Whisler’s Hosts a Special Brewers, Butchers & Bartenders Industry Night Featuring Salt & Time Plus a Firkin of ESB from Independence Brewing Co.
Festivities Held the First Sunday of Every Month
Whisler’s, the acclaimed new bar in East Austin, will host a special Brewers, Butchers & Bartenders Service Industry Night this Sunday, December 15th starting at 6pm. Bar owner Scranton Twohey launched what is usually a first Sunday of the month celebration in November to welcome fellow members of Austin’s hospitality industry. However, Service Industry Night welcomes all industry members’ friends and family to enjoy an evening that includes special drink pricing and guest hosts such as East Austin neighbors, Salt & Time. In addition to a hearty chili and cornbread served by Salt & Time, the Dec. 15th event features a firkin of ESB (Extra Special Bitter) from friends at Independence Brewing Co.
To add more holiday cheer to the December gathering, Austin’s Independence Brewing Co. will serve their seasonal ESB (Extra Special Bitter) for $5 a pint from a Firkin. ESB was formulated to be true to the traditional English style and served from a Firkin, a small wooden barrel or cask. The term “firkin” is an old English unit of volume equal to around ¼ of a barrel. While the name suggests something very bitter, the beer has bready and toasty caramel malt flavors that balance earthy English hops. The beer will pair well with a hearty chili of wild boar, elk, goat, beef and pork prepared by Salt & Time Butcher Shop and Sulmeria. Chili and cornbread are $5 per bowl.
Whisler’s Service Industry happy hour menu regularly features eight classic cocktail drinks including an Old-Fashioned, Moscow Mule, Bee’s Knees and five other unique drinks for $6. The happy hour menu also includes Goose Island beer for $5 per bottle.
