We Got New Beers For Ya!

Well, we’re still truckin’ this week with our current plan: open 12pm – 8pm with options to still visit or call ahead for an order. You can call to place an order to come pick up, 512-655-2899. If you know what you’d like I’d be happy to put together an order for you, take credit card information over the phone, and run the order out to your car. You’re still welcome to visit the store as well; we’re having people keep their distance and sanitizing credit cards and pens during your purchase to minimize contact.

Unfortunately, we have succumbed to the Great Nationwide Crowler Shortage of 2020. Yes, that’s right, we’re officially out of can Crowlers until the last week of April. We’re selling the rest of our glass growlers under cost — just $2 and $3 for 32oz and 64oz respectively, though you can’t bring it back for a refill until after they lift the ban. So if you don’t have too many glass growlers at home already, now is the time to get em for cheap! Liquid prices vary – visit the store or call for pricing.

Find a little comfort in this harrowing time with your old faves Live Oak for our Brewery of the Month. From now through April please enjoy all Live Oak 6 packs for $7.99! Epic beers, epic price, get comfy.

Back to the Future: A S Lamar Throwback!

I can’t thank everyone enough for still shopping with us. Y’all are great, and thanks for supporting your favorite local bottle shop. This is like a throwback to the S Lamar shop! I slung packaged beers for years at the OG bottle shop so I GOT THIS.

We’re still open 12pm – 8pm with options to still visit or call ahead for an order. You can call to place an order to come pick up, 512-655-2899. If you know what you’d like I’d be happy to put together an order for you, take credit card information over the phone, and run the order out to your car. You’re still welcome to visit the store as well; we’re having people keep their distance and sanitizing credit cards and pens during your purchase to minimize contact. Unfortunately I don’t have an easy way to publish our full current inventory online, and frankly I haven’t had much time to try and figure it out. Sorry about that!

On to a new month and that means a new Brewery of the Month! From now through April please enjoy all Live Oak 6 packs for $7.99! Epic beers, epic price, for the win.

Things Change… Again

Another week (that felt like a month) and another change in required operations from the City of Austin.

We are continuing to operate with reduced hours, and will be 12pm – 8pm 7 days/week for the foreseeable future. We are still allowing (no more than 5) customers in the store at a time and serving packaged beer/wine/cider, crowlers, and coffee to-go.  We’re mandating everyone keep their distance and also cleaning everything regularly. Also we’d be happy to put together an order for you and take credit card payment over the phone and run your order out to you… just call 512-655-2899.

We can’t say enough how thankful we are to you for continuing to shop local, both with us and with your other favorite local businesses during this tough time. We love you, Austin, and we’ll get through this.

We’re still offering Houston’s own SpindleTap Brewing Co as our current Brewery of the Month. Enjoy such crushable six-packs as the Hoptown Gusher IPA, Honey Hole ESB,  and the Boomtown Blonde — each just $6.99!
