Beer-focused Easy Tiger to launch a patio whiskey bar

Although Easy Tiger is known most as a beer bar, with a hefty list of craft beer and an inviting outdoor beer garden, the pub has always placed a focus on whiskey as well.

That’s only increasing with the launch of a patio whiskey bar this week that will offer visitors an even more curated selection of the dark aged spirit: everything from Old Potrero, a rye whiskey from Anchor Distilling, to Four Roses Small Batch 2014, a hard-to-find bourbon from the pre-Prohibition distillery Four Roses.

On Wednesday starting at 4:30 p.m., Easy Tiger is offering food and drink specials to celebrate, including $3 Manhattans and Old Fashioneds and a $12 bourbon flight.

The new menu includes a “shot board,” with a list of whiskeys ranging from $3 to $8, that people can order for quicker sipping. The whiskeys on it feature the likes of Elijah Craig 12 Year and Rittenhouse Rye, and although they’re all good options, whiskey lovers will want to spend more time perusing the rest of the menu, divided into bourbon, rye, Irish, Japanese, Texas, Scotch and outlying whiskey categories. It’s got something for every type of drinker — maybe even those who don’t fancy themselves whiskey fans.

Easy Tiger is located at 709 E. Sixth Street. For more information about the whiskey bar launch, visit www.facebook.com/EasyTigerATX.
