Firkin Friday with Real Ale
Friday, November 1st
5:00 PM
the Buzz Bar, pay per drink

Thank goodness its Firkin Friday!  A firkin (besides being a funny Dutch word) is a specific sized small barrel beer that has been cask-conditioned, meaning the beer has fermented naturally by it's resident yeast and it has not been processed in any way.  You be the judge and taste the difference at our special cask tapping!  Remember, this is a small barrel so supplies are limited--come and get some while it lasts!

Community 5% Day: Legacy of Giving
Wednesday, November 13th
12:00 AM
Store-wide

This Wednesday, November 13th support Legacy of Giving, an Austin community non-profit by shopping at Whole Foods Market stores in the area.  Whole Foods Market will donate 5% of net profits for the entire day to Legacy of Giving.  

 

Mission:  “Empowering children through philanthropy education and youth philanthropy programs, to become more engaged in improving their communities and world.” 

 

About the Program: A Legacy of Giving has developed a curriculum taught in K through 12th grade, taught through Academic Assemblies, service events, and reflection lessons developed by Legacy educators.

 

Who Participates: 26 Austin-area schools, 19 of which are Title I Schools. Throughout Central Texas, from kindergarten to high school, public to private schools, children participating in the Legacy program are learning why and how to give.

 

Fun Fact: Children who perform acts of kindness experience increased wellbeing and improved social relationships and acceptance among peers. This, in turn, leads to better classroom behavior and higher academic achievement, according to developmental psychologist Marilyn Price Mitchel.

 

Fun Fact: Since 2006, Legacy of Giving students have collected 13,919 coats and 208,032 pounds of food for Central Texans. Economic status, faith, or age don’t matter: students become philanthropists when their time and talents serve their community.

Gettin' Schooled Dogfish Head Tap Takeover & Fish Fry
Thursday, August 28th
6:00 PM
Domain,

Whole Foods Market Domain and Dogfish Head are throwing down a celebration in honor of Labor Day and Back to School (this one's for you parents)! Come on out Thursday evening to try some of the delicious brews we've been cellaring, including the return of Punkin!! Here are some of the beers we'll be tapping: Palo Santo, Immort Ale (2013), Sah'Tea, Sixty-One, Red & White, Burton Baton, Noble Rot and more. 

 

**AND for all of you beer afficionados...We'll have 60 Minute IPA on a Randall tap!**

 
What is a Randall (aka Randall the Enamel Animal), you ask, and why do brewers use one?
Randall is an organoleptic hop transducer module, a double-chamber filter that you connect to a tap of your favorite beer and fill with flavor-enhancing ingredients. It’s invention credited to Dogfish Head out of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. "Basically, it’s a sophisticated filter system that allows the user to run draft beer through a chamber of whole leaf hops, spices, herbs, fruit, etc. so that the alcohol in the beer strips the flavor from whatever you add and puts it in the beer.” – Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder
 
 

As if that wasn't enough, you won't want to miss out on our fish fry...the batter will be made with Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale. Yum!
