News that’s fit to print

So, I’ve been a bit lax recently about telling everyone what we’ve added to the store.  I thought I would take a few minutes and see if I could shine a little light on that.

The bourbon section is growing steadily and at both ends.  I have added several bottles that are quite nice and easily affordable.  A quick list of those would include the Old Forester 100 proof, Evan Williams White Label 100 proof, and Pennypacker will join them next week.  In the next tier, we have added an entire new line of Smooth Ambler products that includes a 7yr old bourbon, a 10yr old bourbon, an 8yr old single barrel bourbon, a 7yr old rye, and a 7 yr old cask strength rye.

The craft beer has taken a huge jump and there are really too many to list now.  We’ve added two offerings from Lagunitas, two from Founders, two from Bell’s (with two more coming next week), and a couple from Dogfish.  There are at this moment at least five different pumpkin ales and several additional Octoberfests.  The IPA selection has grown exponentially over the summer and we are starting to order the stouts and porters for the fall and winter months.




Hi everyone!!  For those that have been following along on the continuing saga of Big Earl’s, we thought this might be a good place to keep everyone updated about what is going on.  We expect things to be finalized very soon (both exciting and terrifying).  That means we’ll finally be able to change that pesky sign out front, start making changes to the look of the store (get out your painting clothes if you want to help), and start adding some of the more interesting stuff that we’ve been wanting to add for a while.

For newer followers, the things we’ve been wanting to add include: tastings (bourbon, wine, and craft beer), growlers, build your own six packs of craft beer, and an expanded bourbon selection.

If you haven’t been in for a while, now is a good time to start coming back.  We have already started to change the way the store looks to reflect the nature of the business a bit more.  We’re ordering as many of the interesting bourbons as we can get since this time of year has some really cool releases.  The craft beer selection is growing weekly and currently features a broad selection of seasonal products (think Octoberfests and Pumpkin Ales) as well as all of the newly canned beers from our Friends at Country Boy Brewing and West 6th Street.  As they continue to expand their canning lines, we will continue to add products from both of them.

While we concentrate on bourbon and craft beer, we are always adding new and interesting wines (Table #7 and Big Bad Zin are coming soon) as well as new releases in other sections of the store when they are available.  As always, if you have questions or want suggestions from any of us, give us a yell and we’ll do our best to find something that is exactly what you are looking for.
