Some heroes get ticker-tape parades, but the Defender prefers parties. Head to Waller Creek Pub on Sunday, March 13 from 2-6 PM for a celebration of the Defender and a break from the madness of SXSW. There’s no better way to recharge than plenty of beer (and if you arrive during the first hour, it’s free).
The Brooklyn Brewery is packing the pub with vintage arcade games, and we’ll have Brooklyn Lager, Pilsner, and the hero, Defender IPA to fuel your long-dormant video game rivalries. Austin artists will be on hand to create joyful art in front of your very eyes. Fancy a super-hero caricature of yourself? The Brooklyn Brewery has you covered. They will also be joined by Jeremy Buzek of Ten Pixels Tall playing chiptune music on an array of Gameboys, which you really have to see to believe.
The bartender can absolutely beat you at Tapper. Add this to your SXSW rounds by confirming your (free) RSVP.
