The new brewery from Blackstar Co-Op alums Jeff Young and Suzy Shaffer has found its East Austin home. Blue Owl Brewing is licensed at 2400 E. Cesar Chavez according to TABC records, in a large former industrial space at the corner of Pedernales. A recent Facebook gallery shows the team moving what they call their "glorious glorious tanks" into the space.
Blue Owl will brew sour-mashed beers in a space featuring a tasting room, according to The Chronicle. The lady beer masters of Bitch Beer have a first look at Blue Owl's labels, as well as the story behind the name. For Young, owls represent "own personal nerdiness." Both he and CEO Shaffer worked at Blackstar Co-op, a cooperatively owned brewery and restaurant in Austin.
