Central District Brewing Presents Grand Opening Celebration with a Beer Release Party on May 18 and 19

In addition to the house-made beer releases, the two day event will feature live music, food, and special grand opening merchandise

Central District Brewing, the small batch brewery located in the central business district of Austin, Texas, will host its grand opening celebration on Saturday, May 18, from 11 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday, May 19, from noon to 8 p.m. The two day event will commemorate the official opening of the local brewery with a day of entertainment, Batch kolaches, live music, special opening merchandise, and the release of four new beers: Belgian Wit, Belgian Pale Ale, French Saison and Ultra Limited Hazy IPA. The event will be free to attend. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. Those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP before the event at facebook.com/events/287746205468047/.

“We’re thrilled to finally begin serving our own beers,” said Julie Ballato, co-owner of Central District Brewing. “It’s been a long time coming with some setbacks along the way but we’re here. The community has been ultra supportive and understanding so we’re excited to hear from them. Additionally, the delay has really allowed us to showcase some of our favorite beers around town.”

The brewery will continue to serve rotating options from local breweries who don’t often distribute their beers or have a very small footprint in the marketplace, including Brewtorium, Lazarus Brewing, and Roughhouse Brewing. Central District Brewing will unveil four house-made beers during the grand opening event, including its Belgian Wit,  Belgian Pale Ale,  French Saison, and Ultra Limited Hazy IPA.

Co-owner and Master Brewer Adam Duley has homebrewed for many years; he received his master’s in brewing and completed a six-week apprenticeship at the Lost Abbey and Port Brewing in California. Central District Brewing’s small brewhouse allows for Duley to produce approachable pillar beers, seasonals, and experimental beers.

Central District Brewing is located at 417 Red River St. Austin, Texas 78701. The brewery is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday to Thursday, 2 p.m. to midnight on Friday, 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Central District Brewing opened on Red River Street, just a block from the Austin Convention Center, in March 2019. Helmed by husband-and-wife duo Adam and Angela Duley and Joe and Julie Ballato, the small-batch brewery focuses on seasonal and small-batch beers developed by Adam, the Master Brewer of Central District Brewing. The brewery began producing a roster of rotating house options in May 2019. In addition to beer, Central District Brewing offers food from Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches. The 1,500 square foot space features a post-industrial modern setting with copper accents and live ferns.
