It was always our intention that the KCCO Black Lager be a great little science experiment, a disruptive and toasty german schwarzbier with hints of coffee and chocolate we intended to distribute up the West Coast, Florida, and Chicago.
But then something crazy happened, what was supposed to be a limited release exploded across 25,000 locations nationwide, somehow making us the 86th largest brewery in the country (what??). But waiting patiently in the wings has been KCCO Blacks big brother, KCCO Gold. The Gold Rush was supposed to begin six months ago but the success of the Black pushed our dates. The Gold is currently rolling out in over 30,000 locations. Beer locator here!
So it’s finally come time to elevate the Black to special-release status. Only a hundred locations across the land have a case or two remaining and in Austin, three bars have it at all - One of which is Kung Fu Saloon.
Today at 4pm we’re closing up shop early here at theCHIVE and headed to Kung Fu to RAK theCHIVERS the last cases of the Black Lager. We’ll stick around until the beer is gone, and pour the final Black on Mac’s head or something ceremonial.
I know it’s a bit last minute but we’re impulsive drinkers here. No tickets necessary for this, just bring the good feels at 4pm and let’s raise a glass of the Black one last time

But Chris isn't just the silly sketch comedian you probably imagine he is from television, he's vastly more interesting and thoughtful. He's also one of the kindest guys we've ever met, so we're honored we had a chance to sit down and chat with him.
BTW, if you haven't already watched the hit show Archer, do yourself a favor and check it out Thursdays at 10PM ET/PT on FX. It's hysterical.
