You don’t normally think of beer and breast milk going together, right? But Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin has figured out a way to make this unorthodox pairing work.

Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin is hosting a party Thursday: “Beer, Babies & Boobs Kickoff Party.”

The event at Zilker Brewing Co. will feature beer specials, Art of Tacos food truck, Jon Klekman Jazz Quartet and on-site screen printing from Fine Southern Gentlemen.

Find the event at 5-7 p.m. Feb. 2 at Zilker Taproom, 1701 E. Sixth St.

Can’t come tonight? For every Coffee Milk Stout sold during the month of February, a portion of sales will benefit the milk bank’s charitable care program, which provided $175,000 worth of care last year.

The new Mothers' Milk Bank of Austin should open in March.

The milk bank is trying to raise $2.9 million to renovate a 29,000-square-foot space off Airport Boulevard to become its fourth location and be able to double its milk production.
