Into the thick of it, fellow castaways!

Ahoy there, ahoy! I’d don’t have any houses to offer, no cars either, but I can see we’re going in the direction of some tasty beers this week (don’t sleep on that Calvados BA Golden Draak gurl!). Perhaps you don’t TikTok the hours away like I do, but man those Backyardigans have some sick beats y’all! Ol’ McDonald’s going to have to sell the farm to keep up on production value. Thanks to all of the tortured parents of the past decade for my current amusement. I’ll pour one out for you.

Tomorrow night the fine folks from Roughhouse will be in doing a tasting of their wonderful products from 5:30-8pm. Hi Sign’s coming in on the 24th, too!!! We’re actively working on wrangling in more folks for more pint nights. See, we truly do care about you.

For the month of June, we’ve circled back to one of Austin’s classic craft breweries, Circle Brewing! We’ve got Lady Bird American IPA, Envy Amber, Blur Hefe, and Alibi Blond all for $7.99!

Into the thick of it! On and on we push!

Back in StockChampion Daydream Paralysis, Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere, Ciders of Spain Good Clean Funk, Adelbert’s Philosophizer, Live Oak Gold, Drie Fonteinen Armand & Gaston 375mL,

City Orchard Silver Tip – Silver Tip, part of our Apple Tree Series, is a hand-crafted semi-dry cider.  Made with a blend of tree-ripened, heritage and culinary apples, Silver Tip is a refreshing and complex cider that pairs well with any occasion.  As the apple tree awakens from its winter slumber, the fruit bud separates at the tip, exposing silver tissue.  It is only a matter of months before the Silver Tip becomes an apple that we press and craft into this refreshing cider.  ABV 6.9%

El Segundo DDH Citra Pale Ale -The base is very similar to the very straightforward Blue House Pale Ale. We swap our the crystal malt for some vienna, and then after fermentations we add an insane amount of Citra for a Double Dry-hop. The result? A hop monster with a whole lotta citrus aroma up in yo face! This beer is a real crowd pleaser because of its up front fruitiness, and restrained bitterness. We often find that people who don’t even like “hoppy” beer love it! Give it a sample, and find out the glory that is the Citra hop. 5.5% ABV

El Segundo Brave the S-Pipe -If you’re looking for a “locals only” surf spot on your visit, then you need to “BRAVE THE S-PIPE!” Affectionately named for exactly what you think it is, these beautiful A-Frame waves are created by this artificial reef but fear not, this s-pipe is 5-miles long! With surf suitable for all boards and experience levels, and a year round water rating of “A+,” the only thing you really have to brave are the waves themselves! 8.8% ABV

Lone Pint El Cuero White Stout -El Cuero White Stout is a whimsical beer characterized by the disconnect between its appearance and flavor; using Maris Otter, Caramalt, flaked oats, flaked barley, Ecuadorian Cacao Nibs, and Cuvee Coffee. The Cuvee Coffee is brewed with Colombian Coffee from the Las Mingas Project co-op. Tasting notes: Pours a rich yellow, with white head, but drinks with all of the complex chocolate and roasted coffee flavors expected from a stout. 8.1% ABV

Panther Island Sour Bush -Lemon Hibiscus Sour brewed in collaboration with Uncle Bekah’s Inappropriate Trucker Hats. Inspired by her love for pretty plants and the famous West Texas Lemon Chilton! 4.2%

Reminiscent of dark chocolate, espresso, and dark dried fruits with a long complex finish, this beer is good for one of those nights where you’ve dug yourself into a snow bank because the ski trip didn’t go quite as planned. Deep brown with mahogany highlights, the hops and malt are very well balanced leaving one to contemplate the myriad of flavors as the beer warms. Moderate to slightly heavy, this beer is heaven in a glass. 7.2% ABV

Bishop Texas Strawberry -If you like strawberries, have we created a beauty for you. Introducing in this corner, Texas Strawberry. And yes it is big, bold, beautiful and all things strawberry.

This extra-blond amber nectar masterpiece undergoes re-fermentation in the bottle, resulting in a beer endowed with unforgettable character.

I hear music, mighty fine music!

It’s the murmur of the people that’ve just stopped by, the rattling of keyboards as the day goes by. What a pleasure it is to see all your shining faces back in the building! Despite losing power for a spell in last Friday’s doozy of a storm, we ended the month of May as one of our best yet. There’s no plan to slow down that momentum, either.

Tonight, June 3rd, we’ll have Circle out for a tasting of their package and draft option from 5:30-8pm. Next Friday the folks from Roughhouse will be in from 5:30-8pm doing just the same. We’ll have more brewers out later in the month, too, perhaps a vintner. And watch out for some food specials. We’re still putting the final details together, but the guys are cooking up some tasty treats for y’all. I suppose this means you’ll have to plan some extra trips into the store.

For the month of June, we’ve circled back to one of Austin’s classic craft breweries, Circle Brewing! We’ve got Lady Bird American IPA, Envy Amber, Blur Hefe, and Alibi Blond all for $7.99!

Anytime I think my world is wrong, I get me out of bed and search for this song.

Later,  Y’all!

Fair State Flavor Pop TechnologyWe’re still having fun experimenting with the juicy, tropical side of hops through our hazy IPAs. “Flavor Pop Technology” is a fun phrase that one of our longtime friends (and now suppliers) uses to talk about the latest and greatest in aromatic compound research and hop application techniques. Fun! For this beer, we took Idaho 7 and a top-secret cryo blend, and we introduced them in a few different ways during fermentation to maximize the tropical vibes. We also used a cool-fermenting kolsch yeast to kick in a bit of a fruity character. The result is a super juicy and lightly sweet beer with big pineapple and banana runts notes. 6.8%ABV
