2011 Panarroz Jumilla Red GSM....$11.99
“The 2011 Panarroz, composed of 80% Mourvedre and the rest equal parts Syrah and Grenache, offers a dense ruby/plum color as well as sweet aromas of peppery, meaty, plum and dark berry fruit. This unoaked, naked, medium-bodied red reveals lots of fruit, slightly less density than the 2010, and a solid personality that fills the palate with fruit and character.

Orin Swift Machete

12 different labels - click here to see the other labels

2012 Orin Swift Machete....$42.99

Concentrated yet light-weight, fragrant and juicy, with aromas of toasted cumin, gingerbread and Earl Grey tea surrounding the core of wild blueberry and huckleberry flavors. The firm tannins stay in the background, allowing this to finish on the juicy side. Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2025.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator

In the glass, deep, dark bluish-red hues can be seen with a band of ruby on the rim. Uplifted aromatics of ripe blackberries, mulled raspberries, acacia flowers, toasty oak, and herbal notes hit the nose in a pronounced way. Offering up robust flavors during the approach, the mid palate is exposed to an unadulterated array of crushed berries, dark chocolate, black fruits, and a tinge of creamy espresso. Finishing with principle, the glossy tannins are in alignment for immediate enjoyment or some time in the cellar too.
Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Grenache

Ommegang is back!

Back in stock.

Ommegang Cooperstown Ale...$10.99 / 4pk

Baseball and beer. Few things are more ingrained in America's psyche than baseball and beer. The histories of both are laden with traditions and transcendence. Rascals and radicals. Celebration and shared experience. Treasured summertime moments with sun on our faces and a beer in our hands. The timeless game defines our past and guides our future.
Lightly golden-straw hue with a lasting thick, white head. Aromas of sweet malt, floral with slight citrus are followed by delicate herbal notes. Faintly sweet giving way to mellow, lightly floral hop flavor and notes of banana and pears from our signature house yeast. Nicely balanced with a clean herbal-hopped finish makes this an enjoyably, quaffable ale.

Ommegang Fleur de Houblon...$10.99 / 4pk
Nothing is more evocative of summer than the beautiful aroma of flowers, and the favored flowers of brewers are hops. Our brand new summer ale, Fleur de Houblon (Hop Flowers), is brewed to bring the many elements of summer into a refreshing and easy-to-drink Belgian-style ale.

Fleur de Houblon is a rich gold color with distinct floral hops in the aroma that follow through in the taste. Whole-cone Bravo hops are used to impart their earthy, fruity, and floral aromas and flavors. The body and flavor are clean and dry, with pleasing complexity and spicy notes from both primary and secondary fermentation with our unique Ommegang house yeast.

Ommegang Glimmerglass Spring Saison...$10.99 / 4pk
Author James Fenimore Cooper gave the name 'Glimmerglass' to the beautiful body of water that graces Cooperstown. Nestled between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring.
Deep straw to light amber in color with a thick, pure white head. The saison yeast strain gives off fruity aromas of pear, apple and slight citrus balanced with a delicate floral hop character and a touch of spiciness. Taste is very clean, with pronounced fruit flavors, delicate bready malt followed by welcomed spicing. Crisp finish with lingering yet subtle notes of yeast and touches of fruity pepper.
5.4% ABV

Ommegang Rare VOS...$10.99 / 4pk
Rare Vos is flemmish for "Sly Fox," and the name of one of Brussels’ great cafes. It has a sweetly fruity malt character and yeasty spiciness. A fine dose of yeast permits the beer to mature and mellow in the bottle.

Brasserie La Goutte D'Or

New and small brewery in Paris.  Not many reviews yet on RateBeer.

Brasserie La Goutte D'Or Chabronnier...$9.99 / pint

Amber Ale with delicately smoked malts, floral notes from the hops and a lingering bitterness in the finish.   Take the Charbonniere street from Barbes until the church Saint-Bernard, you will follow without knowing the traces of Gervaise Emile is going to the wedding. What a trip (even if imaginary)!

Brasserie La Goutte D'Or La Mome Saison Orientale...$9.99 / pint


Established in 2012! Thierry Roshe started homebrewing in 2006 (Moved to Paris in 2002), he learned brewing at the “Universite de la Rochelle.” His brewery is located in the heart of the cultural & historically artistic centre of Paris: Montmartre.

Located in the middle of the “Old Arab quartier” the food & spices of which serve as inspiration for his various recipes. Thierry even purchases some of the spices used in the spice store across the street! His brewing philosophy defines the term “Terroir” in a very intriguing way: he brews in the middle of a community the values & customs of which provide the background of his first recipes (very different from the brewing philosophies of craftbreweries that are located in similarly “famous” areas such as Brooklyn Brewery, Six Point Brewing and others).

