Flip over the next page in that hunky firemen calendar, we’re on to March, baby. This means a new Brewery of the Month, and we’re happy to reveal that it’s Austin’s own Independence Brewing! And even better, we have two different offers. First, Cowboys from Helles, Power & Light, and Austin Amber will be $6.99/6pk; then, we’re offering Stash, Liberty Lunch, and Red Bud for $7.99/6pk.
Then, don’t miss our event with Community Brewing at Mueller on Friday, 3/2. Along with the usual Buy the Beer, Keep the Glass special, we’ll have Oaked Mosaic and Public Enemy #1 on tap. The latter is their award-winning Public Ale aged for 5 months in California White Burgundy barrels with three Brettanomyces strains and tart cherries. It’ll run from 5-8, don’t miss it.
Finally, we have something fun planned for Saturday at Lamar. First, we’ll be sampling some of New Belgium’s beers: their Tartastic and Voodoo Ranger Hazy IPA. But because we also like to kick it old school, we sample of the beers of old Belgium. Or, well, current Belgium: Cuvee Jacobins Rouge and Tripel Karmeliet. New Belgium, old Belgium. Get it? Yeah, you get it. Now just don’t miss it.

Real Ale Grapefruit Gose – A slightly sour wheat beer, it’s known for hints of coriander and a unique saltiness that is derived from the local water source.

Firestone Walker Lupulin Distortion No. 009 – Revolution No. 009 is a showcase for five “public domain” hops from the United States and Germany, offering a fresh twist on some not-so-familiar favorites.

The German hops round out the blend with a dimension of bright fruitiness. 5.9% ABV / Paso Robles, CA / Availability: Decent

Martin House Eagle Mountain Pilsner – A more traditional style of beer, Eagle Mountain is everything you’d want in a sessionable brew. It has a slightly sweet taste, cause by the single use of two row malts and then a nice crisp bitterness on the backend from the addition of Czech Saaz hops. 5.2% ABV / Fort Worth, TX / Availability: Good
