If you are on the lookout for gifts for your friends and loved ones, you’ve come to the right place! We think this year we have something for just about everyone on your list – the foodie, the fresh flower lover, the fan of local produce, the rare beer aficionado, and, (sometimes the hardest to buy for) the one who has everything, but would treasure a memorable experience as a gift. Read on for our favorite gift ideas!
1- For Lovers of Fresh, Locally Grown Produce and/or Flowers
We are now offering shares to our 2020 Hobbs Farm CSA! If the thought of supporting a small, local business while also giving (or receiving!) 18 weeks of fresh flowers, produce, and even beer seems like a killer idea, then check out our 2020 CSA. CSA’s are Community Supported Agriculture, with shareholders becoming “members” of our farm and receiving a portion of our harvest each week, via shares. All food for the CSA is grown right here at Hobbs Farm, home to Throwback Brewery. Our farm adheres to the principles of organic farming – we do not use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides, and we endeavor to use growing practices that are sustainable.
This year we are offering two CSAs – a Whole Farm Share (with an option to add beer) AND a Flower Share. With both options you will be supporting local agriculture! Learn about pricing, pickup / delivery dates, and more, right here!
2- For Those Who Seemingly Have Everything / When You Want To Gift An Experience
Perhaps you have a friend or loved one that seems to have everything? Or, maybe you rather give the gift of experience – something that can be looked back on fondly for years to come? If so, consider grabbing tickets to our Rare Breed Dinner, happening on January 15, 2020.
This should be a very unique and intimate dinner revolving around some extraordinary beer that we’ve been aging for over a year! We will be releasing the full six-course menu soon, but, in the meantime, you can check out the full beer lineup here. If the thought of this dinner and carefully curated, rare beers from our cellar seems like a great gift for someone (including yourself), we are taking reservations now via email, phone, or here at the brewery. Seats are $55/person plus tax & gratuity. Upon making a reservation, we’ll grab your credit card, which won’t be charged until the end of the evening on 1/15/20.
3- For Your Favorite Beer Nerd / For Lovers of Special Dark Beers
We are extremely excited to announce the launch of our Unafraid of the Dark – Rare Breed Edition, featuring four dark, barrel-aged beers that have been carefully vetted by our brewers and owners to ensure that they are extraordinary enough to be bottled and shared with you!
The series makes for a very unique and special gift (for your friends, loved ones, or yourself). Buying into the series ensures that you can take home all four beers, and you will also get a discount on all the beers as well! The beer in the series include 2019 Port Barrel-Aged Five Minute Fugitive Russian Imperial Stout (11.4% ABV), Coconut Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout (11% ABV), The Dark Side of The Blend (7.8%) – a cuvée (i.e., a mix) of our Oma’s Tribute black lager that’s been fermented with Brettanomyces in a 4 Roses Bourbon Barrel blended with The Sandman— our dopplebock that’s been aged in a Cognac barrel, plus one more dark, barrel-aged beauty to be announced soon!
Info on how to buy into the series can be found here. Don’t delay, these are selling fast!
4- Stocking Stuffers
Need a little something for a colleague at work, or to bring to a holiday party, or to stuff some stockings? Check out our packaged offerings from our talented culinary team, sold here at Throwback Brewery. We have jars of our popular apple butter and mustard, bags of our hop salt, and hop salted beer caramels, too!
We also sell gift certificates that can be purchased in the taproom or online, and are good for food and drink in our pub, to-go cans or growlers, or our high quality Throwback merchandise.
5- Farm-Fresh Beer
Finally, we have a plethora of freshly canned beer, including Fat Alberta – our chocolate peanut butter Russian Imperial Stout. Clocking in at 11% ABV, this full-bodied, smooth drinking beauty features flavors and aromas of dark chocolate and dry roasted peanuts, for the maximum Reeses effect. The definition of chocolate and peanut butter decadence!
Happy Holidays, everyone!
