We have been accepted as 1 of about 1700 small businesses nationwide to compete for FedEx‘s Small Business Grant Contest.
Please help push us through to the Top 100 businesses for a chance to be granted 1 of the 10 awards, by voting everyday until March 17. The more votes and buzz we generate the better chance we have of catching the judges attention.
If we’re lucky enough to be awarded a grant we would invest the proceeds to electrify our brew tree, add a stainless steel sink with plumbing for ease of use in the brew class area, upgrade our scale with programmable capabilities, diversify our product offerings, stock higher end brew equipment, and lastly replace our inefficient coolers.
Thank you for your support, because we can’t do it with you!
Chris and Sheri Houdesheldt

If only it would be warm enough for shorts on Sunday. However, we’ll be dreaming of Hawaii while Sheri brews a clone of Kona’s Cast Away IPA with an All-Grain recipe using the Brew in a Bag technique! Class is scheduled to start at 11:30am and there are still spots available. Tell us Aloha and get your spot reserved.
10 inches of snow can’t keep us away. If your out playing in the snow also, stop on by. We’ll be kegging the ESB about 11:30. If your interested in kegging, Chris will be showcasing the process.
Tonight January 28th starting at 7:30, bring any of your home brew or any other packaged beer that you would like to trade. We’re hosting the event in store as a way for home brewers and beer connoisseurs to come together to trade beer for beer. You can trade in any ratio that works for both parties, but NO MONEY can be exchanged in the store. Hopefully we can kick our 1st beer swap off with lots of exciting brews and we’ll see you tonight!
It’s hard to believe that it’s going to be another nice winter weekend in Iowa! We’ll be at the store to hook you up, so you don’t miss the chance to take advantage of the weather by brewing this weekend.
We’ve added several new pieces of hardware to our inventory! Hardware for kettles, mashtuns, kegging, and draft systems. As always, if there’s a particular piece of hardware your wanting, please contact us.
