First Annual Mo Stash Bash

Come celebrate the glorious hirsute facial accoutrement that is the mustache at the first annual Mo Stash Bash. Not only will the cost of entry ($5) snag you free Maker’s Mark bourbon, but you will also be helping raise cash money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Let’s help our boys take care of their boys and have some drinks while we are at it!

Mo Stash Bash
Monday, Movember 30th, 7PM
The Independent at 501 Studios

An informed perspective

If you have the time, be sure to check out David Hanson's wonderful site, Alcohol: Problems and Solutions, especially the wonderful article The Legal Drinking Age:Science vs. Ideology. Here is a choice quote from Dr. Hanson:

"People become responsible by being properly taught, given responsibility, and then held accountable for their actions. We don't tell young people to "just say no" to driving, fail to teach them to drive, and then on their 18th birthday give them drivers licenses and turn them loose on the road. But this is the logic we follow for beverage alcohol because neo-prohibitionism underlies our alcohol policy."

Here here! The doctor is in, and he recommends a prescription of logic and responsibility.
I'll drink to that.

Yuri's Night in Austin

Independence Brewery Tour

Our visit to the Independence Brewery in South Austin was a success. It was much more crowded and sunny then we had anticipated, but we had a lot of fun tasting beer and conversatin'. My favorite part was the plethora of dogs running around. The brew was tasty, I liked the Pale Ale the best. We all had a great time and then visited the nearby Catfish Parlor for deep fried goodness. I do believe the Austin Imbiber's Society will be back to visit the Independence Brewery again.
Here is their website:

The Tipsy Texan

AIS member Dee submitted this blog for our all important society's review.

I dug around in the older articles and found:

Tipsy Texans LIVE at Z'Tejas

Tonight we will be serving up classic and modern cocktails at Z'Bar, next door to Z'Tejas on 6th St. The Art of the Cocktail runs from 5-9p every Sunday. Great cocktails and half-price appetizers to ease you back into the week...

I propose we have an outing one sunday night and mosey on down to check it out.

Here is a recipe from The Tipsy Texan using Paula's Texas Orange some of us may have sampled at our inaugural meeting.

Manchaca Cocktail
1 ½ oz Flor de CaƱa 4yr
¾ oz Paula's Texas Orange
½ oz fresh lime juice
½ simple syrup
Combine ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake vigorously; strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
