April - the weather still hasn't gotten out of hand, yet.  We're coming up on Cinco De Mayo, so we've included some Mexican Cerveza recipes for our April offerings. This way, they'll be ready to drink next month.  Our Dog Day Two-Gallon offering is also Cerveza-oriented: Chihuahua Mexican Cerveza! Of course, we had to slip one hoppy beer in: Gumby Head American Wheat Ale.

We are offering a $5 discount on our featured Basic Brew Recipes™:

Mexican Cerveza Clara (More authentic, but not necessarily better in clear bottle!)
Amber Cerveza XX
(A little darker, a little more full-bodied)

Gumby Head American Wheat Ale  (It's got wheat, but it's also got a bunch of Amarillo hops, too!)

We are also offering a $2 discount on a featured Dog Day Recipe Kit™ (our Eight Liter/Two Gallon Mr. Beer Size Kit).  
Chihuahua Mexican Cerveza (Wash those spicy nachos down with one, or two, of these!)
DISPLAY MODEL 15 GALLON BLICHMANN ELECTRIC BOILERMAKER AT REDUCED PRICING!  This is our display model - Unused, but out-of-box. We have been using one of these for years, and we absolutely love it!  This kettle cooks!  We typically boil off two gallons of wort in an hour, so you can sparge a little extra and increase your mash efficiency without adding time to your boil!  We're letting this diplay model go at $449.99.  That represents a $111 savings off its minimum advertised price of $560.99 of a "new-in-box" model.  Obviously, there is only one available at this price!  Any special orders hereafter must be at Blichmann's minimum advertised pricing. Grab it while you can!
 
Every March we order hop rhizomes for those of you that would like to try your hand at growing your own hops.  This year we are offering the following varieties:
