Crabtree Dearfield Strawberry Blonde Ale...12oz bottle
Dr. George Junne, Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Northern Colorado, approached Jeff Crabtree mid summer of 2009 with a unique idea. He proposed if Jeff was interested in the idea to develop a beer that would give fair representation of Dearfield Colorado. The design of the beer was inspired by the style of crops that were produced for the community. After several revisions, the Dearfield Ale was born. A blonde ale brewed with strawberries available shortly. A majority of the profitable proceeds will be donated to the Dearfield preservation fund to assist the Black American West Museum in stabilizing this great piece of history.


Charelville Strawberry Blonde...12oz bottle

O'Fallon Strawberry Best....12oz bottle


Wheat with Strawberry
Try our new refreshingly light and crisp Strawberry Best! We start with an American Wheat style recipe that’s a perfect compliment for fruit. We add real strawberry puree to the secondary fermentation, which gives the beer a naturally subtle strawberry flavor and aroma with a slight tartness. Light in color and soft in bitterness this beer is designed specifically to be enjoyed during the hot summer months.


Crown Valley Strawberry Cider...12oz bottle
This cider has a slight golden pink color. This strawberry infused cider is a semi-sweet cider with a wonderful balance of sweetness and acidity.

Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager...12oz bottle
Abita Strawberry Harvest is a lager brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and Vanguard hops. Real Louisiana strawberry juice is added after filtration resulting in a crisp lager with a sweet strawberry flavor, aroma and haze. It is wonderful with desserts or lighter fare such as salads and pastas. Fresh cheeses such as Burrata, chèvre, Crescenza, mozzarella or Teleme pair well with Strawberry Harvest.

Kolsch - 6 pack!

Kolsch:
Golden, top-fermented style native to Köln, Germany. The style has a very narrow profile and many beers that consider themselves to be kölschbiers are not. Generally they have a moderate bitterness, but fairly prominent hop flavour (typically Spalt, Tettnang or Hallertau). They have high effervescence, medium esters, but a rounded, stylish character derived from lagering - from RateBeer

Kolsch 6 pack....$17.99 
  • 1 bottle of each of these Kolsch.  The 6 pack price is better than buying them individually.
  • So that we can make sure it is ready.  Please order online or call 314.727.8788.  You do not have to enter credit card info if you are picking up in the store.

Urban Chestnut Bap Kolsch Ale...Pint
The classic style from Cologne, named after the most famous rock band to write their lyrics in Kölsch. This warm filtered ale is cold conditioned so it takes on the characteristics of a lager.

Sunner Kölsch...Pint
It was Sünner that brewed the first beer in the modern Kölsch style (though it wasn't called that then) around 1900. Sünner is a 'Kölsch' beer, unique to Köln (Cologne) Germany.
Like Champagne (Appellation Controlee) it is protected by laws, so that only beers brewed in that region can bear the name. It is an Ale with a stylish character derived from lagering. It is clear and pale straw in appearance. The taste is refreshing, gently fruity, slightly sweet with a crisp, dry finish.
5.3% ABV

French Broad Gateway Kolsch....22oz
While known for their lagers, German brewers also produce terrific ales. French Broad’s Kölsch is faithful to the great German ales found in Köln. Golden in color, with a refreshing crispness, pleasantly sweet malt finish, and distinctive German hopping.

Freigeist Ottekolong Kolsch...pint
Rich, hoppy, and complex, Ottekolong (“Eau de Cologne”) Kölsch is a traditional version of the city’s local specialty. Ironically, this peerless quaffing ale, scandalously unfiltered and extra-hopped, is too traditional to be accepted as a “legal” Kölsch. We think it’s the best beer in town, frankly.
Style: Kölsch
ABV: 4.80%

Reissdorf Koslch...12oz
Reissdorf Kölsch is the beer speciality from Cologne with a tradition starting 1894. A Kölsch with a pleasant, full-bodied, and uniquely light and sweet taste in premium quality, that is brewed for the adepts who prefer something special

Schlafly Koslch....12oz
This light-colored, refreshing ale is THE beer of Cologne. Well balanced and mild mannered, this beer is great for summer.



