It appears likely that the landscape in the environs of Beer City USA will be covered in white this year for Christmas. According to the National Weather Service, parts of the West Michigan area received up to a foot of snow over the past few weeks and weather forecasters are saying that ten more inches could fall this weekend.
Speaking of Christmas, there’s only nine shopping days left and our hardworking staff of elves (see below) have been busy keeping the shelves at Siciliano’s well stocked with hand-crafted beer, fine wine, quality spirits and premium cigars. We have plenty of bulk coffee and tea on hand for stocking stuffers and our book racks are chock-full of how-to tomes on beer making, winemaking and other DIY hobbies. Of course Siciliano’s gift cards are always a good option for those hard to buy for folks on your Christmas list.
Just a reminder that our beer and wine making equipment kits will remain on deep discount through the end of business on Christmas Eve. Go here for complete details.
