Being a mom is a 24/7 job, one that is often pretty draining. That’s why Timeless Pints was so happy to celebrate moms with a special event in the tasting room on Mother’s Day, May 10th, 2015.
One very special mom was actually working behind the bar that day. Your favorite beer-tender, Stacy, is a mother of three and a loyal Timeless Pints staff member. Although she loves being with her family, she says she felt just as loved being at work that day.
“I had so many people coming in and wishing me ‘Happy Mother’s Day,’ or bringing me little treats or flowers during my shift,” Stacy said. “This is by far the best job I’ve ever had, I feel like I get to hang out with my good friends all day.”
Stacy’s not the only mother at Timeless Pints. In addition to running the company, TP’s matriarch, Merri Sparacio, has two kids of her own and loves every minute of being a mom.
“On Mother’s Day, my ten year old son, rode his bike to the store, used his own money and bought me flowers. He was so excited to give them to me as soon as I woke up on Sunday,” Merri said. “It’s amazing to watch my kids give from their hearts. It makes me so proud when they put others before themselves.”
While Merri was enjoying her flowers at home, our Mother’s Day event was in full swing with live music from the Nightime band, delicious Mexican food served by Zaul’s Catering, beer specials for mom and a brand new beer on tap: The Timeless Pints Heather Lockbeer. This special release was a light Heather Ale, brewed with dried heather tips.
“The Heather was super popular with moms and they loved having a beer brewed just for them,” Stacy added. “I think it made the day that much more special for everyone!”
Our Mother’s Day event transformed the tasting room. There were strollers and kids and toys everywhere! We were happy to see so many moms enjoying a day out and relaxing with some of their favorite Timeless Pints beer.
“We love our moms so much,” Stacy said. “And Timeless Pints is a great spot to bring the kids, because sometimes you just want to be casual and hang out with a beer, while your kids run around and explore. It’s been a total kick to watch babies growing up in the brewery.”
Both Merri and Stacy say they wouldn’t trade being a mom for the world.
Stacy said, “It’s just the opportunity to be a part of the bigger picture. The idea that as a mom you are actually helping change the world by raising good people; accepting, thoughtful people, aware of the community and world they live in. Being a mom is a very big responsibility and the reward comes from seeing your children turn into socially and emotionally intelligent beings.”
Merri added, “Listening to my kids laugh, seeing them smile, watching them grow and being a part of their journey, melts my heart.”
Mother’s Day may be over, but it’s never too late to take a little time for yourself and unwind with friends in the Timeless Pints tasting room. We hope to see more moms and their kids at Timeless Pints all year long!
