Austin_Detours_Pepsi

We recently took care of 60 great folks from Gamesa, a division of Pepsi, while they were holding a team event in Austin. Gamesa is a major producer of cookies and exports its goodies to more than 16 countries worldwide. We just knew the Gamesa team would love exploring Austin’s culinary delights and they weren’t disappointed!

We started the evening with a visit to those amazing brew-meisters at Hops & Grain, where our guests enjoyed a taproom tour followed by tastings of Zoe, Pale Dog, Alteration and other delectable craft beers. We love the emphasis these guys place on sustainability, and we kinda love their drinks too, as did the Pepsi team. You can learn more about Hops & Grain at: http://www.hopsandgrain.com

Next we made the short journey to see those foodie wizards at Mettle, one of our very favorite Austin bistros. We love the atmosphere, we love the service and, OK, we admit, we’d like to elope with their vegan bagna cauda and thyme basted redfish. The Pepsi team had a blast and worked through a bunch of dishes while carefully keeping room for dessert.

To keep things sweet we then headed to Churro Co, the cool food truck that challenges customers with “Bet You’ve Never Had Churros Like This Before”. Well, guess what? The Pepsi team had never had churros like these before! We spent a great half hour with Leo, getting the skinny on all things churro, as our folks tucked into combinations of Wimberly, Campfire and Date Night.

We then rounded off the evening with a downtown tour, after which some of the Pepsi team headed to 6th Street. We’re not saying any more!
