The best way to celebrate great American craft beer is with great American craft beer. Obviously. This Saturday, May 18th, we’re hosting a special “all cask” tour at the brewery. We’ve prepared some special, one-time only, variations. For beer enthusiasts, this event is not to be missed.
Cask-conditioned beer allows us to be a little more creative without having to release it on a large scale. A cask will usually have an interesting hop or added ingredient to play up the base beer. It’s just an opportunity to brew fun one-off versions of the already much-loved Lakewood beers.
If you’ve been to the brewery before, this event is a perfect opportunity to come back and try something new. If you’ve never visited, well, there’s no better time than American Craft Beer Week. Click here for all the tour information.
American Craft Beer Week, created by the Brewers Association, recognizes one of America's true culinary arts (brewing beer) and provides a platform for small and independent craft brewers (like us) to salute supporters (you) and connect with their local communities (North Texas).
It's all happening this Saturday, May 18th. The brewery opens at noon. We’ll be open until 3 p.m. Admission is only $10, which includes four samples of our tasty beer and a souvenir glass. Cash is preferable. Feel free to bring lawn chairs. Kids are welcome, but please keep an eye on them. No pets. Only human beer lovers.

We've got a friendly rivalry with the folks at Rahr and Son's brewery in Ft. Worth. Seems like we both have barrel aged beers out right now and The Libertine Bar is putting us head to head. The beer with the most votes gets tapped on February 4th. Rahr has been around a lot longer than us and has amassed a few ten thousand more fans, but i think we can give them a run for their money.

Even MORE importantly. Temptress has made the short list of BEST CRAFT BEER IN THE COUNTRY according to the FullPint.com. As of this posting we're in 12th place.

These are just for fun and we won't cry ourselves to sleep (for too many nights) if we lose.
Let's see what the LBC fans are capable of! UNITE! VOTE! That is all...
We will be releasing the Bourbon Barrel Temptress (the BBT) THIS SATURDAY! Yellow Belly food truck will be out as well as the Steve Waller Jazz Quartet. Be one of the first to taste this epic brew and keep the limited edition souvenir glass. Doors will open at high noon and we will pour the BBT until it is gone. So come early to get your taste. All our other beers will also be on tap so don't worry about going thirsty.
You'll also be able to get your picture taken with Santa on his throne of kegs. Feel free to bring the kids as long as you keep them on a short leash.
