Freedmen’s, Austin’s coolest laid-back whiskey bar and BBQ joint, is turning five years old in December. They’ll be celebrating with a Southern-style Whiskey and Pig Roast in their popular beer garden on December 15, with guest receiving a plate featuring half a pound of succulent pig, collard greens, jalapeño cheddar grits, black-eyed peas, and a buttermilk biscuit.
The carving promptly begins at 6:30 p.m. and seats are $25 per person. Purchase tickets here www.eventbrite.com/e/5th-
In addition, Freedmen’s will feature five whiskeys during the month of December and a pairing menu of select barbecue options features Makers 46 with fatty brisket ($5), Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye with pastrami ($5), Kilbeggan Single Grain with pulled pork ($5), Auchentoshan Three Wood with chocolate mousse ($5), and Suntory Whisky Toki with smoked mushrooms ($5). A WotM flight may be purchased for $5.
