‘Because Beer’ & Cyber Monday

HeyBrewtiful Cyber Monday feels a little like walking into a multi-tap bar with scores of beers to choose from or a liquor store with hundreds of selections.

There’s a lot of choose from. But since you can get 20% off today at the heybrewtiful Etsy shop it is our Cyber Monday pick.

We’ve added the postcard collection to our wish list. Here’s the description:

“Keep and frame your favorites and send the rest! The postcard pack offers you twenty different high-resolution prints at just under $2.50 per image–a great value for those looking to create an instant gallery worthy space for the bar or brewspace (frame not included).

“A mix of high quality color and black & white images, the collection easily serves as keepsakes worth framing–especially when inscribed with a message to someone you love (or love drinking beside).”

Saying thanks for Anchor Christmas Ale

Anchor Christmas Ale PosterNot long ago beer drinkers had to wait until the Monday before Thanksgiving to get their hands on the most recent Anchor Christmas Ale. And for more than a dozen years after Anchor first brewed the beer in 1975 it might have been the only American-made Christmas beer they could find. Brewing a special beer for the holidays is still another tradition the San Francisco brewery revived.

Times have changed. Holiday beers have been on the shelves since September. There are hundreds of festive choices.

But there’s still something special about opening a bottle of Anchor Christmas Ale on Thanksgiving, or maybe a different vintage or three. There’s a reason we’ve spread Anchor bottles across the top of the page.

Anchor produces a different label every year with a different tree, explaining “the intent with which we offer it remains the same: joy and celebration of the newness of life. Since ancient times, trees have symbolized the winter solstice when the earth, with its seasons, appears born anew.”

The brewery also sells a poster with all 40 labels on it, available at its online store.

Toast with beer?

Jelly made with beerIt’s a silly pun, but we can’t resist.

These jellies made with beer aren’t just for breakfast. Here’s the story from the website:

“The indulgence of craft beer meets handmade, small batch preserves in this set of beer jellies—including one each of IPA, Black IPA, Porter and Oatmeal Stout. Intrepid former archaeologist and hardcore foodie Nancy Warner moved to Vermont and, inspired by the bountiful local food and beer culture, transformed a variety of beers from notable local craft breweries into enticingly unique jellies. The traditional ingredients of beer (hops, malt and yeast) are rendered into jellies that balance malty sweetness with the hop profiles of the beer styles used: floral and spicy notes in the IPA and Black IPA, smoky-sweet in the porter, roasty and earthy in the stout. Add a distinctive touch to cheese platters, use them to glaze meats, mix them in cocktails and salad dressings, use them for irresistible baking (like peanut butter and porter muffins), or indulge in a grown-up pb&j!”

Only in Vermont.
