Danish Porter

Thisted Bryghus Limfjords Porter....$4.49 / 11.2oz
"Limfjords Porter came to Thisted Bryghus after seven years of experiments at an urban brewery in Aalborg where the brewmaster of Thisted Bryghus used to work before it was closed. THisted bought the name in 1986 and in 1997 the brewmaster finally decided that he had achieved the perfect composition of malts. The most notable ingredients are smoked malt, rye malt, and licorice from England. Limfjords Porter is the Brewmaster's pet project and is often called "The Gentleman of Beers". -- importer

Notes from the late Michael Jackson:
"... The surprise climax to the tasting was labelled in English as a Double Brown Stout and in Danish with the local name of Limfjords Porter. Like other Danish beers in this style it was bottom-fermenting, but it was full of character, a dense, brownish, head over a slatey, black, brew; full-bodied and lightly oily; a touch of burnt-grass, rooty, peatiness; a long, warming, finish, and an alcohol content of 7.9%. The flavors were very complex, and I was not surprised to hear that both smoked malt and licorice were used." -- Michael Jackson

Scotch Club for St. Louis

A new Single Malt Society for St. Louis.....


If you're a fan of single malt scotches, or would like to learn more about them, you're invited to join Drummond McDougall's Single Malt Society.

The goal of the Society is to create a fun and informal atmosphere for tasting the many scotches available. There are far too many, and they are far too costly, for most of us to sample more than a few.

Enter Drummond MacDougall. The Single Malt Society will allow you to sample five quality single malts at every tasting, encompassing a variety of distilleries, styles and price ranges. We’ll also enjoy some cheese and crackers, and learn a little about the history and legend of scotch whiskys.

The Society will meet every other month at the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton, Missouri.

So whether you’re well-versed in the wonders of scotch, or would like to learn, there’s a place at the tasting table waiting for you at the Single Malt Society.

If you'd like to learn more, please visit their website at

Founders Harvest....

Bottled Sept 24!

Two new awards ---

RFT 2009 Reader's Poll

St. Louis' Best Liquor Store

WINNER: The Wine and Cheese Place

"Don't be fooled by the fancy name. There's enough booze at the Clayton outpost of local chain the Wine & Cheese Place to stock the green room at a Guns N' Roses reunion tour. While the vast wine selection and cheese counter are the flagship attractions, the liquor aisle is a sight to behold, particularly for those in search of exotic or top-shelf spirits. The W&CP stocks everything from the finest single-malt scotches to five different types of absinthe (including airline-size bottles) to hard-to-find mixers (agave nectar, anyone?) to imported Cuban rum (bottled in the Dominican Republic, of course). Particularly dear to the RFT staffers' livers is the tequila rack. The Place, which earlier this year hosted a release party for 901 Silver, Justin Timberlake's craft tequila brand, also carries hard-to-find brands such as El Tesoro Paradiso, not to mention PatrĂ³n in gallon-size decanters, a.k.a. the Axl Rose special." -- RFT

St. Louis' Best Cheese Counter
WINNER: The Wine and Cheese Place

"In belt-tightening times, fine cheese might not be at the top of the average shopper's list, but for those of us who don't have room in the fridge for Kraft singles, great cheese is an affordable luxury. And when we shop for cheese, we want the assistance of a staff that knows the way around its own cheese counter. So off we hie to the Wine & Cheese Place, where we start off by forgetting the name of one of the cheeses we're looking to buy. It's a Swiss cheese (without holes), and you make some fondue-like deal with it. Raclette? Bingo! Everyone knows Parmigiano-Reggiano, but that illustrious name comes with a high-flying price. That's why if you ask, you might just learn that an Argentinean version of Parmesan tastes great and costs less. But the Wine & Cheese Place's cheese-friendliness really comes into its own when you don't know what you want. Four simple words: "What do you recommend?"" -- RFT
