We have some terrific, limited-time-only wine and beer bottle specials right now that you don’t want to miss!

Nittany Ale Bottles: BUY 2, GET 1 FREE: These unique 12oz royal blue bottles feature a screen-printed white Nittany Lion paw. They are great for Penn State fans to bottle their favorite beers, and for Penn State haters to smash in their driveways. At $8.95 per case of 24 bottles, and buy 2 get 1 free, they are also great for anyone who just wants really cheap bottles! The sale is in effect now in Montgomeryville, and starting Wednesday, April 28, in Bethlehem.

Transition Bordeaux Wine Bottles: We’ve just received a pallet of attractive 750ml pale green transition wine bottles, available for just $10.95 per dozen (our best price on wine bottles) while supplies last. Supplies won’t last long, so hurry! It’s especially good timing if you need to empty your fermenters to make room for the Chilean wine coming in May.

Come share a few with the Lehigh Valley Homebrewers tomorrow (Tuesday, April 27) at 7:30 PM at the Steelegaarden, across from our Bethlehem store. Meet other brewers, taste some homebrews, and bring your own to get feedback. We hope to see you there! You can find details about the club at

Eight days and counting to National Homebrew Day! Grab your brewing equipment, including a propane burner, and come celebrate at one of our stores. You can brew your favorite recipe in the parking lot behind our Montgomeryville store, or join in a Bourbon Barrel Brew at the Chris Becker family farm in Bethlehem (call our Bethlehem store for the recipe and directions). If you don’t have your own propane burner, we do sell them for $82.95, and spectators are always welcome at these events. If you can’t make it to either place, be sure to brew anyway! There may be a local club or a big brew in your area, or you can celebrate on your own. Visit our Web site for rules and more information:

Ferment on!
