Russian River Collaboration!
Avery Collaboration not Litigation Ale....$1.99 / 22oz
Was $6.99 - we got in 10 cases
Batch #8
Salvation. The name of two intricate Belgian-style ales, created by us, Vinnie Cilurzo of Russian River Brewing and Adam Avery of Avery Brewing. After becoming friends a few years ago, we realized we both had a Salvation in our lineups. Was it going to be a problem? Should one of us relinquish the name rights? “Hell, no!” we said. In fact, it was quickly decided that we should blend the brews to catch the best qualities of each and create an even more complex and rich libation. In April 2004, in a top secret meeting at Russian River Brewing (well, actually it was packed in the pub and many were looking over our shoulders wondering what the hell was going on), we came up with the perfect blend of the two Salvations. Natalie, Vinnie’s much more significant other, exclaimed, “We should call this Collaboration, not Litigation Ale!” “Perfect,” we shouted! We celebrated deep into the night (or is that morning?). Fast forward to November 14, 2006. After talking about it for over two years, we finally decided to pull the trigger and Vinnie made the journey to Avery Brewing to brew his Salvation exactly as he does in his brewery." -- Avery

Buffalo Trace - 3 different White Dogs






Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1....$14.99 / 375ml
"In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway followed by America's first explores. Those brave pioneers distilled whiskey using traditional methods and drank it right off the still. They called it White Dog. This raw distillate was clear, un-aged and had a hint of sweet corn. Later distillers discovered this spirit was perfect for aging--creating what we know today as fine Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. We're still making whiskey on the spot where ancient buffalon once crossed the Kentucky River and following centuries of time-honored distilling tradition. Enjoy this White dog the way Americans did more than 200 years ago." -- Buffalo Trace








Buffalo Trace White Dog Wheated Mash...$14.99 / 375ml
William Larue Weller was a distilling pioneer. He took a traditional bourbon recipe and substituted wheat where rye was normally used. This created a soft mellow spirit perfect for sipping. Before this whiskey ever made its way into the barrel froom for ageing it was drunk straight off the still. It was called White Dog. This raw distillate was clear, un-aged and hinted of wheat and sweet corn. Enjoy this wheat recipe White Dog the way William Larue Weller and early Americans did more than a century ago.





Buffalo Trace White Dog Rye Mash....$14.99 / 375ml
Dating back to George Washington and the birth of a nation is a proud history of crafting whiskey. Some of the first whiskey distilled in American was Straight rye. Keeping with traditions of America's founding fathers, Buffalo Trace Distillery offers this raw, clear, un-aged and high-proof distillate right off the still. The taste has a hint if spicy rye. This whiskey is known as White Dog. It was later discovered this spirit was perfect for ageing and gave way to what we today know as Straight Rye Whiskey.

The grapes are gently pressed and decanted for 24 hours before alcoholic fermentation. The rosé wine then undergoes malolatic fermentation to bring out the earth aromas and develops the roundness and length on the palate. The wine is then kept in vats until bottled. Pairings: Fish & Shellfish, Pasta, Sushi, Asian, Pork, Pizza, Cheese & Crackers, Chicken & Turkey, and Salads. 

TWCP / Buffalo Trace Single Barrel XIV


Our next single barrel that we chose has arrived!
TWCP Single Barrel - Buffalo Trace Bourbon Volume XIV...$22.99
Buffalo Trace has always been one of our favorite Bourbons, that is why we are on our 12th barrel. This particular barrel was a real stand out when we tasted it a few months back. It is always interesting to taste single barrels and the difference between them. We felt this barrel was superior to the others in the batch. It has a lot of vanilla and sweet honey on the nose. The flavor leans towards toffee and caramel. The finish lets you know you are drinking a great bourbon, it is spicy and lingering. What a bargain!

Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate


Nestled in the wilderness of the Camargue national park, Domaine le Pive is comprised of 113+ acres of organically farmed vines, with a modern, state of the art winery and historic Romanesque chapel at its center.  The plentiful sun, marine winds and distinctive sandy soils (“sables sauvages”) result in fresh, aromatic, personality-filled wines.
Tasting Notes:
Pale in color, but offering plenty of aromatic intensity, with loads of strawberry, raspberry fruit, a touch of earth, spice and mineral character, and a hint of banana. Bone dry. Finishes long and clean, with great freshness.  Excellent on its own and with fish/shellfish, this versatile wine has surprising intensity and will also stand up to more substantial meals (BBQ, grilled meats). A great summer picnic wine!

Jean Panis took the reins from his father, Guy, in 1996 and has taken the estate to new heights, with the historic 1998 vintage marking the beginning of a golden era that continues to this day.
Tasting Notes:
Donjon’s classic, bone-dry rosé offers aromas of strawberry, cherry and plum, with a silky texture, and a long, piquant finish.  Excellent on its own, with salads, and with omelettes, it can also to stand up to chicken, sausage or ham.

A big rosé! Raspberry and pear aromas on the nose, with distinctive spicy, minty garrigue notes. Big, bold and firm on the palate, ending with a long, clean finish.  A rosé for year round drinking!

Spanish Inedit - now in 4 packs


Now in 4 packs
Estrella Damm Inedit....$9.49 / 4 pack
"Inedit is a unique coupage of barley malt and wheat, flavored with coriander, orange peel and liquorice. Inedit is the first beer specifically created to accompany food. It is born from the conviction that a beer that could be paired with the utmost respect to the best cuisine was necessary. That is its aim and its virtue, and that is what makes Inedit different, special and unique. Has been created by Damm brewmasters, heirs to a century-old tradition, and developers of highly appreciated beers, and by Ferran Adrià, Juli Soler and El Bulli’s sommeliers’ team.

Tasting notes: High intensity and aromatic complexity. Its appearance is slightly cloudy. Fruity and floral to the nose, with a yeasty sensation and sweet spices reminiscences. Creamy and fresh texture, soft volume and delicate carbonic. Long aftertaste and pleasant memory. Made to accompany the festival of flavours modern cuisine offers us. For Sommeliers trying to accomodate different types of flavours has always been a nightmare... now there is a solution! With its delicate, sophisticated bubbles this beer can take acidic, sweet and sour flavours by the hand. the symphony of flavours in each dish is different, but there can be a common thread capable of unifying them all, for a sense of continuity so there is no need to switch drinks. This beer has a rich and highly adaptable bouquet. In other words a unique personality: smooth yet complex." -- website


It's Not All Foam
Owen Dugan
Issue: October 15, 2009
El Bulli chef Ferran Adrià is making beer, and defying expectations yet again. Adrià and his team, including partner Juli Soler, have joined with Barcelona brewery Estrella Damm to produce what Adrià describes as “the only gastronomic beer.”

Perfecting the beer, which took almost two years, “was very easy, and at the same time very difficult,” according to Adrià. Easy because he knew precisely what he wanted to do; difficult because there was no precedent. The project came from his realization that “there was a void between mass beer and the strong Belgian type of beer.” On the one hand there is the massive lager ocean—beers for refreshment more than for flavor, a silent partner to food (think Stella Artois). On the other are the rarefied, often high alcohol beers—beers for contemplation, but which can often push food aside unless carefully matched (DeuS, Affligem, and so on).

Adrià aimed between the two styles. His beer is called Inedit which means original or unpublished, and is very unusual in that it blends lager and white beer. As a result it boasts a tart, lip-smacking lager attack followed by the creamy bead and delicate fruit flavors of white beer. The white is faintly flavored with orange peel, licorice and coriander and is interestingly savory; white beer is often fruity, verging on sweet.

But what I like most about Inedit is its restraint. So many beers these days try to whomp you over the head with hoppiness or novelty or strength. Inedit places itself quite happily in the upper middle of the comfort-to-impression scale, and I admire that. Plus, check out the price.
