BEER

PRYES ROYAL RASPBERRY SOUR ALE

A tart, American-fruited Berliner Weiss that combines raspberry with hints of passion fruit, creating a crisp and approachable Kettle sour. Beautiful on the nose with a flavor profile that won’t disappoint (the color may surprise you though!).

 

STEEL TOE SIZE 7 IPA

While the size of the boot might be a bit small, the intensity of the hop flavor and aroma more than makes up for it. They take prodigious amounts of hops and add them any chance they get to this Pacific Northwest-style IPA. If you ever call Size 7 balanced they’ll kick you where it hurts (in the hop sack). Big aroma and flavor of zesty orange peel, a dry and clean bitterness finishes in the most satisfying way possible.

 

WINE

2015 TESSALLAE OLD VINE GRENACHE SYRAH MOURVEDRE BY DOMAINE LAFAGE

A ripe, expansive, full-bodied and undeniably sexy red that has beautiful notes of kirsch liqueur, blueberries, pepper and violets, it has ripe and present tannin, straight up fabulous purity and a great finish. This is another one of those wines where you just have to tell yourself you spent more than you actually did. The wine really is this good.  Pair with beef, pasta, veal, or cassoulet (famous in the region from which this wine hails).

 

VILLA WOLF PINOT NOIR ROSE

The Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé is made with fruit from vineyards farmed expressly for the purpose of producing a true rosé. Only perfectly ripe, healthy grapes are selected. Upon harvest the fruit is given a brief maceration (four to six hours) to extract a lovely salmon color from the Pinot Noir grapes. The resulting wine is light and refreshing, with deliciously bright fruit flavors and a clean, zippy finish.

 

2016 DOUBLE T CHARDONNAY BY TREFETHEN

Peach, green apple, lemon, and graham cracker crust headline the aromas on this medium-bodied Napa Valley Chardonnay.  A creamy entry extends on the palate with delightful flavors of tropical fruit, melon and hints of baking spice. The grand finale is a long and lavish finish.  The lush side of this wine pairs exceptionally well with seafood and light pasta. To embrace the casual side, take it to a backyard BBQ or pizza night with your friends.

 

JUSTIN SAUVIGNON BLANC

Very bright, pale straw with silver/green highlights. Lemon, ripe pink grapefruit and ripe pear with subtle white pepper and green herb accents.  Dry, medium bodied, crisp with lemon and subtle mandarin citrus notes over a pleasant herbal background on entry with savory and mineral textural notes on the mid-palate and into the refreshing finish.

FOOD PAIRINGS

It’s a perfect match to a cool summer soup like Gazpacho, or its Andalusian relative, Salmorejo made with fresh olive oil. It’s also great with grilled oysters with an herb compound butter, or a salad of mixed greens, pears and walnuts with fresh goat cheese. This is Sauvignon Blanc at its best; palate-cleansing and refreshing, textural, with a balance of complex fruit, herbal highlights and savory flavors.

 

SPIRITS

SALIGNAC COGNAC

A surprisingly smooth cognac for its age. On the nose, loads of caramel and vanilla lead into soft notes of oak bright fruit on the palate. The finish is clean and pleasing with a lingering fruitiness. Sip neat or mix with ginger ale.

 

PROPER NO. TWELVE WHISKEY

Founded by legendary fighter and sh!t-talker, Connor McGregor, this whiskey is triple distilled in copper pot stills, which create and fine-tune the proper character.  After the first distillation, the strength of the spirit is increased through a second distillation with a low wine still. A third distillation in the spirit still creates a cut above 80% alcohol.  This captures the heart of the spirit. Aged in bourbon barrels, the spirit slowly develops though the years flavors of vanilla, honey and toasted wood.  

 

THE BOTANIST GIN

Made by the Bruichladdich Distillery, famously known for scotch whiskey, The Botanist Gin is like no gin you have ever tried before.  The aromas explode from the glass. Sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers, honey, coconut, wild mint, and summer meadows.  The taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry, then, as it reaches the back palate, you can feel the warmth and purity of unhurried distillation. The citrus freshness of this luxurious gin excites the taste buds, allowing you to experience a star-burst of flavors as they explode across the palate.

 

BUFFALO TRACE BOURBON

This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak,  toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