Elmer T. Lee Bourbon back in stock.

call 314.727.8788




Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon...$33.99

Info from Spirits Review

Appearance: Deep red / gold in the bottle, shows its age, as well as its namesake, Mr Lee. You rarely see this color in a whiskey, as it denotes a great deal of maturity and aging. To see this color in a single malt scotch, it would have to be a to older and about four to ten times more expensive. It is a beautiful thing. On swirling, it leaves a thicker coating on the glass and has more legs and heavier body than George T. Stagg or Buffalo Trace Bourbon.

First Impression: Toffee, apricots, some spiciness, and a faint trace of marzipan, leather, and on more warming: char.This is a great, full-bodied, but somehow delicate whiskey. Damn smooth stuff.

Taste: Toffee, (not caramel), corn, apricot again, much like the bouquet. A medium mouth feel, more like a good armagnac than like a cognac (as I have described some other whiskies from there). Nice warming going down, without the burn you would expect for the price. Most bourbons don't stand up to age well, they have a very turbulent ride to adolescence in new fresh charred barrels, and dramatic temperature swings (hence intense respiration in the barrel which leads to a very rapid aging compared to the sedate pace of other spirits many of which use recycled barrels).
Drinks: Great in almost any drink calling for bourbon. Has the taste and body to stand up to anything you mix it with, but on the other hand it does mix well and does not overwhelm a drink. A true gentleman who knows how to get along well with others.
Final Thoughts: This is where all my troubles began... This was my first single barrel bourbon after years of drinking mass produced bourbons. There is a term "Gateway Drug" meaning the one you get started on, innocently enough before. . . In a entirely different POSITIVE way this is a Gateway Bourbon. . .The difference betwwen this and the mass produced bourbons is immense. For just a few dollars more, it introduces you to the true possibilities of what bourbon can be and leaves you hungering for all the other ones out there. Beware! It is an outstanding value, and I give a personal recommendation to try. Bottle: Gold Sealing Wax and a square bottle with rounded edges give it a nice effect. The concave medallion type impressions on the side make the bottle easy to grip when pouring - unlike a lot of square bottles. It also makes it easy to find in your bar. It looks they are trying for a slightly antique look with Mr Lee's portrait on the back label looking through the whiskey. The clear glass and label on the front show off the color of the whiskey to good effect. The weight and heft of the bottle conveys a solid feel. A printed oval label has the legally required labeling and little more.

2010 Chantegrive - best buy in Bordeaux




2010 Chateau de Chantegrive Graves...$24.99 
A fabulous sleeper of the vintage, Chantegrive’s 2010 is the best wine I have ever tasted from this estate, which has long made very good wines that represent terrific values. An equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 exceeds all expectations. Notes of tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, barbecue smoke and loads of flesh, opulence and richness characterize this dense purple-colored wine, which is full-bodied and over-achieving. Drink it over the next decade. A major sleeper of the vintage.
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Schlafly Oktoberfest




Schlafly Oktoberfest....$7.99

Our Oktoberfest is a traditional Bavarian Märzen with a toasty malt aroma and slight caramel taste. This rich, amber lager is balanced by the use of German noble hops, while the lager yeast ferments cold and slow, creating a smooth, crisp beer.

Märzen, or Oktoberfest, has its origins in Bavaria, most likely before the 16th century. For public safety and brewing quality concerns, the Bavarian Brauordnung was decreed in 1539, stating that beer could only be brewed from September 29th (Saint Michael) to April 23rd (Saint George). Over the summer months, beers were stored, or lagered, in caves and stone cellars. The evolution of Oktoberfest came from the last brews of the year, in March (or Märzen), as these beers would be ready to drink for the Bavarian celebration, “Oktoberfest”.

Brauhaus Riegele collab Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest



This is a "one off"

Each year they will collaborate with a different German Brewery.  

2015 Collaboration is with Brauhaus Riegele

Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest....$7.99 / 6pk
A German-American collaboration on the classic festival beer.
We’re on a mission to explore the roots of Germany’s festival beers. Each year, we’ll partner with one of a handful of incredible German brewers to create a traditional take on the most famous beer style in history. This year we’re working hand in hand with Brauhaus Riegele of Augsburg. Together we created an authentic Oktoberfest beer, true to the roots of the festival, that’s deep golden in color and rich with complex malt flavor from the use of traditional German Steffi barley.


