Sprecher Brewings & Doings

27th February 2009

Well, the Marquette- UConn game was one of the best all year.  A heartbreaker for Marquette fans.  Dominic James certainly showed he has the heart of a champion.  Poor guy — a broken metatarsil early in the game and late in his college career.  Devasting though the injury was, Marquette rallied and so did James.  He came out on crutches and cheered his team on with such enthusiasm you could tell that even though he wasn’t in the game, his heart was.   And so were the fans, all 19,900+.

Stay tuned!  This team has more great basketball in store.  Go Marquette!

On another subject: Tonight is Sprecher’s official Irish Stout release party, complete with a firkin and the band Heat.

Hi Everyone,

Last night Randy and I had a Sprecher beer tasting at a great little beer bar in San Luis Obispo, California,  — Spikes Pub, 570 Higuera St.  For a Monday night there was a pretty big crowd of beer lovers.  Spikes had Abbey Triple, IPA2, Black Bavarian and our new EPA on tap.  Plus, Randy being Randy, he had many bottles of other goodies to share.  While the central coast has many good beers available, most had never tried Sprecher so they really appreciated the taste revelation.  Needless to say, a good time was had by all.  Favorite beers on tap (in order) = Abbey Triple, Black Bavarian, IPA2 and EPA.  Generation Porter was a crowd pleaser (too bad we only made 300 cases this year), as were the Bourbon Barrel aged Scotch Ale and Imperial Stout.  For those who live in the central coast, you can find Sprecher sodas at Bev Mo in SLO.  As for our beers, try Spikes, Creekside Brew Pub and Club Car.

At the brewery in Glendale: this Friday, February 27th, is the official Sprecher Irish Stout release party!  Food, music, fun, blarney, Irish Stout and a firkin! On St. Paddy’s Day proper, we’re offering tours and Irish fun starting at 3pm.  Call 414.964.2739 for more information and reservations.  Why Milwaukee hasn’t made St. Paddy’s Day an official holiday, I’m not sure; Milwaukeeans certainly party as if it were!

The Easter Bunny is coming to Sprecher!  Indeed, the Easter Bunny has taken time out of its busy schedule to visit Sprecher on three Sundays: March 22, March 29 and April 5.  Take a tour, visit with the big bunny and get your souvenir photo!  Create memorable fun regardless of your age (= not for kids only).  You can also have your photograph placed on a bottles of Sprecher Root Beer or Cherry Cola.  Priceless, but for you, only $2.00/bottle, minimum order of 12 bottles.  Contact the Sprecher Gift Shop, 414.964.2739.
