Healthy Spirits Beer of the Month Club!

and Baird Brewing looking pretty as a picture

Hey Everybody,

Just wanted to remind you all that we have a great Beer of the Month Club here at Healthy Spirits: Here's the pitch:

We pick a few beers, usually 4 to 6 bottles, every month. There is no membership fee other than the discounted retail price of the beers selected. Cost to you tends to average $65 every month. In addition to detailed tasting notes on each of the selections, club members have certain privileges:

-Discount card, entitling you to 10% off in-store purchases (some exceptions may apply)
-Right to reserve bottles by telephone (this comes in handy with limited release products. Follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagram, or y'know, this blog to stay up to date on new releases)

Membership is month to month, and there's no fee to join. All you pay is the discounted cost of the club selections on a monthly basis. Makes a great gift!

To join, simply come into the store and fill out a membership form or call our Castro store at 415-255-0610 or our Richmond location at 415-682-4260 for more information.

Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee 2015

Since 2006 Firestone Walker's barrel aging project has turned out some of America's most sought after beer releases in their Anniversary Ale series. These ales are a blend of several unique components, beers of varying styles aged in spirits vessels. Over the years, our friends in Paso Robles have treated us to some of these component ales as draft only and, to our delight here at Healthy Spirits, limited bottle runs.

Stickee Monkee lives up to its name by spiking a full on Belgian-style dark strong ale with Mexican Turbinado brown sugar and aging in oaken spirits vessels to impart more flavor. A rich molasses sweetness gives way to toasted coconut, and an earthy leather finish. 

22oz bottle in a handsome display box will set you back $18.99 plus tax and CRV. One (1) bottle per person per diem limit, please, and phone reservations for club members only.
