Now an Austin tradition, Clean Energy Beers started off in April 2009 as an informal extension of Dr. Webber’s office hours, and has evolved into a regular gathering of movers and shakers in the Central Texas clean-tech movement. Five years after its inception, the bar-b-que is just as tasty, the beer is still served cold, and the conversation is livelier than ever.
Clean Energy Beers is held on the first Monday of every month from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Uncle Billy’s Brew & Que on Barton Springs Road.
“Clean Energy Beers has no formal agenda – it’s laid-back fun, with only one requirement – you have to like at least one of the following: beer, bar-b-que, or clean energy,” said Dr. Webber.
The event brings together a wide variety of people from Austin’s growing clean energy community, Dr. Webber added.
Most months, about 75 people show up for Clean Energy Beers – job hunters looking for work , employers looking for employees, investors looking for inventors, inventors looking for investors, business partners seeking deals, “and people who just like hanging around other people who like energy.”