How Sierra Nevada Made
the World's Best Oktoberfest -- Men's Journal
German brewers have been making Oktoberfest beer, the easy-drinking amber lagers, for over 200 years. But a U.S. craft brewery that previously only dabbled in the style has surpassed them all with the best Oktoberfest we've ever tasted, from Europe or anywhere else. So how did they do it? It all started, unsurprisingly, from a partnership with one of Germany's oldest independent, family-owned breweries, Brauhaus Riegele.

Riegele isn't a big name in the U.S., but among its laurels is Germany's Beer of the Decade for the crowd-pleasing Commerzienrat Riegele Privat. Though Privat is a masterful take on German lagers, Riegele has built a reputation for breaking out in Germany's rigid, staid beer culture. Instead of resting on its centuries-old standards, the Bavarian brewery has spent generations refining its beers and experimenting with new styles (they make some of Bavaria's only IPAs). It was that constant drive for better beer, says Sierra Nevada founder Ken Grossman, that led him to reach out to collaborate with the brewery.

Grossman's Chico, California-based operation previously produced a limited run of an Oktoberfest lager that was consumed at the brewery's annual Oktoberfest celebration. After last season, Grossman thought the quaffable, yet potentially complex style was primed to go coast-to-coast. And following the success of his Beer Camp Across America tour, where the Chico crew brewed with renowned colleagues like Oskar Blues, Victory, and Firestone Walker, Grossman knew he wanted to team up with a like-minded brewer. His list of friends in Germany is long, but he'd recently begun helping Riegele on a barrel-aging project (rarely found across the Atlantic) and knew their attention to detail and creative spirit matched his own brewing philosophy.

When Grossman's team and Riegele came together, they pinpointed an heirloom barley called Steffi to help set their Oktoberfest apart. Though it's a favorite grain for the German outfit, Steffi is rarely used elsewhere due to its cost — it takes more grain to produce a batch than modern strains. "It's an old variety, but it has quite a bit more character," says Grossman.

The Bavarian brewery also maintains one of the largest libraries of brewers yeast in the world, each of which imparts a unique character on barley, hops, and water. "A beer is a puzzle of 1,000 parts," says Riegele manager Sebastian Priller-Riegele. "Each piece and ingredient has to fit into each other." The Riegele team combed through its extensive collection and picked the ideal yeast that would bring the desired flavors together.

The team finished the beer with a mix of spicy German hops. "We spent a lot of time getting a balance of roasted malts and bitterness that was traditional," Grossman says. "But in a Sierra Nevada twist, we boosted the aroma hops."

The resulting beer sets the new standard for the style, with a rich, wide range of flavors you'd find in a much stronger brew, while maintaining the trademark drinkability of a fest beer (at 6 percent ABV). You'll taste the Steffi and complementing barleys upfront with spicy hops following. The lager finishes dry and crisp with a balance of hop bitterness and malt sweetness. It's the ideal beer for any fall day — one you can sip and geek out on, and one you can hoist in a stein and enjoy without thinking. Our only complaint: Sierra Nevada says they plan to reformulate and collaborate with a different brewery next Oktoberfest season.

95 Point Crognolo








95 Point Tuscan Gem
2013 Sette Ponti Crognolo Toscana...$24.99
For the third year in a row this wine has scored 95/100 from James Suckling, if there is a better value from Tuscany we haven't found it.
Lots currants, blueberries, vanilla and floral character on the nose and palate. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Edgy contrast of acidity, ripe fruit and wood. Stylish, savory and delicious. A blend of sangiovese and merlot. One of the best values amongst Super Tuscan reds. Drink in 2016.

Tamdhu Batch Strength - Batch #1






Tamdhu Batch Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky...$81.99
Batch #1
58.8% ABV
A Tamdhu for the devoted malt fan, this magnificent edition is bottled un-chillfiltered at natural colour and high strength. Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and intensity.

As with every bottle of Tamdhu, once distilled it is matured exclusively in hand-selected sherry oak casks. Our oak is amongst the finest in the industry, with a high proportion being first-fill and teeming with flavour.

Finally, patience is required to allow these fine casks to do their work, giving Tamdhu its deep colour and exquisite quality.

