Southern Tier Sonnet with Lemongrass

Southern Tier Sonnet with Lemongrass...$7.99 / 750ml
With the addition of lemongrass, one expects a spicy, peppery and lemon aroma, with citrus and subtle hop character. Looking at the beer through a stemmed glass, you’ll notice pale straw-gold color and a thick and rocky white head with persistent lacing. Of course, because the 750ml bottle is conditioned, some haziness is to be expected. When pouring the bottle, be aware that some sediment may be present. Pour carefully to avoid this, or don’t. The choice is yours.

As we did throughout this series, our in-house art director teamed up with Nate Duval for this label. They were aiming high for a majestic, ‘steampunk Cloud City,’ hidden from view and reachable only by the most intrepid travelers. We think they nailed it.

Southern Tier Compass is back!

Southern Tier Compass Imperial Sparkling Ale...$6.49 / 22oz
We rely on age-old tools in the brewery despite being surrounded by high technology. As a sort of compass, we use the six pointed brewer’s star to help navigate uncharted brews. The cardinal points of water, malt, grain, yeast, hops and a brewer make the baseline. From there anything goes. Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

You’ll notice a slight bitterness in Compass derived from our use of rose hips accentuated by high effervescence. Drink it cold from a fluted or tulip glass. And by all means, avoid sea serpents.

Tangier - Session IPA with Tangerine Peels

Southern Tier Tangier - Session IPA with Tangerine Peels...$8.99 / 6pk
Where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean is the ancient city of Tangier. This confluence has made Tangier a cultural waypoint for millenia. From Greek heroes to Cold War spies and uprisings, Tangier has inspired thousands of legendary stories. It is written that before his battle with the giant Antaeus, Hercules rested in a nearby cave. But where myths end, our tale begins. Tangier is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with spicy citrus aromas and stone fruit flavors. These flavors, with the addition of lightly roasted malts and brilliant hop bitterness, make Tangier a beverage as refreshing as it is exotic. The approachable 5.1% abv yields more time to enjoy the synergy between the tangerine peel and spicy, citrusy, Azacca hops. Enjoy Tangier in celebration of your epic adventure.

Forsyth Location cheese feature: Alsatian - Munster cheese

Haxaire Petit Munster
Made on both sides of the Vosges mountains, and formerly named "Munster" on the Alsace side and "Gerome" on the Lorraine side, they were united in 1978 under AOC denomination (protected name status). The origin of this cheese can be traced back to the Middle Ages.
The milk for production of Munster Gerome comes from the Vosgiennes cows, a breed that was imported from Scandanavia in the 18th century and is known for the high protein content of their milk. Cheeses come in both pasteurized or raw versions and production can be fermier, cooperative, or industriel.
AOC regulations dictate that all cheeses must be matured within a designated area and that the minimum time for aging is three weeks before release, although ten weeks is more normal. (In the case of Petit Munster, the minimum time is two weeks.)

Rind and aroma are the keys to Munster's maturity. Young cheeses have a pale rind that is pinkish-white in color, soft, but relatively dry and not overly pungent. As the cheeses age and receive their regular brine washes, the rind is transformed to a rich, red-orange color with a distinctly sticky (but not slimy) surface and an assertive, pungent smell that (love it or loathe it) cannot be ignored.

When young, the texture of a ripe Munster Gerome is pale cream in color, firm (yet smooth) and slightly brittle. With age, the bacterial activity of the rind transforms the texture into a luscious, soft, meltingly unctuous paste and the color darkens slightly.

Flavors of Munster Gerome are very rich, smooth and slightly tangy on the finish. Cheeses pair very well with crisp white Alsacian whites or dessert wines. - Culture Magazine

Forsyth location Cheese Feature: Tomme Crayeuse

Each of our stores carries a different selection
Come in for a taste as all of our cheese is fresh cut

Schmidhauser Cheeses from the Rhône-Alpes
Schmidhauser Tomme Crayeuse
In 1996, Max stumbled upon what is now the company’s trademark cheese – Tomme Crayeuse. Its creation was purely accidental – they were looking to improve on a Tomme de Savoie recipe – a cheese they found to be a bit dull. During one of the first iterations of the experiment, the wheel was cut open to reveal a chalky interior with a more supple paste near the rind. The cheese was a resounding success; everyone who tasted it praised the cheese for its dual textures. Max chose the the word “crayeuse” as it literally translates to “chalky.”

Our Tomme Crayeuse is made from raw milk. The first thing you’ll notice about the cheese is how striking the rind is, it might look intimidating to the untrained eye, but to a cheese-hound, this rind is a thing of beauty. Natural rinds on cave aged cheeses take to whatever is in the air, so on any one wheel of cheese you might have twenty different strains of molds present. The result is a velvety soft rind, with a patchwork exterior of yellow, gray, brown and white molds.

Cutting the wheel open reveals the dual nature of the cheese. The rind surrounds a half to full inch of soft pliable cheese – more akin to a brie or camembert than a tomme, while the center of the cheese remains dense, fresh, and “chalky.”

