Goose Island Flight Pack: Salute to the Presidents

Happy President’s Day from Skeff Distributing!

Many of our former presidents have been what affectionately call beer lovers. Some brewed their own; some just appreciated an ice cold one at the end of a long day doing presidential things. Today we salute them for their great taste in adult beverages with the Goose Island Flight Pack.

No matter what your politics, if you’re reading this blog, you appreciate good beer. So whether you’re from the right, the left, or somewhere in the center, we can all find something to bond over and relate to over a good beer.

The Goose Island Flight Pack can be a great way to bridge the gaps or find common ground. It is available in 12-pack and 24-pack bottles, so you’ll have plenty to share with one person or several people.

You can set up a tasting party for your guest(s) of honor – lay out the beers in a flight and taste them. You’ll have a great time and discover which beers you all like or dislike, which you agree are the best and which you disagree worth the title of “favorite” in the pack.

The Goose Island Flight Pack includes the following:

  • Goose IPA
  • 312 Urban Wheat
  • Summer Hours Lager
  • Endless IPA

This pack is a limited edition pack, but you are free to enjoy it through the spring – so try it tomorrow and maybe even set up a regular meeting of the minds over the Goose Island Flight Pack, starting with President’s Day!

Cheers!

Happy Mardi Gras from Skeff Distributing!

Get out your greens your yellows and your purples. Put them together, grab some beads and some friends, and celebrate Mardi Gras like Ash Wednesday will never come!

Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday – one of the funnest holidays there ever was – and we want to help you enjoy it to the fullest. After all, that’s what this day is all about. Live it up while you can because tomorrow will come and it’ll be 40-plus days of not to much fun after you’ve given up chocolate or vowed to work out 5 days a week in an effort to reinstate that New Years resolution you’ve already forgotten about.

Stock your fridge with some bottles of Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra, and Goose Island (or any of Skeff Distributing’s other great brands) and make sure there’s something for everyone. Then, invite your friends over and enjoy the fattest of Fat Tuesday’s.

You can have some beers, eat some yummy snacks you’re likely trying to give up for the next 40 days or so, and have a blast. Toss some beads to those who bring a pack of Bud Light to the party and a “dilly dilly,” too!

Have fun, be safe, and happy Mardi Gras to all! Dilly dilly!

Team Skeff Gives Back with a Blood Drive

On Friday, January 26th, Skeff Distributing made time to get back. Employees signed up weeks in advance to give blood at an onsite blood drive with the help of Central Illinois Community Blood Center and their Bloodmobile, which made it easy for our employees to donate by coming to us!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Before everyone got started, we prepared Team Skeff with some information about how important it is that blood banks, hospitals, and eventually the recipients receive donations. We had a representative from Central Illinois Community Blood Center come in and speak to our team and have a face-to-face conversation about the blood drive and what it could do for our community (Thanks, Krista!). Then we followed up via email over the next couple weeks with information like this:

Did you know? Blood transfusions are only possible because of volunteer donors. 1 in 7 patients entering our hospitals will need a blood transfusion. Only 38% of people are eligible to give, less than 10% do.

Blood Drive Image

And this:

Saving lives is simple. Did you know?

Frigid weather impacts blood donation. Many donors have had to cancel their donation appointments due to the frigid weather throughout our region. Your donation is needed now. Our local hospitals and patients are counting on your donation.

And this:

Blood is needed daily to assist patients in local hospitals and cannot be manufactured. Your donation could be used for cancer treatments, surgeries, organ transplants, newborns, severe burns, and trauma. Every time you donate, you’re saving lives!

Of course, a number of members of Team Skeff registered beforehand and showed up the day of the Blood Drive, ready and willing to donate.

Be sure to keep your local blood banks in mind as you’re looking to give back and give more of yourself in the New Year. It doesn’t take long, and a little bit goes a long way to saving lives. Donate today!

Cheers!

Super Bowl: King of Commercials

Are you excited for the Super Bowl? We are! Whether you’re rooting for the New England Patriots or the Philadelphia Eagles, we know there’s one thing everyone can agree on – the commercials are the real reason many of us watch the Super Bowl.

The case can also be made that Budweiser just may be the King of (Super Bowl) Commercials as well as the King of Beers. This year already appears to show there will be no change in that title.

They’ve done it again. They’ve taken a one-minute spot and told a story fit to pull your heartstrings and appreciate Big Beer for something other than a great-tasting product.

