Bauer’s 12 Days of Christmas Sale Starts Friday!

Happy Holidays from Sofia!

Happy Holidays from Sofia!

We’ve always done our best to bring you the best products possible in every price range, whether you’ve heard of them before or not. Well, in the spirit of holiday cheer and generosity, we’re going to take it up a notch. Starting on Friday, December 13th 2013, we’ll have a huge one-day sale on one item every day until Christmas!

Here’s the catch – sale prices will be LOW and only available for one day each. Promoted products are available at the special price in-store only (no delivery), but we’ll gladly include them in a delivery order if your other purchases meet our minimum for your delivery zone.

There’s no peeking at what our 12 sales are going to be, but we’ll give you a hint: a mix of spirits, wine, beer, and other goodies that are perfect for gifts or your own enjoyment! Check this blog, Facebook, or Twitter each day to see what we’re putting on special.

Whatever winter holiday you celebrate, we wish you nothing but the best and are tremendously thankful for your business this past year! We hope to see you this month for all of your holiday gift, party, and celebratory needs.


How to Enjoy Your Last Month of Summer


We only have one month of summer left! As much as I love fall in Boston (crisp air, colorful leaves, and a break from the heat), I’m not quite ready for summer to be over. There are many more drinks to be enjoyed on the patio, steaks and veggies to be grilled, and – with any luck – another day at the beach.

While I normally stick with light, refreshing seasonal beer throughout the summer, I’ve made my way through an interesting array of cocktails and wines as well. A huge discovery for me was the Pimm’s Cup, an unbelievably quenching cocktail built around Pimm’s No. 1, a fruity, floral, and herbal gin-based spirit. With lemon juice, simple syrup, club soda, and relatively low alcohol content, it makes a great daytime sipper on a lazy summer day. With wines, my favorite has been the 2012 Hada Verdejo-Viura, a Spanish white wine from the Rueda region. With snappy, bright citrus aromas that follow through to a delicate, lingering finish, this has been my standby wine for seafood dishes all summer. Of course, when it’s time for a beer I continue to stand by my old fallback – Schöfferhofer Grapefruit. Half weisse beer, half grapefruit juice, this beer has all of the classic hefewiezen characteristics (banana/clove in the nose, bready malt on the palette) complemented superbly with tart, aromatic grapefruit. Don’t like fruit in your beer? Take a deep breath and try it – you won’t be disappointed.

A quick introduction as well – my name is Jeff and this is my first week with the Bauer team. I’m really looking forward to meeting you all and hope I can introduce myself to you next time you’re in the store!
