Holiday Closure/New Website/Specials/Class Schedule/etc.
Hellooooooo!!!! We are very sorry for having backslid on our blog posts; we know you follow them fervently ;)
First thing's first- WE WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY SEPT. 7TH FOR LABOR DAY
So, why the delay and what's going on? Earlier this summer, we visited the last frontier---Alaska---to check out the brew scene there. The verdict? When can we go back!? I'll devote a later blog to covering that trip.
In other news, we have yet another new website up and running now (the second new website of the year). We hope that you find this one even easier to use and more comprehensive. Please bear with us as we continue to add merchandise; it may take awhile to get everything loaded. If you don't see something you're looking for, give us a shout at 828.358.3536; we probably have it or can get it!
Currently, we have two really great specials going on. Now through Labor Day, we're running a special on used ball-lock kegs. Normally $80ea., they're on sale for $65ea. Buy multiples and get them for $60ea. (no further discounts apply to the kegs). For those who have already realized how easy and wonderful it is to make your own wine from one of our many winekits, we've got a deal for you. Buy any premium winekit at full price and receive a 6 gallon glass carboy for only $6! Yep. That's a steal. You get 30 bottles of premium wine and a deal on Italian glass!
If you haven't yet seen how easy and affordable it is to make your own wine, we're offering a beginners/fundamentals class on Sunday Sept. 13th. We have two class times- 12 to 2 and 3 to 5. Tickets are only $10, and you'll leave capable of crafting your own wine easily with limited time and equipment (you won't need to stomp the grapes a la Lucille Ball), plus you'll receive a free souvenir to take home.
Normally, our Free All-grain Brewing class is held the 1st Saturday of each month. Sometimes due to events or holidays, we have to postpone. Being that this is Labor Day weekend, we are moving the class to the second Saturday of September (that's the 12th). These classes are a great, informal way to see how to brew without extracts and ask the billion questions you have after trolling around on YouTube. We'll be drinking last month's brew (a session-IPA) and brewing up an Altbier. Class time runs from 1:30-4:30ish. Bring a friend and a chair; seating is limited.
Stay tuned for more great stuff, and stay up to date by joining our BREWSletter (you can enter your email into the field at the bottom of the page).
Cheers, Prost, and Salud!
