Our Smartish Neighbor: Hops & Grain


The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come out tomorrow! While we’re busy getting ready for the big day, why not enjoy a cold beer from a local Austin brewery? This week we’re checking out our neighbor Hops & Grain.

Located in the same vibrant East Austin neighborhood Silk calls home, Hops & Grain has been brewing lagers and hop-forward beers since 2011. Their line-up includes office fave The One They Call Zoe, a refreshing pale lager that pairs perfectly with these crisp Texan autumn days (95 degrees is “crisp”, right?).

Hops & Grain also makes a point of giving back and being a good neighbor. Each year the staff volunteers with local nonprofits, and sustainability factors into everything they do. They even give 1% of annual revenue to local environmental nonprofits to keep Austin green. These are good folks who make great beer, so drink up (responsibly, of course).

You can check out Hops & Grain at hopsandgrain.com or on Instagram @hopsandgrain. While you’re at it, you’ll need something to protect your new iPhone from drunken clumsiness. Go grab a Silk case for iPhone 8 or 8 Plus and party on.
