We got an exciting anniversary ale in this week that we thought everyone might want a heads up about – Shmaltz He’Brew Jewbelation Sweet 16.  Straight from their press release, “A complex, enormous brown ale with a dynamic labyrinth of multi-layered flavors, Jewbelation Sweet 16® is brewed with 16 malts, 16 hops and soars to 16% alc.”

This past week had another successful tasting featuring a local favorite, Thomas Creek.  Our next tasting will be on Tuesday, October 30th.  This time, we’ll taste the taps like the early days.  We’ve tapped some killer stuff recently, and thought people might enjoy a chance to try something they’re unsure about.  As per usual, drop in from 5-7PM and make sure you can try some of the great selection.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!

Thanks again,

This past week was another great tasting, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone again this upcoming Wednesday.  It’s still 5-7PM, we’ve just moved forward one day to see if it’ll help more people be able to come and enjoy the event.  There will be a few surprises on the tasting list, so you’ll have to come see what we’ve got waiting for you.This week has been a busy one for us.  We brought in one of our biggest selections of new labels for the week, and we’ve finally had our sign put up!  It has been far more of an adventure than we expected, but we’re extremely satisfied with the result.  Pictures have been put up on our Facebook page in case you can’t make it here to see it in person.

Our rewards program is off to a great start.  From now on, if you’ve got a question about what you bought during a previous visit we can look it up for you as long as you’re part of the program.  We’ll also have the system notifying us of your rewards so you don’t have to keep track of it yourself.  There’s no charge to join, so make sure you jump in!

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!

Thanks again,

We hope everyone enjoyed their chance to try Rogue’s Bacon Maple Ale, along with a few other selections from Rogue.  Dad’s Little Helper made a nice guest appearance to remind everyone just how great it is.  Next week will bring us a selection of reds from a few different breweries, we hope you’re ready!  Tuesday, 10/16, from 5-7PM – be there.  The tasting after that will be moving to Wednesday, so be prepared.

New glassware from Stone arrived this week – an IPA glass, and an Imperial Pint glass.  Come in and pick one up while we’ve still got them.  We’re planning on picking up a few more specialty glasses as time goes on.  We also added a Lindemans lambic gift box to our selection – it comes with one framboise, one pomme, and one glass.

Our rewards program will be starting up shortly – be on the look-out for a form in-store that’ll have a few things for you to fill out to get enrolled.  We hope people will like what we’re starting out with, and the ability to have their past purchases checked to help select a greater variety of beer to try.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!

We’ve been happy to hear all of the great feedback from Sippin’ in Simpsonville, and we’re glad to hear that everyone had a great time.  We hope to be able to sponsor and supply the beer for a similar event again!

Our next tasting is this upcoming Tuesday, 10/9/12, and we’ll be featuring a selection from Rogue.  It starts at 5PM, and will run until 7PM as per usual.  We thought it might give people a chance to try a few of the Rogue’s they might not have tried yet.  We’d also like to go ahead and let people know that we’ll be having another tasting on 10/16/12 featuring red ales.  It will also run from 5PM to 7PM, like our others.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!
