Blackberry Farm “Classic Saison”...$14.99 / 750ml
This is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale. The aroma is dominated by fruity esters reminiscent of citrus fruits along with a moderate earthy and floral hop aroma from the use of Noble-type hops in the brewing process. Has a deep gold, hue that is often hazy, and a voluminous head on pouring as a result of the bottle-conditioning and high natural carbonation. The beer is medium-bodied and has a very refreshing effervescence which, along with a fairly low alcohol content of 6% by volume, makes this a beer to be enjoyed on a warm day by itself or with a wide range of foods, whether casual or fine dining. Complex flavors and aromas in this beer are a result of the special yeast used in fermentation combined with the additional complexity added by bottle-conditioning in large bottles for at least six weeks before being released.

Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

2017 Escudo Real Vinho Verde Rose...$8.99
Grapes: Touriga Nacional (60%) and Espadeiro (40%)
Escudo Real ROSE is all about the strawberry and red currants. The amazing pink color gives way to well-balanced flavors in the mouth that do super well with food. At 10.5% alcohol, this fresh fruity, slightly sparkly rose is a sunny-time must. Pink color and lively strawberry and red currant flavor complemented with floral hints reveal the exuberance of the aroma. In the mouth it’s well balanced with good acidity and tart fresh fruit notes, young and crisp. It boasts a smooth, delicate finish.

30% Grenache Gris, 30% Grenache Noir, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.
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: Offers aromas of pineapple, mango, white peach, and pear. Dry, crisp, and refreshing on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.
Serve With: Will provide immense enjoyment on its own, and pair well with a wide range of lighter fare.


2017 Boniface Les Rocailles Rosé de Savoie...$18.99
100% Gamay Rose
A true earthly paradise nestled in the French Alps, Les Rocailles is owned and managed by boyhood friends and native Savoyards Guillaume Durand and Alban Thouroude, who purchased the estate and négociant business from Pierre Boniface upon his retirement in 2006. The wines have never been better at Les Rocailles!

This light and airy, pale-pink Rosé wine is a blend of three grapes: Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon with a hint of Cot, all three patiently tended to obtain rich, perfectly ripened fruit.
TASTING NOTE: I designed this wine with a summer evening in mind: feminine, light and airy, to be enjoyed chilled in perfect privacy beneath a shady arbour. Its pale rose-pink hue is reflected in its floral bouquet with hints of citrus fruit and spices. The palate has the typical freshness of Cabernet and a delicate mouthfeel highlighted by invigorating minerality!
“Go for the simple pleasures in life and share this wine with friends as a summer aperitif. Serve it on a crisp white tablecloth accompanied by green olives – you need nothing else! Enjoy!

Brouwerij Van Eecke Poperings Hommel....$2.99 / 750ml
ABV: 7.50%

TASTE:   Rather hoppy, flowerly aroma, round spicyness.
FOOD PAIRINGS:   Best served chilled to allow flavor and aroma to blossom. Pair with a cheeseburger topped with onions, or with spicy dishes.

Once a hop seed is planted it takes three years for it to grow and produce hop cones viable for brewing. This moment is celebrated in Belgium’s hop growing region, Poperinge, with a Tri-Annual hop festival.
Regional brewers were asked to create a festive beer for this occasion. Van Eecke’s Hommel Bier was selected so many times as the festival’s best that it has become synonymous with the region itself.
Unlike American IPA, Hommel Bier highlights the elegant floral aromas of Hallertau and East Kent Goldings hops. Along with a few secret hops, this brew is rounded out with notes of citrus, honey and cumin seed.

Monks Cafe Flemish Sour Red




Another great sale just arrived ---
Monks Cafe Flemish Sour Red...$7.99 / 4pk CANS
was $12.99


"As Belgian beer lovers, you certainly know about the famous restaurant-bar in Philadelphia with the name Monk’s Café. This restaurant is known all over the USA as one of the best places to find an extensive selection of Belgian beers, and also great food cooked in Belgian beer. The owner Tom Peters is one of the many people who fell in love years ago with Belgian beer, and one of the few who had the passion and tenacity to learn all about it. He goes at least four times per year to Belgium, to emerge himself in the Belgian beer culture, to revisit his favorite bars (for example Brugge – De Garre) and restaurants (for example: ‘t Hommelhof in Watou), and to talk with as many brewers as possible. All his “Belgian” experience is translated in the concept, selection and menu of his famous restaurant. Go there

So, in 2002 he finally had the opportunity, and the courage to convince the Van Steenberge brewery to bottle its famous ‘BIOS - Vlaamse Bourgogne’ under private label for him. The Flemish Burgundy of the Van Steenberge brewery is an OLD BROWN in style, aged in oak, and is one of the oldest brews made by the brewery, at least brewed for over 300 years. Tom Peters knew the beer since long, but had always trouble to find some bottles, even in Belgium. Indeed, the beer is only brewed once a year. A final tasting of a whole line of Belgian Old Browns in the Brugs Beertje bar (Brugge) tilted the decision: this is the best Old brown ale in the world! And Tom went to the brewery to see Mr. Paul Van Steenberge and Mr. Jef Versele, the owners of the brewery." -- importer

Schlafly Paloma Gose



Schlafly Paloma Gose...$11.99 / 750ml
ABV: 4.5% | IBU: 5
Influence can come from anywhere. And sometimes it comes from more than one place and time. Meet the beer born of a union between ancient Germany and modern Mexico—the Paloma Gose. Its salty, coriander-tinted and perfectly sour character of the Gose provides the ideal framework for the addition of tequila-influenced grapefruit and lime. With low alcohol and hop profiles, it’s a cocktail disguised as a wonderfully-balanced beer. An ancient classic.

Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday...$17.99 / 12 pack bottles

also sold in singles at Forsyth
An UnFiltered Born Again Pale Ale for all the wet hop lovers!
We’ve discovered that the Lagunitas brewers are part time alchemists... they’ve figured out how to keep wet hops wet all freakin’ year long! The next beer in our 2016 #OneHitter Series is this Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, which features a delicious concoction of wet hops, reborn and unfiltered into our Born Yesterday Pale Ale. Congrats... It’s a beer again!

MORE ABOUT THE FREAKIN' WET HOPS:
To figure out this brand new wet hop preservation process, we had to forget everything that we already knew about how hops are processed and preserved. We tried 5 or 6 different things to try and achieve this process (some of which failed miserably), then we discovered a relatively simple process that deliberately did all the things that the textbooks told us not to do.

This new proprietary process involves a lot of time and money, and even more thinking about hops and freshness in new ways. From all of this, we found a brand-spankin’-new way to preserve the hops, fresh from the Yakima Valley trellises, first born during harvest season into the Born Yesterday last fall, and reborn into this scary new next step, the Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, six months later, to the beer in your hands today.

Who wants to kick fruit out of beer? Not us. When done right, adding orange or grapefruit or tangerine can contribute a deeper level of delicious complexity to the beer. In this case, peach was the perfect complement to enhance the substantial bill of hops in this double IPA. May its reign last more than a few terms.

New Belgium The Hemperor IPA





New Belgium The Hemperor IPA...$11.99 / 6pk 
The Hemperor HPA – The World’s Dankest Ale
Get ready: an exciting new offering that’ll change the way you think about hoppy beers is coming your way. The brewers at New Belgium have created a new style of IPA: The Hemperor HPA. With the popularity of hoppy beers, our brewers are always on the lookout for different hop varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclusion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way—not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.
