It's exactly what it sounds like - we drink good beer, sing the old-timey gospel hymns... AND raise money for charity. There will be no preaching or proselytizing, just a spirited sing-along with your friends and neighbors. Whether you sing the hymnal every week or just want to relive the nostalgia of your youth, all are welcome. Join us for our Spring event at the St Elmo Brewing Company in south Austin!
As always, we will be raising money for good causes here in Austin. Half of the total proceeds this month will go to Manos de Cristo (http://manosdecristo.org/), a wonderful organization that has been providing basic needs and and services to low-income families in Austin for thirty years. The other half will support organizing efforts for the New Story Festival (www.newstoryfestival.com), an innovative gathering for creativity, spirituality, and social action, coming to Austin this November. You can give your suggested $10 donation in cash at the door or ahead of time by credit card on our Eventbrite page. Donations are optional of course, so come and sing even if you can't afford to give.
This isn't about the beer, it's about the experience, so if alcohol isn't for you, feel free to order water or soda instead. And please arrange a safe ride home if you will be drinking.
Also, be sure to "Like" the Austin Beer and Hymns page to find out about all of our upcoming events!
