What's Brewing: June 10, 2016 Edition

Exciting things are brewing at myLHBS. If you have been to the store recently, you have seen the changes. If you haven't been in for a while--what are you waiting for? There are so many cool things to talk about this issue we don't know where to start. So here is the quick rundown:
We now sell beer! 
We have a newly updated, more mobile friendly web site. 
And, we have added 12 helpful brewing tools and a recipe builder to the web site.

Want to learn more about these exciting changes? Read on, my friend!

Beer Me!
If there is one thing we've learned from our 10 years at myLHBS, it's that home brewers don't just love to brew beer, they love all things beer related, including...BEER!

So D3 (Derek, Derek & Dennis) have been cherry picking beers to carry in the store and it's been a blast to see our customer's heads explode from pure joy. Want to know what we have on the shelves? Check our website under the Beer Me! tab. And every Saturday from 3-5 pm. we'll be pouring samples so you can try before you buy. Check our social media feeds each Saturday for info on what we're tasting that week. Cheers!

 Get Untapped with myLHBS 
Our very cool Beer Me! list is powered by the Untapped app. The app is an easy way to find out about beers, breweries and venues, share what you are drinking and get recommendations from friends. 

Once you download the app, search for myLocal HomeBrew Shop under Venues and you can opt in for notifications every time we add new beers. Join the fun! Rate the beers and check in each time you shop. 



myLHBS Website Refreshed and Mobile Ready
Are you like us? Do you surf the web on your phone as often as you do on your desktop? Well, no matter how you access it, the new www.myLHBS.com site delivers the goods. We've got a full web store, recipes, tools and more at your finger tips. Want to know if we carry something? Check here. The inventory is real-time. So if we have it in the store, it shows up online. If we happen to be sold out of an item you want, you can opt to get notified when it's back in stock. And if you are just too busy to make it in to the store, remember that our local shipping option is very economical. We're here for you--in person and online and everything in between!
