Capping off Stout Week, we’re tapping Saint Arnold Brewing’s French Press oatmeal coffee porter. We’ll also have a limited amount of French Press 6 packs to go.
TONIGHT (12/5) Firestone Walker stops by to pour two not-for-the-faint-of-heart ales. First up, the Double Jack, a dangerously drinkable double IPA clocking in at a whopping 9.5% ABV. Second up is the one, the only, the MOLE MERKIN bourbon barrel-aged milk stout. Inspired by the traditional Mexican dish, this warm & fuzzy brew features notes of cinnamon and cocoa nibs, as well as the kick of Pyua chili. Lastly, we have the Bretta Tangerine, a Berliner Weisse style wheat beer fermented with tangerines (plus a brightly funky blend of Brettanomyces). Trust us, you’re not gonna wanna miss this one.
Also, this Friday (12/6) the mad scientists behind Cedar Park’s staple brewing co., Whitestone stop by to pour frosty pints of their latest libation — Numb Numb Juice, an imperial hazy IPA made brewed collaboration with Flix Brewhouse. With its funny name and serious ABV, this 10% IPA was made with “a big batch of pineapple and orange juice, and is loaded with 4 different hop varieties. Did you by the beer? Why don’t you go ahead and keep the glass — free of charge.
Lastly, Just like the indie-pop band FUN suggests, our Brewery of the Month deal is carrying on! Enjoy Six-Packs from Independence, including their Up & Down coffee blonde, Native Texas Pilsner, Power & Light Session IPA, and Red Bud Berliner Weisse — each just $6.99.
