We are passionate about beer – so our vision is to have a unique store carrying beer, beer accessories, vintage beer and bar items and a large variety of books about beer to expand what we know about the product we love so much.

We also carry delicious artisan foods for you to pair with your beer.

We are looking to become part of the beer community in Ferndale and beyond. For now, take us for what we are at this moment - a hub for beer lovers, aficionados, and newbie’s to come and share their beer stories, talk about what beers they are currently drinking and help us find new beers to share.

Cheers, Tim and Brigid

Une Annee Tasting Friday Night; Super Bowl Squares and Hopslam Updates

This may be the only post you read today that doesn’t mention ‘Deflate-gate’ or the Big Winter Storm That Wasn’t In NYC….oops.

Oh well, we do have some things to say today.

Back by popular demand, we will be playing the Super Bowl Squares again this year. It works like the regular ‘squares’, except it costs nothing to play and we give away some good beer to each winner. Only thing is, you have to come into the store to sign up. Now you have a another reason to come ‘on in.

This week’s tasting will feature beers from Une Annee’ from Chicago. We’ve been carrying them for about a month now and we think you need to try these Belgian-style brews.

Yes Virginia, we are expecting more Bell’s Hopslam Wednesday. We are looking to release the beer at 6pm so everybody gets a chance to pick up a six-pack. More information comes tomorrow after the truck shows up.
