We’d like to announce a special event occurring here at Jim’s Home Brew. As such, we will be closing early on Wednesday.
From Chicago, Goose Island Brewery will hold a special deconstruction class on the their famous “Bourbon County Stout”. Head brewer Austin Niestrom and lab technician Matt Cinatl will walk us through a sensory experience that is part of the brewing process. Additionally, there will be liquid samples available for tasting.
Following the class, a documentary will be shown at the Magic Lantern Theater over the history of the beers development.
In order to attend, you will need to RSVP here, at www.bcsdeconstructionclass.eventbrite.com
Hope to see you here!
We have a limited supply so if your interested in growing your own, come by the store and pick out a favorite hop that you like to brew with. Additionally, they are just the most beautiful growing vine. They can grow up to 1 to 2 feet per day. Image, siting on the deck drinking a cold one and smelling the fragrance of the hops you brewed with–just to die for. So get them now while they’re ready for planting! Cheers!
Holidays are coming and we have that perfect gift for your friend or loved one. So stop on in and and check out the possibilities and if everything else fails a gift certificate usually does the trick! Happy Holidays from all of us at Jim’s Homebrew! Help those who spread the Christmas Cheer through drink and merry!
Happy 4th of July Everyone !
We will be closing early at 4pm Friday the 3rd and we will be closed from the 4th to the 6th. We will reopen with normal hours 10:00 am to 6 pm Tuesday the 6th of July. Play it safe and be sure you have plenty of fluids on hand for friends and family.
Okay, you know you make the best beer and/or wine but try competing to see if your beverages can make the mark when it goes up against the competition. The cost is nothing and you’ll get an evaluation and possibly a ribbon and even the title of Champion from the Spokane Interstate Fair. Paper entries are due soon, 11 Aug 2015. For entry forms follow this link to the fair. Good luck everyone!
First of all, we’d like to say thanks to all the loyal customers we’ve had over the years. Effective immediately, we are now closed on Mondays. We would also like to say, ” thank-you” to Joel and Tom who staffed the store during those hours.
In the next couple of weeks, the ground will start to thaw, and that is when hop rhizomes will be dug and made available for sale. For all you brewers or for those who need to cover an arbor, fence or pole, these are great for a brew or late summer foliage. We recommend starting them in planting pots and holding them indoors and later weathering them off for outdoor planting. We have them available for a limited time for pick-up at the store, only. Preorders have now been filled.
Note: We are prohibited from shipping into Idaho. They are under an agriculture quarantine order.
Happy Valentines day everyone. To help you show your love to that special wine maker, we are offering 10% off on our floor corkers. They are in stock and ready for pick-up. This special will last the whole month of February. So come on down and get one while they last!
