Austin Weekend Roundup: Local Prosciutto and Local Beer

Craft Pride's Texas-y ceiling
We’re not sure if it’s the calm before the Fourth of July parties, but this weekend is a little quiet. Here’s what’s on the agenda.


Pop-Up PIGnic 
Antonelli’s Cheese Shop is hosting a second pop-up picnic. This one celebrates Ham Independence and features La Quercia American-made prosciutto. At 9 AM on Saturday morning the Antonellis will announce the location on their social media accounts; hurry to the spot to get a free picnic basket, first come, first served. Games and live music, with donations to benefit Slow Food Austin. (Location TBD; 10AM - 1PM) 


3rd Annual June State Beer Challenge 
On Sunday evening, head to Craft Pride for a different kind of drinking contest. The You Stay Hoppy Austin blog has challenged beer drinkers to drink only brews produced in the state where they live. Craft Pride is tapping three local casks, from Austin Beerworks, Hops and Grain Brewing, and Adelbert’s Brewery. There’s live music from the Brass Buckel and food from the Bacon Bus out back. Plus, the first 34 people to buy a cask beer and mention “state beer” will get a gratis special brewery pint glass. (61 Rainey St.; 6PM)
