Beware the Ides of Marble

That title doesn't make any sense, but I was feeling Caesar-ish today, so there. Maybe I'll get a haircut, or a salad.

Marble Brewery, as always, is in the news today. Whole Foods is promoting Marble beers for the whole month of March with all varieties $1 off. But on Saturday 3/13, look for the six-packs to go down to $5.99 each! Marble rep. Jeff Taylor will be conducting a tasting at the Whole Foods on Academy from 2-4. If you're lucky, you may be able to sneak in a sip between his guzzles. Thanks to local comedian Solis for the tip. You can catch him entertaining a captive audience waiting for prescriptions at Walgreens pharmacy pretty much any day of the week.

Trader Joe's has added Marble bombers to their beer selection. Right now, they have the Double IPA and the Brown Ale, and should have the Oatmeal Stout in a few weeks. The Double goes for $5.79, the Brown $3.79. Good prices, but still not as cheap as Sunflower. Sunflower has the beers for $5.49 and $3.49, respectively. Still, neither stores beat the Whole Foods sale price, $4.99 and $2.99, even more respectfully. Most respectfully wishing you a drunken weekend,
