Finally went to the Crafthouse location in Arlington yesterday and it was pretty cool. Great selection and some rare cans - Canadian Boreale entries!
Talking to the manager, he said that they broke off from World of Beer which was in that same spot a few years back and went solo when WoB closed a bunch of locations due to spreading their resources too thin.
Then they apparently decided to go for another try, and recently opened up a new WoB like two blocks from the original, that has now become Crafthouse? Strange.
Visited both yesterday and needless to say, the Crafthouse was a million times better. It’s pretty difficult to have about 50 taps as WoB and I’ve only not tried like two of them. I’m not how successful they will be in the tick-driven craft beer world of today…
Not that I don’t wish them luck - the more beer places the better. Especially with no sign of Churchkey opening back up again.
