NATIONAL HOMEBREW DAY SET FOR MAY 2nd!
We had a blast last year hosting National Homebrew Day (always the first Saturday in May!). Lots of folks showed up to brew, others to watch. At our Stella Link location, we hosted a "Pros Versus Joes" event with Karbach's celebrity brewer Eric Warner going head to head with the Foam Rangers own Kyle Jones (The Winner!). We're doing it, again! We're going be pitching the Big Tent and have lined up none other than "Pro" Sean Spiller, former DeFalco's employee and current assistant brewer at Buffalo Bayou Brewing to take on Foam Ranger Robert "Joe" Brown. And, as the Foam Rangers have a weakness for barleywine, that is what will be the style of the day for these two! We'll have some beer brewed up for the event and we imagine that Sean will not come empty handed from BuffBrew! Our Clear Lake location will also be hosting a group brew-in with the help of the Space City Spargers! And, for the first time ever, we'll be hosting a simultaneous "Pros Versus Joes" event. Clear Lake will pit "Pro" Nathan Deck of Brews Brothers in Galveston) versus The Spargers own Bill "Joe" Arning. They'll be going toe to toe with Saisons. In order to encourage others to join in on the fun, we are offering 15% off ingredients to anyone brewing on site that day (and, it doesn't have to be barleywine or saison , either!). We'll have more details coming regarding special discounts and offers!
HOMEBREWING SEMINAR SET FOR CLEAR LAKE LOCATION!
Since opening our Clear Lake City location, we have received a lot of requests for homebrewing classes down in the Bay Area. The time has come to make this happen! Mark your calendars! Sunday, May 17, from 4 pm - 8 pm we will be hosting our first ever accelerated Introduction to Homebrew Seminar! We will be brewing a batch of beer, syphoning another batch, and bottling yet another batch. And, as this is thirsty work, we'll be tasting homebrew along the way! The fee for this seminar is only $25. Space is extremely limited. Sign up today! Either pay online or drop by our Clear Lake Location at 16532 Sea Lark 77062 (by Molly's Pub).
COMING LATER THIS MONTH. . . WORLD VINEYARD 1.65 LITER WINE KITS (FOR ONE GALLON OF WINE)
Interested in learning to make great wine, but tight on space &/or budget? One gallon, 5 bottle wine kit is the perfect started size for consumers wanting to try their hand at winemaking with a minimal investment of money & space. The good folks at Winexpert are releasing the following kits later this month:
World Vineyard Moscato 1.65L Wine Kit (California)
World Vineyard Chardonnay 1.65L Wine Kit (Australia)
World Vineyard Pinot Grigio 1.65L Wine Kit (Italy)
World Vineyard Pinot Noir 1.65L Wine Kit (California)

HOP RHIZOMES ARE HERE!
We've ordered hop rhizomes from the Pacific Northwest and they have arrived! This year we've selected thirteen different varieties from which to choose: Cascades, Centennial, Chinook, Crystal, Kent Goldings, Mt. Hood, Northern Brewer, Perle, Sorachi Ace, Sterling, Tettnanger, Willamette, Zeus. You might consider trying your hand at hop farming!
SUPER DEAL ON BOTTLE CAPS!
We have purchased nearly a third of a million Ft. Bend Brewing Company bottle caps and are offering these at half the going price for our regular oxygen-scavenging caps: $2.99 per canful (180 - 200 caps)! Because we have so many, we are offering them in bulk for even cheaper pricing: $19.99 for 10 canfuls (about 2,000 caps). If the color of the bottle cap is no big deal to you, save 50% or more off your cap costs!
SWEET DEAL ON RECYCLED KARBACH BOMBERS!
ALMOST GONE! We have just come into 500 cases of rinsed, unlabeled Karbach 22 oz. bombers. These were short-fill, tap room, etc. bottles that they rinsed and saved. Now you can get these for $7.99 per case, half the price of new 22 oz. bottles. While supplies last! Click here!

P.S. By the way, the sign on the photo has been "photoshop-ed". Any signage must comply with local civic association deed restrictions, so we're flying under the radar now with an indoor banner by one of our windows and a re-purposed banner outside. One more hurdle to clear!
