How Will You Celebrate National Beer Day on April 7th?
How will you celebrate National Beer Day? Well first off, if you live in San Antonio or are just visiting our beautiful city, you need to learn to drink like a Texan. You need to know how to dress your beer on beer day! Dressing beer is rooted in the Latin tradition of adding citrus and salt to beer; this drink ritual can be observed on the streets of Mexico and throughout the south, especially Texas.

Twang, a Texas-based manufacturer of Beer Salt, is a citrus flavored salt which is used to dress the rim of longnecks, glasses and beer mugs. While Twang dominates as the top beer salt provider in Texas, their products are also sold in 46 states across the country and can be purchased online. There are four popular Beer Salt flavors: Michelada, Lemon-Lime, Lime, and Hot Lime; they go best with Domestic Lagers, Mexican Imports or Belgian-style wheat beers. The family-owned company grew up in San Antonio with these familiar flavors of citrus and salt, influencing their philosophy that the rest of the country of beer lovers should, at the very least, test out dressing their beer if they haven’t tried it before.

The Granary offers guests a touch of Southern hospitality while presenting barbecue and craft beer in a new, yet familiar way by experimenting with the elements and flavors of smoke and live fire in cuisine. Priding themselves on sourcing humanely raised, quality meat and seasonal vegetables, The Granary believes that great food starts with a superior product. Tim remains true to his Texas roots with traditional American barbecue fare sliced and served to order in a market style along with house made seasonal sodas during the lunch service. The Granary transforms during dinner service to offer composed plates which incorporate new and interesting flavors from various cultures brought together by the elements of smoke and live fire, which pair harmoniously with the craft beers brewed in house, an extensive tap selection, and a thoughtful wine list. The Granary has been named to the coveted Texas Monthly: Top 50 Barbecue Joints list, published every five years, in 2013 and 2017. The Granary is located at 602 Avenue A, San Antonio, TX
