New in From Off Color Brewing


Off Color Brewing Well Fed Sheep...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
TASTING NOTES
A rich malt, light caramel, and biscuit profile (from as much malt as our brewhouse could hold) is accentuated by a slight alcoholic presence, while distinct honey notes compliment the dry finish. Pale copper on color with only enough hops to balance the huge malt profile.
SECRET TECHNIQUES
Scotch Ales focus on malt (and booze) but ferment cooler than most other ales to rein in harsh alcoholic burn and have very low hopping rates. The addition of honey adds a layer of complexion and dries out the finish.
INGREDIENTS
Pale and Melanoidin Malt, Roasted Barley, Nugget Hops, Star Thistle Honey, water
Off Color Brewing Very, Very Far...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Great American Beer Festival® 2019 Gold Medal for Other Belgian-Style Ale
TASTING NOTES
Golden multifaceted Belgian style ale with subtle fruit cocktail notes of grapefruit and lychee complimented with apricot hop character and a layer of black peppercorn phenols. 6.0 % alc/vol
SECRET TECHNIQUES
Very, Very Far adds a twist on the spirit of Belgian mixed fermentation brewing by utilizing a non-traditional wine yeast, Torulaspora delbrueckii.* The Torulaspora yeast feasts on the simple sugars before fermentation is completed with the addition of a traditional Belgian yeast strain. The symbiotic fermentation causes an elevated ethyl ester fruit profile in the final beer.
Off Color Brewing Beer for Lounging...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
TASTING NOTES
Beer for Lounging revolves around the balance between bread crumb malt and subtle hints of grapefruit, orange rind, and pear. A dry finish and moderate alcohol content makes this the perfect companion to your next lounging activity.
SECRET TECHNIQUES
Most pale ales get most of their hop flavor from dry hopping (or adding hops directly to the fermenting vessel). A full range of hop essential oils (flavor intensive natural oils) are transferred into the final beer when the hops are added to the cool beer. Among these hop oils is myrcene (pronounced mehr-sen), which is the most potent of all hop oils and is responsible for
Beer for Lounging utilizes a method called hopbacking, which runs hot, but not boiling, grain sugar solution (or wort) through a bed of whole cone hops. The hot wort removes almost all the myrcene oil, which volatilizes at 147F. So only the more subtle hop oils carry through to the final beer and leaves out the lawn clippings.

Nelson Bros. Cognac Cask Whiskey

 
Nelson Bro's Cognac Cask Whiskey...$69.99 / 750ml
Nelson Brothers’ Cask Finish Series represents a glorious union of tradition and creativity in the distiller's craft. Select barrels of our celebrated bourbon are enlivened by the characteristic aromas and flavors of the special casks that host the final stage of the aging process. Each varietal reveals a startling and delicious new dimension of whiskey’s timeless character—none more so than the Cognac Cask Finish.
The French oak casks selected for this release were originally used to age a blend of eau-de-vie made from grapes grown in the legendary vineyards of Cognac in Southwestern France. When our award-winning bourbon enters these casks, the results come close to alchemy— the Cognac’s rich colors and earthy-sweet notes, married to the high-rye savor of Nelson Brothers Bourbon, yield an ingenious and irresistible expression.

Nose: pear, crème brûlée, raspberry

Toppling Goliath Pils

 
Toppling Goliath Pils...$10.99 / 6pk 12oz cans
Our Pilsner is brewed with simplicity and results in the harmonious confluence of meticulously executed old-world traditions and ingredients. Our iteration of the Hochkurz mash schedule meant we’d be executing six different temperature rests, each of which carries a specific focus in mind; and while this is significantly more labor intensive than a current-day single infusion mash, the difference in the end result speaks for itself. An egg-white foam rests atop a crisp, clear, golden beer, with just a hint of Hallertau Mittelfruh hops coming through in the finish.
Pilsner • 5.5% ABV

2020 Garzon Tannat Reserva

New and exciting - Tannat grape from Uruguay
2020 Garzon Tannat Reserva...$15.99
Product of Uruguay

