It seems like forever since we’ve had a couple days in a row that are this nice! Our long wait for Spring is finally here! And with Springtime here, there are a lot of new seasonal releases on the shelves and on draft. And that’s great news! But it also means that the left-over winter seasonals will soon be gone!
Because liquor stores need to create space for the Spring releases– -and that’s on top of all of the new beers coming from both existing breweries and brand new craft breweries– -we have the chance to pick up some “must sell” beers at reduced prices. And this is a perfect time to have a new craft beer experience and buy something you’ve been curious about, but maybe the price, or the style, kept you away.
Brewers are like chefs. They are constantly creating and refining recipes. And as much as they love making their flagship beers, the development of new beers is part of the fun of their journey. Many seasonal releases are one-time releases and some come back year-after-year. While there is no set rule as to why a seasonal craft beer does or doesn’t return the next year, the one thing you know now is that if you see something you’ve wanted to try sitting on a shelf, you can be sure to enjoy it at least this one time!
Liquor stores will always display the sale prices of these seasonal must-sells and often will put these seasonal mark-downs in one designated area. The bottom line: enjoy a new craft beer shopping exploration. It’ll make your next few sessions a little different and give them their own level of fun because of your new craft beer adventure!
