We get it: it’s hot. Who wants to leave the cool, safe confines of the AC? But what’s this? No beer in the fridge? No problem! Instead of going to your favorite bottle shop, why not bring your favorite bottle shop to you? We’re excited to be partnering with Postmates to introduce a new service at our WhichCraft Mueller location: delivery! Follow the link to view our lineup, order a sixer to go, and as always, tip your drivers.
Make sure to drop by Mueller this week for two great events. First, Collective Brewing drops by tonight to taste some delicious beers. On tap, we’ll offer Funky Thunder and Biere de Garde, and pour samples of Suspicious Delicious, Brett SMaSHY, and Cup o’ Beer. Sour beer lovers should not miss this. Then on Saturday, Lone Pint drops by to throw a SMaSH Night. Beers on the menu will be Yellow Rose, Zythophile Ella, and Zythophile Vic Secret.
Finally, on Tuesday, July 25, we’re having another Style Night with the Beer Museum. This time, we fight back against the summer heat by delving into Berliner Weisses. We’ll be offering two sessions, at 6:30 and 8:00, each an hour long, and each hosted by WhichCraft’s own Lindsay Compton. Follow the link for the 6:30pm and 8pm sessions. More details, and beer selection, to come in the next few weeks, but grab your tickets now!
