WhichCraft Tap Room in Mueller is happy to be hosting The Beer Museum for a special Pop-Up event this Saturday from 1-4pm. The Beer Museum started as an overgrown collection of bottles and a true passion for craft beer. It has now evolved into a mission to diffuse beer knowledge and actual beer to all who thirst for it. That’s why the three founding members have spent years researching, collecting, and imbibing, so that they can boil down the history of beer to its true essence and share it with you. During this special exibit, you can try free samples of different stouts and porters while discussing the history and significance of those styles. As part of this event, WhichCraft Tap Room will be tapping Oskar Blues Barrel Aged Ten FIDY. To learn more about The Beer Museum and the work they do, please visit their website.
