Silverback Pale Ale Trail

The Silverback Pale Ale is a beer brewed by Thirsty Planet Brewing Company specifically for the Austin Gorilla Run and provides proceeds for the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. That’s right, drink beer, run a 5k, save gorillas (maybe not in that order).

Join us for the annual Gorilla Pub Crawl Saturday, January 23rd! This year we are moving the crawl to West 6th Street in downtown Austin and will be traveling to Key Bar, J. Blacks, Brew Exchange, Star Bar, Little Woodrows, and Dirty Bills. Suit up in your gorilla suit (if you have one from a previous year), meet at Key Bar @4 pm, and get a gorilla stamp card. Troops of gorillas will be lead into the wild around 5 pm and receive a stamp at each bar on the crawl. Bring your completed stamp card back to Key Bar to receive an official Gorilla Pub Crawl t-shirt!

A big thanks to our host bars who will be pouring our Silverback Pale Ale in support of the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund. Silverback is brewed by Thirsty Planet Brewing Company to directly benefit the endangered Mountain Gorillas with the majority of the proceeds going back to the cause.

*The Gorilla Pub Crawl is open to the public and consuming alcoholic beverages is not required to participate or to complete a stamp card.
