Rhythm & Beers

unnamed

Saturday is National Record Store Day, and we at WhichCraft are big fans of spinning vinyl, so using Dogfish Head’s Beer to Drink Music To as our muse, we’ve decided to make a day of it, also. Come visit both locations as we jam records all day – including ones you bring – and sample and tap various Dogfish Head beers.

First, at South Lamar, we’ll have a tasting of several Dogfish Head beers, including both their fresh and cellared 120 Minute IPA. They even donated a custom record player for the occasion! Then at Mueller, we’ll tap a keg of 120 Minute and sell individual bottles, all while spinning your tunes. Yes, read that again, your eyes didn’t deceive you. We’re playing good tunes and drinking great beer all day at WhichCraft, and we want you to be a part of it. After you pick up that new Kendrick on vinyl or an old Tom Waits import, come by either location to keep the music going.

New Beers This Week

(All beer available at both WhichCraft locations unless otherwise noted)

Back in Stock at WhichCraft SoLa: Prairie Phantasmagoria, Prairie Funky Gold, Founder’s KBS (April 21)

Prairie Artisan Ales Apricot Funk – Sour ale aged on apricots. 7.5% ABV / Tulsa, OK / Availability: Decent

Prairie Artisan Ales Pe-Kan – Imperial stout aged on Pecans and Vanilla. 11.5% ABV / Tulsa, OK / RateBeer 96 / Availability: Limited / SoLa Only

Alstadt Brewing Company Kolsch – This premium German-style beer is exceptionally smooth, while also balanced and refreshing. 4.8% ABV / Fredericksburg, TX / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Alstadt Brewing Company Lager – Slightly sweet and malty, with a smooth crisp taste. 5.2% ABV / Fredericksburg, TX / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Golden Road Wolf Pup Session IPA – Hoppy and refreshing, yet highly drinkable with a wildly aromatic tropical and citrus character, it’s the perfect companion to keep on sippin’ for those long, sunny days. 4.5% ABV / Los Angeles, CA / RateBeer 95 / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA – Too extreme to be called beer? 120 Minute IPA is brewed to a colossal 45 degrees plato, boiled for a full two hours while being continuously hopped with high-alpha American hops, then dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month and aged for another month on whole-leaf hops! 18% ABV / Milton, DE / RateBeer 99 / Availability: Extremely Limited

Alaskan Summer Ale – This balances a softly malted palate with the clean freshness of Hallertauer hops. In the tradition of the style, neither overpowers the other. Both hops and malt come together to refresh and renew the palate. The straw-gold color and easy drinkability are an enjoyable way to celebrate summer. 5.3% ABV / Juneau, AK / BeerAdvocate 82 / Availability: Good

Alaskan Big Mountain Pale Ale – Light copper color, dry hopped with Simcoe, Mosaic, and Calypso hops. 5.7% ABV / Juneau, AK / RateBeer 93 / Availability: Good

Great Divide Roadie Radler – Unlike traditional radlers, which add finished soda to the beer, Great Divide’s take on the style uses an obscene amount of grapefruit puree and omits the soda. This easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma. 4% ABV / Denver, CO / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Bishop Sour Cherry Cider – Pucker up for a shockingly brilliant blend of apples and sour cherries. Prepare your buds for a direct current of filtered, non-carbonated acidity and tartness. 6.5% ABV / Dallas, TX / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Deschutes Swivle Head Red – A great choice for malt and hop lovers alike! Tettnang, Willamette, and Northern Brewer hops bring earthy and herbal aromas, while Australian Summer hops complement with stone fruit and melon. Carared and Melanodin malts lend a nice full maltiness, with dark caramel and toffee flavors. 6.4% ABV / Bend, OR / Availability: Good

Avery Hog Heaven – This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel malt backbone. This is a serious beer for serious beer aficionados. Oink! 9.2% ABV / Boulder, CO / RateBeer 98 / Availability: Decent

Oasis Technicolor Motorhome Bangkok Kumquat – Sour ale, dry hopped with kumquats added. 4.5% ABV / Austin, TX / Availability: Good / Mueller Only

Deep Ellum Numb Comfort – Malt flavors, hop bitterness and aroma, yeasty esters…everything has been turned up to ’11’. Numb Comfort is the continuation of the American interpretation of the barley wine. Then they fill the mash tin to the top with four different malts and dose it with enough of our favorite resinous, piney and fruity hops to balance. English Ale yeast takes it from there, and then a portion of this flavorful ale is aged in oak whiskey barrels to drive the complexity past the horizon. 11.5% ABV / Dallas, TX / RateBeer 97 / Availability: Decent

New Beers on Draft at WhichCraft Tap Room (Mueller)

Full Draft List Available on our Website

Buffalo Bayou Sam’s Wake ‘n Bake – Cream ale with coffee and vanilla. 5.8% ABV / Houston, TX

Buffalo Bayou Leagalize Hemp IPA – 7% ABV – Legalize Hemp IPA is packed full of dank hops. Fresh, green hop flavor all the way through and elevated by hemp seed flour. The hemp cuts through the bitterness with earthy nutty undertones. 7% ABV / Austin, TX

Hops & Grain Azacca Greenhouse IPA – Part of the ongoing Greenhouse IPA series, this single hop IPA focuses on the relatively new Azacca hop – giving off a citrusy, tropical flavor and aroma. 7.6% ABV / Austin, TX / BeerAdvocate 87

Petrus 50/50 Flanders Red – Petrus 50/50 is a blend of 50% Aged Pale and 50% Aged Red. Aged Pale is 100% “Mother Beer” aged in Oak Foeders. The gold standard for sour beers in the USA. Aged Red is 85% Dubbel Bruin base with 15% Petrus Aged Pale added to give it a sour essence. Fresh cherries are added to complete the sweet and sour balance. 7.9% ABV / RateBeer 89 / Harelbeke, Belgium

Blue Owl Little Gose – Refreshing sour wheat brewed with sea salt and coriander.  This version includes tangerine and basil in the fermenter to add a new dimension! 3.8% ABV / Austin, TX

Founders PC Pils – Pleasantly crisp, perfectly clean, and profoundly crushable, PC Pils uses our favorite American hops making this Founder’s take on the classic Pilsner. 5.5% ABV / Grand Rapids, MI

Bavik Super Pils – Bavik Super Pils obtains its unique taste and aroma through its exceptional brewing process. Their pils has not been diluted, they only use aroma hops, guarantee a long and cold maturation process, and pasteurization is out of the question. Those four elements result into this unique pils. Never compromise on taste! 5.2% ABV / Harelbeke, Belgium

Community Oaked Mosaic – Community has added oak spirals – carefully-milled helixes of American oak – to their aging tanks, infusing their beloved Mosaic IPA with delicious notes of oak, honey, vanilla, and coconut while preserving the beautiful hop profile. 8.6% ABV / Dallas, TX
