Emy J’s Coffee Vault opens in Park Ridge
Have you heard? Emy J’s Coffeehouse has just opened its second location, the Coffee Vault, at 31 Park Ridge Drive in Park Ridge. This new spot, which officially opened its doors at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, is bigger than their downtown Stevens Point location on First Street. And guess what? It’s called the Coffee Vault because it pays homage to the building’s history as the former home of Pioneer Bank and First State Bank.
If you’ve been to Emy J’s before, you know what to expect from the menu. From their famous coffee to bakery items, smoothies, and a shake of the day, they’ve got it all. While the Park Ridge location doesn’t serve ice cream, it does offer nitro brews that are sure to tantalize your taste buds. For more information, visit Emy J’s Coffeehouse on Facebook.
Green Circle Trail gets a beer named in its honor
Beer lovers and nature enthusiasts rejoice! Point Brewery has just released a new brew called Green Circle Pale Ale, inspired by the picturesque Green Circle Trail. Did you know that the idea for this beer came from one of the brewery’s production workers, who is also an avid cyclist? He even designed the label himself.
According to Julie Birrenkott, Point Brewery’s marketing director, the Green Circle Pale Ale not only represents their hometown but also their values. The Stevens Point area community holds a special place in their hearts, and the Green Circle Trail is a big part of their recreational fun. Many Point Brewery employees and residents of central Wisconsin enjoy the trail for activities like walking their dogs and biking.
What sets this beer apart is the taste. Birrenkott describes it as bright, refreshing, and balanced, just like the lush and green surroundings of the Green Circle Trail in the summertime. The best part? The Green Circle Pale Ale is available year-round, and a portion of the proceeds from every sale goes to support the trail. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy a great beer while giving back to the community. Cheers to that!
