Austin Beerworks’ four co-founders believe that “beer brings people together”. To this end, they established Austin Beerworks so “people (will) have a better time”. Austin Beerworks beers are only sold within about 50 miles of Austin, but the brewery is gaining national recognition. They recently made Forbes 11 Best Beers list in 2018. The brand started with their first release in April 2011. Initially raising the eyebrows of craft beer fans by having them distributed in bold, attractive cans, it went from a startup to “growing by over 180% each year”. Today, they have “core four” beers – Peacemaker, Pearl-Snap, Flavor Country, and Fire Eagle. In addition, they have a rotating set of seasonal beers, and the Heavy Machinery seasonal IPA series. They also lay claim to a world’s first – the 99-pack – a marketing gimmick to promote their Peacemaker “Anytime Ale”. In 2016, Austin Chronicle dubbed them “the new official beer of Austin”. In 2017, they expanded to a 15,000+ square foot warehouse next door to the brewery.
