I was halfway expecting them to have a drawing for a Playstation 3 for the first 50 kids to ride along with their parents when I saw that in the All Around Wise today.

When they get Louis XIII they will be hip.

Well, in Redneck Kountry, a Feed, Seed, and Liquor Store would be hard to beat unless they had fish bait and firearm ammunition in addition to Feed and Seed and Liquor. Best of Luck to them.

Hip crowd? Bridgeport?

Bridgeport, TX???

HHL said...

um, yeah. that would be "Cristal", made by Louis Roederer. but what they probably have is a knock-off called "Crystal", which is Cook's with some crystal meth mixed in.

Either you are off base or their marketing plan is a little mixed up. They are trying to cater to the Hip Hop crowd by offering 2free Nascar Tickets?

Perhaps not.

Oh no Ryan, only non denominational no name churches have drawings like that.

zooboomafoo said...

they didn't even bother to spell the champagne name correctly...it's Cristal, not crystal.

Foh Shizzle my Nizzle!!!

Good catch, hhl & zoo -- my first thought too. "Um, great for the moronic hip-hop crowd, but that would be Cristal, Moonshine people."

Dummies.

Gorilla said...

I doubt the hip-hop crowd would be interested in a drawing for some Nascar tickets.

Actually we DID spell it right. Leave it to the newspaper's SPELL CHECK to correct it for us when they typed up our ad. Ah well... :(

And we do have a bottle of Louis XIII in stock! :-D

No one has Cristal but us. No one has Louis but us. Our goal is to be a store that is different and better than the others.

Regards,

Dusty @ Moonshine

Well, if you plan to cater to the hip hop crowd (doubtful) you won't be in business long. Nobody who cares that much for hip hop in B'port is over the age of 21. Kids usually come to their senses when they get their eyes opened to the real world
Hey! I'm just sayin'

Everyone needs to do their history on moonshiners. They started Nascar. Rednecks like Nascar. I didn't know they were catering just to hip hop crowd. I don't put myself in that description. I just needed to pick up liquor at an easy place to get in and out of. The feed and seed needs to do something about their driveway! Otherwise I will go to Moonshine no matter how they spell things! I can still read it even if I did graduate from Bridgeport! LOL!

We're definitely NOT catering to the hip hop crowd. In fact we aren't catering to any crowd. We carry the same stuff everyone else does plus we stock what the others do not.

Simple business plan really...friendly service, good prices, quick/easy in/out, and if we don't stock what you want just tell us and we'll start stocking it or start keeping it cold just for you.

Like the one person just said, moonshining goes hand in hand with NASCAR. A lot of people around here love NASCAR - to each their own! So yeah we're giving away 2 tickets to NASCAR on Saturday which we're paying almost $300 for...if you win and don't want to go then sell them for a couple hundred and call it a good day. :-)

Cheers,

Dusty @ Moonshine

Will the new liquor store have a back entrance for the Baptists?

Dusty, who do you think your catering to, then? Somehow I don't think you've thought your cunning plan through all the way. Who in Bridgeport has money to support the constant stock of Cristal and Louis XIII?

Whooooooo Weeeee this looks like as good a place as any for a BANJO breakdown.

Nomasayin?

The Baptists still buy out of town, preferably out of county.

Were drugs or alcohol involved?

Silicone Alley said...

Dusty... Since you are "definitely NOT catering to the hip hop crowd." Are you saying that you are a rasict!?

I bought 2 bottles of Cristal on Tuesday at Moonshine. It is impossible to get...

They carried it to my car for me! NICE!

Items such as Cristal and Louis XIII are novelty items. We do not have a business plan that requires us to sell these items to be successful. However, should someone want the best, we have it in stock. Nothing snobby or hip about it, we just wanted to have some different and unique items.

Moonshine is owned by 2 generations of local guys. We have Skol vodka all the way to Chopin vodka with everything in between (Smirnoff, Grey Goose, etc). Busch to Coors to Blue Moon to Fat Tire. Jarez to Jose to Don Julio to Gran Patron (another novelty item with a really cool box LOL).

The crowd we cater to is the crowd that wants quick and friendly service, good prices, and good selection.

Regards,

Dusty @ Moonshine

AnObiter said...

Aww, Dusty @ Moonshine sounds nice. I'll stop next time I'm over there. =) And Denney, you might've sold me on the Cristal -- does it mix well w/O.J.? lol I like straight-up champagne too....yummy.

BSG...time to start charging Dusty for advertising.

Dusty, if you have such great prices, why is your beer $4.00 more per case than other local merchants?

Anonymous said...

AnObiter - look forward to meeting you, please ask for me when you show up, if I am not there they'll call me, I'm only 2 minutes away.

Cheers,

10:16 - well, heck, we could ask Barry - he's a Baptist.

Anybody with such a fetish for boobs and butts surely adds a bit o' booze to the mix now and then.......

That's ok Barry. We love ya anyway!

Regarding our beer price - there's a chance that in pricing everything the first time (hundreds upon hundreds of products) we mis-keyed a price during initial setup. If you could be specific as to what beer is $4 higher I'll have it corrected immediately, with my apology.

However, having shopped the competition plenty, I can tell you that my Crown, Jose, Smirnoff, Malibu, Dewar's, Jager, and a few dozen other liquors are the cheapest around. Should a local competitor be cheaper just let us know at the counter and we'll do our best to match or beat it every time.

Out of hundreds of products there will always be a few products cheaper somewhere else, I would be silly to think otherwise.

But again if you'll let me know what beer I'll double check that price ASAP!

Thanks,

Dusty @ Moonshine

I was in the liquor business for about 10 years from owner/operator to manager of Centennial's biggest stores. I've stopped in a couple of times and I was pleasantly surprised. Nice looking store, friendly people and they were $6 a bottle cheaper on my bourbon than the "discount" store.

They also do not require a 4 wheel drive to get in and out of the parking lot. IMHO it's the best store in the county.

Keep up the good work Dusty!

Wow you've got some good experience in the industry rpm - we're always accepting constructive criticism! Thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you back again.

The weather is a little "blah" today, but the briskets have been smoking all night, so we're pushing on. Anyone come by for a sandwich or hot dog, plus we're having sales all day and the drawings to win prizes from 1pm to 5pm (NASCAR drawing is 5pm).

Regards,

Dusty @ Moonshine

Speaking of drugs. The best thing about being grown is on your days off choosing from 2 different types of herb, and eating a banana split for breakfast while watching Bob The Builder!
I guess all that was cool as a teenager but now your mom can't hassle you!
