Weekend Specials

Real Ale Pinsetter 6 Packs for $6.99 – Pinsetter Amber Lager was created in the spirit of a uniquely American style, the California Common. Originally produced in an era without the benefits of modern refrigeration, a hybrid style of lager emerged that was fermented at temperatures typically reserved for ale yeasts. The end result was a medium-bodied beer with a lager-clean malt character and a subtle fruitiness derived from its time at these warmer fermentation temperatures. 5.4% ABV / Blanco, TX
