Evil Twins back in stock....

Evil Twin Monk Suffers Serious Sugar Rush on Barbados....$11.99 / pint
"This is a true story about a dedicated belgian brother who spend all his hard earned money on a all inclusive Barbados vacation to pursue a life long dream – brew an old fashion dark Belgian infused with local muscovado sugar aka Barbados sugar – luckily the outcome is a first class candy coated, full-bodied and escapist beer – the best he ever made. Halleluja." - label

Evil Twin Femme Fatale Brett...$9.49 / pint
"To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett beer can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Ones you get acquainted with Bretts irresistible, seductive, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you to the point of obsession to create the desirable tangy, funky, tart flavor in ya mouth." - label

Evil Twin The Talented Mr. Orangutan Stout...$11.99 / pint
He has proportionally longer arms than others, recognisable by his reddishbrown hair, among the most intelligent primates and uses a variety of really sophisticated tools. But what makes him so gifted and very sought after is his notorious ability to maintain deviously capable, deliver something unpredictable and always perform with a curious mind of a five year old.

Raderberger now in 6 packs

Classic German Pilsner now available in 6 packs

Single Hop Simcoe

A fresh single hop arrives...

In stock at Forsyth and online

Simcoe Single Hop IPA

Hermitage Single Hop Simcoe....$5.99
Simcoe is the latest addition to our single-hop series of india pale ales. The aroma of the hops themselves is a lovely combination of pungent earthiness and sweet fruit. That tropical fruit aroma persists into the glass, while the flavor that carries over to the finished beer has a solid bitterness with a nice piney undertone, dominated by a robust citrus, grapefruit-like quality. The beer finishes dry, leaving a clean, almost minty aftertaste on the palate. Another delicious example of what hops can contribute to the art of beer.

7% ABV / 55 IBU

Collab with Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery

Fresh batch of Schneider and Brooklyn Brewery Collaboration!

New label....

The new batch is here....
Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse...$4.69 / pint
8.2% ABV
"This unique beer is the result of the long friendship of Schneider brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler and Brooklyn brewmaster Garrett Oliver. The two brewmasters feel that Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse represents the quality, tradition and terroir of the Bavarian Hallertauer hop region paired with the innovation and creative energy for which Brooklyn is famous."

New Avery Maharaja!

In stock now at Forsyth and online

Avery Maharaja Imperial IPA...$6.99 (22oz)
Rated 100/100 on RateBeer
Beer Style: Imperial India Pale Ale
Hop Variety: Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial and Chinook
Malt Variety: Two-row barley, caramel 120L, victory
OG: 1.090 ABV: 10.24% IBUs: 102
Color: Dark Amber
Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, - "great" and rajan - "king". Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley - fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence.

Double Cross Vodka!

Now in stock at our Forsyth location and online

Double Cross Vodka...$33.99 / 750ml
7 times distilled
We could have sourced our vodka from anywhere in the world. After extensive research, an inside tip sent us to the mountains of Slovakia. There we met Dr. Jan Krak, a true master of the craft of distillation. We fell in love.

With Slovakia. With the people. The dramatic landscapes. The history and tradition... and the vodka. We knew we had to honor this luxurious liquid with a name and bottle that would bow to its rich heritage while remaining grounded in the 21st century.

Double Cross™ called to us. Inspired by the ancient double cross symbol in the Slovak coat of arms, we knew we were on to something when it brought tears to the eyes of our Slovak friends. From what do we pour this purity?

From an award-winning bottle unlike an thing in the world. Elegant. Powerful. Graceful. Striking. A sacred vessel. This is Double Cross™. It’s time to betray the usual.

Durham's Tracklements Smoked Salmon

Fresh batch landed at Forsyth today!.  

Smoked Salmon from Ann Arbor, Michigan

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

More info on Durham's Tracklements

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!

Pick up a bottle for your collection!

"Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled, aged and bottled at the most award-winning distillery in the world.

The taste is rich and complex, with hints of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit. The smooth finish lingers on the palate. This will never change."

Our own private barrel of Blanton's Barrel

We just received our next barrel of Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon

(in stock at Forsyth and Rock Hill so far)

We have chosen our own special barrel for its superior quality...
The Wine and Cheese Place Single Barrel
Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon...$46.99
"The finest bourbon in the world comes from a single barrel. That’s the way Colonel Albert B. Blanton first bottled his private reserve bourbon nearly a century ago. Blanton believed the “center-cut” or middle sections of Warehouse H were the best for aging his bourbon. Personally tasting and choosing each barrel, these barrels were reserved and bottled for ambassadors, dignitaries, family and friends becoming the world’s first single barrel bourbon. His time honored tradition lives on today as only a handful of barrels from the center of Warehouse H are selected to become Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon."
