HOP RHIZOMES ARE COMING!
We've ordered hop rhizomes from the Pacific Northwest and should be receiving them before the end of the month (hopefully this week!). 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!
JUST ARRIVED! MESQUITE SMOKED MALT!
We have just received shipment on Briess's new smoked malt grain: Mesquite Smoked Malt. Nutty & sweet! A true delight for Texans! Click here for information!
NEW FOR 2015: UPGRADED WINE & BEER MAKING KITS!
We've been mulling upgrading our basic wine & beer making kits for a while now. At the end of December, we decided to pull the trigger. Here's the skinny: on our 5 Gallon Concentrate & Fresh Fruit and 6 Gallon Boxed Wine Winemaking Kits, we have replaced the standard racking cane with an Auto-Siphon and added both a Bottle Filler & a Bottle Brush. On our Basic Single Stage & Double Stage Beer Kits, we have merely replaced the standard racking cane with an Auto-Siphon. Over the past number of years, we have found the Auto-Siphon to be enormously popular, so we thought the time was right to make these upgrades. Of course, we've adjusted the price of the kits to reflect these upgrades, but we have given you the option to downgrade from the Auto-Siphon to the standard racking cane and save the difference in the price. We honestly do not expect to have a lot of takers on this offer, but you never know. . . Anyway, we think you will appreciate the upgrade.
SWEET DEAL ON RECYCLED KARBACH BOMBERS!
We have just come into 100 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!
