If you love coffee and beer — and who doesn’t, really — this is the best way to spend a Saturday morning and early afternoon.

ABOUT THE UP & DOWN TOUR
A lot more than just a walk-through, the Up & Down Tour is your backstage pass into the world of craft coffee and craft beer. Brought to you by Casa Brasil Coffees and South Austin Brewing Company, this once-a-month tour will impart industry-level knowledge to food and beverage lovers as well as deliver first-hand the experience of production and evaluation processes. Both sessions are broken down into three segments:
I. Raw Materials
II. Production Process (where the magic happens)
III. Tasting and Product Analysis
10:00AM Blast Off: The Coffee Tour (w/Casa Brasil’s Joel Shuler)
12:30PM And Down We Come: The Beer Tour (w/South Austin brewmaster Eric Wolf)
02:00PM Touchdown: The Tour Ends
I learned more about coffee and beer in one day than in all the rest of my years combined. It was so enjoyable spending the day with passionate craftsmen who are doing what they love. I can’t recommend this tour enough.
