Pievalta 2015 Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi hails from the Ancona province of the Italian coastal region of Marche. Clay and limestone soils amplify fresh minerality and freshness of fruit character. Hints of sweet almonds and a streak of citrus show in this lightly aromatic varietal wine. Because Verdicchio maintains high levels of tartaric acidity, the wine can be crisp, refreshing and highly age-worthy. Verdicchio excels when paired with all things seafood, such as ceviche, steamed mussels and fish tacos. Beautiful wine!

Winter Brews

Coffee, oatmeal, brown ale. Incredibly rich undertones of brown sugar, caramel and graham cracker. With one pound of Speakeasy coffee per brewery barrel added post fermentation which creates a prominent nose and taste of coffee.

Maui CoCoNut Porter – 96 points Rate Beer

Our Coconut Porter is a classic robust porter spiced with all natural toasted coconut. It is black in color and crowned with a creamy, dark tan head. It begins with a malty-toasted-coconut aroma followed by a rich, silky mouthfeel with tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. It then finishes with flavors of toasted coconut and hoppy spice to balance the finish.

Oskar Blues Ten Fiddy – 100 Points Rate Beer

This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. Ten FIDY (10.5% ABV) is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops. Ten FIDY is the ultimate celebration of dark malts and boundary-stretching beer.

Rheingeist/ Sun King Emergency Malt Kit Scotch Ale

Our malt senses are tingling. We joined forces with our pals over at @sunkingbrewing in Indy to whip up Emergency Malt Kit, a lumberjack of a brew jam-packed with oodles of malty goodness. A Scottish 100 Shilling, Emergency Malt Kit is a scotch-ale-meets-belgian-dark-hybrid, a tantalizing melding of our Mastodon and Sun King’s Wee Muckle. We hope this bad boy pleases your palate and gives you a flannelly, chocolatey and deeply malty two-state bear hug.

Wormtown Brewing Spies Like Us Russian Imperial Stout

The cold war may be over, but our Russian Imperial Stout is just getting started. Rich, roasted malts, gentle British hopping with earthy Fuggles hops help create just the right balance and character that this style is famed for. Our label pays tribute to our three secret agents; Tom, David, and Ben, who when they are not saving the world from nuclear war, are helping bring Wormtown to everyone who loves great beer.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Inspired Beers

Mexican Hot Chocolate Inspired Beers

Stone Xocoveza

A winter-spiced mocha stout

Harmoniously layered with cocoa, Mostra coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk sugar, this beer is an insanely delicious take on Mexican hot chocolate. Thanks entirely to you and fan demand, it has gone from being a one-time offering to a yearly tradition too special to skip. Feel free to enjoy it long into the winter months because this festive beer will age beautifully and is definitely not exclusive to the holidays!

Epic Big Bad Baptista

Big Bad Baptista is inspired by traditional Mexican coffee, Café de Olla, which is served with cinnamon and piloncillo, an unrefined sugar. The Cinnamon adds another layer of complexity and accentuates the earthy character of Mexican Coffee, but more importantly, it captures the essence of a place and its culture. As beverage geeks we wanted to pay homage to that rich tradition and offer our unique take.

Big Bad Baptista is a combination of Vanilla, Cinnamon, Mexican coffee roasted by Blue Copper, and Solstice Chocolate cacao nibs. It’s luxurious to say the least, with a pleasant warming sensation generated by the cinnamon and alcohol. Enjoying the interplay of chocolate, malt, oak, and spice is the perfect way to spend a cool evening, with friends around a fire.

Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti

Great Divide Best Denver Brewery Great Divide Brewing Company Yeti Colette Titan

CHOCOLATE OAK AGED YETI IMPERIAL STOUT is another revered incarnation of our legendary imperial stout. We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. Another great Yeti? Hell yes.

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale 6.5% ABV

The beer drinker’s pumpkin beer! “Since 2003, we’ve brewed Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale with real pumpkin and a blend of classic pumpkin pie spices in tribute to our colonial forebearers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins have been found from early European settlers in New England, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and “pompions.””

