South By Southwest at Your Favorite Co-op Brewpub

The bluebonnets are in bloom, the days are warm, and we welcome thousands of visitors to our city. Locals are always divided on their feelings about the throng of visitors brought by SXSW. Whether you love the events or try to avoid the most active parts of town, Black Star Co-op has something for everyone. 

We’re far away enough from downtown, but still on the train line, meaning we’re a perfect place to stop for a much-needed break, a beer or a bite to eat on your way to or from an event. Most importantly, you won’t have to wait in a line 100 people deep and to use a bathroom encased in plastic.

The trains are running late and so are we! Yes, our kitchen is staying open until midnight during the two weekends of SXSW. That’s right, on March 11-12 and 18-19, you can enjoy a late night at the Co-op. Stay tuned for more information on our extended SX hours.

As always, we have some awesome events and special releases especially for SXSW:

  • 3/15 House Release – Pneuma
    One of my favorite beers of all time returns! This West Coast inspired pale ale is brewed with Cascade, Citra, and Galaxy hops.
  • 3/17 St. Patrick’s Day
    Join us for corned beef and cabbage paired with a delicious Irish Stout. We’ll have a bottle of green food coloring if you absolutely must have a green beer. 
  • 3/19 Crawfish Boil
    We’ve got a boatload of gulf crawfish. Grab a 2lb plate for $12 and join us on the newly renovated patio with a few kegs of our favorite beers. 

To better serve our customers, we’ll have a specially streamlined SXSW menu featuring all our favorite items. This means shorter lines and less wait time so you can catch that secret warehouse gig. 

So whether you’re headed into the fray or staying far away, Black Star should be on your mind. If nothing else, we should reiterate that we’ll definitely have fully functioning bathrooms with no lines to contend with. What more could you want?
