May Brewsletter


We’re pleased to announce that our May Beer of the Month is none other than Ellicottville Brewing Company! This month when you buy (two) 6-pks of EBC beer, you’ll receive a $10 gift card to use at the Ellicottville brewery! So mix-and-match with all of their different varieties and then head down to the brewery and see where it’s made for yourself!

Starting May 5th, we’re going ‘back to the well’ for the Kentucky Derby. Run, trot, or gallop to your closest Consumer’s Growler Filling Station prior to this Saturday’s horse race (6:34pm). When you purchase any 64oz growler fill, we’ll print the name of a participating horse on your receipt. If your horse wins the Kentucky Derby, you win a FREE growler fill!

Mother’s Day is May 14th and Mom deserve the best. So why buy her a dozen roses that will wilt and die when you can buy her a dozen beers that she can share with you? Swing by, grab a 12pk, and share more than just your love this Mother’s Day.

During the entire month of May, stop into any Consumer’s Beverages to fill out an entry form for a chance to win a Weber Genesis grill courtesy of Budweiser. No purchase necessary! We’ll be picking the winner on May 31st!

Cinco de Mayo is upon us and Consumer’s Beverages has all  of your fiesta beer in stock and ready to be enjoyed. Stop in to one of our 17 locations and make your Cinco de Mayo  ‘muy bueno’. We’ve got a few of our favorites cervesas suggested below…

Please note that our Memorial Day store hours (Monday, May 29, 2017) will be 9:00am-7:00pm. Cheers!
