Folks, we’re making America pretty great this weekend. To celebrate our nation’s birthday, we’re offering a Build-Your-Own discount at both of our locations. Here’s the rundown: 5% of all custom 6pks, 10% off all custom 12pks. Boom, that’s it. The beauty is in its simplicity. Offer runs tonight through the 4th.
And of course, it wouldn’t be July if we weren’t welcoming in a new Brewery of the Month. This month is…Austin Beerworks! And because we love every single one of their beers, we’re selling every single one of their 6 packs for $7.99. ALL. MONTH. LONG.
Finally, we have two fantastic events lined up at our South Lamar location. First, on Friday, William and Sheila with Hops & Grain will be by to sample their tasty brews, including River Beer. Wear your swimsuit, pick up some Austin beer, and hang out as we grill hot dogs. What’s more American?
Then on Saturday, Jeremy Soucey with Blue Owl will be in the shop, and we’re taking their Little Boss and creating five different infusions, along with sampling the base version. We’re calling it Little Boss Six Ways. Lineup includes raspberry, lemon ginger, lavender honey, blueberry, rosemary, and a mystery flavor. Come by to try these concoctions and learn how you can do this at home, too! Check the Facebook event for more details.

Clown Shoes Mango Kolsch – Crunkle Sam, tired of being a mere anomaly as a most refreshing summertime barley wine, targeted a German beer style and bastardized it, brewing a traditional Kolsch and adding sweet orange peel and all natural mango flavor.

Legal Draft Hung Jury Hefeweizen – Weissbier style made in traditional German fashion with yeast, yielding a banana and clove nose. 5% ABV / Arlington, TX / Availability: Good / SoLa Only
Guadalupe Texas Honey Ale – This creamy honey ale is incredibly smooth and easy to drink, with a perfect touch of honey. Anna Kilker, one of the owners at Guadalupe Brewing is a beekeeper and actively involved in teaching the importance of the sustainability of the bee population here in the great state of Texas. This passion has transferred to their commitment to give part of each sale of the Texas Honey Ale to the bee research facility at Texas A&M university. 7.3% ABV / New Braunfels, TX / BeerAdvocate 85 / Availability: Good
Tupps IPA – An India Pale Ale brewed with 100% Centennial hops with a Texas flair. 7.1% ABV / McKinney, TX BeerAdvocate 85 / Availability: Good

Independence Cucumber Redbud – The cucumber addition to their tart and lemony Redbud is present in the cool and clean aroma of this beer. It cuts some of the lactic tartness of the Berliner Weisse and delivers a lingering cucumber flavor on the finish, creating a truly unique beer. 5% ABV / Austin, TX / BeerAdvocate 82 / Availability: Decent / SoLa Only
Buffalo Bayou Raspberry Rotundone – This variation of Rotundone, their traditional Saison, is one of their simplest concepts and yet most complex flavor profiles. At first sip, while it’s still cold, this beer is all about the raspberries. The mouthfeel is a balance of not too tart & not too sweet, with the bubbly yeast brightening up the body. Then, as it warms, you’ll start to pick up a peppery spiciness on the nose and in the bright, bone dry finish. That’s coming from a combination of the esters off the yeast strain and two types of peppercorns. Let it breathe a bit (like you would a wine) and those same aromatics will react to the atmosphere in unpredictable ways. 9% ABV / Houston, TX / Availability: Decent
Martin House Parker County Peach – Just in time for the July 4th weekend, their newest micro seasonal release is Parker County Peach, a fruity and juicy beer with a mostly wheat base. They add fresh peaches and a little bit of Columbus hops to make this beer the perfect summertime treat. 5.2% ABV / Ft. Worth, TX / Availability: Good (Arriving Friday)
Jester King Cerveza De Mesquite – A farmhouse ale brewed with crushed mesquite beans foraged from the hill country around the Austin-based brewery that were added later in the boil and fermented in stainless steel. 5.6% ABV / Austin, TX / Availability: Decent (Arriving Friday at Mueller)
Jester King Beachtimez Sportzketball – Collaboration with Green Bench Brewing Co., this is a grisette-inspired farmhouse ale refermented on Texas loquats. 4.5% ABV / Austin, TX / Beer Advocate 86 / Availability: Decent (Arriving Friday at Mueller)

Sweetwater TripleTail – A tropical approach to the IPA style, TripleTail weaves juicy and bodacious hops with notes of papaya, pineapple, and passionfruit into this lush hop-forward IPA. 5.5% ABV / Atlanta, GA / Availability: Good
Odell Green Coyote – A Berliner Weisse brewed with tomatillos. It may sound a little out there, but just wait until you try it. 5.2% ABV / Fort Collins, CO / Availability: Good
Argus Apple Bomb – Like a dry wine with complex flavors. The apple character marries with the added fruit to create a balanced flavor. 6.2% ABV / Austin, TX / Availability: Good

Last Stand Wheat – This delicious wheat beer has banana and clove aromas and similar notes on the finish. Perfect for summer. 6.5% ABV / Austin, TX
Argus Apple Bomb – Like a dry wine with complex flavors. The apple character marries with the added fruit to create a balanced flavor. 6.2% ABV / Austin, TX
Pinthouse Pizza Bearded Seal – This is a stronger version of a traditional dry Irish stout. Somewhere between a true dry Irish stout and a big imperial stout that captures some of the intensity of a higher ABV beer, but remains drinkable and complex. 6.1% ABV / Austin, TX / BeerAdvocate 84
North Peak Thunder – Last year, North Peak Brewing Company released its first East Coast IPA called Stormy. An Oat IPA full of haziness unlike any other IPA in their portfolio.
