Food Bank to Participate in the Hell Yes Project Olympics at The ABGB on Memorial Day

The Hell Yes Project Olympics at The ABGB
1305 West Oltorf / Austin, Texas 78704
Memorial Day, Monday, May 28th 3pm-8p

The ABGB is hosting its 2nd Annual Hell Yes Project Olympics & Memorial Day Party on Monday, May 28th. Starting at 3pm, eight Austin non-profits will compete in field-day style events for a $1000 Gold Medal prize. It will be a fun-filled, all-afternoon party of food, beer, music... and sports. The scheduled events include Water Balloon Toss, Speed Cornhole, Crowler Can Stacking, Poop The Potato, and Simon Says. Points will be awarded for each event, culminating in a final event of live band karaoke. Each non-profit team will take the ABGB stage with the band Karaoke Apocalypse and get one song to impress the crowd. Crowd participation will help determine the event’s winner and perhaps, the entire Olympics.

This year, the competing non-profits are: Austin Pets Alive!, Ghisallo Cycling Initiative, Austin Habitat for Humanity, Save Our Springs Alliance, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians - HAAM, Central Texas Food Bank, Foundation Communities, AIDS Services of Austin.

Through The Hell Yes Project, The ABGB donates 5% of its annual profits to its non-profit partners and charities. The ABGB works with these non-profits, assisting them with volunteers, fundraising, and good times. The ABGB says “Hell Yes!” to making its community better, and the project’s efforts put into action the ABGB’s philosophy: Beer Makes It Better.

The first Hell Project Olympics were a great success. Austin Habitat For Humanity took home the top prize. Strong efforts from Save Our Springs Alliance and Austin Pets Alive! in the karaoke category made the finish exciting. To see photos from last year, visit:

The ABGB, a brewery/music venue/restaurant, opened in August 2013. Known for its medal-winning lager beers, it’s been named Brewpub of the Year at The Great American Beer Festival for the last two years (2016 & 2017). Its stage features live music four days a week, including a residency with Warren Hood on Wednesdays and a honky tonk dance party on Sunday afternoons called Sunday Best. The menu of pizzas, salads, and sandwiches changes frequently, based on what is locally available, fresh, and in-season.
