<![CDATA[Czeched Out]]>Fri, 10 Nov 2023 07:00:00 GMThttp://secondchapterbrewing.com/blog/czeched-out
When your book club chooses the latest bestseller, but the audiobook is checked out from the library, our best advice is to look smart: bring a six-pack of this dark lager to your club meeting. Better yet, suggest holding your meet-up at the brewery!

Featuring a sophisticated blend of aromatic and roasted malt barley, this Czech Dark Lager has a full and delicious flavor, without any heaviness. Make sure to Czech it out.

Does anyone else in your book club actually read the books anyway?

Style: Czech Dark Lager
ABV: 4.6%
Available in 5 oz. and 16 oz. pours, as well as in 16 oz to-go cans while supplies last.

This was one of our first eight beers on tap. Come Czech out why we were so eager to bring it back!

Speaking of books...we've got a little literary buzz coming up!

<![CDATA[Drink Local]]>Mon, 30 Oct 2023 06:00:00 GMThttp://secondchapterbrewing.com/blog/drink-local
Thank you for drinking #NebraskaBrewed beer all throughout #drinklocalne month! Breweries help drive positive development in both rural and urban communities across this great state.

We must admit that we cheated a little on the pledge to drink only Nebraska beers this month though... A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to join others from our county and from across Nebraska to visit several Kansas communities as part of #E3 (Energizing Entrepreneurial Ecosystems). We made sure to sample some brews from across our southern border while we were there!

One thing that stood out in many towns throughout our tour was that #breweries and #taprooms serving local beer are often a cornerstone of a community. We are proud to have established #Ogallala's first brewery here at #SecondChapter Brewing.

Cheers to drinking local!

<![CDATA[#PrycePower: Clear Our Shelves!]]>Fri, 20 Oct 2023 16:41:27 GMThttp://secondchapterbrewing.com/blog/prycepower-clear-our-shelves
On Monday, October 16, 8-year-old Pryce Gette was severely injured in a car accident. We happened to be talking with his parents, Reggie Skinner and Jeff Gette, when they got the phone call that no parent ever wants to receive.

We have been fortunate to get to know Reggie, Jeff, and Pryce much better over the past year, as they are members at the brewery, vendors of nearly all of our customized merchandise, friends, and community members. Pryce has been a gymnastics and soccer buddy to our son, and he has been known to entertain a whole taproom with his tractor noises or card tricks!

Pryce has a long road to recovery ahead of him and we would like to support his family.

Throughout October, we will donate 10% of all of our merchandise sales directly to the Skinner-Gette family. Help us clear our shelves so that we can order more from 5 Star Custom Designs and support their business too.

Online sales for taproom pickup or shipping are also available from our website: Online store.

Please share and spread some love to this family.
Much as we anticipated, we're not the only ones who want to help the Gette-Skinner family during this difficult time. If you'd like to join in and support Pryce Gette's recovery, don't be shy. Please copy this idea and make it work for your business.

In our case, we're pledging to donate 10% of all our merchandise sales for the rest of the month to the family. We chose this because it will help clear our shelves and prompt more orders from their family business, 5 Star Custom Designs.

​Do what works for you. We suspect they're going to need all types of help during his recovery. Message us if you want to bounce an idea. Cross-promote other businesses. Share. Pray. Donate or shop their stuff if you can.
