Free Class/ New Merch/ Specials!
Several things happening as we approach Beer Week here in Beer City, USA (we all know it's not actually Grand Rapids).
First on deck, we've got our free beginner/intermediate brewing class coming up on Sunday May 17th. No purchase is necessary, but attendees are encouraged to have fun, help themselves to samples of last month's brew (our Dunkelweiss), and maybe learn a tad bit about how easy it is to make awesome beer at home with minimal equipment and time. Forget your grandpappy's "homebrew;" things have come a long way!!! We run our class from noon until 2ish. NO registration is required. Feel free to bring friends and family and perhaps a foldable chair; we've only got a few available and sometimes we pack the parking lot!
New Merch in da house! Well, there's kind of a lot, so I'll save some of it for later, or you can swing by to see what's up. Very exciting are the new Brewery Series kits from BrewCraft. BC partnered up with a few breweries across the country to make legit clones of famous beers. These clones were done in collaboration with the breweries themselves! Currently in stock are three offerings from Rogue: Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Brutal IPA, and of course Dead Guy! (We don't currently have these on the website, so call if interested in placing an online order).
We've also brought in a lot of new wines, including kits from RJ Spagnels (you asked for them, so we got 'em!!!).
Specials... We've got a limited supply of whole leaf hops on special right now; both are 2012 crop, but still in good shape. We've got 1oz packages of Centennial for only $0.75 apiece and whole pounds of Palisade for $5.00! Awww yeah.
Also, stay tuned for upcoming events. We have a Brewers Social Evening coming up in one week (the 27th) as well as serving and judging at Just Brew It and then a Memorial Day brew and bbq at Catawba Brewing in Biltmore Village. Hooray for awesomeness!
