Austin's Best Food and Drink 1

LAZARUS GETS LICKED We can barely count all the local craft-beer venues ’round these here parts nowadays (although check this out), but we reckon there’s only one – Lazarus Brewing Company on East Sixth – that’s got the Barb scoop truck from Lick Honest Ice Creams parked at its venue all summer long.

The Lick crew will be there from noon ’til at least 9 pm every day but Tuesday, dishing up a flotilla of new flavors (we’re especially gaga over that blackberry, lime, and basil concoction) to accompany all those lovely Lazarus brews.

TEJAS SESSIONS: SUMMER SOLSTICE PARTY Ah, you’d think we were transported to Summerisle. Manor Road’s beloved bastion of bready and brew-forward goodness joins up with KOOP Radio and Aural Canyon to throw a party on the actual damned solstice, tyvm, with the release of new beers from the Batch Brewhouse, an Austintatious art market, and a fine slate of live music a-rockin’ into the night. Fri., June 21, 6-11 pm.
