A new brewery in Austin is frequently heralded by the skies parting, revealing trumpet-blaring unicorns and heavy rains of confetti and tacos. This is shortly followed by much speculation, TABC heartbreak, and an opening at least six months later than planned. Such is not the case for Strange Land. After four relatively quiet years of work, Strange Land is now a fully operational brewery on the west side of town. What they seem to lack in the usual media hype, they more than make up for where it counts: exceptional beer, right out of the gates. On February 25th, we'll have the creators themselves here to celebrate and share their stories and libations.
