Scandalously Good Times — Lakewood’s Salted Caramel and BBT Temptress Stouts!

This Saturday (1/18) starting at 4 pm, things get sultry at our Taproom when Lakewood Brewing Co. graces us with two unique variants of the ever-popular Temptress Milk Stout. On tap, we’ll have their sinfully sweet Salted Caramel Temptress, as well as the mature, boozy Bourbon Barrel-aged Temptress. If these two stouts aren’t enough to knock your socks off, we are also sampling bottles of their Droid Rage imperial red ale and Cold Front winter IPA. Don’t forget: If you buy the beer we’ll let you keep the glass. 

Don’t forget about STOUT WEEK. From January 18th to the 25th WhichCraft will be your go-to spot for all things dark n tasty. We’re kicking things off with a Lakewood Salted Caramel and Bourbon Barrel Temptress pint night Saturday, January 18th, and will be releasing a special — secret — case of stout bottles from our cellar each day of the week (while supplies last). Stay tuned to our social media for each day’s unique release!
