It's a New Day and Also A Day To Remember

I'm so happy to share some new events and some new restaurants, with new offerings, to you this week. I'm also happy that both bay area baseball teams appear to be heading to the playoffs, and football has started. I pray for those less fortunate... I pray for an end to the fires... I also remember the tragedy of 911 and the impact it had on me. God bless us all.

A $1 Bottle of Ripple Now Costs $200

I remember drinking this stuff in the early '70s. It was probably my first buzz. I drank this even before I discovered beer. So, if you had bought 12 cases, 144 bottles, you would have paid $144 plus tax. 50 years later, that investment would now be worth $28,800. That's better than Netflix.

My point is. Look at some of the artwork on these craft beer cans, in the bottle shop, at Mannheim Social Club, Brentwood. Some of these beers are going to become national brands. Some of these artists are going to become rich and famous. Question is, which beers to buy for investment?

I know for a fact that people from all over the Bay Area watch this inventory and drive from all over the Bay area to buy beer.

A good place to start. Order a few crowlers and growlers, (football starts this weekend), from the 64 rotating craft beers they have in stock. Check out the bottle shop (more than 400 brands), to enjoy now and to invest in. Eat some tasty BBQ while you're there and then start watching your beer futures.
