In case you weren't aware, this is the coolest August that Arkansas has had since 1948. Not complaining here! But it's just a little disorienting for Arkansans to spend the hottest part of the hottest month of the year dry, comfortable, and maybe even wearing pants. What to do?
How about seeing this fall-like weather and raising it by boldly wagering on beverages from Rebsamen Liquor that would generally seem to be a better lifestyle fit later in the season? I'm thinking hearty IPAs, stiff cognacs, and if you're really feeling icy, hot toddies. I don't know, down is up, up is down; it seems to make sense to me.
Ho, ho, ho. It's everyone's favorite season (well, almost everyone...), and almost your last chance to stock up for whatever cheerful family festivities you have planned. We've got great Christmas deals on wine for your banquet, beer for your chill sesh, and whiskey for your hard night of reckoning. (Hey, it takes all kinds.) Whatever the season has in store for you, we at Rebsamen wish you the best, and we hope that you remember the reason for the season. Merry Christmas to all, glad tidings, and we hope to see you soon.
We're open all week. Stock up for all your festivities and, most importantly, the nice glass of wine or chill beer after all the guests have left and it's time to RELAX! See you around!
When spooky times ignite the Rock
And midnight's pallor stops the clock
There is one place the good man goes
To Rebsamen, where saving grows
The dev'lish mischief is about
The con man, ghost and peevish lout
The pumpkins glow upon the ground
But you, good friend, are safe and sound
For armed with spirits, beer, and wine
You've saved enough for peace of mind
Sipping sagely, you've no fear
"Damn, that is pretty solid beer"
College football has kicked off with a solid Razorback win, the distant hint of a chill has reached Rebsamen Park, and school is back in session. Yes, fall is here, whether we're ready or not.
Here at Rebsamen Liquor, we're ready to be your fall purveyor of fine wines and spirits. Check out some of our seasonal beer and bourbon offerings that are perfect for a tailgate, boat ride, or evening on the back porch. Whether you like a sweeter beverage, with spice and pumpkin hints, or something straighter, we've got it all. Better yet, save money on a parka and spend it instead on a toasty coat of booze that will keep you warm without breaking the budget! On second thought, maybe just go ahead and buy the jacket.
You probably know the brief version of Rebsamen Liquor's origin story. Today we wanted to give you some more details about where things currently stand with our renovations. It's actually pretty exciting!
Through the first two months of 2015, we undertook some pretty intense work to clean the store, repaint, and remove old junk. The picture below is truly just the tip of the iceberg of what we removed.
At the same time, we have been gradually updating our product mix. With all the additional shelf space that we've discovered since shipping out the junk, we've been able to add a ton of new product lines. Our wine and bourbon selection is pretty darn awesome for this area. And our beer selection is getting there!
This photo shows us at an intermediate stage. You can see we've got some quality craft labels, and we were decently organized (from left to right: macro domestics, imports, craft), but we've improved since. We've gotten rid of some of the duplicates you see here and cycled in some great, hard-to-find craft beers. Ben Jordan, who joined in January, really knows his craft beer and has been working on keeping things fresh and challenging. You've got to come in on at least a weekly basis, though, because when we sell out of one brand, it's onto the next!
Next up is getting some exterior signage so people know we're Rebsamen Liquor and we are open for business. We've got a pylon sign that says "LIQUOR" out front, but sometimes it's hard to know whether that is an antique or a sign for a real, working store. Rest assured, we are as real as it gets. Once we spruce that sign up and get some building signage as well, it will be unmistakable.
We'll keep you updated!
