Flying Man Brewing Pint Night

flying-man-water-bomber

Take a break from the heat with Jeremiah from Flying Man this Friday night! We’ll be showcasing their Water Bomber (watermelon wheat) and Air Racer IPA. 

Help us welcome a new brewery to Austin next Friday! Hedgehog Brewing will be introducing their new IPA, Hoptimism.

We still have plenty of our new collaboration with Zilker Brewing Company, Blame It on My Juice! It’s a draft-only hazy, juicy IPA to help you cool off after a long day.

Starting in June, our new Brewery of the Month will be Austin Beerworks! Grab some six packs of their La Verdad, Einhorn, Pearl Snap, Peacemaker, Flavor Country, Fire Eagle, and Bloodwork Orange for $7.99 this Saturday. ABW is also introducing their custom Einhorn sixers with Tropical, Ginger Lime, and Sour Cherry variations…and they’re on sale for $7.99, too! Wowzers!

And finally, interested in joining the WhichCraft team? Love talking beer, coffee and helping customers? Then we’d love for you to join us! We’re losing one of our assistant managers. We need a person that has bar management experience, has a Certified Beer Server (CBS) or higher, and must be able to lift a keg. We look for people who are passionate about customer service, who are always active and on the go, not to mention love beer and coffee and look forward to talking with customers about both of these things.
