Duvel Tripel Hop CITRA

Duvel is a classic!
Duvel Tripel Hop CITRA...$12.99 / 4pk

Ever since 2007 the brewers at Duvel have been busy innovating with a third hop variety to give Duvel a surprising twist and some extra bitterness. Each spring this results in the launch of a unique Tripel Hop, which complements the rest of the Duvel range.

Six Tripel Hops later, in 2016, Duvel went in search of the ultimate Duvel Tripel Hop. More than 5,000 fans tasted and voted, and Citra was clearly the favorite. The Duvel Tripel Hop with citra not only won a gold medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge, it was also awarded the consumer trophy at the Zythos Beer Festival.

Our brewers do not simply add a third hop variety when creating the Tripel Hop, we also apply a special process of dry-hopping. In this case, besides adding the usual hops during the cooking process, extra hop cones are added at a later stage in the brewery process (during the lagering process). This intensifies and refines the hop aromas in the finished beer. The aromatic third hop is grown in the Yakima Valley in Washington and enriches the flavor palate with fresh hints of grapefruit and tropical fruit.

Gerard Duplessis Chablis --- Classic Chablis

Back in stock!

Domaine Gerard Duplessis Chablis:
A family domaine for five generations created in 1895, one of the very few organic estates in Chablis.

2014 Duplessis Chablis Montee de Tonnerre...$39.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $54.99
The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre has a very strict and linear, almost tertiary bouquet at first with subtle undergrowth aromas, but it gains intensity with aeration and develops a light white chocolate scent. The palate is well balanced with a saline entry with hints of dried honey and spice, gentle and harmonious; the finish was a little sweeter than I was anticipating.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

2014 Duplessis Chablis Montmains 1er Cru...$33.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $40.99
The 2014 Chablis 1Er Cru Montmains probably displays the best mineralité on the nose. It is tight and linear at first, but there are lovely flint and granite scents that surface with several swirls of the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, lively and spicy on the entry, moderate depth and slightly pinched on the finish. Give this a year or two in bottle and I am certain that it will put on a little more weight. Still, a very fine Montmains with class.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

2015 Duplessis Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru...$34.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $46.00
The 2015 Chablis 1Er Cru Fourchaume comes from two small parcels that together total 0.40 hectares. It has a generous bouquet with scents of dried honey and acacia, perhaps here articulating more the growing season than the terroir. The palate is richer and more viscous in texture than the Vaillons and perhaps as a consequence it does not quite deliver the riveting complexity and precision that I have discerned on other vintages." -- Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate 

Redbreast Sherry Finish Lustau Edition

Redbreast Sherry Finish Lustau Edition...$68.99

It is then finished for 1 additional year in first fill hand selected sherry butts that have been seasoned with the finest Oloroso sherry from the prestigious Bodegas Lustau in Jerez, Spain.

93 point Cabernet for $15

An incredible value from Super Star Winemaker Charles Smith

2016 Wines of Substance Cabernet CS....$14.99
The largest production cuvée, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was vinified in tank before being pressed to barrel where it went through malo. Aged 13 months in barrels, its vibrant purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of blueberries, cassis, scorched earth, and spice. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen, and it's a no-brainer purchase. Just pretend you paid three times the price.
Rated 93/100 Jeb Dunnuck

Glutenberg APA....$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
The American Pale Ale is Glutenberg’s first incursion in the universe of hoppy beers. A savoury concoction with citrusy notes, this beer perfectly showcases the brewery’s versatility. Its orange and grapefruit aromas softly temper the straight-up character of American hops by endowing it with a slight touch of bitterness. The result is a delectable, balanced, resinous and full-bodied beer.

Glutenberg IPA...$9.99/ 4pk 16oz cans
Glutenberg’s IPA is a dream come true for microbrewed beer fans. A true little bomb of flavours, it presents a perfect harmony between citrus aroma, hop freshness and bitterness. This beer guarantees a soft contact with taste buds, releasing apricot and soft caramel notes. Its exacerbated dry side makes its bouquet of flavours shine and ensures its good aromatic persistence. To be consumed cold and in great quantity!

Glutenberg White....$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
The Blanche is a completely unique interpretation of a classic style of Belgian inspiration. Traditionally brewed with wheat, Glutenberg renewed the style entirely to put forward a 100% gluten- and wheat-free beer, a tour de force of which only we hold the recipe.The Glutenberg White's distinction lies in its quinoa and amaranth composition, which endows it with a noticeable grainy profile, ensuring a steady mouth-feel. Soft and refreshing, with hints of coriander and curaçao, the White is the perfect nectar to quench your thirst.

Glutenberg Blonde....$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Glutenberg’s Blonde is the proud originator of the series, the pioneer of real good gluten-free beer. Airy and lemony, this golden-hued beer reveals floral and lightly herbal notes, making room for a dry and tasty finale. The brewery’s first creation, it paved the road to success and still imposes itself as a thirst-quenching beer that can charm any palate.
