State Line Liquors Beer Update

I just received an email from State Line Liquors, so I though I would pass along the beer section.

Beer… Beer… Beer

We’ve got a preliminary beer tasting schedule forthe next few months & a few additional notes we’d like to pass it along!

Stop by on Friday, April 29th from 4:00-7:00 pm when a representative from Tröegs Brewing Company will be offering samples of some of their many fine beers (no fee). Chris & John Trogner of Tröeg Brothers Brewing in Central Pennsylvania say, “We aren’t concerned with making beer to a particular style, as much as we want to create a quality beer that we like to drink—that’s what is really important.” State Line carries a great selection & on April 29th (only), you can enjoy discounted prices on these Troeg brews: Hopback Amber Ale, Amber Pale Ale, Rugged Trail Nut Brown, Sunshine Pils & the ever-popular, Troegenator Double Bock. Visit the Troegs feature page (go to “Beer Home”) on our website for additional info on these great brews.

GOOD NEWS… The sold out Baltimore/Clipper City bus trip (from January) has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 7th! BAD NEWS… Of the customers who’d signed up for the original trip, we had no cancellations. The trip is still completely full with an extensive waiting list.
We’ll be sure to let you know if we add another trip anytime in the near future!

NEXT our upcoming beer tastings schedule:
Thursday, May 19th, 2005, 7:00-9:00 pm, “Blind IPA’s”
Thursday, June 16th, 2005, 7:00-9:00 pm, “The Beers of Summer”
Thursday, July 21st, 2005, 7:00-9:00 pm, “Wheat Beers”
Of course we’ll have details as we get closer to each event but in the meantime, please mark the dates on your calendar! We may be adding a date or two so keep an eye on the Beer Tasting page of our website. Also, for those who attended our recent Belgian tasting, please check out “Spring ’05 Belgian Tasting” (click) page for some fun photos taken that evening.

Also, a reminder, thru April 30th Club Card members may take advantage of a special 15% discount on all Belgian singles & 10% discount on all Belgian 4-packs & 6-packs. This is the last week!

Researchers get $1Mil to see if hops helps menopause

Looks like scientists in Chicago are looking for some bitchy women to sample some cold ones.

UIC to study if beer ingredient helps menopause
April 12, 2005

Can an ingredient in beer help relieve symptoms of menopause?
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago will get $1 million a year for five years from the National Institutes of Health to try to find out.
UIC is one of five botanical research centers nationwide awarded federal grants for research that will include studying hops — an ingredient in beer — for relief of menopause symptoms and chaste berry to relieve premenstrual symptoms.
”We’re trying to make some sense of it,” said Norman Farnsworth, a college of pharmacy research professor.
Scientists already are doing a clinical trial to see if two other plant-based, nutritional supplements — black cohosh and red clover — relieve such menopause symptoms as hot flashes.
The research reflects the reality that about 38.2 million American adults use plant-based supplements.
”Given that millions of Americans are using natural products, these research centers are critical to helping us determine whether and by what mechanisms botanicals may serve as effective treatments or preventive approaches,” said Dr. Stephen E. Straus, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, which is part of the NIH. AP
