Seats are going quick, so here’s a final reminder about an upcoming event we’re excited to present: 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 (and Certified Cicerone) Lindsay Compton. Beers on the menu will be: Prairie Weisse, Live Oak Berliner Weisse, Austin Beerworks Einhorn, Mikkeller Ich Bin Ein Berliner Weisse Passionfruit, and Prof Fritz Briem 1809. Follow the link for the 6:30pm and 8pm sessions. Grab your tickets now!
And it’s the most wonderful time of the year: Texas Lambic Fest 2017! We can’t wait for this annual sour soiree, and you can be a part of the festivities, too. Tickets can be bought here for this celebration of some of Belgium’s (and the world’s) finest lambics, krieks, guezes, oud bruins, goses, and more! Sponsors include yours truly, Collective Brewing Project, Big Bend Brewing, Hops & Grain, and more. Don’t miss this!
