Ska Nefarious

It has been awhile since we have seen this one...

Ska Nefarious Ten Pin Imperial Porter 22oz....$5.69
"Nobody bowls better sober. No on is suggesting you get drunk; merely stating the facts. Our extra strong imperial porter will make you better at bowling. King of the alley-this imperial porter reigns supreme, creamy, chocolaty sweet, with hints of coffee and bing cherry, the Nefarious is wickedly outrageous." -- Ska

Salmon just arrived!

Fresh batch landed today at Forsyth.  

Smoked Salmon from Ann Arbor, Michigan
Usually the best things we find for our store are products that don't come looking for us, they are products that we go looking for them.  Durham's Tracklements Custom Smoked Provisions is one of those products.  In fact, we have been trying for months to sell their salmon in our store.  They kept telling us that they cannot keep up with demand at this point and they are not taking on any more accounts.  Our begging finally paid off and we our on our 3rd shipment,  Supply is limited.

Durham's Tracklements


Inspired by a stay in the Northwest Highlands and Islands of Scotland, a genuine hand-rubbed dry cure of salt with a bit of brown sugar, lightly smoked over our own blend of select hardwoods. Mellow fresh flavor with moist, firm yet buttery texture 

Best of the Best in 20 years of Tasting

" comparison" - Marian Burros, The New York Times

Salmon just doesn’t get any better than this.

--Sylvia Rector, Detroit Free Press

We cure and smoke in small batches with the careful, hands-on attention essential to providing outstanding freshness, flavor and texture. For our Salmon Specialties we use only farmed Atlantic salmon raised in the cold waters of the Bay of Fundy, where strong tides assure excellent growing conditions and make the regular use of antibiotics and algaecides unnecessary. Salmon are selected at the optimal size, and flown fresh direct to us each week!

 No additives of any kind, always dated for superior fresh flavor. The finest genuinely hand-crafted quality available--anywhere.

Odell Deconstruction Ale...$13.99 / 750ml

Rated 98/100 on RateBeer
A method of brewing based on identifying first principals and making pronounced through pilot brewing the desired elements that contribute to the overall flavor.
A Golden Ale created by blending the final recipe with its own barrel aged pilot beers fermented with wild yeasts and lacto. Each individual barrel contributes a unique flavor from the wood chosen and the cultures resident to achieve the subtle complexities that develop(ed) over time.
A beer which starts sweet, filling the mouth with fruit-like esters and mild spiciness, changing to a tart and lingering flavor reminiscent of apples and grapefruit living amidst an earthy, citrusy hop aroma.

Russian River is back...

Russian River Collaboration with Sierra Nevada Brux....$12.99

From Russian River Brewing Blog

"I'm sure many of you have heard about our collaboration with Sierra Nevada Brewing Company! This 2 year, 2 brewery, 2 family project is about to hit the streets and hopefully make it to a bottle shop near you! Set for National Release in July (I bet you thought you would never hear me say something like that!), BRUX was brewed in Chico (at Sierra Nevada) and will go through their distribution channels, which will, of course, greatly increase your chances of getting a couple of bottles. BRUX is a "domesticated wild ale", or an ale fermented with Belgian yeast, finished by a secondary bottle fermentation with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. It's a little more than 8% alcohol, very dry, earthy, spicy, and tasty. But wait, there's more! About 99% of BRUX was bottled in 750 ml bottles, so there will be almost none available on draft. Almost none, meaning that our brewpubs, Russian River and Sierra Nevada, will have it available on draft in July! The Russian River BRUX draft release is set for July 5th at 5pm at our pub in Downtown Santa Rosa. We will have no bottles or growlers available to go at our brewery due to state liquor laws. Then we move to Chico for Sierra Nevada's release on July 9th where they will have plenty of bottles for sale. Not sure about those details other than Vinnie and I are planning to attend! I do hope you get a chance to taste this exceptional collaboration with our friends at Sierra Nevada!
