Back to the Future (Unfortunately)

What is this, a second WhichCraft newsletter in the same week?? Typically, we send one and only one email a week letting you know about all the new beers we’ve received in the past week. Suffice it to say this is not a normal week. Given Gov Abbott’s announcement this morning that bars and tap rooms must again close for on-premise consumption, we’re right back where we were two months ago, and that just plain sucks.

All Texans are sad, frustrated, angry and everything else about having to go backwards. Particularly as us and thousands of other small businesses have been trying to reopen safely and cleanly, providing a place for our employees to work and our customers to visit. Yet we’re going in reverse.

Our plan is to yet again revert back to off-premise-only sales, which includes coffee, crowlers/growlers, and packaged beer/wine/cider to-go.

We’ll do modified hours of 9am until 8pm Monday through Saturday and noon until 8pm on Sundays for the foreseeable future.

So that this email isn’t all bad news, we’ve also received a handful of new beers in the last 24 hours, so I’ve posted those below for online purchase and curbside pickup. You can still of course visit the store for take-away sales during business hours if you feel comfortable.

We love our customers and we look forward to serving you again.
