Old Mephisto

Djævlebryg Old Mephisto

"Old Mephisto is a big beer: Full, warming and intense. Old Mephisto offers balanced sweetness, roasted caramel and a rounded bitterness - all held together by the vinous character. The inviting brandy coloured Old Mephisto can be enjoyed with strong cheeses, full game dishes or on its own."

Great Divide 17th Anniversary

Just arrived --


Great Divide 17th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA



"Based on our award-winning beer, Denver Pale Ale, this copper-hued treat is a celebration of everything Great Divide does best. Plenty of malty sweetness provides a backdrop of earthy, floral English and American hops, while French and American oak round off the edges and provide a touch of vanilla. Thanks to everyone who's supported us for the last 17 years--here's to 17 more! 10.0% ABV." -- Great Divide

Marcoot Jersey Creamery

In stock at Forsyth, Rock Hill and Ballwin



"Our story begins in 1840 when the "Markut" family sailed from Switzerland to New Orleans taking the steam ship up the Mississippi River to the sparsely inhabited Bond- Madison County area of southern Illinois. The Markut name was changed back to a previous old World spelling "Marcoot". We know for certain by the mid-1800's our ancestors had Jersey cattle because we have dated "Marcoot Jersey Farm" letterhead. Seven generations of the family have raised Jersey cattle.....The cheese is made solely from the milk of our own Registered Jersey, grassfed cattle.  The 60 milking Jersey cows enjoy pasturing on the paddocks of a variety of grasses to provide abundant natural nutrition.  No hormones are given to the cattle.  Homeopathic remedies are the first line of defense when necessary

New Dragon's Milk


Available online


New Holland Dragon's Milk...$13.99 / 4pk
- Ale Aged in Oak Barrels
"Dragon's Milk is a 17th century term used to describe the strong beer usually reserved for royalty. This strong ale was aged in oak for over 120 days. The aging process extracts flavors from the wood, which contribute to its complex character. Hints of bourbon flavor perfectly compliment its roasted malts to produce a beer fit for a King." -- brewery
"The beer you hold in your hand, Dragon’s Milk Ale, is a crown jewel of New Holland Brewing Company. It is the unrivaled result of painstaking processes - both creative and scientific.We could tell you about the centuries-old tradition of the term, Dragon's Milk, or we could tell you about the history, craftsmanship and challenges of important, the beer inside this bottle.Expect a complex ale with a soft, rich caramel-malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones; all dancing in an oak bath. Unmistakably distinctive example of New Holland’s Art in Fermented Form." --brewery

Cheese from Caseificio dell'Alta Langa

Super young and fresh Italian cheeses now in stock at Forsyth --


La Tur is a delicious belnd of cow milk, sheep milk, and goat milk.   It is a triple cream cheese from the Piedmont region of Italy -- more specifically Langhe.   It has a very creamy paste inside the rind and the flavor is delicate but tangy.  Very luscious cheese.





 Brunet is a fresh goat's milk cheese from Northern Italy.   Also made by Caseificio dell'Alta Langa, it is an amazing cheese that must be tasted to be believed.   Rich and creamy with that wonder goat's milk flavor.   It is amazing how fresh they taste.    The cheesemaker is a relatively new producer (about 15-16 years) and super high-tech.  Science meets the farm.

Rachel Barrie - Mini Bio
Whiskey Creator & Master Blender As Glenmorangie Whisky Creator and Master Blender, Rachel Barrie is one of a small number of female Scotch whisky experts and master blenders, and as such she is often regarded as an inspiration to women in traditionally male-dominated industries. Rachel started her career in 1991 at the Scotch Whisky Research Institute, where she was the only female scientist in the maturation and blending department. She was part of a team who carried out extensive work on developing the ideal ex-bourbon cask for whisky maturation, and also researched air-seasoned versus kiln-dried wood. Some of these findings were adopted by Glenmorangie, which further developed this area leading to the development of the company’s famous wood management policy, which uses slow growth, air-seasoned oak from the Ozark Mountains. In 1995 Rachel joined The Glenmorangie Company as Lab Manager, and over the past 12 years, has established the on-site sensory laboratory, created the sensory panel (composed of 50 employees, identified and trained by Rachel, who are vital in conducting taste studies on the company’s whiskies), analysed the Ardbeg whisky and stock profile, and has been at the forefront of the development of many of the company’s product innovations.
