14th Anniv. Party, Galveston Pub Crawl & the Saga of the Copper Thieves
Here is what happened in 1994:
Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed on the leg during the Olympics;
Nelson Mandela became the president of South Africa;
OJ Simpson went on a slow ride in a white Bronco;
The Rockets won their first NBA championship, and;
Saint Arnold Brewing Company opened!
To celebrate, we will be holding our 14th Anniversary Party at the brewery on Saturday, June 7 from 6 PM to 9 PM. Admission is $32 which includes our cobalt blue anniversary pint, really good barbecue and the Brewery Olympics!

Participants will be teams of two people.
Let us know you are interested when making your reservation, and who the team will be.
We will draw 8 teams out of a hat during the Anniversary Party.

LAST ITEM: BEWARE OF THE COPPER THIEVES!
Last week some #*$% thieves got up on our roof and stole about $200 worth of copper by ripping apart our refrigeration and a/c systems. In the process, they did over $75,000 worth of damage, plus sent us scrambling to come up with a temporary system to save our beer. Production was down for about 5 days, but we are back up and running, and most importantly, no beer was harmed. Extra protection will be installed with the replacement chillers, although in the end we decided against the gory booby-trapped systems we briefly fantasized about.
2008 has been a great year for us so far: continued sales growth, 2 World Beer Cup medals, 4 new tanks and we are getting very close to starting construction on our new brewery near downtown. Remember to recycle your six pack carriers, and thanks for your support!
