Rye on Rye is here at Forsyth
 The Wine and Cheese Place!!!!


Boulevard Smokestack Rye on Rye...$11.99 / 750ml
Rated 99 on RateBeer  
Why Rye? This assertively flavorful grain is more often associated with whiskey than beer. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of Bourbon and scotch. But when we procured some seasoned barrels from our friends at Templeton rye, we asked ourselves, "Why not? Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warthm of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Two kinds of malted rye provide a spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of caramelized wood and the citrusy tang of Perle, Magnum, and Saphir hops before easing into a dry, lingering finish." -- back label




Boulevard Smokestack Imperial Stout X – Tart Cherry....$11.99 / 750ml 
As a base beer, Imperial Stout serves as a ridiculously sturdy starting point for layering flavors by incorporating new ingredients or barrel aging methods. Imperial Stout has a huge grain bill featuring several types of malted barley, wheat, rye, oats, and spelt. Robust grain and chocolate/coffee flavors are counterbalanced by date and plum notes from Scottish yeast. For Imperial Stout X – Tart Cherry, our brewers blended in over 24,000 pounds of cherry puree and 1,600 gallons of brewhouse soured beer to lend cherry flavor and a tart, refreshing acidity.
