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

Pour it forward!  Pour it forward!

We’re introducing a new program at Zed’s Beer and I want to spend much of this newsletter explaining it.  (It’s not that tough, trust me.)

Ever wish someone would reward you for the cool tie you’re wearing?  Or for having only one vowel in your name?  Or that you think “porridge” rhymes with “orange?”  Ever been so happy that you needed to share the feeling with someone on their first date?  Or their anniversary?  Ever been so satisfied with your beer-cheese pairing that you just needed to tell the world?  

Introducing Pour It Forward, 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.

New Beer Alert!  New Beer Alert!

Zed’s in San Fran—Brut IPA is a delicious take on what an IPA can be.  This beer his highly effervescent and finishes quite dry.  You’ll love how the combination of Crystal, Simcoe and Citra hops shine.  ABV: 5.7 IBU: 58
