Austin Beerworks had the best sign at the festival.
Yeah, those are skittles.
It’s the main reason why I tried their beer. I’m a sucker for unicorns. The beer that I tried, however, was just okay. It was a dark beer, but not as heavy as I expected from a name like “Black Thunder”. It’s a German Schwarz, which apparently just means it’s a German dark lager. They described it as, “If a stout and a pilsner had a lovechild.”
I drank about half of it, got bored, tossed it, and went to the next booth. It was not very memorable. (It probably didn’t help that I tried it towards the end of the festival…) It wasn’t undrinkable by any means, but it certainly wasn’t that great. So, basically what I’m saying is I tried their beer, it was okay, and the only thing I remember being excited about was the sign.
