Random Store News...

Gonzales and Byass Tio Pepe Sherry --
Back in stock after a 9-10 month hiatus. This has always been our number one selling sherry. It has not been available in the U.S. while they were switching importers. The red tape is finally done and it is back.
Schlafly Irish Extra Stout -- just released.
"This full-bodied and full-flavored rich, dark ale has a malty sweetness balanced with plenty of hops to create the perfect stout." -- Schlafly
Baileys Chocolate stock now at Forsyth!!
Just in time for Valentines. Brand new, brewed by O'Fallon. Light brown color and a great chocolate nose. It has a sort of Milk/Dark chocolate taste and a dry finish. (4.7% alcohol by weight)
April 4th, 2009 -- TWCP Beerfest
Our third annual and a great beer event. I already have some surprises lined up. I will reveal as we get closer.
April 15th, 2009 -- Shelton Brothers Beer Tasting
Tax Day relief!! Matt Dinges of Shelton Beers will be in town to do a Shelton Beer Tasting at the Clayton store. More details as we get closer.

Benton's Smoky Mountain Bacon
We have been trying for six months to get more, they promised us January of 2009, but looks like February is the lucky month. They finally told us they are shipping us 48lbs this week.
This bacon is smoked the old fashioned way for two days. It is in such demand that Alan Benton says he turns down about 5,000 orders a month.
Their bacon has been featured in Gourmet Magazine, Saveur Magazine, and Southern Living Magazine. "This is, hands down, the best bacon I've ever tasted...." -- Southern Living Magazine
I will post tomorrow when it arrives.
