The dining area and small patio alongside the Whole Foods at Kirby and W. Alabama have long hosted craft beer panels and events, but now those spaces will also be a destination to buy brews. Kirbside at Whole foods is the newest bar in the country from Whole Foods, which now has 95 in-store bars nationwide. While the bar has been quietly operating for a few days now, the official launch party will be January 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. when local brewery Karbach will take over the taps with their Fun Series and a few seasonal brews. Local condiment company Bravado Spice, which now has its products on Whole Foods' shelves, will also be on hand to top cheese plates with different salsas. After this launch party, Kirbside's eight taps will always rotate at least two to three local breweries on pre-assigned lines. Here's an image of the interior and of the weekly specials, by day:

· Pint & Pizza Monday - Grab a slice and a pint for $5 from 6-8pm
· Hump Day Happy Hour - Enjoy rotating happy hour deals – $3 select pints, $4 select wines by the glass, and food specials
· Local Brew Friday - $3 local pints and half off local cheese plates from 3-6pm
· Mimosa Sundays - $3 mimosas from 12-2pm
· Kirbside bar presents Zoo Beats - On the last Thursday of every month from 6-8pm, all bar sales will benefit the Houston Zoo's conservation efforts
· All Other Opening Reports [-EHOU-]