The brewery was named after the street it is located on: La Goutte d’Or. Following that trend, the names of his brews come from street names in the “Montmartre” area. It does not reflect the “new way of French brewing” reflects the multicultural values of the most famous area of Paris.

New Schlafly Alcoholic Ginger Beer

Schlafly new Alcoholic Ginger Beer
In stock now!

Schlafly Lewis Osterweis & Sons Hard Ginger Beer...$8.99 / 6pk
Lewis Osterweis Hard Ginger Beer is a wheat beer with a ginger bite. The body is lighter than a normal wheat beer, but the sweetness plays well with the tartness and spicy snap of the ginger. 

Jameson Black Barrel Select Reserve

In stock now!

Jameson Black Barrel Select Reserve...$29.99 / 750ml
It may have taken 232 years to get here, but we’re sure you’ll agree this spirit was worth the wait. It all began when our masters carefully selected a high proportion of Irish pot still whiskey and a rare small batch grain whiskey, and left it to mature in flame-charred bourbon barrels. As the whiskey matured, it developed aromatic notes of charred wood, deep spices and exotic fruit to create the unmistakable rich and smooth Jameson Black Barrel taste.
Tasting Characteristics
Nose: Rich and full, developing into the succulent sweetness of exotic fruits like nectarines, apricot and papaya.
Taste: A burst of flavours combines to produce a creamy, luscious taste experience. The special fruity sweetness from the grain remains consistent, while the waves of vanilla, toasted wood and spices roll through from the pot still whiskey and flame charred barrels.
Finish: An incredibly long finish with fruit and wood spices lingering in perfect proportion, delivering an extremely rich and smooth taste experience.

Bonny Doon Pear Apple Quince Hard Cider

Bonny Doon Querry? Pear/Apple/Quince Cider...$10.99 / 750ml
6.9% ABV
¿Querry? A Getrunkenexperiment.

Query: What might a blend of apple, pear, and quince taste like naturally fermented (with indigenous yeast)? Result (not surprisingly): The ethereal suggestion of pineapple quince; the pungent, heady, dusky perfume of pear; and the earthy succulence of apple. I never thought I'd see... a pome as lovely as Querry. Crisp in acidity and bone dry, Querry is the perfect accompaniment to, well, essentially everything. It is composed of virtually everything, but most significantly: 58% pear, 33% apple, and 9% quince.

Excellent with charcuterie, Asian food, seafood, and poultry—fare as humble as meat pie or as elegant as lobster. Querry pears with everything. Open very carefully, as contents are under some pressure.

Label Notes:
The label was designed by Chuck House, based on a free-hand drawing by Randall Grahm, who, while sitting at the table with Chuck, attempted to show him more or less how he was thinking about the label design. The cider is shipped with two variant labels - a white and a black background - with the theoretical outcome of receiving any combination of the two.

Birra Del Borgo

Del borgo Rubus Con Lamponi Sour Ale with Raspberries...$7.99 / 11.2oz
Rated 95/100 RateBeer
Rated 99/100 RateBeer in its style

Malts Pilsner Malt, Caramalt, Wheat malt
Hops Hallertauer Northern Brewer, Hersbrucker, Saaz
Fruits wild raspberries from Alto Adige area, Italy

Del Borgo ReAle Extra IPA...$16.99 / 750ml
Rated 98/100 RateBeer
An Italian IPA. All hops are added during the last 10 minutes of the boil. The result is an explosion of perfumes, in a range from citrusy (grapefruit, bitter orange, mandarin) to resiny. Caramel and honey flavors balance on the tongue. The mouth feel is dry, with immediate bitterness; it then finishes with a beautiful, persistent tangerine note.
20 days of primary fermentation.
Unpasteurized, unfiltered, bottle-conditioned.
Malts: pilsner, munich, crystal, and dark wheat.
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Styrian Golding

NEW - Barley Friska

Barley Briska Biere Blanche...$18.99 / 750ml
Notes from Lorenzo Dabove: "What's a "biere blanche"? It's a traditional Flemish specialty brewed using malt, unmalted wheat spiced with coriander and orange peels Cloudy light yellow "Friska" is an original interpretaion of the style by young Sardinian brewer Nicola Perra who wished to personalize his beer (unmalted barley and malted wheat are used as well) giving it more body than usual.