Having the capability to halt and switch the production lines, stop producing the liquid that pays their bills and that of all those employees who depend on the sale and consumption of that liquid, and redirect those resources to can clean drinking water for those who are in desperate need of it after natural disasters – that is something worth tipping your hat or holding up a pint glass to salute.

In one minute, Budweiser told a story of helping those in need, of giving back, of showing everything they’re more than just a big beer company – they’re a member of the communities where they live and work, and they stand by you.

Cheers to this commercial and all the great commercials we’re about to watch this Super Bowl Sunday – they’re sure to be worth the watch, if this is any indication!

98th Anniversary of the 18th Amendment

Tomorrow’s date in 1920 was an important one in our industry’s history. It marked the passing of the 18th Amendment and the start of Prohibition, which made it illegal to manufacture or sell alcohol in the U.S.

prohibition women

As you can imagine, this put a halt on the beer industry’s usual business. It also forced beer makers to get creative and find ways to keep their businesses running. In the case of Anheuser-Busch, they pulled their resources together and used them to produce in other industries for the next 13 years, such as the non-alcoholic beer, soft drink, and ice cream industries.

Yes, tomorrow marks the 98th anniversary of our industry’s history changing. It was a challenging time for those in and related to the beer industry. Everyone from the brewers to the bars and restaurants to the drivers and factory workers to the hop farmers were affected.

They got creative. They survived. And 98 years later, we are here to say that we are happy The Noble Experiment (however noble it may have been) eventually came to an end and brought back many jobs and a reason for Happy Hour to be happy again!

Cheers!

Michelob Ultra: Helping You Keep that New Year’s Resolution

Happy New Year! We’re all looking forward to what 2018 will bring us and finalizing our New Year’s Resolutions. Of course, we all want to improve ourselves and do better. We have great intentions every year…. it’s just that, it’s also very easy to break those resolutions the first time we’re inconvenienced by the goal we set for ourselves.

You may have put down a resolution this year that goes a little something like this:

  • I’m going to be healthier.
  • I’m going to be more active.
  • I’m going to improve my overall health.

That’s great! We are right there with you and fully support the goal of living a healthier, more active lifestyle. And so, does Michelob Ultra.

In case you hadn’t noticed, this is what Michelob Ultra is all about – being healthy, being active…but not having to sacrifice a cold beer at the end of the day or feel guilty about enjoying one. It’s all about moderation and being realistic about what life is going to throw our way.

Do the workout. Go to the Happy Hour. Enjoy a Michelob Ultra or two. You’re still improving your life and your health, while allowing yourself the option to still have a beer with friends. It just so happens that it’s a beer with great taste and low calories – win-win!

Here’s to the New Year and actually keeping your New Year’s Resolution in 2018 by drinking Michelob Ultra – cheers!

Christmas Cheers with UCBC Kinsale Stout!

Merry Christmas! We hope you and yours are having a wonderful holiday spent with family and friends. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have an extra Monday off work either!

In case you need a last-minute idea for the finishing touches on your Christmas celebration…. or you have to make a beer run because your party is going just that well, we thought we’d let you know about Urban Chestnut Brewing Company’s Kinsale Stout. Nothing says, “Warm holiday feelings” like a stout.

This Foreign Export Stout is an Irish stout has a Caribbean accent, so you can imagine yourself sitting by the fire in a cozy Irish home in the countryside or lounging on the beach in the Caribbean for a beachy Christmas worthy of Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney.Kinsale label

It’s “named for the southern Ireland town, boasting a Caribbean sister town of the same name” and is “an Irish-perfected, Caribbean-loved style of beer” traditionally brewed for tropical regions in the 18th and 19th century that you can now find on shelves in 4-pack cans. Once you pop that top, you’ll find Kinsale Stout has a “moderate roasted flavor with a coffee, chocolate, and a pleasant, lightly burnt grain character,” according to the brewers.

Kinsale

If that doesn’t sound like a great Christmas nightcap of a beer, we don’t know what does! Head out for that last-minute addition to your celebration and enjoy the rest of the holiday.

Merry Christmas and cheers!

Alaskan Brewing Beers: Keeping You Warm All Winter Long

Alaskan Brewing Beers: Keeping You Warm All Winter Long

The official start of winter is just days away, and we’re all wondering what kind of weather it will bring this year. One thing we do know is how we’re going to stay warm and enjoy ourselves this winter. We’re going to sip on some Alaskan Brewing beers!

