Christmas In July
Dear St. Arnold’s Army:
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But Christmas Ale makes it so delightful.
Turn the air conditioning way down low,
Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow!
CHRISTMAS IN JULY CASES SHIPPING STARTING TODAY!
These July days in the 90°s make us long for those crisp, cool December days when it only gets up to 80°. Such reminiscing reminded us of how good a Christmas Ale would taste right about now. So we brewed up one special batch for release this month for our second annual Christmas in July celebration. There are only about 500 cases and 8 kegs to spread around Houston. Cases will start appearing in stores today and the keg release schedule is below. So pull out the Christmas lights, start playing the carols and put on the reindeer sweater from Aunt Mabel. Merry Christmas!

SAINT ARNOLD DOWNTOWN SCAVENGER HUNT
Our first-ever downtown pub scavenger hunt will be going on from July 25 to August 4. On (or about) July 24, we will be posting the rules and clues. (More info will be coming in the next newsletter.) For the first 100 people that complete and submit the required answers correctly, we will have a party here at the brewery. At that party, from the completed entries we will draw one name for the grand prize: a kegerator for your home! So make sure to leave some free time in your schedule for the end of the month!

SEEKING GROUPS FOR OUR NEXT BAYOU CLEANUP & TREE PLANTING ON AUGUST 23
We are seeking service groups and businesses that would like to help us on our next cleanup at the spot on the Buffalo Bayou that we have adopted. Whoever recruits the most people to help can be a “Saint Arnold Employee for 1/2 a day”. Come learn the true meaning of St. Arnold’s quote “From man’s sweat and God’s love, beer came into the world.” If you have a group that would be interested, please contact Lennie ([email protected] or 713-686-9494).
