Press Release: Arena Bar and Grill’s Beer Baskets Make Perfect Gifts

Need help finding gifts for everyone on your holiday list? Look no farther than Arena Bar and Grill.

The region’s premiere bar and restaurant has gotten into the spirit of the season and will be offering its one-of-a-kind beer baskets again this year. The baskets are custom-made by Arena Bar and Grill co-owner Nicole Theodore.

With prices ranging from $10 to $150, the baskets are highly affordable. Just tell Nicole the amount that you would like to spend, and she will create a basket that won’t break your holiday shopping budget. Or, base your basket on the style of beers that you want included.

"I’ll work with every customer to design a unique and affordable beer basket that will make a truly special holiday gift," Nicole says.

Nicole includes coasters, keychains, beer coozies or glassware in every beer basket. Other baskets feature beer signs, hats and T-shirts.

Arena Bar and Grill’s extensive bottled beer menu ensures a wide selection of brews from which to choose. Fill your basket with imports from England, such as Monty Python’s Holy Grail, Old Peculiar and Hobgoblin.

To quench the thirst of the adventurous drinker on your list, try a basket of Arena Bar and Grill’s microbrewery selections, including Ace Pear Cider, Lancaster Milk Stout and Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat.

Nicole suggests a custom-made "Beers from Around the World" basket. This basket features Arena Bar and Grill’s most popular draft beers.

Last year, Arena Bar and Grill spread lots of holiday cheer by selling more than 850 holiday beer baskets.

Beer basket orders can be placed in person at Arena Bar and Grill or by telephone. Baskets cannot be shipped due to Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board laws.

While ordering your beer basket, Arena Bar and Grill invites you to enjoy their fine food and drink. Order a delicious meal, sample some of Arena Bar and Grill’s 50 beers on draft or 250 bottled selections, and take a break from the craziness of the malls and stores. That’s holiday shopping Arena Bar and Grill style.
