This week, we at WhichCraft Beer Store are saying a fond farewell to stout season by hosting a special Goose Island Bourbon Country Brand Stout Tasting and release! We always work hard to bring you the best beer, and this time we were able to snag three cases of BCBS which we can’t wait to pass right on to you. Please join us this Saturday June 4th, for a 1:00pm tasting with Amy Afflerbach of Goose Island where we will be sampling Goose Island BCBS, Sofie and Matilda (probably not in that order). Sale of all three cases of BCBS will begin at 1:00pm as well, and there will be a limit of one bottle per person.
We’re excited to be one of several places in town to be selling the Austin Passbook, a local guide that allows for 2-for-1 deals at a whole host of food and event destinations in Austin. At $25, if you use it only twice it pays for itself! Find out more and purchase your book at our South Lamar location or click right here.
