Now in its 23rd year, this Gruene Hall tradition is where hipsters, oldsters, suits, locals, and drifters mix it up to start their weekend rite (pun intended). The quintessential Friday happy hour celebrates the warmer weather with great beer prices, prize giveaways, and Texas tunes broadcast live by KNBT 92.1 FM Radio New Braunfels. There’s even a special guest interview each week. Some that have stopped by for a chat have included Ray Benson, Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton, Radney Foster, Hayes Carll, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