The result is a wisely balanced beer, fresh in the nose with spicy and citrus fruit notes, rich of sensual scent of tropical fruit but at the same time full and important in the palate with appropriate acidulated and citric notes making it a highly refreshing and thirst-quenching beer.

Perfect as aperitif, it can match very well with a gingered "risotto", it can harmoniously marry with boiled fish and mayonnaise, it can be intrigant with a seafood salad, elegant with battered vegetables and nally gorgeous with fresh soft cheeses spiced with "fines herbes"

World's Best Black IPA

Thornbridge Wild Raven Black IPA...$7.99 / pint
Rated 98/100 RateBeer
Raven is a massively hopped Black IPA. It pours black as night, has a beautiful intense aroma of pine and sweet roasted malt , citrus and blackcurrants. Flavours are a complex combination of bitter chocolate with pineapple and orange preceding a long bitter finish.
It has an aggressive bitterness that works perfectly with a medium malt body. This beer is a pleasure from the first aroma hit until the end of the pint and definitely make you want to come back for more.

World's Best Black IPA 2013 World Beer Awards
Lemon balm, citrus and dark malts on the nose. Big hop hit to start. Appetising. Lots of coffee and more hops flavours. Filling and fulsome. Smooth, lingering, spicy finish.

Some new Mead from Dansk!

Dansk Mjod 
"This artisan metheglin style Danish mead has hibiscus, which gives its soft, citruslike flavour and very floral aroma. Its finish is hoppy-dry, spicey, and very warming
Mead is probably the oldest known alcoholic beverage in the world. From Europe to Australia mead has been a popular drink, dating back to long before Viking Times. One of the earliest references to mead can be found in the Hindu's of India's holy books, the Veda books, which date back 4000 years and possibly even earlier than that.The oldest known recipe for mead to be written down in the Nordic countries was in 1520 by the Archbishop Olaus Magnus. The recipe comprised of water, honey, hops and brewers yeast, and concludes, that "on the eight day - or earlier in emergencies - the mead may be drunk, but the longer it is left, the purer, better and healthier it will be."Our products are brewed based on a recipe from about year 1700, and the ingredients are pure and 100 pct. natural - guaranteed free from additives of any kind. Honey is the major and most important item in the recipe." -- importer

De Dolle Dulle Teve "Mad Bitch"...$5.49 / 11.2oz 
Dulle Teve means Mad Bitch, but the US government does not like the name, so we said TRIPEL.  Is is an all malt brew with white candy in the kettle and refermented. Alc 10 %. Is not meant for aging. Although some beerlover do it, with good comments. Aging means decreasing of bitterness and should happen in a cold and dark room.

De Dolle Boskeun...$5.49 / 11.2oz
Rated 98/100 RateBeer
Boskeun is the nickname of Jo, one of the two brothers who preferred to brew blond beer at home. It is a special Easter beer, one of the first real Belgian Easter beers. (Slaghmuylder's paasbier being first). It has been brewed with pale malt, Golding hops, cane sugar and refermented in the bottle.  The name Boskeun means rabbit of the wood (virgin wood, maybe?) and the label shows it, sampling the last brew.

De Dolle Special Extra Export Stout...$5.49 / 11.2oz
Rated 98/100 RateBeer
Stout is an old-fashioned beer, but still popular in English speaking countries. Upon request by the American importer, we brew Stout a couple of times a year, with roasted malt, caramel malt and pale malt, Nugget hops and the same fermentation as Oerbier. The combination of all that is a bitter, tart beer, with character. It could have been drunk in England or Ireland some 200 years ago. Cheers!

This is one of the top rated and one of the few "Highly Recommended" Lump Charcoals by the Naked Whiz's Lump Charcoal Database

"The charcoal is quite easy light, taking 3 sheets in our chimney starter test. This is low compared to other charcoals. There was very little sparking and no popping while the charcoal burned in the chimney starter. The smoke had the classic smell of American hardwood charcoal.

In our maximum temperature test, the charcoal burned at 980 degrees which ranks very high compared to other charcoals. The fire spreads quickly and there was very little sparking and no popping while the charcoal was burning full tilt. When using a MAPP torch to start the charcoal, we did observer moderate sparking AND popping, so you should exercise care in using a torch to start this charcoal.

Finally, in our burn time test, Dragon Breath burned a very long time ranking Very High compared to other charcoals. In fact, it is one of the longest burning charcoals we've encountered. The ash production was Low compared to other charcoals.

In conclusion, we were very impressed with this charcoal. It is easy to light, has that great American hardwood smell, burns hot, burns long, and produces a low amount of ash.
