FEATURED BEER OF THE MONTH

NOVEMBER

  • Community Public Ale: Public Ale’s name is an ode to a sessionable style that not only has been commonly found in English public houses for centuries, but can be enjoyed today by everyone within our Community. In reverence to the best ESB’s of England, we brew it with nearly all English ingredients: 100% English malts, a blend of English, German and American hops, our house ale English yeast strain and of course our own crystal clear, filtered water.
  • Lakewood Punkel: Is there a better fall treat than pumpkin pie? Nope, which is why there are so many pumpkin beers out there. But we prefer a beer that compliments a slice of pie rather than drinking a slice of pie, which is why ours is based on the classic dessert, not the gourd. Our twist: Punkel has no pumpkin. It’s a dark, malty German lager enhanced by cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ginger. Perfect for weather only Texans would consider “fall.”
  • Bishop Crackberry Cider: Cranberry & blackberry – stripped of all other nonsense. Crackberry is a perfect pairing of flavors tart and sweet, joining forces to create a colorful, well-balanced cider. Frankly, we’re over the moon for it.

DECEMBER

  • Sam Smith Winter Welcome: Throughout history, beer of somewhat higher alcohol and richness has been enjoyed for the winter holidays, when old friends get together to enjoy the season. Wassail, a festival to celebrate winter and the beer that goes with it, predates the Christian era. Winter Welcome is vintage-dated with a special label each year, and was first shipped to the US in 1990 – it was the first imported winter seasonal beer. Serve in a traditional Sam Smith tulip or nonik glass for the holidays.
  • Shiner Holiday Cheer: Holiday traditions come in all shapes and sizes. This old-world dunkelweizen is brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans – perfect for cracking open in front of a crackling fire.
  • Alaskan Cranberry Tart: This American tart-style ale exhibits cranberry fruitiness in harmony with malt, wheat, hops, and spruce tips.  Sitka spruce tips come from the tiny town of Gustavus, about 80 miles from Juneau, where the whole community turns out in spring to harvest the bright green, lemony shoots. Their fresh, berrylike – almost bubblegum – flavors are balanced by the tartness of cranberries, inspired by the low and high bush cranberries that have been considered a delicacy in Alaska for centuries
