Banger’s Sausage House Announces New Release Program to Highlight Rare Beers from Cellar Collection


Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden, located on 79 Rainey Street, announced a new cellar release program developed to share often rare and unique brews with beer aficionados and anyone wanting to learn more about beer. The weekly event, Cellar Release Wednesdays, takes place each Wednesday from 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. The first event is on Feb. 10 featuring Founders Project Pam; next up is the tapping of Dogfish Head Fort on Feb. 17.


The goal is to highlight some of the more rare and hidden beers in their collection. “My hope is to get the breweries involved and tie in meet ups or fun events to make these releases as big as possible,” Courtney Strange, the beer broker at Banger’s said. “We’d love for this to be an entertaining way for our customers and local fanatics to get a peek into our cellar and try some different, amazing beers.”


With 104 beers on draft, another 50 in cans and bottles and the third largest draft system in Texas, Banger’s already has a large selection available to its customers daily. The program intends to shine a light on the beers less likely to be seen on a daily basis.
