We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and a safe Black Friday.  We’re currently in the midst of Small Business Saturday, and wanted to say thank you for all of the support these past few months.  We appreciate all of our customers, and are excited to continue growing and providing you with some amazing beer.

There will be no tasting this upcoming week.  Instead, they will continue on Wednesday, December 5th at our usual 5-7PM.   We’re looking forward to having everyone here again.

Even though this week was Thanksgiving, we still brought in some fantastic new beer for your enjoyment.  Cold Mountain from Highland finally arrived and we have a keg of it on tap.  It won’t last long at its price, so hurry in and get it while you still can.  We also got a Shmaltz He’Brew gift pack that contains Jewbelation 16 and their Reunion ’12 with Terrapin.  If you want to get your hands on more of the Reunion, this will be your last chance to get it from us.

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 had another great tasting this past week.  WhichWich came out and supplied some samples to go with our goodbye to fall.  We’ve been holding onto a keg of Southern Tier Pumking for it, so come and get it while it lasts!  Since this week is Thanksgiving, there will not be a tasting.  On Thanksgiving Day, we’ll be shortening our hours down to 11-3PM just in case you need something last minute for your get together.  We’ll be continuing our normal schedule on December 5th from 5-7PM.  We hope you’ll come join us and continue to make them a success!

Our collection of winter beer is starting to grow.  We’ll be introducing more labels every day, so make sure you check our Twitter or Facebook for updates.  There are still a handful of fall beers remaining if you’re looking for a pumpkin or marzen for the tail end of the season.

If you missed the announcement last week, we’re having a sale on Full Sail Session Black Lager.  Come pick up a discounted half case box.  We’ll be unable to get any more Full Sail soon, so pick up a few extra while you still can.

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 got another great tasting coming up for you this Wednesday 11/14 from 5-7PM.  We hope everyone is ready to come out, because we’re going to have WhichWich supplying samples.  We’re also going to be tapping the Southern Tier Pumking keg that we’ve been holding on to.  It probably won’t last long, so this could be your last chance to get some for the year!

We will not be having a tasting the week of Thanksgiving.  We know everyone will be busy with family, and thought that it would be the best decision.  On Thanksgiving Day, we’ll be shortening our hours down to 11-3PM just in case you need something last minute for your get together.  Every other day of the week will be unaffected and will keep normal business hours.  Normal tastings will resume the week after.

We also wanted to let everyone know that we’re having a sale on Full Sail Session Black Lager.  Come in and get a half case for $16.50.  We’ll be unable to get any more Full Sail soon, so pick up a few extra while you still can.

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’ll be having our tasting on Wednesday 11/7 so we don’t interfere with voting.  We’ll taste three different beers from Aviator, so make sure you drop by from 5-7PM and try some!  We’ll be sticking with Wednesday again the week after, so come out 11/14 as well.  Last week was a return to the taps.  For once, there was no clear winner because no one was willing to make a decision.

After waiting for what seemed like forever, we’ve finally received more Lagunitas.  They had a few issues thanks to their new brewery, but it looks like they’re back in business.  Be sure to try some of their great brews while we’ve got them.

It’s becoming time for winter seasonals, so you’ll have to come get any Octoberfest or pumpkin beer you still want sooner rather than later.  We’ve still got a small selection remaining, but it’s depleting day by day.

We just tapped a pilot brew from Highland called “Wolfden.”  Come try it while we’ve got it – you might not get another chance!  We have no idea if it’ll ever show up again, or where it might appear.

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!
