Valentine Beer & Candy Pairing

Before we get into our events next week, let’s not overlook Friday’s event. Lagunitas drops by for a pint night of their Pils and Willetized Coffee Stout from 5-8pm. Gonna be a good time.

Then next week, it’s everyone’s favorite totally not Hallmark-manufactured holiday: Valentine’s Day. Because we here at WhichCraft are all romantics deep down, we’re throwing a beer and candy pairing from 5-8. Stop by anytime, no RSVP required. It’ll be $15 for four 5oz pours with an accompanying candy. Our very own Jody and Carlie will be curating the menu, so don’t miss this event.

And Monday, February 18, we’re kicking off this year’s first Style Night with a big, boozy, bodacious theme: Barrel-Aged Beers. Join WhichCraft and The Beer Museum as we’ll be tasting beers styles aged in a variety of different barrels. Aging beer in fresh french oak, bourbon, and rum barrels all add complex flavors to the beer itself. Tickets are $20 and will probably sell out, so get yours now here.

Don’t let the shortest month pass you by, keep buying our February BotM: NXNW. All month, pick up 6pks of Northern Lights, Red Zeppelin, and Zombie Dragon for $6.99. Yowza!

Lagunitas Willetized Coffee Stout – A Big, Dark, and Scary Barrel-Aged Beast. Their friends over at Kentucky’s own Willett Distillery have one kind of barrel: wood. And they put two things in them: Bourbon and Rye. Lagunitas was fortunate enough to get some of their Rye barrels, and  put their Imperial Stout in them. It’s a chocolatey, coffee-y, smoky, bourbon-y beast of a barrel-aged thing. Word. 12.9% ABV / Petaluma, CA / RateBeer 100
