This weekend, we got a doozy of a double shot of events. First, on Friday 12/14, Founders will be here, and we’ll be tapping a certain beer you may have heard of called CBS. And not just one, but two. Two! Make sure to try pours of both the 2017 and 2018. Kegs will be tapped at 5pm, and then we’ll be selling bottles of 2018 CBS at 6pm…first come, first served.
Then on Saturday, we welcome in Celis, our Brewery of the Month, from 4-7pm to sample their Winter Lager, along with selling all of their 6pks for $7.99.
And are you looking for gift ideas for that person in your life who’s oh so hard to shop for? You know where you can never go wrong? Beer! Or coffee and tacos, we don’t discriminate. Come in today and pick up a WhichCraft gift card, or talk to one your friendly neighborhood staff members for guidance on that special bottle.

Brazos Valley 7 Winter Angels – Brenham, TX / Availability: Decent
Adelbert’s Sundowner – Biere Brut is a blend of the spicy, fruity notes of a Belgian ale balanced with the mouthfeel and body of a sparkling wine. Brewed with champagne yeast, this effervescent ale possesses white grape and green apple notes with a crisp, bone dry finish. Pair with fresh oysters, crab cakes, or goat cheese. 12% ABV / Austin, TX / BeerAdvocate 83 / Availability: Decent
Stone Scorpion Bowl – They took floral and citrus notes from Mosaic, Loral and Mandarina Bavaria hops to dish up a mouthwatering fruit punch to the palate. 7.5% ABV / Escondido, CA / RateBeer 91 / Availability: Decent
Stone Ruination Sans Filtre – Unfiltered and dry hopped Ruination, to squeeze every last drop of piney, citrusy, tropical, punk, metal & hard rock essence from the hops that give this beer its hugely assertive character. 8.5% ABV / Escondido, CA / Availability: Decent
Texas Keeper Cider Noir – Made from 100% Northern Spy apples double fermented with extra dark Belgian candi, pecans, and orange peel. Belgian candi, made from beet and date sugar, is a classic component of Dubbel and Trippel ales. Dark fruit and toasted bread notes from the candi combine with ripe pear from the Spy. A hint of pecan and orange round out this stout cider. 10.1% ABV / Austin, TX
Vista Laissez Faire – This delicate, wine-like ale is made with 100% Texas grains, house-aged hops, and Belgian Brett yeast which produces a mild, tropical fruit aromatic profile. We aged over four month in freshly-emptied Montepulciano wine barrels, lending a pink hid and notes of pear and rose. These bottles will age well in your cellars for several years. 6.5% ABV / Driftwood, TX
The Bruery Bakery (16oz cans) – Barrel aged imperial stout blended with a pastry imperial stout with coconut and vanilla added. 13% ABV / Placentia, CA / Availability: Good (Arriving Friday)

Upland Teddy Bear Kisses – A dark and robust beer brewed in the traditional stout method. Teddy Bear Kisses features an abundance of dark malts and high alpha hops for a powerful impact of roast, chocolate, and sweet bitterness. The lucky few who cuddle up to a warming session with Teddy Bear Kisses sense the velvety malt character, balanced bitter intensity, and soothing chocolate notes created by long aging on fair trade cocoa nibs. Teddy Bear Kisses will make you feel warm and happy inside, but it’s definitely not your childhood cuddle toy. 10.2% ABV / Bloomington, IN / Availability: Decent (Arriving Friday)
Jester King Foudreweizen – Collaboration with Live Oak Brewing Co. Foudreweizen is a farmhouse wheat beer fermented in an oak foudre. It was created by taking Hefeweizen wort brewed at Live Oak, moving it across town to Jester King in portable tanks, racking the wort into an oak foudre at Jester King, pitching the wort with Live Oak’s Hefeweizen yeast, then allowing it to slowly transform and mature over the course of months in the presence of native yeast and bacteria alive in the walls of Jester King’s foudre. 5.6% ABV / Austin, TX / RateBeer 98 / Availability: Decent (Arriving Friday)
Anderson Valley Chai Solstice – Additions of cardamom, star anise, and vanilla create a mélange of sweetness and complexity; while orange peel, ginger, black pepper add a zesty freshness and a touch of spicy heat. 6.9% ABV / Boonville, CA / Availability: Good (Arriving Friday)
Firestone Walker Leo v. Ursus: Gen-1 – Unfiltered West Coast IPA. 7.6% ABV / Paso Robles, CA / Availability: Good (Arriving Friday)

Noble Rey B.A. Barampus – Not your usual holiday spiced beer. This beer hits you with a robust mix of roasted malt flavor, full body and balanced hop bitters you have come to expect from their year round Baracus… but wait, what is that coming down the chimney? It’s the smooth taste of Peanut Butter mingling with holiday spices Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Allspice. 6.1
