The New Beers of East Austin
Today, Friends & Allies Brewing debut to the city of Austin with a soft opening welcoming beer lovers from all over the city for a drink and meet. Located at 979 Springdale Road (off Airport Blvd) the new brewery will be open until 9pm today.
Ben Sabin and co-owner Devon Ponds planned to open the tasting room back in November of 2016 with previously releasing their session IPA called Noisy Cricket which eventually hit bars all over Texas. Soon after, released was Urban Chicken, which turned out to be one of my favorite Saison’s in the city. With no opening to close out 2016 with a bang; they re-planned for a opening date in January 2017 but was ultimately delayed until now.
The new tasting room will feature and indoor and outdoor patio and they’re launching with four core beers including Springdale White Ale and an IPA .
