Try as they might, home brewers cannot transform barley and hops into bubbly craft brews with the flick of a switch or a hearty whistle. For tools, equipment, and advice, brewers congregate at the Savannah Home Brew Shop, where they can sniff and sample specialty grains, yeast, and malts from Crosby & Baker. Students stock up on shiny new brewing equipment from Foxx while scouring available brewing books and magazines for the up-to-date trends and tips. The staff at Savannah Home Brew Shop can guide novices through their first fermented steps with home-brewing kits, as well as starter kits and supplies for wine makers. Seasoned brewers load up on brand-name liquid or dry yeasts, and hoist bulk bags of dry grain on their shoulders as they try to outrun the sprightly Saint Paulie girl that just stole their stein.
The staffers at Fine Designs Boutique meticulously scrutinize contemporary fashion trends to help curate their lineup of chic apparel, shoes, and accessories. Detailed tops and jackets dangle from the shop's racks alongside a stash of handbags, boots, and heels in seasonal designs. A smattering of colorful jewelry complements the sleek attire more elegantly than embroidering Shakespearean sonnets onto pockets.
The screen-printing sultans at Celebritees have concocted a trio of T-shirt designs to help dress green-minded revelers for Savannah's 2011 St. Patrick's Day festivities. Declare your love of all things sudsy and shamrocked by donning a light green tee with a screen-printed six-pack of sweet shamrock soda and the slogan "Add fizz to your St. Patty's Day!" or show your support for colors with proper names by choosing between two Kelly green options—a classic four-leaf clover decal with the date "March 17th" printed on the back or a collection of festive cups advertising "Savannah's St. Patrick's Day Shenanigans.” Tees are available in sizes small through extra large. Buyers should call or email firstname.lastname@example.org with their desired size and design, and allow three business days for shipping.
