An Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month Celebration is being held at Austin Beerworks featuring a variety of events including the relaunch of Eastern Philosophy, a Kaiju Brew. 

Eastern Philosophy, a Kaiju Brew was first released in January 2022 as part of a collaboration between Austin Beerworks and Kaiju Cut & Sew.
