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).

2017 Gorilla Pub Crawl

Gorillas here, gorillas there, gorillas EVERYWHERE!

Gorillas will be returning to Rainey Street January 21st for the Annual Gorilla Pub Crawl! Suit up in your gorilla or banana costume and meet at Bangers at 4 pm to grab a pub crawl stamp card. Participants will be lead into the wild around 5 pm and receive a stamp at each bar on the crawl. Official pub crawl stops with Silverback Pale Ale a flowin’ will be Bangers (home base), Craft Pride, Javelina, CLIVE, Parlor Room, and Bar 96.

Pub crawl bars have politely asked us all to, PLEASE PAY IN CASH! It speeds up the lines and helps you get a beverage faster. Also, please be respectful and drink responsibly. Our host bars have a right to refuse service if a gorilla appears to be over-served.

Drinking is not required to complete a stamp card and this event is open to the public. A completed card is to be brought back to the gorilla station at Bangers before 9 pm to receive a FREE 2017 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.
