Summer Solstice Newsletter I

Happy Summer To One And All from S.F. Brewcraft!

We wish for you to enjoy the fruits of adventure and freedom that the spirit of summer provides.
Another reminder this is the absolute last chance you have to brew for Burning Man. Also don’t procrastinate. Start on your fall, winter and holiday ales as soon as possible so they will be ready in time. If you need some ideas call or stop in the store.

Most of you regular customers either know or have seen our own Rev Jackson (the guy with the dreadlocks down to the floor). We are very sorry to say that he is now brewing full time for Pizza Orgasmica. Our loss will definitely be their gain. We will sincerely miss his spirit and expertise. He was and will remain one of our very best friends. Head on down to Pizza Orgasmica and try his great beers and eat some of their great pizza.

While we’re on this subject, when you come into the shop tell us about your favorite brewpub grub and in particular we would like to hear about brewpubs with patios. If you give us any hot tips we will mention it in the next newsletter and give you credit for the tip. Plus we’ll give you a 5% discount on your order.

Remember the drawing for the complete kegging system will be on July 12th so you still have plenty of time to come in and put in your guess on Griz’s weight. No purchase necessary, one chance per visit.

For all you folks that are curious about all-grain brewing, Eric has already completed a successful class and we are writing this newsletter on June 6th and we will be having another all grain brewing session tomorrow, June 7th. More are scheduled in the very near future. Let us know if you have any interest in all grain brewing. The way we are going to run these sessions is as follows: the night before the actual brew, we will have an introductory session that will last about 45 minutes and we will give you an overall picture and introduction to all grain brewing. The next day we will actually brew a 10 gallon batch and rather than you watch you will participate and help with the brew. We have found this is the best and clearest way to learn all grain brewing. We can tell you that all grain brewing really is not all that complicated. It has more to do with technique than volumes of arcane knowledge. The point being it is way less complicated than you think it is and nothing to be afraid of.

We are trying to improve our service to our customers so we really need to know what you’re suggestions are to us accomplish this. So don’t be afraid to give us suggestions(be gentle). Let us know what you’re needs are.
