— Central Texas brewers fared well in last weekend’s Great American Beer Festival. Local award winners included Real Ale’s Real Heavy (Gold), Save The World’s Lux Mundi (Silver), Pinthouse Pizza’s Bearded Seal (Gold), and Austin Beerworks’ Super Awesome Lager (Gold). Texas finished third in the overall medal count.

— Destination music festival Sound On Sound was canceled late week after a primary investor pulled their funding from the festival, per the Austin Chronicle. Last year’s event featured dozen of local restaurant and beverage vendors including Frank, Cazamance, and Micklethwait Craft Meats.

Kerbey Lane Cafe has turned all monthly featured pancakes pink to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds from the weekly special benefit the charity, with a new flavor debuting each Tuesday. (Tomorrow’s new dish is a Strawberry Banana pancake.)

— The bread and baking at South Lamar’s Odd Duck are the focus of a new piece at Resy. Former Eater editor Paula Forbes takes a deep dive on the restaurant’s bread program with chef-owner Mark Buley here.

Pizza Today ranked both Cane Rosso (#4) and Via 313 (#21) among the nation’s Top 100 independent pizzerias based on sales volume.