Tasting Notes: The aroma is heady with barnyardy notes of hay, fresh grass and terragon. The smooth paste next to the rind is mushroomy, and rich, with the “chalky” interior being fresh, milky and pleasantly tart. The finish is long and clean with a buttery aftertaste.

Maytag Blue Cheese - Iowa
On October 11, 1941, the first wheels of Maytag Blue Cheese were formed and put to age in our caves. Not much has changed since then, although our truck is newer and our cheesemakers are older! Today, we still make each wheel by hand, aging it in our caves twice as long as most other blue cheeses. After all, why change a good thing?
Acclaimed by cheese experts and food editors as America's finest blue cheese, Maytag Blue Cheese ranks among the world's great cheeses. Fred Maytag II, who succeeded his father in 1940, heard about a new process for making blue cheese that was developed by Iowa State University. We still use this process today. It is a time-consuming method of hand making cheese in small batches, using fresh sweet milk from Iowa dairy farms. Each batch of cheese is carefully monitored during the long months of aging, until the peak of flavor is reached and it is finally ready for market.

Ballwin Location Cheese Feature: Heartland Goat Cheese

Our Ballwin location is featuring Heartland Creamery from Missouri

Each store selections vary.  Check each store for details.

Heartland Fresh Goat Cheese Log - Plain
Heartland Fresh Goat Cheese Log - Herb
Hand made, fresh goat cheese logs using milk from our own herd of mostly Saanen goats in northeast Missouri. Nutritious and more digestible than cow’s milk cheese, goat cheese may be a good alternative for those who are lactose intolerant or allergic to milk. High in calcium and medium chain fatty acids—the fat that gives you energy, not inches. A variety of flavors to tempt your palate, chevre can be spread on a cracker or bagel, sprinkled in salads or on baked potatoes, used in sauces, dressings, and stuffings.

More info:
Located in rural northeast Missouri, amid corn and soy beans, our 17,000 acre farm land is home to over 8,500 cows and 2,100 goats. They produce naturally fresh, creamy milk which is made into cheese just down the road in our Creamery.

Heartland Creamery was envisioned by businessman and farmer, Charles Sharpe, who is determined to bring economic growth to the region. A local farm boy, Charlie is joined in his endeavor by a crew of diverse people making up not just a company, but a community. “Our nation faces a crisis in our greatest resource—people,” says Sharpe. “Through our affiliation with a faith-based rehab facility at Heartland, we have the opportunity to help people who are struggling to rebuild their lives. So, every day we promise to do our best for you, our customers, producing the freshest dairy products from our very own herds. In turn, that enables us to provide jobs and life skills to people who need a second chance. That makes what we do very satisfying.”

As a community, we are committed to long term social and environmental stewardship while continuing to preserve family values and traditions. The Dairy and Creamery facilities are located in a rural farming community. The herd is not treated with artificial growth hormones* to increase milk production, and because the Dairy is just minutes down the road from the Creamery, it’s not far to truck the milk.

Since 2005, the Creamery has grown to a current daily production capability of 3,000 pounds of hand crafted fresh and aged cheese. Our goal is to bring old fashioned goodness back to the community…and we would like to share that with you!

The best butter in the world?

In stock now at Forsyth!
Beurre de Baratte Doux "Sweet" Unsalted..$12.99 / 9oz
Beurre de Baratte Fleur de Sel "Salted"...$12.99 / 9oz

From the LA Times
"....But it was no mystery to anyone who has sampled the unbelievably tasty Beurre de Baratte — the French butter that is a featured ingredient on high-end menus at restaurants including Providence, Petit Trois and Republique.  The guy in the white jacket at the center of the throng of chefs and food writers was Rodolphe Le Meunier, whose name is on every gold-foiled package. And in cheese circles, he’s a rock star.  In a way, it’s funny that the thing he’s best known for in Southern California is his butter. At least until you taste it.   Beurre de Baratte, which usually sells for around $12 for a little more than a half-pound, makes every other butter you taste seem insipid.  It’s expensive, certainly (most restaurants serve it only with a surcharge). But as indulgences go, it's so good that it seems a relative bargain.

Le Meunier says the butter is made to his specifications in small lots by a producer in Normandy. The cream is inoculated with bacteria and fermented for a couple of hours — like yogurt. Then it's churned in an old-fashioned beater, orbaratte.   Beurre de Baratte comes salted (aggressively, with fleur de sel) and sweet (unsalted). Both are a deep golden color and incredibly richly flavored, almost more like cheese than regular butter.  The unsalted is best for cooking, but it needs to be used carefully because of its high moisture content (open a package and you'll probably see a little water weeping from the pat). Le Meunier says it’s great for baking cakes, not so much for crisp crusts.  One of his favorite treats is to spread it on hot toast and sprinkle it with chocolate powder. If the thought of that doesn't get you salivating, you haven't tasted great butter. “And if you ever make beurre blanc with it and serve that on a nice piece of fish, oooooh,” he says, shaking his hand in the universal gesture for sublimity.