This wine sets the bar for the coastal vineyards of Uruguay with its dark-skinned beauty, its fresh purple plum and lively red berry flavors over the pencil-shaving notes of the tannins. Grown in the coastal hills, in decomposed granite, this is a New-World floral essence of a French-Atlantic grape. There’s a thin, high wall of tannins to surround all the bright fruit.
Rated 93/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine
Dark cherries, fresh blackberries, dried meat, minerals and some savory spices. This is a medium-to full-bodied, tight and chewy red with nice austerity to remind you that this is a tannat. Sinewy, very tight and robust, but not drying in the finish. Drink after 2023.
Rated 91/100 James Suckling

Domaine de Servans Cotes du Rhone





New 2020 vintage is fantastic!
2020 Domaine de Servans Cotes du Rhone....$14.99

The grapes for this wine are organically grown in sandy clay soil in two different parcels: 4 hectares surrounding the domaine; and 4.5 hectares in the quarter called le Moulinas. The yields are 45 to 50 hl/ha and the vines average 40 years in age. The grapes are harvested by hand with a hand triage to select only the best quality grapes. They are de-stemmed and crushed, followed by maceration in temperature controlled tanks. The two grape varietals are vinified separately based on the time at which they are harvested. This ensures that each grape variety is brought in and vinified at optimal maturity. The wine rests in tank and is racked 2 to 3 times over the winter.

In 2015 the Graniers decided to continue to increase the percentage of Syrah in their blend. This increase has given the wine added depth and concentration, without sacrificing balance in the wine. In the mouth, rich blackberry notes give way to red cherry and black pepper spice. Even with the increased percentage of Syrah, the tannins are very supple and round in the finish. The current blend is 50/50 Grenache and Syrah. The wine is certified organic by Ecocert

Kentucky Owl Bourbon Maighstir Edition



Kentucky Owl Bourbon Maighstir Edition...$119.99
Compare to $134.99 at Total Wine and More
Maighstir is born from a collaboration between Kentucky Owl Master Blender, John Rhea and Scotch Whisky Master Blender, Maureen Robinson. Maighstir (pronounced May-stir) is a traditional Gaelic word meaning "Master"  
Kentucky Owl Maighstir Edition has been awarded 96 points by Tasting Panel magazine.
50% ABV- 100 Proof

Nose: There is a sweet sense of small grains particularly the malted barley, with a hint of sweet caramel. The balance of the small grains (wheat and barley) with the hint of sweet caramel/vanilla, gives the immediate sensation and question in your mind; is this a great bourbon, or is this a great Scotch? Honestly, smelling it will make you feel like you are in a Scotch Whisky warehouse.

Palate: Initially there is sense of warm spicy sweetness from the rye that you might expect from a great bourbon, but then the combination and soft tones from the wheat and barley give a pleasant calming warmness to the tongue. As it melts in the mouth the essence of orange and grapefruit linger behind the soft velvety feel in the mouth.

Finish: In the throat, the soft caramel/vanilla reappears and trails away with a long soft pleasant finish.

At the (IN)Famous Bar
Inside The Wine and Cheese Place
Friday and Saturday, 1/26 & 1/27 Forsyth location only

Three ¾ ounce drams for $10

Almost any grain can be malted – the process in which the grain is moistened and begins to germinate, creating enzymes in the seed that will convert starches in the grain into sugars. Barley malt is the most common and rye malt much less common. Unmalted rye has a black pepper, thin mouthfeel. Malted rye has a big malty, caramel sweetness along with spice.,

Old Potrero 6 Year Malted Rye Whiskey (San Francisco, Calfornia)....$69.99
This straight rye whiskey was aged in new handmade fine grain charred American oak barrels. In traditional barrel making, the cooper heats the staves over a fire of oak chips, allowing them to be bent and formed into a barrel. During this process, the inside of the barrel becomes lightly toasted. By the early 19th century, coopers had learned that if they allowed the heat to continue, the inside of the barrel would burst into flames and become charred. Handmade oak barrels—charred in this traditional manner—impart a rich color and unique character to this rye whiskey. 48.5% ABV
