Staff Pick: June

To read more about what our staff pick bottles are all about, head here.

For May we decided to let our own blogger, social media maven, beer-tender and OCD-freak, ME: Tara Fulps; pick a beer for you.

As a girl from Portland, Oregon who’s been dating a brewer for the past five years (who used to work for Full Sail Brewing Co and is now Head Brewer at Golden Road Brewery); all beers that come from Hood River or Portland have a special tie to my heartstrings. But it also helps that this pick is from one of the THE MOST fantastic breweries you’ll ever try beer from. The bottle this month is none other than Oak Aged Bretta from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales.  There’s firm oak presence with spicy floral and pepper-like notes. Also a strong presence of fruit; with flavor notes such as: apricot, pear, lemon, and apple. The finish is fruity, spicy, grassy, and dry with a not insubstantial oak presence.

As described by Logsdon, “Our organic Oak Aged Bretta is made with our Seizoen Bretta that is aged for a period of time to deelop the wood aged character in the beer. Oak Tannins, vanilla notes and subtle smoky spiciness soften and mellow this beer over time. The aged unfiltered beer is refermented and carbonated in the bottle with select yeast strains to provide added dryness and complexity then sealed with beeswax for additional aging.”

Bottles are available in the taproom now so stop by soon and take some home before they’re all gone!

Last-Minute Gifts!

If you are like me, you probably aren’t the best at buying gifts this time of year and getting them where they need to be on time. Whoops.

Well either way here are a few ideas for those last minute gifts that work for almost anyone on your list.

Click on any title to be taken to the online store.

“The Best Gift for ANYONE on your list, including yourself!”

Our giftcards are great because you can set the amount you want to give and you’re giving the gift of beer, fun and friendship. You can purchase these in our taproom or online.

“The Gift for the Glass Collector”

P1010072

Our pint glasses are not only gorgeous (if we do say so ourselves) but they make the perfect gift at just $5/glass. With our “beer for the people” logo this pint is seriously perfect for ANY avid beer drinker. Like yourself perhaps?

“The gift for the less than perfect hair day, OR those that are hair challenged”

The Beanie. The easiest hat known to man. And ours just happens to come in TWO colors; complete with ERB logo and warming abilities. PLUS, it makes you look super cool. And it really is the best way to hide that head hangover you call not taking a shower today. Or yesterday. Hey, we get it. We’re there for ya.

“The gift for he/she who likes to drink at home (w/ or w/o friends)”

2012-11-05 17.51.26

Ahh, the growler. Man (or wo-man’s) ACTUAL best friend. How else would we be able to drink large quantities of delicious craft beer in your own home? Oh, AND bring it back to the brewery for MORE. Sure you can pick these up in our taproom. But did you also know you can buy them (empty) online and have them shipped to all your favorite people? They are indeed the best gift you can give this season.

“The best gift for the swag wearing fashionista”

hoodies

Feeling a little chilly with all the dark clouds in the sky? Then our ERB hoodie is most definitely for you. You’ll be warm and cozy while looking boss and with your hood you will definitely be shielded from that cold wet stuff that keeps falling from the sky.

There are many other gifts to shop for in our taproom and online so be sure to stop in or check it out HERE if you need those last minute gifts. If you shop online we can ship your gifts for you. Sooooo easy.

You can also throw together a gift “basket” of sorts with maybe a homebrewing book (sold in the taproom), pint glass, bottle of barrel-aged Jubilee (also sold in the taproom) and giftcard and you’ll definitely score points with that “special someone”. The possibilities are endless.

Cyber Monday

Worried that you missed out on the great BLACK FRIDAY SALE? Don’t fret! We’ve decided to get savvy and also have a Cyber Monday sale for all of you. It’s a bit different than our Black Friday savings (of course) but seriously awesome nonetheless.

This Monday (November 26th), anything you order in our online store you will get FREE SHIPPING (USPS First Class only). So it’s the perfect time to send Uncle John a pint glass and a t-shirt. Or get your cousin that trucker hat she always wanted with maybe a $25 giftcard as well just in case she needs to stop in to the taproom next year for a beer (she will). Or maybe you just want to snag yourself something pretty to support your favorite brewery.

Lee wants you to get your swag on, RIGHT NOW!

Whatever the case….. we’ve got lots of great stuff and this FREE SHIPPING* will only last ONE DAY for the entire year so you’d better get on it! Tell your wife, tell your mom, tell your neighbor……

EAGLE ROCK BREWERY IS HAVING A ONCE IN A LIFETIME SALE! (haha) You totally should yell it for dramatic effect too!

So what are you waiting for? Oh, I guess it has to be Monday.  🙂  But if it is….Head on over to our online store (http://shop.eaglerockbrewery.com) and get your shop on! At checkout just make sure to enter the code: FREESHIP for your discount (valid only November 26th until midnight, USPS First Class Mail ONLY).

 

Black Friday is coming…

I’m sure everyone is pretty aware at this point in their lives that the long lines of tents that start popping up around the electronic megastores are for the infamous “BLACK FRIDAY”. Now if getting up über early Friday morning to swarm through mobs of people for that amazing deal is worth your post-turkey day energy…. then seriously more power to ya.

But we here at Eagle Rock Brewery prefer the ease of shopping for all those gifts (and honestly goodies for ourselves) the comfortable and fun way… Sitting in our PJs, eating a day-after turkey sandwich (mmmmmm…..) and surfing the deals ONLINE!

So this year we decided that if you are like us you probably want to shop for your ERB goods the way we would. Thus our very first ….

 

 

That’s right. We are having a one-day ONLY sale in our online shop. Starting Friday morning (midnight o’clock) everything in our shop will be up for grabs at 10% off it’s normal price! All you have to do is add all your favorites to your shopping cart and then upon checkout enter the special code: “BLACKFRIDAY” to receive your discount. It couldn’t be easier to buy your favorite t-shirt or stock up on some extra growler bottles.

(Side note: growler bottles make GREAT gifts for people who live in CA and LOVE ERB beer and also great gifts for people who live outside of CA and can fill ANY growler at any brewery. Since these come empty your friend can fill them with any beer they desire)

Here are a few of the great items you can purchase:

Gorgeous Growlers
(available in 1L or 2L)

Snifters
(perfect for those holiday beers)

Trucker Hat
(a little swag for your bed head)

And of course…. much much more.

Head over to http://shop.eaglerockbrewery.com  now and pick out all your favorites. Then on Friday (November 23rd) wake up from your food coma and shop for all your holiday or just regular beer swag needs. The sale will go ALL DAY and will end at midnight.

Get your shop on and support your favorite brewery in the process~
