Lubbock is creating the perfect brew and you need to get in on the action. What better time than the week of March 17th to plan and execute the perfect 806 brew crawl? From downtown views to the “Hub City’s” newest hidden gem, check out these five local spots below to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day the right way. It’s not the luck of the Irish that makes Lubbock’s craft beer taste this good, we really are just a master of our craft.
Two Docs Brewing Co.
502 Texas Ave.
Start out your weekend of stouts at Two Docs Brewing Co. This local brewery was started by a doctor and a veterinarian as a hobby. Now, their craft is a mainstay in the Cultural Arts District. We recommend the Buddy Hoppy IPA, Two Docs Bock and Chilton Gose. Stop by on the March 13th from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. for the St. Paddy’s Day Festival featuring local food trucks and vendors, live music and the releasing of a new, special beer.
The Brewery LBK
Down the street from the Cultural Arts District sits The Brewery LBK inside the Pioneer Pocket Hotel. Named one of the Top 15 Brewpubs in US by USA Today, The Brewery LBK pours seasonal craft brews and regulars like a New England style IPA called Lieutenant Dan and a Belgian Tripel, Kerb Crawler. Pair one of these frosty beers with the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich or stop by for weekend brunch!
Triple J Chophouse and Brew Co
1807 Buddy Holly Ave.
Continue the crawl downtown by making your way to the Depot District. As a long standing hot spot for brews in the “Hub City”, Triple J serves an American Amber style Ale called the Raider Red and a Vienna Style Lager named Dos Czechies. Make sure to order the Choppy Bob Nachos with your beer and catch a game and live music at the bar.
Mano Negra Brewing Co.
2610 Salem Ave.
Nestled in Cactus Alley, the owner of Mano Negra first started brewing in his home in Puerto Rico. After deciding to move to Lubbock, the brewery came to be when the owner noticed an opportunity to connect the Lubbock community with craft beers through the first nano brewery in Lubbock!
The Plains Brew Co.
515 N F M 179
This small hyper-local microbrewery focuses on “plain good beer” and an authentic, friendly atmosphere. Whether you prefer to pick up a 6-pack from the local grocery store and enjoy a night cap to finish off your day of beer, or make your way to the brewery just 20 minutes from the heart of the city, this brewery is strictly West Texas. Nothing feels more authentic to Lubbock than sitting on the patio and enjoying a cool can of Amber Beer.
