Chico’s Pico in Sports Illustrated

Beimel Sports Illustrated

(click to enlarge)

It seems like just yesterday that we saw our name in Sports Illustrated magazine. Here’s a photo of the page where Joe Beimel gave us our first nationwide shout out. Back when the issue first dropped we were thrilled that he liked our salsa. Today we can hardly believe that he’s now part of the Chico Posse and working with us to help spread the Chico love to clubhouses across the nation.

Thanks Joe!

Soaked in beer

Beer SoakedIt looks like the guys over at BeerSoaked.com have joined the Chico Posse. They had some nice things to say about us and are spreading the word about Chico’s Pico on their site. So we’re going to help them out by sending you a link to their site.

From the looks of it, the site is run by a few So Cal guys who really like beer. They’ve got craft beer reviews, tips on how to make friends, and information on brewery events and store recommendations. All with a laid back casual writing style.

I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I’ll be checking out BeerSoaked for some advice.