... the market, is well-stocked with the Beurre de Baratte ($12 for 250 grams) for from the young cheese master Rodolphe Le Meunier, who is kind of the Jimmy Page of affineurs, a genuine Meilleur Ouvrier de France. (Beurre de Baratte is butter made the old-fashioned way; churned rather than extracted with a centrifuge.)

More to the point, perhaps, the pungent, deep-yellow Normandy butter has become a cult item in some of Los Angeles’ best restaurants. Early reviews of Walter Manzke’s restaurant République dwelled as much on the magnificence of the butter, for which he charged extra, as they did on his roast chicken or pork terrine. On recent visits to Petit Trois, it was unnecessary for the waiter to identify the soft butter that came with the baguette – the nutty, salty, umami-rich taste, like popcorn butter times 10, was unmistakable.

Dizzy Three Roasted Espresso Vodka...$18.99

The Adventurous Spirit
The new award-winning vodka with a bold, coffee-forward flavor unlike anything you’ve tried. The specialty coffee connoisseurs at The Roasterie of Kansas City and premium distillers at CLEAR10 vodka of Olathe have combined their expertise of artisan craftsmanship to create this unique and delicious espresso-flavored vodka. The idea was born from the trending hand-crafted cocktail movement with upscale bars house-infusing spirits with the flavor of coffee. Once you have teased your palate with this naturally infused espresso vodka, you will clearly understand why it is the Adventurous Spirit. As always, we truly hope you enjoy drinking Dizzy Three as much as we enjoy crafting it.

Clear 10 Vodka...$23.99 / 750ml
From Kansas
CLEAR10 Vodka is the vision of three Midwest friends who decided local grains and naturally-filtered water were the perfect recipe for nature's clear libation. Our background in farming, mixology, chemistry and 50 combined years consuming quality (and not so quality) vodka has provided us with an extremely fastidious palate and a knack for crafting amazing vodka.   As the makers of CLEAR10, we set out on a mission to show the world what the Midwest is all about. We wanted to utilize the fresh, quality ingredients that this region has to offer. CLEAR10 is crafted in Olathe, Kansas and currently sold in a 4 state region consisting of Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas.

The difference between our vodka and the mass producers is CLEAR. CLEAR10 vodka follows a meticulous process to create a product free of additives. CLEAR10 Vodka has no preservatives, no added sugar, no citric acid and it is gluten free. It is distilled using a 5-column distillation process, then crafted in small batches and filtered ten times that has resulted in one of the most decorated vodkas in the world. The description of the process sounds appealing, but tasting the crisp, refreshing flavor is the only thing that does it justice. This process takes CLEAR10 to another level unlike any other vodka around, delivering vodka with an exceptionally fresh, clean taste; one that you won’t want to miss.

CLEAR10 was conceived in 2008 and launched in 2009. Since the launch, CLEAR10 has since expanded and been awarded many highly prestigious awards for its additive-free, uncommonly clean vodka. Over the last several years, CLEAR10 has been awarded a Gold Medal for taste at the MicroLiquor Spirit Awards, The Fifty Best, the Beverage Tasting Institute, a rating which was categorized as exceptional, and possibly the most impressive, a Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. CLEAR10 may be crafted locally, but it’s awarded globally.

96 point 2012 Bordeaux - Chateau Haut Bailly

2012 Chateau Haut Bailly Pessac-Leognan...$77.99
The classic 2012 Haut-Bailly is staggeringly great wine, with a stunning bouquet of lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black raspberries and blackcurrants and perhaps a touch of spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with an almost seamless integration of wood, alcohol and tannin. It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortlessly for 25-30 years.

One of the great shining superstars of Pessac-Léognan has been the ascent of Haut-Bailly under the ownership of Robert Wilmers, an American, and his winemaking team lead by Véronique Sanders. Readers checking the database of the Wine Advocate will note that the 2009 has been elevated to a perfect score, which is of course not surprising, since it started off with a 98-point rating.

2012 Chateau D'Armailhac

2012 Chateau D'Armailhac Pauillac...$43.99
Part of the empire of the Chateau Mouton Rothschild, this estate was once known as Mouton Baronne Philippe. This impressive, deep, opaque ruby/purple wine, with loads of charcoal, crème de cassis and a flowery-ness, this is rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, quite pure, and avoids any of the astringency or hollowness that some Médocs possess in this vintage. The wine is complete and finishes authoritatively. The tannins are there, but ripe, integrated and velvety. This is a very impressive d’Armailhac to drink over the next 20-25 years.

Rated 91/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2012 Chateau Branaire Ducru

2012 Chateau Branaire Ducru St. Julien...$58.99
Deep ruby/purple, with sweet cranberry, mulberry and raspberry/blueberry fruit, this is always a distinctive St.-Julien and the 2012 has managed to avoid any of the hollowness or harsh tannins that can afflict some of the Médocs. It is elegant, well-made and an outstanding effort in this vintage. Drink it over the next 15 or more years.

This is another bottled wine that dramatically out-performed its barrel sample.
