UCBC Stammtisch German Style Pilsner


Super fresh - bottled April 26th

UCBC Stammtisch German Style Pilsner...$8.99 / 4pk 16oz bottles
Tasting Notes:
Crisp, floral, herbal

A "Stammtisch" is an informal group meeting held on a regular basis – more directly translating to ‘table for regulars’. Our Stammtisch was brewed to celebrate this idea of community and socializing. It’s a traditional German Pilsner featuring a blend of Hallertau and Strisselspalt hops, giving it a pronounced herbal and spicy aroma. It's crisp and dry with a light grainy malt profile. We think it's the perfect accompaniment to any gathering.

Dondante Pox Original

"Pox (pronounced “pōsh”) is an ancient beverage of the Mayan culture in Chiapas, produced from grain and sugarcane. In the Mayan language, Pox means “medicine” or “healing”, and the spirit is still used in ceremony and ritual today.
Dondante Pox Original...$39.99
46% ABV
Product of Mexico
Macerated with corn black as night, releasing his spirit of wisdom to an earthly world
"First, sugarcane is crushed, juiced and boiled to create piloncillo (like a sticky brick of raw brown sugar). Meanwhile, four different heritage varieties of corn (white, red, yellow and black) are dried, husked and ground. Next, wheat bran is placed in a large wooden fermenter, and local spring water is slowly introduced. Finally, the ground corn, piloncillo and additional fresh sugarcane juice are added to the vat, where natural, spontaneous fermentation occurs over 10-18 days. The mash is distilled twice, using wood-fired copper pot stills, and proofed to around 42% ABV (proof will vary slightly from batch to batch). The final result is savory on the nose and palate with notes of ancho and guajillo chiles, esquites, dried coconut, and baked corn husk. A fascinating experience! " - importer

Alquimia Tequila

Alquimia Tequila
We proudly cultivate our estate-grown agaves in Jalisco, Mexico, on our family ranch. We have created five tequilas of the highest quality with our propriety organic protocol.  All of our tequila expressions are 100% USDA-certified organic. They are made of 100% all natural blue agave, carefully packaged in artisanal bottles made of recycled glass by a family of glass blowers. We compost our waste and use no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or toxic materials of any kind. All of our production is sustainable and eco-friendly.


Alquimia Tequila Blanco...$52.99
Our Blanco is bottled immediately after distillation without aging. It is the truest expression of pure tequila, as it is not influenced by aging in oak barrels. The aromas are floral and earthy. The taste is dominated by a strong, sweet agave flavor, with a good balance of fruit, white pepper, and floral hints. It has a long duration of flavor with mild spice and an earthy, smoky finish. It makes a refreshingly pure margarita when mixed with fresh citrus juices, and is also very nice to sip.

Alquimia Tequila Reposado....$57.99
Our Reposado is aged for 6 months in white oak barrels. This lightly aged tequila can be used in specialty cocktails and is delicious to sip. The Reposado has retained the agave aromas and flavors of the Blanco, with subtle hints of the oak. Its light gold color is suggestive of its mild presentation on the nose and palate. Ends with a nice warm finish.

Alquimia Tequila Añejo ....$65.99
Our Añejo is aged for just under 3 years in white oak barrels. The oak wood gives the tequila a distinctive flavor and golden amber color. With aromas and flavors of caramel, fruit, mild vanilla and spice, it has a pleasant finish with moderate notes of agave, earth, and floral tones. A long duration of flavor makes this tequila ideal for sipping. This is best enjoyed sipped in a cognac snifter.

Alquimia Extra Añejo Reserva de Don Adolfo....$129.99

The Extra Añejo Reserva de Don Adolfo is aged for 6 years in white oak barrels. This sipping tequila is described as a “cognac-like” spirit. It has a beautiful, rich golden color with a thick body. The aromas are dominated by cinnamon, herbs, and spices. Very robust on the palate, it has a bold and vibrant complexity. A long sweet, spicy, and exotic fruit finish that is best savored slowly

Alquimia Extra Añejo XIV Reserva de Oro....$229.99
The Extra Añejo Reserva de Oro is aged for 14 years in white oak barrels. This sipping tequila has spicy aromas and flavors of dark caramel on rye, cedar plank, nutmeg, dark chocolate, cinnamon, cardamom and toasted almonds. It has a lively, fruity medium-full body with a warming, very long finish, evoking notes of flamed orange, toffee, flan and a dark roasted agave finish. It is described as “a rich and decadent tequila with excellent intensity of flavor and a memorable style.” We loved it so much straight out of the barrel that we decided to bottle it immediately at full strength, 100 proof.

Brandlin Mount Veeder Cab at an insane price!

Only 12 bottles available at this price!
2019 Brandlin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Mt Veeder...$69.99 - INCREDIBLE PRICE!!
Lowest price on is $109.99!!

Nestled high on the ridgeline of the Mayacamas mountain range, our Mount Veeder estate is known as a source for wines of rich texture and mouth-filling flavor. Upon first sip, the 2019 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit forward with blackberry, and boysenberry notes intertwined with a bouquet of allspice, cardamom and black tea. On the finish, savory hints of cassis, tobacco and olive surf gracefully on the palate and are rounded out by an inviting bed of rich but supple tannins.

Very expressive, with zesty anise and apple wood mixed with sassafras and sweet bay leaf flavors, all backed by a dense, polished core of blackberry and açaí berry fruit. Features a hint of tar that adds spine and textural contrast to the finish. Big all around, but everything is well-proportioned. Best from 2023 through 2038.
Rated 94/100 Wine Spectator

Very ripe, lush, jammy fruit flavors give a lot of pleasure to this full-bodied wine as moderate tannins add good structure to the palate, firming up black cherries, cranberries and blueberries that show excellent depth. Best from 2025–2035.
Rated 93/100 Wine Enthusiast

Hints of sage and bay accent cherry and cassis notes on the nose of Brandlin's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full-bodied, firm and layered with dusty tannins, it's a classically built mountain Cab that could use a few years in the cellar—or a massive hunk of rare beef.
