Gift Ideas 

Thursday, December 06, 2012 , By Carey Matthews

 

Oh, shopping for others.  So hard.  Sometimes you just find yourself at a loss.  We are here to help.  We dragged some of our employees in front of the Christmas tree and made them model some of the newer items in our gift shop.  We have these items and more in our gift shop at the brewery and online.  We ship our merchandise via the United States Postal Service, so be sure to place your orders by December 19 to ensure Christmas delivery.  You can visit us in person Monday-Thursday from 8:30am to 4:30pm, Friday from 8:30am-8:00pm (come during Tap Room hours and buy a pint for yourself while you shop, 3-8pm), and Saturday during tours 10:30am to 5:30pm.  And now on to shopping:

Dsc01120_large

Betsy, our Visitor Services Coordinator, is modeling several items.  In hand is the German made 0.5 liter glass stein, a steal at $9.95.  Thrown jauntily around her neck is the Summit scarf for $24.95 (a matching pom pom hat will be in next week!).  Finally, a  ladies v-neck black tee with green Summit logo on the side, $15.95.


Dsc01117_large

Christian, who works on our bottling and keg line, is also sporting several stylish pieces.  On his noggin is the yellow and maroon partial mesh hat, $12.95.  Clutched in his mitt is the hand thrown, made in St. Paul, ceramic tumbler, $17.95. And that sweatshirt?  A brewery staff favorite for its comfort and fit, the Alternative Earth grey zip up hoody with Summit patch, $39.95.  The slim fit looks great on men and women.  It also looks great with a pair of pajama pants, all weekend long.  And yes, this photo is a little out of focus, but his model pose is pretty great, so we kept it in.


Dsc01105_large

Jill, our Office Coordinator, has the long sleeve navy women'se tee on ($22.95) while proudly sipping an Extra Pale Ale.  Drinking a beer while wearing this shirt is not required, but it is highly recommended.


Dsc01133_large

Brewer Jeff is ready for some outdoor cooking in the Summit grilling apron ($19.95).  This baby has it all-a bottle opener, a mitt, a rag, and best of all-an insulated pocket for your beer!  He will also be super stealth due to his handy $10 camouflage Summit hat. Hey, where did Jeff go?


Dsc01130_large

Carey, our Marketing Coordinator, is enjoying a potent potable in another version of the St. Paul made, hand thrown ceramic mug.  This one has a handle!  These mugs come in multiple earth tone colors and several shapes.  At $17.95 it is the perfect gift for the locavore in your life.


Dsc01139_large

Tony, our Controller and class clown, has on the super soft, light weight 1/4 zip fleece with embroidered logo for men.  The color is hard to photograph, but it is a mossy forest green and will only put you back $32.95.


Dsc01143_large

Like art?  We do too.  So we commissioned local artist Mark Herman to do some special prints for us.  There are three different designs and all three come in 16" x 20" or 8" x 10".  Pictured here is the brewery version for $28.95...and Betsy's oh fer cute fox sweater.  Foxes may be the new owls, but this sweater is not available in our gift shop.


Dsc01137_large

Elsa, our Administrative Assistant, is having two cups of insulated holiday cheer with some koozies/coozies.  Either way you spell it, it is a terrible word for an awesome product.  In her right hand is the cup coozie, suitable for a pint or plastic cup, retailing for $2.95.  In her left hand is the bottle koozie for $3.95.  Stocking stuffers?  Yes.  She also has on our men's uniform shirt with Summit patch.  Look official for just $34.95.


Dsc01112_large

Look, it's Betsy again, this time looking merry in the women's light weight 1/4 zip fleece in a leaf green color.  Check out the embroidered hop vine on the front.  Ok, it is hard to see, easier to see here.  For only $32.95, this comfy top can be yours.


All these items and more are in our gift shop or online.  Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

      Summit Winter Ale

      Comforting as a down blanket. And way better tasting.

      Summit Oatmeal Stout

      Brewed year-round

      A taste you won't find everywhere.

      While its cascading rich black color will be familiar to Stout enthusiasts, ours is decidedly different. It's made with naked oats from the UK, for one. Smooth and slightly sweet, with hints of coffee, caramel and chocolate. Sold only on draught in select places.
