We Want Beer

You may not know it, but we’ve been debating for the past year: should we bring locally crafted beer to the shop? We know we’re your favorite neighborhood destination for meats, gifts and cheeses that are locally, ethically and sustainably sourced. We know beer would nicely complement our farm fresh selections, but this is a BIG endeavor. Upon asking you, our neighbors, the answer is resoundingly: YES!

So we’re working on it, and so far, so good.

You’ve helped us grow for the past two and a half years to the flourishing state you behold now. Heck, I remember when we didn’t even carry coffee! We’re still a long ways off from having the perfect product line, but we’ll keep doing our best guided by your requests. So that means our focus is now BEER - and let’s not forget some amazing local ciders as well.

We Need Beer

More precisely, we need equipment to house all these tasty suds. Your investment will help make possible:

  • A 3 tap Kegorator (you know, draft beer for growlers, so we can give you small batch stuff, not available in bottles)
  • A dedicated beer fridge (so you can buy six packs, or singles, nice and cold)
  • Additional shelving to hold more beer and cider…more beer and cider…

You Need Beer

As much as you want to support us, there must be something in return for you. There are plenty of deserving non-profits out there you could easily toss your hard-earned disposable income at (if so: JustFood.org or FarmSanctuary.org!)…

So, let’s talk.

Invest in us and you will actually SAVE money! You heard me right, your contribution will pay itself back in rewards worth more than the Washingtons you put in. Check it out the “Perks” listed just to the right. It’s a win, win for everyone.

We Thank You with Beer

I hope you are as excited about this as we are. We want to have this up and running by early spring. Thanks for all your support and just being awesome customers. It’s a pleasure to go to work every day because of you. If you can’t contribute now but would like to help, please spread the word; send the following links to friends and family (c’mon, why not).
