Have you ever wished you could be the first one in town to hear about the arrivals of seasonal beers, limited-release wines, and small-batch spirits that are hard-to-find? Well, we’ve had a solution for some time now; just head over to MainDepotConnection.com (or sign up right here on Main Party’s home page), and get on the list! What list, you ask? The VIP list that puts all this information right in your inbox, that’s what list! We don’t flood you with a torrent of trivial notices, because our Main Man David is too busy running the store and keeping the shelves stocked for you! But every couple of weeks or so, David will send you a friendly personal message giving you the low-down on all our latest arrivals and any especially-special deals we may be offering. If you’ve read this far, that means you probably didn’t get David’s latest missive, so we’ve included it below. So if you want to be the first kid on the block to know about our next round of new arrivals, just sign up, and we’ll send info like this a good week or so before it ends up on the website. And as you probably know, that can be the difference between the haves and the have-nots when it comes to limited and seasonal releases!
Here’s the latest from David:
Pumpkin beers–we have so many, I will name but a few–
* We finally got in some Dogfish Head Punk – $10.99 per four pack, 12 oz bottles
* Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela – $14.99 for the 750ml bottle
* Rogue has released their pumpkin offering – $12.99 for the 750 ml
* O’Fallon’s, from Missouri, what a deal – $11.49 per six pack, 12 oz bottle
* Plus, I can think of at least 5 others without straining a brain cell…
Also of interest, at both Beer Depot and Main Party, is the Rogue Voodoo Doughnut release for this year — Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana Ale. I still love this combination as a snack, so how can you go wrong by drinking your snack? $16.99 for the 750ml bottle.
While we are discussing Rogue, I should mention that both Beer Depot and Main Party have a super sale on the Rogue XS series in the small bottles. These little 7 fl. oz. bottles of Imperial Younger’s Special Bitter Ale, Imperial Stout, and (if there is any left) Imperial India Pale Ale are great beers to cellar — buy a case of each, and open one every other month for the next two years to see how they evolve. That is, if you can restrain from drinking them faster. But since they have been reduced from the regular price of $6.29 per bottle, down to $4.99 or two for $8.00, that’s just $48.00 per case, and we’re sure you can afford to load up on these age-able beers.
Finally, let me mention the Stone rarities: We have gotten in just enough of the latest collabra-brew to keep our customers happy… The R & R Coconut IPA is toasty with a little more interesting tropical fruit than the usual grapefruit-bomb-of-an-IPA than other brewers are known for. But don’t let the name fool you. It is not some coconut suntan-oil rum concoction. Instead, the brewers, who are serious homebrewers working with Stone and Rip Current Brewing Company, have made a highly quaffable (pardon the cliche) beauty that only hints at the nutty name on the bottle. This bottle is $19.99 on the shelf, but mention the e-mail and get it for $16.99.
Also in from Stone is the 17th Anniversary Gotterdammerung IPA. (Those of you who are Wagnerian Opera fans, please pardon my lack of umlauts in this communication.) This beer is what Stone is known for: delivering a great, solid, 9.5% ABV bomb of an IPA with a twist. This hummer is packed with German malts and hops, giving it a more bavarian twist on the regular American IPA. And the Saaz-derived hops is something I love. Slightly more floral… my mouth is watering. $7.69 at both stores.
Thanks for your attention,
Hope to see you soon!
