Quickie Pickie embodies the feel of East Austin. Owner Zahir Prasla makes sure of that. “Part convenience grocery, part café, part beer joint, we are a hybrid uniquely suited to our neighborhood in the same way the bodegas of the northeast, the packed little colmados of Latin America, and the bar-tabacs of Paris and Marseille are uniquely suited to theirs,” he says.
Thursday night at Quickie Pickie is the time to clue yourself into new brews. Each week, they feature a different brewery with cheap pours, free swag, and a chance to chat with the biggest beer nerds in Austin.
