We have some big events happening his week at the Tap Room, folks. First, tonight (Thursday, 8/9), we’ll be sampling ABW’s Einhorn mit Schuss. That means “with syrup!” Einhorn with various syrups! Don’t miss it. Then, on Friday at both locations, we’re premiering a new bottle from a new brewery to Austin: B-52 Brewery. At 6pm, we’ll be releasing their Summer Wardrobe hazy IIPA. It’ll go quick, so show up early and pick up a single or 4-pack.
And of course, keep picking up 6 packs of our August BotM: Brazos Valley Brewing. All month long, we’ll be offering their Mama Tried IPA, Willin’ Mosaic Pale, 7 Spanish Angels, and Two-Step Pils for…$5.99. Holy cow!
Finally, you always wanted to work at your favorite local bottle shop: talking beer, selling beer, and sometimes sampling said beer? Now’s your chance! We’re looking for someone – or someones – to work part-time at both of our locations. Prior retail experience is helpful, though not necessary, but you must have a love of beer (and coffee) and be helpful, outgoing, and willing to learn.
