This holiday season the Downtown Bellingham Partnership wants you to shop downtown when checking people off your holiday list…they’ve even arranged for FREE parking every weekday during lunch (11:30-1:30pm) to sweeten the deal! Shopping downtown during the holidays is just one more way that the Bellingham community can be supportive of our local, independently owned businesses. Keeping your dollars local enhances the livability of our community, the stability and diversity of the local economy, and the retention and expansion of independent, NW Washington owned businesses. You’ll find gifts for everyone downtown…from sweet, funky home decor at Digs to one of a kind pieces at Allied Arts. How about outdoor gear for all your athletes at Backcountry Essentials or fun toys and great clothes for the little ones at Kids Northwest. While you’re downtown, shopping locally, drop by Boundary Bay Brewery for a quick lunchtime fuel up! We’ve got a rotating soup of the day menu (see the calendar online!) and lots of menu items featuring local ingredients sure to please any appetite. What strikes your fancy…our Great Northwest smoked salmon pizza, a lamb burger or our legendary Mac and Cheese? How about a spinach salad or our infamous Yam Alechiladas? We’ll cook it for fresh for you and have you out shopping again in no time!
But don’t forget to check out our Brewtique on your way out! We’ve been stocking up for the holidays and we’ve got lots of great gifts for everyone on your list…be they naughty or nice! Yes, we’ve got lots and lots of hoodies with our Save the Ales slogan on it, but we’ve also got women’s clothing, tons of hats and great stocking stuffers like bike stickers, keychains and water bottles. Plus lots and lots more! Need some gift ideas? Grab one of our brewing equipment series t-shirts, a few Boundary Bay 22′s and a bottle opener key chain for the craft beer enthusiast. Get your uncle in Seattle who’s visited a couple times and loves Boundary one of our baseball hats and our 2010 calendar that features Boundary events, regional beer festivals and national craft beer events! Your friends who just had kids will really appreciate the Boundary Bay-bie bib or one of our baby t-shirts…maybe even a root beer t-shirt for the older brother or sister. We guarantee your room mate will love a growler of our Cabin Fever or a couple of our 22 oz. bottles tucked under the Christmas tree! And your cycling buddy will kick off the new year right with one of our cycling jerseys, a brand new bike stickers and a sweet stainless steel water bottle to keep them hydrated on all their adventures. Your friend who practically LIVES at the disc golf course in Cornwall park would love one of our driver or putter (or both!) disc golf discs and a few 22′s for his backpack! And for the outdoor lover on your list, we’ve got new beanies coming in from Coal and new fleece jackets with our diamond logo embroidered on them. You can find t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts and clothes for the whole family…or we’ve got gift cards (good for food, beer and/or merchandise) if you just can’t decide what they’d love the most. We’ve got personal shoppers in our Brewtique to be on hand from 4-8 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and from 12-8pm on Saturdays. During those hours, our merchandise area will be staffed with people to ring you up, grab you different sizes and check our back stock for whatever you don’t see out on the racks. But, don’t worry…if you can’t make it down here to the brewery during the Brewtique hours, you can always just take your purchases up to the bar to buy them or you can shop online!
Hoppy Holidays from Boundary Bay Brewery…your local brewing company. Cheers!
