Fall festival season. Don’t miss it before it disappears in a puff of smoke.

Helles Lager

Super Awesome

4.5%

ABV

More Info

Right on the hooves of Einhorn comes this super clean, super easy to drink, super sessionable, super hard to make lager. It takes us 8 weeks to ferment this special beer because there is absolutely nothing to hide behind. While most Germans would tell you Helles means light or bright – we know the true translation is “Hell! Those bearded Americans just out-brewed us!”

Bloodwork Orange

7.0%

ABV

More Info

As part of our ABW Pilot Program, every Beerworker gets the chance to pilot our private bi-plane. Whaaat? No. We have robots for that. Actually they get to make their own beer on our seven-barrel pilot system. That’s how Bloodwork began - with Nick Pratt and a citrusy dream. It was only available in our taproom but was in such high demand it has become our first year-round seasonal. It’s the Sicilain blood oranges added during fermentation that make this a citric symphony of the senses.

More Info

What do you get when you combine German and Mexican cultures? It’s not just a love of accordion solos. Using Uberpremium German pilsner malt and a touch of Muchopremium corn for character we brew this light Mexican-style lager as a celebration of our Texas Hill Country cultures. Light, sessionable and ready to party, it’s liquid Tejano in a very cool can.
