**EXTRA**EXTRA** Weekend edition!

Where has 2021 gone? We’ve made it halfway through August in Texas without bursting into a ball of flames, yet the snowpocalypse feels like it was only yesterday. Hopefully we’ll make it to cooler weather just as fast, but there’s still a lot of heat left coming our way. So, sit back and cool down with some of our new brews on tap, take a few home,  maybe a bottle of wine or two!

We’ve got Owl’s Brew from New York coming in on the 21st for a package tasting to ironically remind us of our Texas roots with delicious hard iced tea. There’s nothing more Texan than drinking your tea with a little hmph and nothing more New Yorker these days than coming to Texas.

New to our tap wall this week, we’re adding options from a few area locals. 512 has us feeling ready to soak up the summer rays with their Citra Summer pale ale with tangerine and lime notes. AquaBrew is rounding out our Hip Hops with their perfectly balanced mosaic Skyscraper IPA. And Meanwhile is giving our tastebuds a hint of fall with their light and malty Czech Dark Lager. But if you ask Matt from California, he’ll tell you that a pint of Roughhouse’s Treeform IPA is the best way to cool down this week.

But what would summer be without a perfectly refreshing wine to carry you through your last few days of summer vacation? While we’re adding a lot of juicy wines to our wall this week, our house favorite is the Furlani Altopiano Orange without question. It’s light, floral, fruity, and funky orange wine in a super fun bottle that will add a perfect pop to any picnic, patio, or poolside.

Later, y’all.

The second entry in our Bottle Shop Series, Highball Drifter presents aromatics of caramel and vanilla, dried fruit and spice while hints of cherry and bitter orange peel whisk you away like a tumbling tumbleweed. Call us old-fashioned, but we think you’re going to love it. 11% ABV

Hacker Pschorr Munich Gold -“Munich Gold” closely resembles our Münchner Hell in terms of taste and mainly owes its popularity to a slightly higher original gravity and the malty note.

3 Nations Cozy Bavarian -We wait quite impatiently all year to brew this fantastic Lager. Respect for tradition at its finest. This historical style calls for a hefty, medium body, with assertive aromas of toffee, rich malt sweetness and a crisp, soothing finish. However, this would not be a true 3 Nations creation if we didn’t add our unique touch to it: behind the comfort of its sweet caramel and nutty flavors, you will catch a subtle, but powerful note of dark cherries that ties the whole experience together. 6.8% ABV

Jester King Ligra – Ligra, a barrel-aged wild ale with steamed rice, koji, cedar, and Golden Oyster mushrooms in collaboration with Texas Sake Company! They began by adding steamed Calrose rice to the mash and 160 pounds of koji to the primary fermentation in stainless steel. The rice and koji were provided by Texas Sake Company.

Xarmant is made from the highest quality, sustainably-farmed, estate vineyards from the verdant Amurrio valley in the Basque Country, close to the Bay of Biscay on Spain’s rugged, green northern coast.

G.D. Varja Claré J.C. Nebbiolo 2020– Claré JC is a unique wine, our take on the forgotten days of Nebbiolo, when it was enjoyed in its lighter and fresher garment. The winemaking protocol follows the 1606 writings of G.B. Croce, jeweler of the House of Savoia: the wine is bottled soon after the fermentation so as to retain a gentle off-dry finish and a lovely energy. The 2020 JC offers amazing drinkability and is one of the most transparent and vibrant vintages to date.

TASTING NOTES: Transparent, bright red ruby color. Aromas of cherries, cherry stones, wild strawberries and pomegranate nectar on the nose. The bouquet is completed by whiffles of wet stone, orange blooms and sweet spices. Amazing drinkability on the palate, with a lingering finish of wild berries and purple flowers.

Parducci Petite Sirah– Dark ruby in color, with aromas of cherry, blackberry, and chocolate, this big red’s spicy dark fruit flavors pair well with marinated tri-tip, mushroom risotto, and hearty stews.

Stilianou Great Mother – The most stubborn and tannic indigenous Cretan variety, Mandilari, in a flash-maceration vinification, named after Great Mother, the mother goddess of the ancient Minoans. Tasting Notes: Light red with nutty and forest fruit notes, and an unexpected sharp and salty palate 13% ABV

There are strange things happening everyday!

Well, howdy y’all. Things are dropping in your inbox a touch later than normal… I’ve found myself somewhat reflective today, searching for the right words. It genuinely shocks me that August has begun and we’re barreling through it just as we have this whole year. Perhaps it’s because I, and possibly you, am still left in a state of shock from the juxtaposition of last year’s detour to this year’s new normal?

So,  what’s that got to do with the store you ask? First off, we’ve rearranged the store to feel more open, airy, and welcoming. We want our service to be predicated on ease and graciousness. Everyone is welcome, and we all deserve good beer & wine. That’s the foundation for every interaction with every customer. Hopefully our new arrangement better helps to facilitate that.

As the world settles down from one in flux, so too has our team. We’re taking the month of August as an opportunity to dial in what we do best: bringing you the beverages you love. The goal is to elevate our service to an even higher standard as we move into the fall season. We are looking forward to bringing you more events, more beer, more wine, and more food options. It’ll be the WhichCraft you’ve come to love & enjoy, but even better!

Next Thursday and Friday we’ve got some friends stopping by the store! The fine folks from AquaBrew down in San Marcos will be in Thursday for a pint night. Then, on Friday, Austin’s own Blue Northern Seltzer will be in doing a package tasting of their portfolio. Also add Saturday, August 21st to your calendars for Owl’s Brew. It’s a Boozy Tea company from master tea sommeliers Jennie Ripps and Maria Littlefield. It’s fun. It’s new. Most importantly, it’s tasty. The rest of August is definitely going to satiate our thirst during this Texas summer heatwave.

Later, y’all.

Escandalo Semillón 2020 -Escandalo Old Vines Semillon showcases bright aromas of apples, jasmine, laurel, honey and toasted bread, that lead onto a soft and rounded palate, concluding with a long dry finish with a burst of fruit. Organic & Natural.

Escandalo began in 2013 as a project to highlight old, abandoned vineyards (60-200yo) around Colchagua, Itata, Maule, and beyond. Mauricio searches out these old plots & the work in the vineyards remains extremely traditional with no chemicals used in the vines (only organic treatments or plant and citrus extracts the farmers have used for generations) and all harvesting is done by hand.

In the cellar, everything is allowed to ferment spontaneously, and there is no fining or filtration, and only small additions of SO2 before bottling. These are honest wines with great purity and freshness, proving that these old vineyards and traditional methods are still the best way to show off the amazing viticultural history of Chile. 13.8% ABV

Prima Piuma Monferrato Rosso 2019 – A fantastic wine to pair with summer foods! The nose shows touches of pressed violets and cranberries. Well-structured and unique through the palate with ripe strawberries and silky cranberries. It’s a complex and fun wine without the complex price tag! 14% ABV

The grapes are de-stemmed and given a brief temperature-controlled maceration, fermented in stainless steel, and bottled early in search for tension and freshness. It is easy-drinking, food-friendly, and fun, with light, juicy berry fruit, inflected with vegetal and herbal notes. 13.5% ABV

Bass Note Blackberry Sage Sangria – Blackberry and Sage-flavored sangria. 11% ABV
