Look up to the Texas night sky and witness a subtle blur. No, you haven’t had one pint too many, those are Tadarida brasiliensis, Mexican free-tailed bats, in action. The estimated 100-million free-tails living in Central Texas caves consume approximately 1,000 tons of insects each night, and are a vital part of our ecosystem and agriculture. This beer is a part of the United Nation’s year-long celebration of our miniature furry friends, as 2012 is the the Year of the Bat. Our ale features, beets, oranges, and rosewater - ingredients that wouldn’t be possible without the insatiable, insectiverous efforts of bats. $5 from each bottle sold will go to Bat Conservation International, learn more at www.batcon.org.
