Get 20% Back On Select Gift Cards


Stumped for holiday gift ideas for that very special person in your life who also happens to be a craft-beer enthusiast? We’ve got a solution for you that pays off handsomely and immediately for you, too.

Through Christmas Eve when you purchase a $100 Auburn Alehouse gift card, you’ll receive a $20 gift card instant bonus. Give a Benjamin, get a Jackson. Alternatively, purchase a $50 gift card and instantly receive another $10 bonus gift card. That’s a better-than-Black-Friday windfall of 20%.

Your recipient can use the card for any purchase at the Alehouse—craft beer and food at the bar and restaurant, or your loved one or friend can go shopping for new logo-imprinted clothing and accessories. Just how many growlers can you refill for $100? Your recipient will have an opportunity to find out. . .or better yet, roll over the card into a Mug Club lifetime membership. And what you do with your bonus cards is nobody’s business but yours!

Just one restriction: there is a limit of $500 per person in card purchases. Offer ends at the close of business on December 24.

Alehouse gift cards, which are terrific stocking stuffers, work just like pre-paid debit cards with magnetic stripes. Amounts of each purchase are tracked until the limit is reached. Cards do not expire.

So make it easy for yourself and put smiles on faces with a fistful of Auburn Alehouse gift cards.

Finish Your Holiday Shopping at the Alehouse

If gift cards aren’t exactly your gift bag, you can still get’er done by backing your sleigh up to the Alehouse and shop for great gifts from our new stock of apparel, accessories and tasty beer gifts. Here are some ideas to consider:

Gift baskets. . .or more precisely, gift trays. This is an Alehouse twist on a classic Yule season go-to expression of your love, but instead of using a basket to deliver a selection of gifts, we start with a handsome and colorful Alehouse beer service tray ($20). Then it is up to the gift-giver to decide how to load it up. You can start with a couple of 22-ounce bottles or a growler of craft beer and an Alehouse signature pint glass. Add a wearable item: choose from tees, sweatshirts, hats and beanies. You can create a package that will make your beer aficionado swoon and is perfect for any budget. Make it a perfect present by adding a gift card for an additional amount of your choosing.

Gifts for the clothes horse in your world. Just in time for the holidays, we’ve replenished our inventory of our most popular apparel items. We have a wide selection of colors, sizes and styles in both men’s and women’s options.

How about a lifetime Mug Club membership for just $100? Now that’s a great idea for a gift that keeps on giving. In addition to being treated like royalty, here’s what to expect:
–Members receive a full 18 ounces instead of a 16-ounce pint when they purchase our craft beer at the bar or restaurant and show their membership card.
–Annual free birthday lunch, up to $12, and a beer free tee shirt every calendar year.
–Recieve 10% discounts on retail purchases from the Alehouse signature apparel store and on tickets to special entertainment events, like concerts and holiday parties.
–“Member’s-Only” invitations to free beer-tasting events (approximately quarterly).


Barrel-Aged Barleywine is Nearly Sold Out

An Alehouse original, the 2014 vintage of Brewmaster Brian Ford’s Barrel-Aged Old Prospector Barleywine, was released just before Thanksgiving and it is now nearly sold out. Speaking of sold out, the recent Barleywine dinner hosted at the Alehouse, which paired a sumptuous menu and this amazing craft beverage sold out even quicker than last year.

This wine-strength ale has been greatly enhanced through long-slumbering contact with zinfandel-soaked barrels sourced from Placer County’s Dono Dal Cielo winery. A bouquet of soft oak, plum and raisin give way to a peppery zinfandel profile which balances nicely with complex malt and a gentle hop presence.

A very limited quantity of the Barleywine Ale is still available for sale at $13 per bottle, but here’s an even better idea as a holiday gift: Buy a bottle of Barleywine and a logo snifter glass for $19 and we will throw in a second snifter glass for FREE! Barleywine is great for sharing so why not grab a friend or loved one and enjoy it together this holiday season.

Alehouse Hours For The Holidays

The Auburn Alehouse is closed on Christmas Day every year so that staff can enjoy this important holiday with family and friends. And, for the first time, the Alehouse will close early on New Year’s Eve. Food service will end at 7 p.m. and the bar will close at 8 p.m

“There will be no formal New Year’s Eve celebration,” said Brewmaster and co-owner Brian Ford. “Many people will be celebrating safely at home, and that’s what we plan to do.”

The restaurant will reopen for breakfast on New Year’s Day at 10 a.m. for our official Hair of the Dog Party! We will have three Bloody Mary options from the mind of Kelly Perkins, so you know they will be great. The breakfast menu will be expanded and will run until 2 p.m. Trust us to have everything you need to cure your hangover!
