2021 Iron + Sand Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon...$21.99

This broad and structured red has a super polished texture and delivers generous fruit. It’s medium- to full-bodied and deep, yet it’s well balanced and smooth, with a long finish and fine, dusty tannins. Drink or hold.
Rated 91/100 James Suckling

Casa Castillo Las Gravas Jumilla

2020 Casa Castillo Las Gravas Jumilla...$73.99
The phenomenal 2020 Las Gravas was produced with 92% Monastrell from 30- to 40-year-old vines on north-facing gravel soils (hence its name) complemented with 8% Garnacha. It fermented with 30% full clusters and indigenous yeasts in underground stone lagares and matured in a combination of 500-liter barrel and 5,000-liter foudres for 16 months. It has classical parameters, 14.5% alcohol, a pH of 3.47 and 4.87 grams of acidity per liter. The wine is super perfumed and floral, really showy, elegant, nuanced and refined, with the notes of pine needles and wet soil much subtler than in the 2019. There is an ethereal character to the 2020s that I haven't found in any previous vintage here, but at the same time, the wines are very mineral and have lots of energy and light. There is precision, cleanliness, definition and elegance like I hadn't seen before and refined tannins with a pungent mineral sensation in the textured finish. This is an incredible wine for the price asked. 35,500 bottles produced. There was a single bottling in February 2022.

Millpond Brewery from Millstadt Illinois!

Millpond Old Millstadt Light Lager...$13.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Old Millstadt was initially brewed for Millpond’s first Maifest celebration. Brewed with rice and pilsner malt, this light lager is crisp, clean, and crushable. Featuring a replica label from the pre-prohibition Millstadt Brewery Co.

Millpond Dunkes Bier Ur-Pils...$13.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Dunkes Bier is a German Style Pilsner made from the authentic, 188-years old, Schönberger family recipe from Millstadt’s Sister City, Gross-Bieberau, Germany located in the Odenwald region and founded in 787. The Schönberger family founded their bierbraurie in 1835 but closed it many years ago. The Oldenwald region has its own ancient dialect, “Odenwälder” and in that dialect the friendly word for a person from Gross-Bieberau is a “Dunkes”.
We named this beer in honor of that deep tradition because Millstadt was founded in 1836 about the time the ancestors of many current Millstadt residents immigrated here from Gross-Bieberau. We brew Dunkes Bier to preserve the cultural bier heritage of Gross-Bieberau and honor our own ancestry. Crisp, refreshing light-bodied pils with crackery malt and an elegant, floral-herbal hop character.

Millpond Cenote Double Dry-Hopped IPA...$15.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Millpond Cenote Double Dry-Hopped IPA...$4.59 / 16oz can
Pronounced say·no·tei, this hazy IPA is double dry-hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops providing huge flavors of tropical fruit, berries, and citrus, with a juicy round finish.

Maplewood CITRA Juice Pants IPA

Maplewood CITRA Juice Pants IPA....$15.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
We took one of the key hops (and one of our favorites) from Juice Pants, and decided to release a variant using only Citra...and lots of it. Showcasing Citra hops and Citra cryo, this complex and tropically pungent juice bomb is exploding with citrus zest and peach with underlying notes of pineapple.⁠


Equilibrium beers

Our beers are created using the principle of “Mass Balance Brewing,” which focuses on the sources and sinks of different flavors to maximize and balance the right flavors in your glass. Each style of beer (IPA, Farmhouse Ale, Porter/Stout) has unique elements of process and ingredient that has been optimized in this regard.

Equilibrium Run Off Pilsner...$14.99 / 4pk 16oz cans 
Mountain snowcaps melt in the warmer months and water is pulled by gravity across the land’s surface. This unabsorbed water from snowmelt and rain is known as run off and is responsible for forming streams, rivers, lakes, and ultimately feeding the ocean.
Pouring luminous golden in color with a creamy billowy head, we get aromas and flavors of floral fields and bright lemon rinds with a touch of light spice and biscuit. An incredibly clean mouthfeel leads into a welcomed snappy bitterness with a dry and effervescent finish making Run Off a light and easy drinking option for the last days of the summer.

