Bring It On, 2018!

Happy New Year, everyone! As you stock up for this night of reflection, revelry, and rambunctiousness, don’t forget to make WhichCraft your destination for that special beverage to ring in the New Year. Might I suggest a Hole Lang Syne from Rabbit Hole? Or maybe a Fin Du Monde seems appropriate for 2017. Either way, we have all your bases covered, including something easy-drinking to cry into when you watch The Apartment on New Year’s Day. Or is that just me?

New Year’s Day at the Tap Room we’ll help you nurse your hangover with specials all day. $5 craft beer Red Eyes, $5 coffee/Sputnik and Happy Hour specials all day.  We’ll also have Tacodeli tacos in the morning and free munchies while you watch your favorite bowl games.

Of course, a new year means a new month, which means a new brewery of said month. You guys killed it all month with Live Oak, and I know we’ll keep that momentum going with January. It’s Martin House! All month, get their Salty Lady, True Love, or Friday IPA for $6.99. We’re starting 2018 on a great note.
