"Kreilich Farm bacon is made the way my great-grandfather made it after coming from Germany to Missouri. If you lived 150 years ago this is how bacon would have tasted. Our bacon is produced in extremely small quantities to ensure the finest quality for our customers. It is made using only natural ingredients and traditional methods. No nitrates, nitrites, chemical solutions, phosphates, or water are ever used. We use a time-honored family recipe of spices and herbs to dry cure our bacon. Our bacon is then smoked slowly over apple and pecan wood for hours."
This is base camp, where any craft brew exploration begins. A distinct hop nose and hop-forward flavor make Mirror Pond the quintessential Pale Ale. It is aromatically complex, multi-layered, and unmistakably “right.”
Scorpion Silver Mezcal....$34.99 Gold Medal / 94 points, BTI. Silver Medal, SF World Spirits Competition. (100% Agave)
Appearance: Clear as molten glass in the bottle- it is a beautiful thing. On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which belies its viscosity. Sitting in the glass it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar. Quite a striking contrast to most clear spirits such as vodka.
First Impression: A dry bouquet, hints of lime, citrus, cucumber salt, and savory herbs, and on more warming: char, creosote, some spiciness, and a faint trace of balsam.
Taste: Dry and sweet at the same time somehow, lime, citrus, leather and dry smoke, almost a tannic. Light and spritely on the tongue mouth feel, whispers down the throat and then leaves a rather delicate warming considering the 80 proof with a smoky spicy aftertaste. Like a mesquite campfire, this is amazingly complex. Spirits Review
This award-winning Scorpion Silver Mezcal is artisan-made in small batches in Oaxaca, Mexico, with a real scorpion in every bottle. This version is freshly distilled and bottled without aging. The distinctive bottle comes with it's own little Scorpion Mezcal® sombrero.
Scorpion Reposado Mezcal...$36.99
Superb / Highly Recommended, Wine Enthusiast. Silver Medal / Highly Recommended, BTI 92 Points Silver Medal, SF World Spirits Competition. (100% Agave) This smooth mezcal is rested in oak barrels for between 2 and 11 months. Excellent for sipping.
Appearance: Oak amber color in the bottle. If it was maple syrup it would be a medium amber - It is a beautiful thing! On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which belies its viscosity. Sitting in the glass it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar.
First Impression: Smoky and more understated and delicate than the Scorpion Silver. Dry, with a bouquet of lime, citrus, and cucumber - salt, and savory herbs, and on more warming: char, creosote, some spiciness. The oak aging even at only 6 months shines through.
Taste: Dry and sweet at the same time somehow, with citrus, leather, dry smoke and lime, hints of cardamon, nutmeg. It is resinous on the tongue and mouth feel, whispers down the throat and then leaves a rather delicate warming considering the 80 proof. It has a smokey, spicy aftertaste like a mesquite campfire. This is amazingly complex stuff- very smooth and too easy-to-drink. Spirits Review

BTI 95 Points
What you will experience is a fresh, nimble, nicely balanced spirit with a hint of melon flavor. FWM
Appearance: Dark amber color in the bottle. If it was maple syrup, it would be a medium amber. It is a beautiful thing! On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which belies its viscosity. Sitting in the glass, it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar.
First Impression: Very smoky and more understated than the others. Smells like a tin of just opened sobranie tobacco, with strong Phenol and smoke.
Taste: Dry and sweet at the same time somehow, with lime, leather, oil, and smoke, and a suggestion of mint. Resinous on the tongue, and mouth feel. It whispers down the throat, and then leaves a rather delicate burn considering the 80 proof, with a smoky spicy aftertaste like a really good tobacco and spicy notes. Spirits Review

"A beautiful brown ale that give off a delightful aroma of espresso beans, citrus, and spice - the results is amazing, lusty and incoherent - yes, it's your wildest desires in a bottle. Exclusively brewed for the Trappist. Not the order of Cisterclans monks in Belgium because they make some pretty sweet beers on their own. But the Trappist beer bar in Oakland, California, where the sun shines, the vibe is cool and the beer selection is out of this world. Enjoy y'all." - label
Each case has a mix of IPA and Black IPA - you don't know until you open the bottle which one you get, the label is the same (or hold the bottle up to the light)

Boulevard Long Strange Tripel....$10.99 / 4pk
"Lately it occurs to us that if, back in 1989, you planned on starting a brewery in the back of your carpentry shop, you'd been wise to seek out someone like Harold “Trip” Hogue. A collector of ancient Volvos, Trip was well qualified for the make-do engineering required to coax recalcitrant equipment out of retirement and into making the first Boulevard beers. Today, he is our longest-tenured employee. We offer this rich, golden Tripel in grateful tribute to dedication, everywhere." - Boulevard

(I don't know why they put everything in caps on their website, but I just cut and pasted, did not feel like re-typing it all)
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.
