New Beer Friday, Special Recognition Edition (Sept 1)

Sarah, General Manager
Preamble by Steve Siciliano

Whenever my wife and I get positive feedback about our business we acknowledge the kind words but quickly point out that it's really our employees who deserve recognition. Barb and I have been very fortunate to have had many dedicated and passionate people working for us over the years, and each in their own has been instrumental in helping us make Siciliano's the store it is today.

We feel that three of our long term employees deserve special recognition and for that reason we are giving promotions to Kati, John and Sarah. Effective September 11 Sarah will be our GM and Kati and John are being promoted to Assistant Managers.

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Sarah, Kati and John for their years of dedication and service. Throw some kudos their way the next time you're in Siciliano's.

John, Assistant Manager
Kati, Assistant Manager

  • Freigeist Geisterzug Quince Gose, $8.19/500ml - "Based on Freigeist’s ancient spruced Gose recipe, Geisterzug Quince & Geisterzug Rhubarb feature all the complexity, funkiness, and body of the of the original but go one step further by adding tart & flavorful real fruit & vegetable during fermentation.  The resultant brews are incredibly lively, characterful, and thirst-quenching" (source).
