A New Class of Kolache

Local, Organic, and True to Czech-inspired Tradition

Words by Jessica Devenyns

If there’s one thing Austin doesn’t have enough of, it’s kolaches to go with its vast local brew selection. Thankfully, come May, brothers Josh and Noah Lit are going to change that.

Batch’s savory kolaches are the result of a harmonious pairing between the pastries of Jasmine Jones (owner of I Knead That bakery) and the meticulously smoked meats of Micklethwait Craft Meats. Their sweet treats are no less enticing either and they will be at the center of Batch’s sustainability efforts. Co-owner Josh claims that when crafting the kolaches, “We use local as much as possible. Most of the local stuff is going to be for the fruit ones we do.”

Batch may not be open yet, but people couldn’t be more excited. The anticipation of enjoying a kolache-pub experience on the east side has already amassed admirers on social media as followers eagerly await the announcement of the next pop-up pub where they can sample the latest flavor of kolache.

Josh, however, claims that these pop-ups only scratch the surface of their future offerings. In the brick and mortar that’s coming this spring, “We’ll have beer on tap as well. We’ll also have a full coffee program.” Moreover, he announced that, as a team, they are aiming to serve all demographics of snackers. Soon, from 7am to 11pm, you will be able to get your fill of warm, Czech-inspired Texas pastries.
