Meanwhile Brewing Co. has one of the largest and most unique outdoor spaces in Texas. When Will Jaquiss, Meanwhile’s founder and brewmaster, was searching for a location in Austin, he wanted to find the biggest space possible.
“We wanted to focus on the taproom experience, first and foremost,” Jaquiss said.
Despite opening within the last year, Meanwhile has been able to offer plenty of customers a beautiful outdoor space in southeast Austin. The 3.7-acre property has a large stage for music, jungle gyms for kids and a soccer field. Although not everything has been usable in the last six months, they have plenty of ideas for the future.
In Episode 38 of the “Boys Are From Märzen” podcast, Kindsey Bernhard converses with Pam Catoe, owner and chief contributor of Craft Beer Austin and Southwest regional editor for PorchDrinking.com.
It seems like so long ago we got together and brewed some beer for the annual Pink Boots Society Collaboration Brew Day. I wanted to publish this article weeks ago, but things were beginning to escalate around the country, and it just didn’t seem like good timing.
Last year, Austin hosted a record number of collaboration brew days, releasing seven collaboration beers in total. For 2020, a full twenty-one breweries signed up to do a collaboration beer, and some of those collaborations have been postponed for a few months. However, several Austin breweries are gearing up to release their collaboration beers, and a few have them available now.
We spoke with Maggie Pace, marketing director at Circle Brewing, Karen Killough, co-founder, Vista Brewing and Libby Brennen, events coordinator at St. Elmo Brewing, about their respective collaborations.
