What we're about

A very casual group of Austin women who get together to drink & discuss great craft beer, and just have a really fun time making girlfriends! Established in September 2014, we meet 3-4 times a month at various bars & breweries around Austin. Sometimes we just giggle over beers, sometimes we learn from women in the beer industry, & many times we get great discounts and cool behind the scenes tours! --- Beer culture is often very male-centric, so I wanted to give beer-loving women (drinkers, brewers, bartenders) an opportunity to meet other beer-loving women & share some good brews and stories in the process. ---- Join the Facebook group for updates on local beer events! And it's shared with our BN-Chicago & BN-Seattle sisters so Chi-town beer adventuring advice is available too! https://www.facebook.com/groups/beernecessities/

Let's Get a Cider at Fairweather Cider Company

Fairweather Cider Co.

I know, I know what is a beer group doing going out for cider? Expanding our palette! Fairweather has been in business since November 2017, so still fairly new to the Austin scene. They specialize in dry cider, many of which (specifically the core ciders that are in cans in the market) have 0 grams of residual sugar - which is fantastic! They currently have 10 ciders that are constantly rotating on draft, ranging from dry hopped cider, to Anaheim green chile infused, and fruit infused. Outside of cider, they have a natural wine program that they just recently introduced in the taproom by way of wine flights, or, by the glass/bottle. The newest product they’ve put into the market is called PET NAT, a naturally sparkling cider - this is something they are really excited about and will definitely discuss during the tour we will get with one of the owners. The cidery is offering $5.00 a pint for any cider in the taproom to the ladies of Beer Necessities.
