B-Side Open for Business: Help out Bitter End Staff

Charlie blogged last week about the Bitter End fire. My son goes to school with a child of one of the waitstaff there and he just posted this to our school message board:

I wait tables at the Bitter End, and I know some of you must have heard that the Bitter End was struck by fire last Sunday afternoon. No one was hurt, but the 3 alarm blaze destroyed the kitchen and shut down the brewery. The kitchen will be rebuilt from scratch, but that will take two months.

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP: The B-Side lounge & taproom at the Bitter End is now open for business and what our employees (including myself) need is for everyone to come by and spend some money, drink some local beer, and help fill the tip jars. We will also have an “Employee Fire Relief Fund Jar” to fill that will be split amongst the staff that are not working that shift. Tell everyone you know that we are open and need their business!!!

Our management staff is shuffling schedules to give everyone a chance to make some money and get some financial relief. Benefits are around the corner and more info will be forthcoming. Our friends at Live Oak and other local breweries are supplementing our Bitter End beer supply (we saved about 75 kegs of BE beer).

I myself thought the whole place as shutdown because of the fire, but that’s apparently not the case. So, if you’re looking for a place for a few happy hour drinks this week, head to B-Side and help out the staff there as they try to get through the next couple of months. I’m always up for drinking for a good cause, especially when it involves Austin Pale Ale!
