KNBT Friday Afternoon Club

Friday Afternoons

A Gruene Hall tradition, the Friday Afternoon Club is now in its 22nd year! The place where hipsters, oldsters, suits, locals and drifters mix it up to start their weekend rite- pun intended! This quintessential Friday happy hour celebrates the warmer weather with great beer prices, prize giveaways and the best in Texas tunes broadcast live by KNBT 92.1 FM Radio New Braunfels.

There's even a very special guest interview each week! Some Gruene Hall icons that have stopped by for a chat have included Ray Benson, Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton, Radney Foster, Hayes Carll and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Good times!
