March Madness in Tucson

The saying is that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Let’s hope so! Here we are in the second week of this crazy month, enjoying 90 degree weather, after suffering through all of those grueling weeks of winter weather.  😉  The timing couldn’t be any better, tho, as the city gets set to host the Annual Tucson Festival of Books.

If you are heading to the Festival this weekend, make sure you take your Festival guide  or download the mobile app. There will be more than enough literary fun to fill both days and you won’t want to miss any of it. And if this weekend isn’t enough for you, Brewd has a couple of other fun book related events this month. (Mark your calendars for the next Writer’s Read, coming March 23rd.)

To make sure you don’t run out of fuel, we will have breakfast burritos, ready to go with your coffee or tea drink. While you’re at it, grab a bottle of water to throw in your bag for later. And remember, you can call ahead to place your order, if you are in a real hurry! For those who are not in a hurry, we have some special cinnamon roll pancakes, just for this weekend! Maybe you should take a few extra minutes and linger over your breakfast, then head to the Festival.

Of course, the madness doesn’t stop this weekend. All of Wildcat nation is alive with Cat fever! While the Wildcat Men’s basketball team works their way through the Pac-12 Tournament, we cross our collective fingers that they will be going to the Big Dance again this year. It’s been a great year so far, for our cardiac Cats, and nobody wants to see it end.

Whether you love reading or basketball (or both, like we do), we hope you will make Brewd part of your fun this month.

Sharing the Love

Here we are in the season of love. What could be better than sharing all of the love? We had such a great response to our holiday promotion, which allowed our customers to Donate their Free Drinks to charity, that we have decided to continue the practice all year long! At present we are collecting these donations for the same charities as we did during the holidays: Youth on Their Own, Gospel Rescue Mission and Sold No More.
We now wish to ask you, our customers, for input as to which charities we should collect these donations for in the future. We love that we can give back to our community this way, but we would like to make sure we spread the love around to as many groups as possible.

Here’s your chance! Let us know which charities you would like to see on this list.

So Much New Goodness

It’s hard to believe that we are already in February! On December 7th we celebrated our third year anniversary in the Sabino Canyon neighborhood and the rest of the year was a blur! The new year, so far, has not slowed down. Our team has been busy creating new offerings for our customers and we hope you have stopped in to check things out.  

We have new baked goods and seasonal items to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings. All of the new items are baked in house with the freshest ingredients. We have been experimenting with new salads and sides.

We are also perking up our weekend breakfasts! Over time, we have pared down our food service so as to provide the quickest possible service for our weekday customers. Now, due to popular demand, our team is creating special menu items for our weekend customers. We are excited for the opportunity to expand our offerings and show off some of our team member’s creativity.

The special items will change weekly. This week we are serving Biscuits and gravy (made with vegetarian sausage) and a Special Strawberry Amazing French Toast.

The food will be more interesting on the weekends, and the new offerings won’t end there. We can’t wait to share with you the other changes at Brewd in the months to come!  To stay on top of the very latest news follow us on social media:  Facebook.com/brewdtucson, Twitter.com/brewd1 and Instagram.com/brewdtucson.

Remembering the reason for the season

Here we are, finishing the first week of December. Are you feeling stressed yet? Please don’t! School is winding down for winter breaks. For you older students,  it’s Finals time! uggh! How about you make this the time when you STOP and remember, the holidays are not the time for stress?  They are a time to remember what (and who) is important. They are a time to make memories with your family and friends. Most importantly,  they are a time to count your blessings and bless others. 

Brewd wants to help you enjoy the season. First,  we might be able to alleviate some of the stress of gift giving by offering gift cards as well as a number of other gift ideas for the coffee and tea lovers in your life.  Second, let us help you to slow down while blessing others. In addition to the box for donations to Aviva Children’s Services ,  we also will be making donations to several local charities, on behalf of our customers.  Just ask how you can be a part of that gift, by “donating your free drink” to the cause of your choice. 

We also will be assembling stockings at Brewd on Saturday, December 10th, to give to the women at the VA Hospital .  Come out from 1:00-4:00pm on Saturday and help us put the finishing touches  on these stockings for our women Veterans. It’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face, as you bless others. And isn’t that really the reason for the season?