Old Forester 1870 Original Batch




Old Forester 1870 Original Batch...$42.99
BOURBON JUST DOESN’T GET MORE ORIGINAL
Old Forester 1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Brown’s original 1870 batching process. Back then, Brown batched barrels obtained from three distilleries to create a consistent flavor profile. To emulate that process today, we also select barrels from three warehouses, each barrel originating from a different day of production, with a different entry proof and a different age profile.
The three expressions of Old Forester are then batched together to craft Old Forester 1870 Original Batch. This 90-proof bourbon will be minimally filtered, to honor the processes available to George Garvin Brown at that time.

TASTING NOTES
NOSE:  Clove notes spice up a medley of citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, blood orange), all softened with a delicate, sweet honeysuckle character.
TASTE:  
Baking spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) flow into a citrus-fruit mix and shortbread sweetness.
FINISH:  Soft, with lingering fruit and spice character.

Classic Beer of the Week! Kwak



Taste it tonight from 4-6pm at Forsyth!  (8/7/15)
Classic Beer of the Week!
We are featuring a "Classic" beer in our Friday night tasting when we can. So many people may have never had these beers because they are not the "new" or "hot" craft beer anymore.   I was going to feature Karmeliet Tripel this week but researching it, it was first produced in 1996.   My sell imposed guideline is that a beer must be produced for at least 20 years to qualify as a classic.  So Karmeliet will have to wait until next year.


Kwak Belgian Strong Ale
Rated 94/100 RateBeerAlso available with 4 bottles of Kwak plus the special Kwak glass and wood stand.
"According to tourist guides, there are over 1000 types of Belgian beer. Quite a few of these Belgian beers have their own unique glass. The most distinctive of glasses is the Kwak vessel. This 25 centimetre glass tube with a flared top and a round, bulbous bottom is held by a wooden clamp. In fact, this glass would tip over if you tried to set it down on a table!
According to the Kwak website: “In Napoleon’s time, Pauwel Kwak was a brewer and the owner of the De Hoorn inn (near Brussels). Mail coaches stopped there every day, but at that time coachmen were not allowed to leave their coach and horses,” “As a result, the inventive innkeeper had a special Kwak glass blown that could be hung on the coach. In this way, the coachman had his Kwak beer safely at hand.”
Ordering Kwak for the first time is a great experience. It comes to your table complete with a monogrammed wooden stand. The long neck and round base makes a nice rich, frothy head. You can recognize a Kwak glass from across a crowded bar.
Once you get over the novelty of the glass, Kwak is a very fine Belgian beer. The color is a deep amber, with a creamy colored head. Kwak has a mellow, fruity and malty aroma with very little hops smell. There are some hints of fruit in the taste and aroma such as creamy bannana and liquorice." --www.bestbelgianbeers.com

Schafer Frohlich - great value!




2010 Schafer Frohlich Nahe Riesling Kabinett...$15.99
Cheapest price online is $21.76
Delicate (at 7.5% alcohol) and refreshing, its green apple and honeydew melon are delightfully accompanied by green tea and lemon grass, although their scents are somewhat obscured (albeit, I’m sure, not permanently) by stubbornly yeasty, slightly cheesy notes from spontaneous fermentation. Salt and stone add interest to an exhilarating finish. This should be worth following for the better part of a decade, and perhaps beyond.

St. Cosme Cote Rotie at a great price!



2011 St. Cosme Cote Rotie...$39.99
Lowest price online is $55.98
Release price $75
The 2011 Cote Rotie offers the classic perfume of the appellation, with savory meatiness, cracked pepper, rendered bacon fat, currant bud and lavender-like qualities all soaring from the glass. Coming mostly from schist soils (think Cote Brune-esque), it shows thrilling minerality on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness, polished tannin and serious length. Count me a fan and this top-notch effort will evolve gracefully for 10-12+ years.

1er Cru Chablis for only $19.99






Yes, 1er Cru for $19.99
2012 J.P. Droin Chabils Vaillons 1er Cru....$19.99
The 2012 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons has a reticent nose, tightly wound and lacking the fruit intensity that I was expecting. The palate is much better with saline notes threaded from start to finish. This is lively and tense, but it needs the aromatics to wake up! Drink 2015-2020.
