Sputnik! Sputnik! Sputniko!

We’re closing January with a cider event. Don’t miss Bishop tonight, Thursday January 31 from 5-8pm, as we feature their Crackberry on tap, along with samples of several canned delights.

Then kick off February on Friday from 5-8pm with Austin Beerworks. It’s a Sputnik Showcase, yo! We’ll have 2017 and 2018 Sputniks on tap, along with a fresh keg of El Sputniko. That’s a lot of tasty coffee oatmeal stout. Come help us make it a little.

And while you have one more day to pick up Real Ale 6pks of Hans’ Pils, Fireman’s 4, Axis IPA, and Devil’s Backbone for $6.99, our February Brewery of the Month is a good’un: NXNW. All month, pick up 6pks of Northern Lights, Red Zeppelin, and Zombie Dragon for $6.99. Yowza!