Equilibrium Tie-Dye Science IPA...$15.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Tie-Dye Science (6.5 % ABV IPA) The Folding Technique, Ombre Tie method, Sunburst, Gradiation, Sponge Technique…. There are dozens of methods that can be used while making a Tie-Dye shirt, it’s literally a science. In case you’re wondering how we became Tie-Dye Scientists, we can explain. For the last year or so, every Friday, our production and packaging team has dressed in Tie-Dye to mark the end of the week. It’s a thing around here.
Tie-Dye Science starts off with a nice base of oats and wheat before a T90 and Lupomax Citra and Mosaic hop bill for both the whirlpool and dry hop.
Aromas and flavors of orange slices, papaya, pink starburst, lime gummies lead into a bright juicy finish with a touch of hoppy bitterness all wrapped up in a creamy mouthfeel. Perfect to welcome you into the weekend.

Equilibrium Wavelength IPA....$15.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
6.5% IPA
We started with oats and white wheat for a base before adding Simcoe and Mosaic to the whirlpool. To get some berry medley notes going we dry hopped with Mosaic and Citra at a 2:1 ratio. Wavelength pours bright yellow with aromas of citrus and stone fruit with crushable flavors of mango and berry with a light refreshing finish.

Equilibrium Display of Clarity West Coast DIPA...$19.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Display of Clarity (West Coast Style DIPA) is named after the clarity technique of imaging used to analyze the brain. With 86 billion neurons assembled into very complex circuit, the clarity technique was a breakthrough in scientific imaging making brain imaging more efficient and less evasive, protecting the brain tissue and structure.
We altered our water profile, upped the bitterness, extended the cold crashing, and left out all the soft and fluffy grains to let the simple grain bill and Simcoe with a touch of Citra shine with clarity. We get flavors of pine, lemon rind, floral citrus, and resinous earth with a clean pop of hoppy bitterness and a crisp finish.

Join us for a Brunello and Olive Oil tasting featuring Ciacci Estate Wines with David DuBou of Indigenous Selections
Wednesday, June 19th from 5:30-7pm
Where: The Wine and Cheese Place 7435 Forsyth Blvd in Clayton

We will be showing off the stunning newly released 2019 Brunello and Brunello Pianrosso along with a couple of vintages of Ciacci’s most prized and rare bottling, the Brunello Santa Caterina D’Oro Riserva. Along with these stunning wines we will have a sampling of the Ciacci Estate Olive Oil paired with bread from Union Loafers.

2019 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona - Brunello di Montalcino....$63.99
There's no mistaking this wine for anything but Brunello. The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2019 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful continuity, crescendoing on the nose and palate in synchronicity. There are aromas of grilled watermelon, red cherry, garden herb and violet, and there is a charred note that recalls the toasted oak. The bouquet balances out beautifully, but you do get considerably more power on the palate thanks to the oomph of 15% alcohol and young tannins that get under your gums. Give this wine a few more years of bottle age.

Rated 98/100 Kerin O'Keefe Wine critic specialized in Italian wine and author of four books.

2019 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso...$89.99

The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso opens to a wide and all-encompassing bouquet with dried cherry or cherry pie with the crust, plum tart and rose potpourri. There are evident oak tones, but they fold into underbrush, grilled herb and the generous texture of this wine. Likewise, the 15% alcohol content also neatly disappears into the wine's fleshy fruit consistency. For sure, this is a wine that needs more bottle evolution in order to hone in on the silkiness and pretty freshness of such an important Sangiovese. Exactly 43,054 bottles were made along with about 1,000 larger formats.

2010 Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona - Brunello di Montalcino Vinga di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro Riserva....$229.99
Aromas of plums, flowers, fresh mushrooms and violets. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful balance and length. Powerful tannins underneath the exquisite fruit. Great finish. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold.
Rated 100/100 James Suckling

2012 Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Vinga di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro Riserva....$229.99
Some glossy oak warmth across the ripe red cherry and raspberry aromas on the nose. With walnuts, blonde tobacco, sweet brown spices and earthy nuances too. The palate has a level of power and energy that really sets it apart. Shows a very succulent and vibrant core of red fruits and light earthy notes through the finish. Great balance here. Try from 2022.
