Hey, Longhorns: the Austinite Pilz now comes in burnt-orange cans

Posted September 29th, 2016


Check it out, Texas fans.

Strange Land Brewery’s Austinite Pilz now comes in burnt orange cans, a nod to the city’s beloved Longhorns. The beer debuted in red cans this summer, but the brewery’s co-founders, Adam Blumenshein and Tim Klatt, decided to give it a new look for fall.

Because what’s more Austin than Texas football?


“We named it ‘the Austinite’ because it pairs so well with all things Austin: food trucks, tailgating, hiking-and-biking, etc,” Blumenshein said in a release. “It was a perfect fit. We love and are inspired by Austin, so we wanted to craft the perfect beer for Austinites.”
