Kolaches and Shiner Bock: A Benefit in Brooklyn for West, Texas
it's kolache time
Food lovers may be familiar with West, Texas, a beloved town off the highway between Dallas and Austin. It's home to Czech Stop and the Village Bakery, famous for their kolaches, the regional pastries that traveled and flourished with the state's Czech immigrants.
Last week, a massive explosion of the West Fertilizer Company plant devastated the small town, killing 15 people and injuring over 150. Homes and businesses were destroyed, and as families return to the rubble, the images out of West have been heartbreaking.
We love Autumn Stanford's more experimental kolaches, but on Sunday, April 28, she'll be baking more traditional ones, too. Stop by the bakery from 3 to 6 p.m. and donate $20 (or more) for a taste of the pastries paired with Shiner Bock Beer from Spoetzl Brewery, which is newly available in New York. All funds will go to West residents through Pointwest Bank.