Recently, Skeff Distributing welcomed Alaskan Brewing to Illinois and to our own portfolio of beers. It was a long-anticipated welcome and an exciting one. Now, we’re excited to share some of these great-tasting beers with you!

Each of these beers is brewed with glacier-fed water that comes from the 1,500 square-mile Juneau Ice Field and the rainfall the area receives every year, so you can taste a little bit of Alaska with every sip.

Alaskan White Ale

Based on a Belgian-style wit bier, Alaskan White Ale (5.3% ABV) is a throwback to a historic style beer that dates back to the 18th century. Fittingly, the label features a (white) polar bear, which will help you find the 6-pack bottles you’ll be looking for on shelves in the beer aisle!

Alaskan White Ale

According to the brewers, “Alaskan White Ale has a soft, slightly sweet base with a unique spice aroma of coriander and crisp, citrus finish of orange peel,” which makes for a “complex and delicate beer that is deliciously refreshing in any season.” We’ll take a round, please!

Alaskan Amber AleAlaskan Amber Ale

Next in the lineup is the award-winning Alaskan Amber Ale (5.3% ABV), an alt-style beer. In German, “alt” means “old,” so read it as an “old-style beer.” This refers to the aging process – both slower and colder than most ales – that gives it an “overall balance and smoothness,” the brewers say.

This richly malty beer is available both on tap and in 6-pack bottles, so you can enjoy it at home or when you’re out and about!

Husky IPAAlaskan Husky IPA

Named after the “hardest-working athletes of the North,” the Husky IPA (7% ABV) is sure to go down quick! The brewers describe Husky IPA as having “brilliant clarity,” as well as “tropical and stone fruit flavors with aromas of tangerine and papaya.” The recipe is based on a small batch SMaSH Mosaic IPA, which means it uses only one hop and one malt to bring out the desired flavors and aromas of each.

Husky IPA is also available on tap and in 6-pack bottles, so enjoy them as you please, in the comfort of your own home or your favorite watering hole!

Hopothermia

And then there’s, Hopothermia (8.5% ABV) for when you’re feeling really cold and in need something hoppy! You can find this American Double IPA on tap, and share the legend that inspired it over a pint or two. Legend says a lone brewer crafted Hopothermia after dreaming of a Double IPA that would keep the wolves from his door in the dead of winter.

It’s a “full-flavored” Double IPA with “a robust malt body, resting in easy harmony, like a massive grizzly bear in winter, with a big and drinkable American hop character,” the brewers tell us. It also has a “floral aroma and citrus hop base” and “notes of spicy grapefruit and orange.”

Alaskan Hopothermia

No matter which Alaskan beer you choose, you’re sure to enjoy it, to want more, and to tell your friends about it. Or if you want a taste of them all, get yourselves a 12-pack bottle sampler pack, see what you like, and go back for more of your top choices later!

Stay warm this winter with Alaskan Brewing beers. Cheers!

Host One to Remember this Holiday Season with Stella Artois

This holiday season host one to remember with Stella Artois! If you didn’t already know it, Stella Artois was originally brewed as a Christmas gift to the town of Leuven, Belgium and was named after the holiday star. This happens to make it the best beer to give and serve around the holidays!

Since it was named and given as a gift originally, why not make it part of your next holiday meal and celebration?

You may have plans already scheduled and organized…and the weather may throw a wrench in them and cause you to improvise. Either way, you have the chance to host a beautiful and fun holiday party any time you add Stella Artois to the menu.

Speaking of the menu, you can add some easy hors d’ouevres with these antipasto ideas

Reinvent Antipasto

Or serve brie cheese with figs and honey on your favorite crackers.

Brie Figs and Honey Appetizer

Your guests are sure to love them…and they’ll love them even more when paired with a cold Stella Artois in their hand!

Make this holiday party your best one yet and host one to remember.

Cheers and happy holidays!

Celebrate Repeal Day with Budweiser A & Eagle Aluminum Bottles!

Happy Repeal Day! Today marks the 84th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition. Celebrate this year with some Budweiser aluminum bottles with the iconic A & Eagle label!

Bud A&Eagle Alum Bottles

This symbol goes back to the earliest days of Anheuser-Busch, when Budweiser was a new brand and gaining popularity. You can bet it will be just as popular today at your Repeal Day Happy Hour or at your next holiday party.

