It's National American Beer Day today (October 27th)- a day clearly worth celebrating. American beers have a long history; the oldest brewery in America that is still producing beer is Yuengling, which was founded in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1829! For a country that's only 245 years old, that's a pretty dang old brewery, and its awesome that you can grab a Yuengling at many bars and stores right here in Lubbock.

If you want to take this celebration to the hyper-local level, may I suggest celebrating at one of Lubbock's incredible brewpubs? We have several amazing options to choose from, all with their own unique atmosphere and brews, of course.

Here's a few options I know you'll love:

Mano Negra Brewing Company (2610 Salem Ave, Inside Cactus Alley)

Lubbock's first "nanobrewery" is tucked away in the oh-so charming Cactus Alley. They are currently offering ales (including a coffee ale made with locally roasted coffee), IPAs and a Hefeweizen. Mano Negra also has varieties of Sangria to try, too.

Two Docs Brewery (502 Texas Ave)

Two Docs is THE place to be during First Friday Art Trail, and has several special events throughout the year. Two Docs has pilsners, IPAs, Gose, bocks, lagers and a Hefeweizen. They also have an incredibly tasty non-alcoholic craft root beer.

Goodline Beer Company (2611 Boston Ave)

I was unable to confirm their current selections, but since Goodline has 20 taps, you're going to find a variety you're going to love.

Auld Brewing Company (515 Broadway)

Offering bocks, IPAs, ambers, ales, blondes, wheats, specialty stouts and even barley wine!

The Brewery LBK (1204 Broadway #104)

The Brewery LBK won Best Brewpub in the Country by USA Today last year and they are nominated again this year. I don't really need to say anything else- but I will say that the atmosphere of Brewery LBK is absolutely lovely. And the brews speak for themselves.
