We regret to inform our loyal Beer Runners that our home for the last few years, Uncle Billy's on Barton Springs Road, has now closed. Our Wednesday runs will be postponed temporarily as a result.
We greatly appreciate Uncle Billy's, its management and staff. They've been truly a great host and we've become what we are in large part due to their hospitality and support. An extra BIG thank you to Rick, Richard, Zak, Mike and Sam especially!
Now what? We are in final talks with a new permanent home for the Austin Beer Run Club. We can't wait to share the news with you once it's finalized, which won't be long, we promise. We'll be looking to get started back up early next year. Believe us, it'll be worth the wait. This place will blow your mind!
A brief history: The Austin Beer Run Club started in 2012 at Doc's Backyard on South Congress (which is now condos) with just a handful of friends hanging out, running and having some $2 beers/$1 tacos. We put it on Meetup one day and gained 100 members quicker than any other Meetup in its history! We moved to Uncle Billy's a year or two later and things quickly snowballed. We consistently had over 100 members out every Wednesday. We've since been a featured spread in Runner's World magazine, been in a global advertising campaign, been in the Austin Monthly, the Statesman, Austin Fit Magazine (best of 2015), on TV, the radio, etc., etc. Newcomers to town have found their clique, long-term friendships have formed, romances have blossomed, casual runners have become elite runners, casual beer drinkers have become... well, you get the gist.
A lot of this success is due in large part to Uncle Billy's. We are extremely grateful. THANK YOU!
But, just wait! Things are about to get amp'd up... VERY SOON!
So, enjoy your holidays, try some tasty beers, keep running and we'll be back before you know it... BETTER THAN EVER!
AUSTIN BEER RUN CLUB 3.0 IS COMING!
We'll keep you posted. Stay tuned to our Meetup page, our website (https://www.austinbeerrun.club/) and our social media channels for regular updates.
