Welcome to this week’s edition of What’s Zed Got Going On?

Pour it forward!  Pour it forward!

We’re thrilled with the reception so far!  Here’s some of the Pour It Forward cards currently on the board: “Any natural Ginger,” “Someone who brought in their rescue animal to Zed’s,” “someone wearing a tan belt,” “Anyone wearing Addidas Sambas.”

And remember: if you break the chain, you’re risking bad beer kharma.  (Yes, I’m looking at you, the two who redeemed “Resident of Cherry Hill,” and “someone who needs it.”)

What’s Pour It Forward?  Only a great program where you can be rewarded for just being you by either redeeming or buying a Pour It Forward Gift Card.

Here’s the Rules:

You can buy a beer for just about anyone you want to reward for just about anything.  Just purchase a special Pour It Forward gift card, fill it out, tack it onto the cork board and wait.  Someone, some day will find the match and turn the gift card in.  And you’ll rest easy knowing that you’ve made someone’s day.

You can redeem a Pour It Forward gift card for just being you—provided that you meet the requirements outlined on the card.  See a Pour It Forward card that rewards you for being born in a year ending in a “9?” Show us your ID and if you were born in 1969 you’re golden.  Born in 1997?  Check out the other cards.

Pour It Forward gift cards are good only for one pint.  Zed’s Beer staff have the final say as to if you’re eligible to redeem the Pour It Forward gift card.  Zed’s Beer staff will remove anything deemed vulgar or offensive and you wont get your money back, so don’t be stupid.  Pour It Forward gift cards must be purchased outright before being posted.  (You cannot include a Pour It Forward gift card in an open tab.)  Pour It Forward gift cards cannot be returned nor are they redeemable for cash.  As with any purchase, consumers who, at our sole discretion, appear to be intoxicated will not be served.

Questions?  Ask Geoff or Lori.

Resilience IPA Releases January 26 @ 4PM!  Resilience IPA Releases January 26 @ 4PM!!

As many of you know, we are one of the few breweries in NJ who are brewing a collaborative recipe with Sierra Nevada called Resilience IPA.  All sales from this IPA will be donated to the Sierra Nevada Campfire Relief Fund.  Our Assistant Brewer, Tommy, is a retired firefighter and has helped us team up with the Professional Firefighters of New Jersey to make the release event as big as possible.  So while the beer is done, we are not going to launch it until January 26th at 4PM.  Please be here on that day (and afterwards) to show support for the great cause and for the men and women who put their lives on the line every day.
