It is nearly summer and that means refreshing beverages and passing out in the beach while your friends make crude designs on your back with your sunblock.
Before getting too far into this, we want to thank everyone who helped us celebrate our grand re-opening on National Homebrew Day. The turn out was fantastic and a wonderful time was had by all!
Cap ‘N’ Cork has some most excellent events coming up so let’s get down to business.
Rex Halfpenny Guest Speaker
We would like to remind everyone that our guest speaker this week will be Rex Halfpenny from the Michigan Beer Guide. The topic will be Sensory Evaluation and Beer Judging. Be sure to pop in for this free and informative powwow. And with a name like Rex Halfpenny, it has to be awesome!
Todd Parker on Creating Creative Beer
Our guest speaker for the month of June will be Todd Parker, formerly of Copper Canyon fame and known for his Beerposiums. He will be offering a seminar on Creating Creative Beer. So, if you are tired of the same old brews you make day in and day out, stop on by and get a few pointers from an old creative pro. The presentation will take place June 13th at 7 PM, here at the store. There is no sign up sheet for this event but we would greatly appreciate a confirmation from any attending so we can get a general head count.

Summer Solstice Sweet Wine Soiree
It is true; we here, at Cap ‘N’ Cork, love alliteration. But what we love more than a clever quip, is sharing our fine products with you all. So on Friday, June 21, we will be hosting a wine tasting featuring a wide selection of our Island Mist and Orchard Breezin brands. These two lines of sweet wines are a perfect companion on a warm summer day and what better day than the longest one of the year? The event will start at 7 PM and admission is $10 to cover the cost of delicious appetizers. There will also be some great deals on the Island Mist and Orchard Breezin kits for those in attendance. Be sure to stop in and sign up for this shindig, as space is limited.
Since we are talking about June, we might as well give you the heads up as to what will be our Kits of the Month and qualify for 15% off. This discount goes into effect on June 1. Remember to check the Events page for the many happenings at Cap ‘N’ Cork.
Win Tigers Tickets!
And lastly, but far from least importance, we have Detroit Tigers Tickets available and will have them available throughout the season. All you have to do to win them is show up to the store dressed as an 18th Century Haberdasher.
Or you can simply place your business card in the jar on our front counter and we will do a drawing whenever we have a pair of tix to give away.
Memorial Day at Cap N Cork
Okay, we lied; there is still one more thing. The store will be closed May 25 & 26 for Memorial day weekend so if you plan on brewing or making wine that weekend, please plan accordingly.
Whew! That’s a lot going on and we have even more happening but we can wait until the next newsletter to address those. Until then, we raise our glasses to you!
