DRIPPING SPRINGS, TX - January 27, 2011 - Don't be fooled by the name, the only need for sharp scissors at this barber shop is for cutting a grand opening ribbon. With a nod to its location's history, The Barber Shop, a new brewpub in downtown Dripping Springs, Texas, opens for business this weekend.
Owned and operated by long time Dripping Springs resident and competitive homebrewer John McIntosh III and his business partner Dave Niemeyer, the bar promises a local pub atmosphere with community-style tables, darts, a dedicated dominoes table, and big screen television for sports. The beer tap line-up features a heavy emphasis on the area's burgeoning community of microbrewers.
"Dripping Springs is just a stone's skip from brewers gaining national acclaim including Real Ale, Jester King, 512, and Thirsty Planet," notes McIntosh. "The Barber Shop was created to celebrate and support local and our selection definitely reflects that."
Wine drinkers will also be able to sip and eat local as The Barber Shop offers wine selections including hometown favorite Bell Springs Winery, and is working closely with The Goodnight Diner, located just a couple of blocks down. Chef Jana Muniz is not only creating a custom nut mix for snacking, but also a convenient takeaway bar menu with easy to order, walkable eats.
The Barber Shop's building started its life around November 1924 as a wooden and tin garage. In 1938 it was given its rock exterior and served as a garage and gas station until around 1960. After that, it was not used commercially for most of the next 25 years when it was then remodeled and turned into a barber shop.
"While Dripping Springs old timers may chuckle at calling this building 'the old barber shop,' that's what it was for the past quarter century and that's the sign that was still up when we took over," muses McIntosh. "Plus it had 'bar' in the name so we went with it."
Repurposing the bar's name and sign is in line with much of the building's revitalization which includes walls made from leftover tin from a friend's barn and a bar built from wood salvaged from a family member's home remodel. Décor includes garage memorabilia and dozens of decades old beer cans that revealed themselves during the remodel.
"We feel fortunate to be in such a unique location and we're keen to maintain a sense of history and community," says McIntosh, a University of Texas graduate who also studied at Oxford where he acquired his appreciation for the local pub. "The Barber Shop warmly welcomes all, but if your family was around when the building was first built, you get dibs on the dominoes table."
The Barber Shop is located at 207 Mercer Street, Dripping Springs. Hours:
Wednesday and Thursday: 3pm-10pm
Saturday: 11am - 12am
Sunday: 12pm - 7pm

San Francisco, CA (January 25, 2011) - After a long day at work, the average American might feel a little bitter at the curveballs life threw his way but cracking open a Bitter American will immediately improve the mood.
And seeing the astronaut chimp on the can will put average troubles into perspective - let's face it, if you'd been rocketed into space against your will, you might be a little bitter, too. Bitter American is 21st Amendment Brewery's newest seasonal, an extra pale ale, available now through March. This is the third in 21st Amendment's series of canned craft seasonals, which also includes Hell or High Watermelon Wheat and Fireside Chat.
Bitter American was first created at 21st Amendment's pub in 2006 as a response to the trend of "extreme beers" - complex beers high in alcohol and often including unusual ingredients. 21st Amendment wanted to offer the opposite: a "session beer," or lower alcohol beer that would encourage patrons to enjoy a drinking session with friends (a staple in British pub culture). This beer packs a lot of hop and malt flavor into a refreshingly low alcohol (4.4% by volume) brew - making it the perfect session beer to enjoy with friends.
"What I love about Bitter American," said Nico Freccia, co-founder, "is that it is the antidote to the strong, dark, intense beers of winter. Winter beers, like barleywines, are incredible styles, but after a while the palate needs a rest. Bitter American provides that."
"The secret to Bitter American is achieving a balance between malt flavor and hops while using a smaller grain bill," says co-founder and Brewmaster Shaun O'Sullivan. "If you just add more hops into a session beer grain bill, you get an unbalanced mess of overwhelming bitterness. Our secret is the use of a special, imported English heirloom malt called Golden Promise. This malt has a rich, full body and distinctive flavor that gives the beer a complex, caramelly and toasty flavor. Against this backdrop, we are able to hop generously to achieve a hop flavor and aroma that belies the strength of the brew."
As Freccia likes to say, "Go ahead. Give one, or three, a try."
Bitter American is available in cans and on draft starting this week at quality bars and stores in all 15 of 21st Amendment's current distribution territories, including CA, OR, WA, AK, ID, MN, OH, MA, NY, NJ, DC, MD, PA, VA, and GA.

About 21st Amendment Brewery
Who the heck are these guys? Hey, we're Nico and Shaun. We live for great beer. In 1920, there were thousands of breweries across America making unique handcrafted beer. The passage of Prohibition wiped out this great culture. After thirteen years without beer, the states ratified the 21st Amendment, ending Prohibition in America. At the 21st Amendment Brewery, we celebrate the right to brew beer, the freedom to be innovative, and the obligation to have fun. www.21st-Amendment.com
Glendale, WI - "Awesome," "Flavorful," "Complex," "Drinkable," "This Black IPA Rocks!" At Sprecher we believe words matter. So when we heard these comments about our Small Batch Black IPA, we knew we had something special. Although seemingly a contradiction, Black India Pale Ale is a combination that some consider the best of both worlds.
