Greetings from Keystone Homebrew!

In this email:
South American Fresh Grapes and Juice
Place Your Hop Rhizome Orders
Vote Al Hazan to the AHA Governing Committee
Winemaker Competition

We’re taking pre-orders for fresh grapes from Argentina and grape juice from Chile. We expect the shipments to arrive in early May. We’ll need a deposit of $10 per box of grapes and $20 per bucket of juice. Don’t miss out! Order online today, and then call us with payment information for the deposit. Shipping is not available; pick up in Montgomeryville only.

Now is the time to get your hop rhizome orders in. We will be placing our order on Monday, and of course we’ll order extras, but the sooner you order the more likely you’ll get the varieties you want. Keystone Homebrew Supply offers one of the best selections of hop rhizomes anywhere. The hops are expected to arrive by early April. Remember: it’s easy, and it’s a great way to ensure availability of your favorite hops, year after year, right from your own back yard! Rhizomes can produce up to about 2 pounds of hops per year, and sell for just $4.95 each.

Al Hazan, a Keysone Homebrew customer living in the Lehigh Valley, is currently seeking election to the Governing Committee of the American Homebrewers Association (the AHA). Al is a BJCP-certified beer judge and a member of the Lehigh Valley Homebrewers, and has racked up many awards over his 18 years of brewing. We’d like to encourage all of you to join us in supporting Al in this endeavor. All AHA members can submit their vote online now via the link below. Not yet a member? Go online to sign up, or purchase a membership card at one of our stores.
