4th of July Buy More Save More Special!

Since we’re all looking at a holiday weekend without our typical friends and family and BBQs and pool parties, WhichCraft is here to help with the one thing we can still do safely at the moment: help you stock up on plenty of beers to drink this weekend! We’ll do so by offering a buy-more-save-more promo Thursday through end of day Sunday, effective both in-store and online for curbside.

Spend $50 on your entire purchase to save 5%, spend $100 to save 10% and spend $150 to save 20%. You may as well stock up – we all know y’all aren’t going anywhere this weekend! Everything we sell is eligible (minus gift cards).

We also welcome a new Brewery of the Month, one of our favorites as well as yours: Saint Arnold! Texas’ oldest craft brewery will be coming to the table with $7.99 six packs all month long. Enjoy Summer Pils (arriving Friday), Art Car IPA and Headliner blonde this week, and next week we’ll be getting a fresh shipment of Guten Tag marzen to add to the mix.

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.
