Aside from the incredible line-up that typically occupies the grounds of The Austin City Limits Festival, I’ve got a short list of things that certainly qualify as non-musical highlights each year when I visit the weekend long musical love fest.
The Austin Eats pavilion is almost reason to hit the festival all by itself. The sloppy nachos from the Salt Lick BBQ booth makes this dude bust out a massive BBQ-sauce covered smile. To wash it down? Sure, there’s beer and that’s always a nice way to enjoy a sunny afternoon, but in Austin, there’s something else that seems to call out to me more so than even an icy brew does. Sweet Leaf Iced Tea.
I know, I know. the Austin-based bottled tea is readily available on a relatively wide-scale outside of Austin, but when in Rome, you know?
Whether your heading to the Festival this year or not, head over to Sweet Leaf’s new Granny’s Almanac site, where you can get involved and possibly win all sorts of sweet items from the Austin institution. Feel really passionate towards Sweet Leaf? Put your passion into words and see if that can make you a big winner, also.
Prizes range from tickets to festivals such as ACL, Lollapoalooza and Langerado to a year’s supply of Sweet Leaf Tea! Hey, there are also great offers and deals to be had, even if you’re not some grand-prize winner, so get to it!
In fact, WANT SOME SWEET LEAF TEA MERCH FOR YOURSELF? Leave a comment telling us what your faovrite flavor of Sweet Leaf Tea is (or perhaps tell us what your favorite cocktail recipe involving Sweet Leaf Tea is?), and we’ll pick a random winner from a drawing for some great stuff!
