It’s the most wonderful time of the year (for craft fans, at least). That’s right…STOUT SEASON. On Saturday, October 5th, join our friends at Lakewood Brewing Co. as we tap a keg of Texas’s favorite nutty brew, the famous Peanut Butter Temptress Milk Stout! We’ll also be pouring pints of their Melon Baller IPA for all you hop heads out there. Get a free commemorative Lakewood glass when you buy a pour of either beer. (Draft only, bottle date TBA).
Cider fans, this one is for you! Stop by Bishop’s pint night TONIGHT, Thursday, October 3rd for a taste of something truly wild. Take the ever-popular Crackberry & ferment it on toasted coconut and you’ve got this cider company’s latest — Tiger’s Blood. We’ll be featuring pints of this delicious concoction as well as 6pks to go. Buy the cider, keep the glass.
If that weren’t enough, we have another treat in store for y’all. On Wednesday, October 9th, the kindly folks at Pinthouse Pizza stop by with a wet-hopped version of their award-winning Green Battles IPA in tow. These are hops so fresh, you’d swear they were picked just yesterday! On the lighter side, we’ll be pouring pints of their refreshing Lo Brau Lager, and Pizza Party Pils (an inspired collaboration with ABGB).
NEW BREWERY OF THE MONTH ALERT! Join us in welcoming WhichCraft’s October BOTM, Real Ale! Enjoy six-packs of Hans Pils, Devil’s Backbone Tripel, Axis IPA, and Fireman’s #4 Blonde, each just $6.99 throughout October.
