As some of you may know we are attempting to have RBWG in
Austin this time around. I am recruiting the knowledge of the Austin crowd to help out with this. Looking for tips and info for the following:

Grand tasting location
Hotel (should be within walking distance from grand tasting)
Possibly any local bus or shuttle services

Yes I know google is a good place to start, but looking for those that have knowledge and input.

The bus/shuttle would be for one day and would provide a trip to freetail, ranger creek, 512, and Jester King. Of course that is dependent on the breweries agreeing to the visit. Any info is much appreciated.

Walt, I will also send some suggestions to you for your input and to see if you can work something out with the breweries for a special visit.

I have a hotel near me in Round Rock but the only beer place near would be my two places which are next door to each other and half a block from a hotel. I could probably get them to give us the conference room there. But again, itís round rock so everything except my places is a bit far.

Hey guys. You may wanít to give nbutler11 (Nick) a shout. He may not be able to help with the beer stops in your area, but he did a great job planning the last RBWG in Phoenix. Wouldnít hurt to ask him for some pointers. Hopefully a few of us from AZ can carpool over for the event. Good luck.

I would love to have planned this for Austin, but my schedule is absolutely berserk. Iíll try to give a hand if I can.



As far as bus/train service, itís not bad, but the train only runs Mon-Fri, no weekend service. A Friday late afternoon train/bus brewery tour could be possible this way-



Friday afternoon- leave at 3:45 from downtown

Arrive at Crestview station at 4:05 (Black Star Co-op)

Depart Crestview at 5:50, arrive at Kramer Station at 5:57 (Circle Brewery is within walking distance from the station, but I have no idea if they would open up for this)

Walk to the corner of Braker/Burnet (.4 miles), catch #3 bus at 8:00, arrive at Draught House at 8:30.

Leave Draught House at 10:00 via bus system.

Are there any charters available for a saturday? I wish that I was more familiar with the area.

If anyone wants to put me on a task, feel free. I live in north Austin (so Iím not super familiar with our crappy bus lines), but I can make calls to hotels, or something...
