Greetings from Keystone Homebrew,

In this email:
Update on Fresh Grapes and Juice
Wine Tastings
SALE: #45 Wooden Ratchet Press
Upcoming Brewing & Cooking Classes
Keystone Hops Homebrew Club Meeting

We’ve received word that the rest of our premium grapes from Washington State and Lake County will be shipped by this weekend, and will hopefully arrive at our Montgomeryville store by Friday, October 16. Zinfandel grapes from Brutocao Vineyards are expected to be picked and shipped early next week, so they they won’t be far behind. The Brutocao Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will be staying on the vine just a bit longer. Of course, if you have any on order, we’ll contact you as soon as they arrive.

If you haven’t ordered yet, it’s not too late. These upcoming shipments will contain the best grapes of the season, and we’re already selling out of a few varieties. If you hurry, there’s still time to get your orders in and make some superb wine this season! Call our Montgomeryville store to reserve your grapes, or check out the link below.

Our stocks of Central Valley juice and grapes are running dangerously low for all of you procrastinating winemakers. We’re selling out much more quickly than in past years, and it’s hard to predict whether we’ll have any left after this weekend. Everything is being sold now on a first come, first served basis, so hurry in to Montgomeryville or call us to put a full deposit down over the phone.

Montgomeryville: Sunday, October 18, 12:00 PM
Bethlehem: Friday, October 23, 5:00 to 8:00 PM
Come enjoy a fall afternoon with homemade wines, snacks and the company of fellow winemaking enthusiasts. These will be our final wine tastings of the season, and will be held rain or shine, so don’t miss them! All homemade wines and meads are welcome, and everyone who brings one gets a $5.00 coupon to the store (limit one per person). The Montgomeryville tasting could also double as a great opportunity to pick up some of the superb grapes we’re expecting to receive from Washington State and Lake County. Don’t take a chance; reserve in advance!

We have one #45 ratchet-style wooden basket press (200-lb. capacity) in stock at our Montgomeryville store, and we’re putting an unbelievable $430 price tag on it! That’s a discount of nearly 40% off retail value, with an even greater chance to save . if you like grapes, that is. For every box of grapes you buy with the press, we’ll take another $10 (up to $70 maximum) off the already crazy low sale price of this enormous press that takes up too much space in our tiny store. Come take it out of our way today!
