Surly Brewing Coffee Bender...$8.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
BREWED FOR: PAIRING THE TWO BEST THINGS.
REFRESHES LIKE AN ICED-COFFEE, IS AROMATIC AS A BAG OF WHILE BEANS AND SATISFIES LIKE YOUR FAVORITE BEER.
Guatemalan coffee, roasted locally, added to Bender, our oatmeal brown ale. Coldpress coffee aromas, intense coffee flavors balanced by the oats in the malt bill, resulting in a cappuccino-like creaminess.






Surly Abrasive Double IPA...$13.99 / 4pk cans
BREWED FOR: MORE HOPS. MORE, MORE, MORE.
A MASSIVE DOSE OF CITRA HOPS LAUNCHES OUR LEGENDARY DOUBLE IPA (MINNESOTA’S FIRST, AND A NOD TO OUR ABRASIVES FACTORY ORIGIN) INTO THE HOPHEAD STRATOSPHERE.
We originally brewed this beer at the end of 2008 to bid farewell to growler sales, only to underestimate the demand for the first double IPA in Minnesota. We brewed the beer again in spring 2009 and the rest is IPA history. Also history: 16 Grit, the beer’s first handle and a size of abrasive grit used at the old abrasives factory that houses the original Surly mothership in Brooklyn Center.

2018 Vina Robles The Arborist $14.99
This is a screamingly good deal, offering both hedonistic pleasure and complexity through a blend of 41% Syrah, 35% Petite Sirah, 12% Grenache and 12% Tannat. Aromas of roasted cherry, smoked meat and cola spice lead into a hearty palate of black currant, roasted game and licorice. It's balanced by bright acidity, making for a sip that will satisfy many

Rothhaus Tannenzäpfle Pils

First time available in St. Louis!




Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Pils...$13.99 / 6pk 
The Rothaus Brewery is Germany’s highest brewery by elevation, at 1,000 meters above sea level. Situated in Germany’s beautiful Black Forest, the brewery was first established in 1791. Today, Rothaus is accredited as one of the most successful breweries in Germany, largely due to the high quality of their products.

FUN FACTS
Tannenzäpfle means “pine cone” in German – a fitting name as there are many pine cone producing spruce-fir trees in the Black Forest.

The icon, “Biergit” (beer girl), a Black Forest girl holding two glasses of beer, first debuted in 1956 and is now the defining symbol for all beers made for the Rothaus Brewery.


Tannenzäpfle Pils – Tannenzäpfle is made from the finest, all-natural ingredients Germany has to offer:
  • Water sourced from 7 natural springs in the heart of the Black Forest.
  • Malted barley from the Highlands and Valleys of the Black Forest.
  • Aroma hops from the Tettnang and Hallertau areas next to the Black Forest.
  • The yeast is cultivated at the brewery and is exclusively used in Rothaus beers.
  • No bitter hops are ever added to Tannenzäpfle Pils and no other ingredients are used in brewing this deliciously refreshing Pilsner.

Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey










Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$44.99
With pourer
compare to $49.99 at Total Wine and More
The Old Elk recipe includes three quality ingredients – malted barley, rye, and corn. By investing in our bourbon and using four times more malted barley than traditional recipes, the bourbon generates sweet, light components. The malted barley, combined with spicy essence of clove from the rye, and the traditional rich bourbon character from the corn, creates the overall robust taste profile.

Tasting Profile - Best for Sipping Whiskey:
Aroma: Sweet vanilla and caramel, clove spice, slight maple, and nutty almond
Taste: Maple syrup, almond, raw bran, chocolate, deep wood, and coconut
Mouthfeel: Smooth and coating with a lasting flavor-

Boulevard / 3 Floyds Deep Flux Barleywine.







SOLD OUT

Boulevard / 3 Floyds Deep Flux Barleywine...$13.99 /4pk 12oz bottles
DEEP (adj) extending far down from the top or surface.
FLUX (n) describes something that constantly changes
A while back, we took our friends at 3 Floyds on a long strange trip down a deep, dark hallway past thousands of our bourbon, rum, tequila, and red wine barrels. We stopped to rest next to a collection of rye whiskey and Madeira wine casks, and after a few beers, we agreed that, yes, these were the chosen ones. A couple more beers and we heard them tell us they wanted to be filled with barleywine – and when barrels speak, we listen.

Deep Flux is a unique, pale barleywine that pours a rich auburn color with aromas of brown sugar, oak, and dark stone fruit. This malty brew is beautifully complimentary of its barrel aging, which spent 100% of its process in wood barrels and broke down into 60% in rye whiskey barrels and 40% in Madeira wine casks. The end result for Deep Flux is a big and boisterous barleywine with resplendent flavors of rye, Madeira, and oak lurking in the barrels.
We think you’ll agree that this beer is far from ordinary.

Bell's Expedition Stout


Bell's Expedition Stout...$16.99 / 6pk

One of the earliest examples of Russian Imperial Stouts in the United States, Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with aging in mind.
A huge malt body is matched with a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruit and other aromas. The flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages in your cellar.

Belle Meade Cask Strength Reserve Bourbon




New Batch!

Belle Meade Cask Strength Reserve Bourbon...$54.99
  • 54.15% ABV
  • 108.3 proof
Belle Meade Bourbon Cask Strength Reserve is a premium full strength whiskey created to quench the growing demand for well-aged, higher proof bourbon.
We taste every barrel in our inventory and reserve the ones that taste good enough to be a Single Barrel but don't have a high enough proof to be a Single Barrel. We batch these reserve barrels with others barrels in our inventory that raise the proof of the batch while accentuating the flavors of those reserve barrels. When blended together, these barrels of well-aged bourbon create a product that is greater than the sum of its individual parts.
Each small batch of our Reserve is comprised of just seven of these exceptional barrels.
Belle Meade Bourbon Cask Strength Reserve is a bold bourbon for those who appreciate whiskey straight from the barrel. Try it neat, on the rocks, with a splash of water, or use it to kick the flavor of your favorite cocktail up a few notches

Bells Brewing Lampshade Party DIPA







Bells Brewing Lampshade Party DIPA...$16.99 / 6pk bottles

Feel free to indulge, and if a lampshade comes into play, so be it.
