- Partner/Employee Needed!
- Recipe Specials for December
- Books Make Great Holiday Gifts
- Gift Certificates Make Holiday Shopping Easy
In case you hadn't heard yet, Craig Baker is moving to Northern California
at the end of the year. This means that we need someone who can work
on Wednesdays and Fridays. These are the days we receive deliveries,
so if we can't find someone to work them, we may have no choice but
to close the store. Extra money is involved, since the partner who takes
those days puts in many more days than the rest of us.
Recipe Specials for December
In February, Pacific
Gravity will feature English ales. These are among our most popular
recipes, so take advantage of these special prices and bring the results
to February's meeting. Our first special is Notting
Hill Pub Bitter. This is a fine example of an Ordinary Bitter and
while it's usually priced at $20, during December it's only $16! Next
up is Burton Pale Ale.
If you like Bass Ale, this should be a favorite, especially since it's
only $22 this month. Brown
Derby Ale is our version of Northern Brown Ales, like Newcastle
Brown. It too is on special for $22. Last, but not least is Old
Perpendicular. If you like Old Peculier you should give this one
a try. It'll cost you just $30 through December.
Books Make Great Holiday Gifts
If you're looking for gifts for a brewer, books should be at the top
of your list. We have a wide array, ranging from books that are good
for beginners, like Homebrewing Vol. One and How to Brew to books for
the advanced brewer, like Designing Great Beers, Farmhouse Ales and
the new How to Brew like a Monk. We've also got books which go into
great detail about specific styles, like Pale Ale, Stout, Continental
Pilsner and Porter. And if you're interested in pairing beer with food
we've got the best book ever written on the subject: The Brewmaster's
Gift Certificates Make Holiday Shopping Easy
If you've got a brewer on your shopping list but have no idea what
to get, we've got a solution for you: gift certificates. You can buy
them in any amount and let the recipient decide what to buy with them.
