We invite you to travel back in time at the famous Scholz Beer Garten for our mixer hosted by Quad! Scholz is the oldest restaurant and live music venue in Texas. Established in 1866, they’ve been serving the Austin community for almost a century and a half. Over the years it has grown with the Austin community, from hosting a celebration for the University of Texas football team’s first undefeated season in 1893 to being honored by the 1966 Texas legislature with House Resolution #68, which recognized Scholz Garten as “a gathering place for Texans of discernment, taste, culture, erudition, epitomizing the finest tradition of magnificent German heritage in our State.” Today Scholz Garten remains a favorite spot for UT fans, music lovers, and families to enjoy traditional German food, raise their glasses and say Prost!

Evening Mixer: Still Austin Distillery

Apr 1, 2020 6:30 pm  —  Apr 1, 2020 8:30 pm

Stimulate your senses at Still Austin Distillery for an evening of whiskey tasting and small bites hosted by UPM Raflatac! Still is a homegrown grain-to-glass distillery in the heart of Austin, which uses only Texas-grown grains. They are a ragtag collection of whiskey obsessives, gin enthusiasts, sustainability wonks, and good friends who nerd out about the theory of élevage and heirloom grain varieties. After distillation, they send the spent grains back to the farmers to feed their livestock and amend their soil—bringing the entire process full-circle and back to its origins. From the use of slow-water reduction techniques, to their dedication to in-house, grain-to-glass distillation, their attention to pure, green distilling is borderline crazy.

Transportation will be provided from AT&T Hotel & Convention center to Still Austin – the bus will leave the hotel promptly at 6:10 pm. At the end of the mixer, feel free to make your way back to the AT&T Hotel & Conference Center, or stick around and explore some of the other Austin hot spots next door! 

You may only add ONE Wednesday evening activity to your registration.
