With the newest Lubbock movie theater close to opening late this month or early May, The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has announced plans for which beers will take up its 32 taps. When I visited the construction site last week, reps for the theater company told me they like to focus on beers made in our region. That's why we see so many Texas beers in this line-up, along with Wicket Beaver, which is made in Wolfforth.

I love beer - probably too much - and I'm quite pleased with this list overall. There are a few here that I haven't seen anywhere in Lubbock. 
It also looks like they'll be rotating out some of the taps with seasonal selections like Sam Adams Summer Ale and the Leinenkugel Summer Shandy.

The only question to be answered: can I get a punch card?

Behold, the list and a press release:

Lubbock, TX - Friday, April 11, 2014: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is excited to announce the opening tap list at its new Lubbock, TX location that will be opening soon at 120 West Loop 289 at North Slide Road. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is committed to highlighting local and regional beers in every market. The list in Lubbock features a wide selection of beer from Texas producers, including selections from Karbach, St. Arnold’s and the Hub City’s own Wicked Beaver Brewing Company.


“Wicked Beaver is excited to partner with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema here in Lubbock,” says Wicked Beaver Brewing Company President & Co-Founder, Michael Adams.  “They have made it a point to support our local brewery and are also very involved with the craft beer movement within the state of Texas.  We could not see a better fit for Wicked Beaver Brewing than the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lubbock.


In creating this beer menu, the upcoming theater, has created a balance of classic beers with additional beer selections that will be new to Lubbock residents. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lubbock will feature 32 taps, in addition to a wide selection of bottled and canned beer.  Of the 32 beers listed on the menu 26 are available for order and brought directly to the guests’ seat in the theater of which four will be featured seasonally from national and Texas craft breweries curated by the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lubbock.  There will be an additional six craft beers exclusive to the theater’s stand-alone bar, Glass Half Full.

Guests at the Alamo Drafthouse Lubbock can order beer from our team of stealthy servers before and during each film which will be brought straight to their seats; draft beer offerings are available by the pint and the pitcher. At the stand-along bar Glass Half Full, there will be a rotating special one-cask tap that will keep beer a temperature the featured brewery dictates.