You can find these A & Eagle logo Budweiser bottles in 16 oz. twist-off bottles in a number packages, including 8-packs, 12-packs, 20-packs, and 24-packs. Find them on shelves in the beer aisle or cave or ask the bartenders and servers are your local restaurants and bars for a round!

Want to mix and match? You’ll remember from our post in November that Budweiser has also released a recipe from their archives and brewed Budweiser 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager.

1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager 2017 draft-stubby bottle

Both of these are available for a limited-time only. They’ll be here for the holidays and just like that – they’ll be gone! So, head out and get them while you can.

Whether you’re having a big party or a small get-together, you can find the packages you need for those who want an American Classic (Budweiser dressed in the A & Eagle) or something new but old (1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager) to celebrate Repeal Day and the holidays with, Skeff Distributing and Anheuser-Busch have you covered with a beer that was there for it all. Buy a pack (or two) today!

Cheers to Repeal Day – this Bud’s for you, 21st Amendment!

Celebrate the Holidays with Goose Island’s Winter Ale & Noël

The holiday season is a great time to share some stories and some laughs with your friends and family over a beer or two. Skeff Distributing and Goose Island know this, and that’s why they’ve worked hard to provide you with a couple more beers to add to your shopping list this year.

Goose Winter Ale

As the weather keeps getting colder, you may find yourself wanting a beer that makes you feel all warm and cozy inside as you sit by the fire. Well Goose Winter Ale (5.3% ABV) is just what you’ve been looking for. This award-winning, umber-colored brown ale is “layered with rich, nutty chocolate notes and malty, roasted caramel flavors,” according to the brewers.

Doesn’t that just sound like you should be listening to Nat King Cole croon about roasting chestnuts on an open fire? Excuse us while we turn on the tunes and enjoy a Winter Ale ourselves…..all winter long.

Noël

Noël (9.5% ABV) is a Belgian-style Dark Ale that is traditionally brewed in Belgium as a way to show thanks to their loyal consumers at the end of the year.

It’s a deep ruby brown Dark Ale with “balanced notes of caramelized sugar, toasted bread, black cheer, and dried apricot,” and brewed to help us celebrate the holidays, the end of one year, and the beginning of another.

Whether you’re getting ready to stock the fridge for your holiday party with your friends, your family, or your coworkers, be sure to stock it with Goose Island’s winter seasonal beers, Winter Ale and Noël. They’re sure to be a party pleaser.

Cheers and happy holidays!

SpikedSeltzer: Something Different for the Holidays

You have probably seen and/or tried SpikeSeltzer in the past 6 months or so as it has been in our market for a while now. Many people think of it as a great summertime beer, but we think it’s also a great one for the holidays.

SpikedSeltzer (6% ABV) is a cold-brewed beer with only 5g of carbs. It’s gluten-free. It isn’t sweet but is flavored with natural fruit essences to give you a great-tasting beer. All this combined makes SpikedSeltzer a solid option for watching your carb intake and (hopefully) keeping that belt on the notch it’s on.

We know the holidays can be a hard time to watch our weight with all the treats and feasts at work and with family and friends. So why not try a lighter option drink? You’ll also find that your friends and family who normally drink white wine or spirits will also like SpikedSeltzer. Plus, a pack of this will serve more people, so pick a couple up and share the love.

As you make your grocery lists for your next holiday event (Thanksgiving, wink wink), remember to add SpikedSeltzer and introduce your friends and family to a little something different this holiday season.

Cheers, happy (early) Thanksgiving, and happy holidays!Spiked Seltzer 2017

Prep for Repeal Day and the Holidays with Budweiser’s 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager

Last week started Daylight Savings Time. We fell back in time…and so has Budweiser. Anheuser-Busch is taking us back to the end of Prohibition with their 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager.

“[I]nspired by one of Budweiser’s archival recipes” this amber lager is set to help you celebrate December 5th, Repeal Day, and kick-off the holiday season. With plenty of opportunity to gather friends and family together, why not bring something a little different, a throwback to the party? Bring a pack of Budweiser’s 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager for everyone to enjoy.

1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager 2017

It has a “lightly hoppy, roasted malt aroma with a slightly sweet tasted and a sharp, crisp finish,” so you’ll be sure to bring a party pleaser with this Repeal Day beer. It will appeal to a range of your friends and family and have them coming back for more.

You can also get together and be sure to watch for the commercial spots of 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager and the famous Budweiser Clydesdales this winter as you share a 6- or 12-pack, complete with the heritage glass.

