Buehler’s Introduces Big Beer Exchange at Wooster Milltown

Big-Beer-1

As part of the Buehler’s Fresh Foods Wooster Milltown remodeling project, the store now offers fresh draft beer on tap. The new “Big Beer Exchange,” is located in the Beer Department and features eight tap varieties of craft and specialty beers. Reusable glass containers, also known as Growlers, are available in 32 and 64 ounce sizes. Growlers are filled while you wait to take home and enjoy your favorite brews. Tap offerings will include limited releases, as well as offerings from local breweries: JAFB-Wooster Brewery, Millersburg Brewery, and The Brew Kettle Brewery in Strongsville. Draft beer taste samples are available for 25¢.

You can find out what’s on tap on the Wooster Big Beer Facebook page.

“The opportunity to sample any of the high-quality draft beers prior to purchasing a Growler is a real benefit to our customers,” stated Jack Kerby, Buehler’s Wooster Milltown Store Manager. “And with the addition of the Wine Tasting Bar, customers have the chance to sit down and relax with a glass of wine.”

The new Wine Department includes a Wine Tasting Bar where customers may select from a range of wines to purchase a 5-ounce glass for $5 or up. With the expansion of the Wine and Beer Departments, Buehler’s now boasts one of the largest selections in the area with over 1,000 wines and 800 beers. The inclusion of the State Liquor Agency store, conveniently located next to this department, offers over 1,000 spirits.

Work continues on the expansion of the front entrance. This inviting new space will welcome customers with doors on either side, and will house the shopping carts. The new KidzPark location has moved to its permanent home near checkouts, with a colorful, hands-on space to entertain children while parents shop. An additional new concept to Milltown, the Community Room, is taking shape, and will be available to the public for meetings and gatherings.

Customers will witness transformations to the Bakery Department (made from scratch production), Chef’s Kitchen (expanded food selections of hot or cold foods for take home or dining in), and The Kitchen Table (sit down causal dining) in the weeks ahead. These new concepts are not only unique to Buehler’s, but unique to our region and transcend supermarket perceptions. The remodel will be completed prior to the holidays.

Buehler’s, founded in 1929, is celebrating eighty-five years as an independent, family-owned and operated grocer. Buehler’s is recognized as a pacesetter in the industry, and is positioned for growth as a trusted business partner.

Buehler’s Fresh Foods Nationally Recognized by EPA’s GreenChill Partnership

Buehlers-GreenChill-Awards-photoBuehler’s has been nationally recognized with two U.S. Environmental Protection Agency GreenChill Partnership Awards for 2013. The Most Improved Emissions Rate award recognizes Buehler’s for lowering its refrigerant emissions rate more than any other supermarket in the GreenChill Partnership. Additionally, Buehler’s met its refrigerant emissions goal for 2013 to earn “Superior Goal Achievement” award.

“GreenChill is pleased to honor Buehler’s Fresh Foods with its second GreenChill Most Improved Emissions Rate award and Superior Goal Achievement award,” said Tom Land, GreenChill Program Manager. “Buehler’s achieved two notable feats in 2013. First they achieved a larger reduction in their refrigerant emissions rate versus 2012 levels than any other GreenChill partner. Second, Buehler’s has achieved a larger reduction in their emissions rate compared to their first year in the partnership than any other partner”

EPA’s GreenChill Partnership 2014 award ceremony was held at the Food Marketing Institute Energy & Store Development Conference in St. Louis, MO, on September 8th at 7:00 a.m. EPA’s GreenChill Partnership holds a ceremony once a year to present its Achievement Awards.  Becky Foster, Buehler’s Vice President Construction and Maintenance, received the awards for Buehler’s based on her efforts with Dan Steffen of Harrison Refrigeration, Buehler’s Refrigeration contractor.

EPA’s GreenChill Partnership works with supermarkets to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change. The Partnership helps supermarkets transition to environmentally friendlier refrigerants; reduce harmful refrigerant emissions; and adopt greener refrigeration technologies and environmental best practices. There are approximately 8,000 GreenChill partner stores throughout the nation. For more information on EPA’s GreenChill Partnership, please visit www.epa.gov/greenchill.

GreenChill partner stores have much lower leak rates than average stores in the U.S. If every supermarket reduced its leak levels to the GreenChill average, the supermarket industry could save more than $100 million in refrigerant replacement costs and reduce emissions by about 27 million metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent.

Becky Foster, Buehler’s Vice President Construction and Maintenance, states that “…this is just one of many environmental and sustainability issues we address as a company.  We were innovators in the 1970’s by reclaiming the heat generated from our refrigeration compressors to heat our stores. In recent years, we have undertaken many projects to decrease electricity usage, including evolving light technologies, refrigeration innovations, and recycling programs both within Buehler’s and for the communities we serve. We recycle food waste into our Buehler’s Bagged Compost sold in our stores and at select ACE Hardware stores in the region. Buehler’s demonstrates its commitment to environmentally responsible behavior through its actions.”
