NEW Cook Book "Hedonistic Hops"
As a recipe developer / cookbook author married to an enthusiastic hophead, Marie Porter has created many amazing recipes featuring the bitter flower. These recipes have been wildly popular not only with her friends and family, but on her food & lifestyle blog, Celebration Generation. Now, she has developed an entire cookbook of hop recipes – the first of its kind!

While hops may seem like a bizarre or exotic item to cook with, it’s the same as using other herbs and spices in your kitchen… you just have to know what to do with them! Sample Receipes below.

Hoppy Citrus IPA Glazed Wings, Hoppy Citrus French Macarons, Hoppy IPA BBQ Sauce, Hoppy IPA Pickles

Auto Siphon Filter/Screen:
One of the better ways to clean up your beer other than time, temperature or using a filter system is to prevent solids from transferring upon moving your beer.  This can be accomplished by putting your siphon or hose into a fine nylon bag, but eventually these bags start to look pretty nasty.  That's why a filter was created to stick your siphon into in order to prevent solids from transferring.  By doing this, you also avoid getting these same solids stuck in your siphon.  You can use this filter to put your auto siphon into to transfer out of, or you can put the hose into the filter in the vessel into which you are transferring.

Tom's Musings
     February was another fabulous month with more than 500 sales again. We truly appreciate the wonderful loyalty of all our customers. A always we listen to many stories as well as requests for new products and ingredients. We will soon add some new hops to our selection. Summer from Australia, Wai iti from New Zealand, Eureka and Denali (aka nuggetzilla) both from Yakima, WA. These will be available within the next few weeks. 
     Couple weeks ago we received an email from Yelp telling us we now have a 5 star rating. They mailed us a little certificate to hang up and a sticker for our door. Always nice to see and have such nice comments from all of you. We also have a 5 star on Facebook and a 4.7 on Google. When I can remember how to login to these, I like to reply and thank everyone for taking time to give us such positive reviews. I think years ago starting out selling only Corny Kegs and slowly adding some draft equipment and then a few kettles and brewing equipment. Now we have over 3,000 part numbers and it continues to grow. Mike and I work daily on ways to keep our inventory fresh and with the best product mix we can offer. We do not feel that carrying every single brand or product line is what is needed or wanted. We look for products that fit homebrewers budgets. There are many Cadillac products out there that are great quality but not priced right for many. We are happy to order anything you need, want or gotta have. Every week, I receive dozens of emails and calls for new products. While some are interesting, others make little sense. Loading the store with products that sit and gather dust does no one any good. Quite often your suggestions for new products are the ones that sell the best. That's why we take the time to chat and learn from all of you. The business of being a shopkeeper/peddler is to listen and learn from his customers. We have found this to be the perfect formula for success and all around enjoyment of what we do daily. All the hops mentioned above are being added thanks to a customers request. 
     Have a great March and we look forward to seeing you in the store.