This picture will all look so good, you might just think you’re living inside a Norman Rockwell painting.

Cheers to Repeal Day and all the holidays spent with a 1933 Repeal Reserve Amber Lager in hand!

We had everything from Jenny from Forrest Gump to John Skeffington and several creative costumes in between. You can see them for yourself below.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The rest of Team Skeff as well as our followers on Facebook voted for their favorite costume with either a tally or a like throughout the day Friday and over the weekend. Then, this morning we added up all the votes.

And the winner is…

Jeannie John as Sandra Dee

Jeannie as Sandy from Grease.

Congratulations to Jeannie! T.R., the two-time Halloween Costume Contest winner, finally decided to give us all a chance and let someone else win!

Shock Top’s Citrus Pack: Here for All Your Citrus Needs this Fall and Winter!

This fall and winter Shock Top came with their latest version of the Citrus Pack. You may remember their spring and summer Citrus Pack. Just know, this pack is different and quite possibly even better (or maybe that’s just my opinion because it has one of my favorite flavors in it).

The Citrus Pack has their original orange citrus as well as three newer products, so it looks a little something like this:

  • Belgian White
  • Sunset Orange (Remember this from last week’s post here.)
  • Ruby Fresh (You can refresh your memory of this one here.)
  • Inner Beauty
    • According to the brewers, this new brew is a “Belgian-style wheat beer brewed with citrus peel, coriander, and Ugli Jamaican Tangelo.” If you’re like us, you may be asking, “What is an Ugli Jamaican Tangelo?” So, we did a bit of research and found that an Ugli Jamaican Tangelo is a hybrid citrus fruit grown exclusively in Jamaica from a combination of fruit families, including the Seville orange, the grapefruit, and the tangerine.

ST Fall-Winter Variety Pack 2017

If this sounds like something you’d enjoy bringing to your next bonfire or Thanksgiving, you can find this citrus variety pack all this fall and winter in 12-pack bottles. Head out and pick up a pack to share, then enjoy it throughout the fall and winter.

Cheers!

Sunset Orange: Your New Favorite Citrus Beer from Shock Top

In case you missed our post on Bud Illini  and didn’t run out right away to buy a pack, we wanted to make sure you know all about the latest citrus beer from Shock Top. Meet Shock Top Sunset Orange!

ST Sunset Orange 2017.PNG

Sunset Orange is Shock Top’s “new Belgian-style wheat beer brewed with coriander and citrus peels, including blood orange.” In other words, your taste buds are about to thank you for trying this new citrus beer!

If you haven’t really had Blood Orange before, know this: it is a different flavor than that of a regular ol’ orange. Blood orange sweet but not too sweet and has an almost raspberry flavor to it (or so they say…it’s a unique flavor). It makes for a very sessionable beer because your taste buds are getting just enough of that sweetness without becoming overwhelming. Plus, blood orange just has a delicious flavor to it.

What we’re saying here is, the best thing you can do is give Shock Top Sunset Orange the ol’ college try and see what you think! Head to your local grocery or liquor store for either 6-pack or 12-pack bottles of Sunset Orange. You and your friends can enjoy this citrus beer all fall and winter long– it may just become your new favorite!

Cheers!

Skeff Distributing: Nipping Breast Cancer in the Bud

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this year Team Skeff decided to play our part in raising awareness (and some money, too).

It all came about when two of our employees submitted similar best practices to create t-shirts for our employees to wear every Friday in October. Of course, our Leadership Team thought this was a great idea and readily approved the best practices. We then put our Graphic Artists to work on a few different design options, and this was the winning design…

October BC Awareness - Winning Shirt

Team Skeff members signed up for t-shirts and paid $5 to be collected and donated to Come Together Let’s Walk, a local Decatur charity that contributes to the fight and research for breast, ovarian, and cervical cancers.

Our shirts were printed thanks to Enlightening Fashion in Danville (we like to spread the love to all our markets), and we distributed them to the team. Then last Friday, Team Skeff went out into the markets wearing their shirts, but first we had a Sales meeting and gathered the team together for a group photo.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We hope that by doing our part to raise awareness for breast cancer and to donate to the costs for research for a cure that we inspire those in our communities to do the same, so we can finally nip breast cancer in the Bud!

Cheers to all those who have lost the fight, who continue to fight, who fought and survived, and all those who fight alongside them against breast cancer! This Bud’s for you!
