RJ SPAGNOLS RQ KIT: ALPINE FOOTHILLS ITALIAN BARBARESCO
We’re extending the deadline until tomorrow to pre-order this classic dark red wine from Italy’s renowned Piedmont region. RJ Spagnols describes this wine as having .rich, chewy, long-lasting flavors with spicy, ripe tannins and a wonderful balance. The kit includes dried Sangiovese grape skins and light-toasted American oak spirals for added complexity. Order by tomorrow, Saturday, at 5:00 PM to ensure that you don’t miss out! The kit will be available some time in April. $136.95 to order: http://www.keystonehomebrew.com/Zilron/catalog77_0.html

PHILLY BEER GEEK
Do you want to be rewarded for your beer obsession with $1,000 in cash and prizes? Then show up to compete in one of the preliminary competition rounds being held this weekend. Check out www.phillybeergeek.com for all the Beery details.

ORDER HOP RHIZOMES
New variety! – Perle
We will be placing our order for hop rhizomes this weekend. We’ll order extras, so you can always wait a few more weeks to place your order–but it’s not worth the risk! Don’t take chances with your beer; order today. We also have an exciting announcement: we’ll be offering Perle rhizomes this spring for the first time ever. Perle is a great all-purpose, clean bittering hop (typically 5.5% to 7.5% alpha), and has a pleasantly spicy aroma often featured in pilsners and other lagers. Order by phone or online: http://www.keystonehomebrew.com/Zilron/index.html?loadfile=catalog19_0.html
