We’re excited to welcome Kolby from Hub City Tap House: Home of Ciclops Cyderi to Crafted on Thursday, April 30th!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our COAST tap takeover last night!  We loved getting to host Drew while sharing some fantastic beer with everyone.  If you couldn’t make it out last night, we’ve still got a little bit of the Boy King and Blackbeerd left for growler fills but they won’t last long.

We’ll be open normal hours on Easter Sunday, so stop in any time from 1-5 PM for your last minute beer needs.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, April 9th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting of different canned beers!  With spring finally arriving, we wanted to help people get prepared for their outdoor excursions and adventures.  More and more breweries are starting to can their beer these days so there are always some new options available.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Kolsch tasting this past Thursday evening!  With spring weather finally starting to tease us, this German-style Blonde Ale makes the perfect companion for a day in the sun.  All three of the offerings we had on hand made strong showings but the classic Reissdorf blew the competition away thanks to incredible drinkability.

The fantastic COAST Brewing out of Charleston will be in the store on Friday, April 3rd, from 5-7 PM for a tap takeover featuring some of their best brews, including the famous Boy King Double IPA. Drew will be here to talk about all things COAST and we’ll have a few pint glasses on hand to give away with growler fills. This is one event you won’t want to miss.

If you’re looking for a new beer for your weekend make sure you stop in and check out the 2015 Oskar Blues Gubna.  This spring and summer Imperial IPA has always been a favorite around Crafted and this year they’ve kicked the recipe up a notch.  Gubna 2015 has been dry-hopped with El Dorado, Comet, and Chinook for a dank and citrusy nose with a bitter but smooth finish.  We don’t think you’ll be disappointed with the changes!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our third beer & cheese pairing event last night!  We had a great turnout and huge successes with all of the pairings.  Green Man Porter with blue cheese was the most popular of the night due to how well the two complement each other.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Belgian IPA tasting this past Thursday!  We’ve been huge fans of the style ever since our first Green Flash Le Freak.  The Musketeers Troubador Magma impressed with its delicate balance of hops and true Belgian Tripel characteristics.

Join us this upcoming Friday, March 20th, from 5-7 PM for our third beer & cheese pairing event!  We’ve got several great pairings lined up for the evening and we think people won’t be disappointed.  We’ll feature a Porter, a Biere de Garde, a Sour, and an IPA.  Cheeses will stay a secret until the event – we don’t want to ruin the surprises!

After several requests for another bottle share Sunday, March 22nd, seemed like the perfect time! Just like last time, the admittance fee is a bottle.  We aren’t looking for you to bring all of your DANK WHALEZ, just a beer you’d enjoy sharing with others.  We’ll close at 5 PM that evening and begin tasting shortly afterward.  Space will be limited so RSVP on Facebook or to us soon!