Captain Lawrence Autumn Blaze Pumpkin Ale 5% ABV

This is the perfect beer to drink as the weather starts to turn a bit cooler. Brewed with pureed pumpkins added directly to the mash, and traditional pumpkin pie spices add to the end of the boil, this beer packs a ton of flavor into a malty and smooth amber colored ale.

Paulaner Oktoberfest 5.8% ABV

Is an amber beer style that was developed over 200 years ago to celebrate the original Oktoberfest.

It will instantly turn your own four walls into an Oktoberfest tent. Prost!

Paulaner Oktoberfest Wiesn 6% ABV

This golden Oktoberfest lager is the only beer served in Paulaner Oktoberfest tents today. It also happens to be the best-selling Oktoberfest beer in Germany.

At 6% ABV, it is stronger and bolder that the usual lager.

Ballast Point Pumpkin Down Scottish Ale with Pumpkin 5.8% ABV

Some might think we’re out of our gourd for making a pumpkin ale, but our Pumpkin Down is not like the others. The caramel and toffee maltiness of our Piper Down Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin. Just before bottling, we add a subtle amount of spice to complement, but not overwhelm, the earthy flavor. It was a smash at the brewery, and we think you’ll agree.

Ballast Point Dead Ringer Oktoberfest Lager 6% ABV

A fresh take on a traditional festival beer. Dead Ringer Oktoberfest lager is inspired by old-style Märzen brews customarily enjoyed during Bavaria’s world-famous beer festival.

Art in the Age Root Liquor

“Here at Art in the Age, we thought it would be interesting and fun to turn back the clock and recreate a true pre-temperance alcoholic Root Tea. We’ve even made it certified organic, since back then, everything was organic. This is the opposite of corporate culture. It’s a genuine experience rooted in history and our own landscape. It is a truly interesting and contemplative quaff. Certainly like nothing else we have ever tasted before. It is NOT Root Beer flavored vodka or a sickly sweet liqueur.”

New Gins to Try!

New Gins to Try

Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Gin

Mad of juniper and raw honey. It’s a refreshing gin that is easy – even for gin novices to wrap their heads around. Every element of the gin is preset, well done, clearly identifiable and as an added bonus well balanced. The nose is subtle and understated. A slight sweet and mild juniper note is evident but quiet. The taste is simple and elegant.  On the palate it begins with a lot of smoothness, when suddenly a bouquet of almost floral sweetness hits you.

Edinburgh gin

A storied history, Edinburgh was an epicenter of distillation in the 1700’s this gin was launched in 2010 and is distilled with the classic gin botanicals (juniper, coriander, citrus peel, angelica and orris root) plus the edition of Scottish juniper, pine, heather and milk thistle. With a nod to the art deco style of the 1920’s the simple bottle design is a classic. On the nose it opens up with aromas of walking though a forest on a crisp fall day.

Gin Mare Artisanal gin

Gin mare has long been the reference point for a gin that’s pushed the boundary of what a gin could taste like.  They start by distilling many botanicals independently such as rosemary, thyme, olive, basil and a citrus blend of Seville oranges and Lleida lemons. Its savory and unusually but balanced; and made in the small Spanish fishing town of Villanova just outside of Barcelona.

Sipsmith London Dry Gin

“ Sipsmith: where old meets new and the 2 hit it off really quite spectacularly” Sipsmith Sam

The quintessential expression of a classic traditional London dry gin. Bold, complex, and aromatic. Botanicals blended are Macedonian juniper berries, Bulgarian coriander seed, French angelica root Spanish liquorice root, Italian orris root, Spanish almonds, Chinese cassia bark, Madagascan cinnamon and Seville oranges.

Dry Line Truro Cape Cod Gin

Named after the juniper producing eastern Red Cedar that is grown here and embodies Yankee ingenuity, from its inventive recipe to the self- taught virtuosity of its distillers. Infused with a selection of Cape Cod Botanicals, including eastern Red Cedar Juniper berries found on the Truro property and angelica root grown by a local farmer, dry line gin is the best of the Cape in a bottle.

Distillery No. 209 Gin, San Francisco

The bouquet is nicely citrus forward with a juniper backstop with a nicely aromatic mix of botanicals. Smooth, citrusy, with the lemon and bergamot providing lighter notes and with the juniper being a bit more restrained. Slightly oily appearance to body (sign of quality) without separating.
