Gilbert Days Parade 2018

By | Events | No Comments

Yee Ha!

Horses, marching bands, kids and coffee, what do these things have in common?  The Gilbert Days Parade of course!

This iconic event will be held next Saturday, November 17th, 2018 at 8:30 am and will travel South on Gilbert Road and pass right in front of our own Bergies Coffee Roast House.  For the past 9 years Bergies has offered one of the best seats in town to watch the parade while enjoying a great drink and a delicious pastry.

This event has been taking place for over 60 years. The parade is only one of several events scheduled this next week, including a rodeo and a half marathon. These events are promoting community in addition to celebrating our heritage and unique community.

The parade is truly a throwback to a form of entertainment that doesn’t involve a computer, or cell phone.  It’s a chance to bring young and old together to laugh at the clowns, run for candy thrown from the floats or just cheer on your favorite marching band or dance troupe in the parade.

In addition, to the parade a half marathon will also be happening in the lane next to the parade. Be sure to give those tired runners some encouragement also.

I so appreciate that the Town of Gilbert continues to keep our parade a priority.  As part of the ever- changing Heritage District it is refreshing to have an event that provides more family friendly entertainment.

If you would like more specific details on times and road closures be sure to check out this link https://www.gilbertaz.gov/Home/Components/News/News/2775/17

We will have no live music on this day.

One last note, I want to thank our amazing customers for their patience and loyalty during the continued construction zone surrounding our business.  We know how frustrating it is to find parking and our quiet garden many times is filled with construction noise.

Many things continue to change around us but be assured Bergies is committed to continue with the priorities that make your visit not just about a great drink but about the your entire experience.

 

We are so thankful for this community and the opportunity to serve you.

Happy Gilbert Days!

Summer Classes @ Bergies!

Summer Classes at Bergies Gilbert

It’s hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from the official beginning of summer! Even though we all know living in Arizona means it feels like summer right now.

Since the last time I have blogged so much has changed in our Heritage District and here at Bergies.  We continue to welcome more new neighbors to our District and at times the construction zones seem never ending.

With change comes new opportunities and yes challenges.  One of the challenges we continue to face is parking issues.  We do have good news for our grab and go customers. We now have four short term designated parking spaces in front of Bergies.

Additionally, we are working on creative ideas for our beans customers to have an easier time picking up the roasted beans they love without having to drive around endlessly looking for parking.  Stay tuned, we hope to announce several options for easy pickup in the very near future.

EVENTS

We are also announcing new summer hours beginning June 1st.  Since our live music stops in the evenings after Memorial Day we will be closing at 6:00 pm on Friday and Saturday nights.  Don’t despair though we have a full schedule of morning music scheduled every Saturday and Sunday morning, featuring both new and familiar Bergies musicians.

More good news! We have seven great classes on the June schedule. With Coffee education and crafting classes being offered we have something for everyone.  Two of the classes will be taught by our coffee masters, Brian and Bruce. In addition, Jeannette and Jazlen will be leading some fun crafts for all ages.  Be sure to check out our events schedule and sign up as space is limited in all classes.

If you’re not sure about our classes look for someone who has attended in the past and their sure to tell you how much fun and educational these classes can be.

Our classes also provide the opportunity to connect with the community and possibly make some new great friends. This community building is what Bergies is all about.

Finally, June is the month to celebrate our dads and Bergies is all in.  Look for a special treat and drink for Father’s Day. In addition, in June each time you purchase a cold brew growler you will be entered in a drawing to win a gift set for Dad for Father’s Day.  The set includes one of our artisan cold brew concentrate growlers, a grilling set and a custom Bergies coffee rub for your amazing dad.

Not familiar with our concentrate growler? Next time you are the shop   be sure to ask one of our barista’s all the great ways to use this cold brew concentrate or sign up for Jeannette’s class to taste her amazing cold brew desserts.

We look forward to seeing you soon and don’t forget that coffee or cold brew before you head out on that vacation.  We don’t want you to have to settle for bad coffee while you are away!

As always, we appreciate you.

What’s happening this summer?

By | Events | No Comments

We already have started the month of August, can you believe it? Time goes so fast and things are changing so quickly here in the Heritage District.
The two construction projects directly North of us are in full swing with one project set to open in October. At Bergies we have had a few changes also this summer. Our garden is in a bit of disrepair as we deal with our temporary fence and construction issues .No worries though, a lot of new ideas will be to implemented outside once we have a real wall on our North border. In the mean time come in and check out improvements to our outdoor area and great new products.

New items for sale in the shop include Bergies mugs from Deneen Pottery pictured in the photo above. Each of these mugs are hand thrown and unique. They are available in two color options and would make a great gift for any Bergies fan.

We are also selling our signature cold brew in a concentrate. It is packaged in a custom 32 ounce refillable growler. You never need to miss out on one of your favorites with this easy to transport growler. The concentrate is designed to mix to taste with ice, water, or your preferred creamer. The growler is also refillable at a discounted rate. If you prefer to make your own at home our cold brew blend in whole beans are also available. If you haven’t been in to buy whole beans recently we have a great new look with our custom designed Bergie’s coffee bags. New look but no worries The bag discount on whole beans still applies.
If you are looking for something educational or relaxing in the next few weeks we Have three more classes scheduled this summer. Brian will be teaching brewing basics/discover your roast in August. Or if you just want relaxing fun come on in to do a coloring class or coffee mug decorating with friends. You can get details and costs on our website or call or come into the shop.

Last but not least you can still enjoy live music every Saturday and Sunday Morning on our patio. We have our misters plus and evap cooler now. The heat may be getting you down but we will continue to lift your spirits with a great drink and a smile with your next visit. You can also look forward to evening music returning in September and some more pop-up events to be announced soon. So get in here and experience the Bergies difference!
As always we appreciate you,
