These two started it all!
Pinckney Bend Vodka...$23.99
Vodka is often described as a neutral spirit. Character, flavor, purity and texture begin where neutrality ends. Pinckney Bend vodka is hand crafted in small batches from a blend of American wheat, malted barley and rye. Grains are distilled separately; wheat in a column still, barley and rye in a pot still. The result is a spirit of both high purity and unique character.
Pinckney Bend vodka has a luscious mouth-feel, and is exceedingly smooth on the palate. It is excellent on its own, but it also works well with others as a cocktail ingredient.
Serve cold. Very cold.

Pinckney Bend Gin...$25.99

"All gin is not created equal.  The nine botanicals used in Pinckney Bend gin are all grown in the USA.  They are distilled individually, and then blended in small batches.   The result is a premium quality American gin with nuanced layers of flavor and aromatics.  Pinckney Bend gin is exellent on its own in a martini, but it also plays exceptionally well with others as a mixer." -- label

The original and king of cheese - Parmigiano Reggiaon on sale $9.99

We just got in fresh load of 300 pounds!!!

Parmigiano Reggiano....$9.99 per pound
Yes, the original and best Parmesan is on sale.  Still cut fresh to order!!

Parmigiano-Reggiano is produced exclusively in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and parts of the provinces of Mantua and Bologna, on the plains, hills and mountains enclosed between the rivers Po and Reno.
This is the area hosting four thousand farms where the cattle are fed on locally grown forage.  From these deep roots in a protected and respected environment, come the unique qualities, which characterise the “king of cheeses”.  The cheese wheels are laid out in long rows in the silent maturation rooms.  Each cheese has used around 600 litres of milk and the constant care of the farmers and cheese masters.
The experts of the Consortium examine each cheese one by one.  After the Control Body’s inspection, a mark is fire-branded onto the individual cheeses which meet the requirements of the Protected Designation of Origin.  It is then shipped over to us and then home with you!

Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale

Back in stock now, along with the Wells Banana Bread

Well's Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale...$8.99 / 4pk
Created by the Master Brewers behind Banana Bread Beer and Double Chocolate Stout, Wells & Young’s new beer is based on the quintessentially British dessert Sticky Toffee Pudding. The 5% ABV beer is brewed using natural accredited mineral water and the finest ingredients to combine the rich flavours of Sticky Toffee Pudding with traditional ale to create an indulgent beer.

Karl Ottomar, Head Brewer at Wells & Young’s explains: “Our dessert ales have been a huge hit across the world and we wanted to add a new, unique flavour into the mix. Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale was a natural fit, combining a quintessentially British pudding with our brewing expertise to create a rich, smooth beer with all the warmth and aromas of a dessert but without being overly sweet.

“This is very much a beer first and a dessert second, it is brewed with our trusted pale ale malt and a secret blend of complex sugars. The initial sweetness of Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale is tempered by a gentle bitterness from two of England’s most traditional hop varieties- Fuggles and Goldings. This delivers the sweet taste of caramel and toffee along with a smooth and robust aftertaste”.

Smisje Wostyntje Mustard Ale

Back in stock after about 2 years.....

Smisje Wostyntje Mustard Ale....$4.99 / 11.2oz
Kent Goldigs hops is added at the beginning of the boil while Challenger hops, dark candy sugar and the crushed mustard seeds are added after about 50min. into the boil. The addition of light candy sugar and fresh top-fermenting yeast to the bottle starts the secondary fermentation in the bottle. After three more weeks Wostyntje is ready to become part of your dinner.
Wostyntje has a unique bitterish finish, which stems from the use of "Torhout's" mustard seeds.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: A hazy deep orange with short lived head.
Aroma: Spicy nose with notes of fruits such as apples and pears and slight hint of mustard.
Flavor: Sweet fruitiness up front which is later balanced by the slight bitterness from the mustard seeds.
Finish: Unique bitterish finish, resulting from the use of ‚ÄúTorhout‚Äôs‚Äù mustard seeds.

Stone Brewing Collab with Wicked Weed Brewing and Ecliptic

Stone Brewing Collab with Wicked Weed Brewing and Ecliptic

Stone Brewing Points Unknown...$8.49 / 22oz
It seemed no single beer could adequately convey the collective talents of Portland, Oregon brewing legend and Ecliptic Brewing founder John Harris; Luke and Walt Dickinson, the brewmaster duo behind North Carolina’s Wicked Weed Brewing; and Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele. So, this veritable triad of power opted to brew TWO beers. The first was a traditional Belgian-style tripel aged four months in oak barrels that originally housed red wine, then tequila. It was then blended at a one-fourth to three-fourths ratio with a freshly brewed West Coast double IPA to create this beer. A variety of diverse flavors coalesce into something more unique than any one beer our trio could have conceived.

Firestone Walker new beers and new CANS

All canned June 2-3

We received some great new beers (to St. Louis) and also finally received their CANS!!  
Plus DBA in Bottles now!

Firestone Walker Easy Jack Session IPA....$9.99 / 6 pack bottles

Firestone Walker Easy Jack Session IPA....$9.99 / 6 pack CANS
Brewmaster Matt Brynildson went to the mountain and returned with a vision for a different kind of Session IPA, one that would be brewed and dry hopped with a globetrotting selection of new hop varieties from Europe, New Zealand and North America. He foresaw a beer that would deliver massive hop aromas, a signature malt balance and an empty glass before you knew what hit you. And so the newest member of our Jack IPA family was born.

Firestone Walker Pale 31....$9.99 / 6pk Bottles
A tribute to our home state of California – the 31st to be added to the Union. Beautiful floral and citrus hop aromas greet the nose with undertones of lightly toasted malt. Crisp pale and crystal malts offer a hint of sweetness. Subtle hop bitterness offers a refreshing finish. Perfect for a sunny California day at the beach or BBQ with friends, Pale 31 represents the bold yet approachable spirit that embodies our state.

Firestone Walker Pivo Hoppy Pils....$9.99 / 6pk CANS
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

Firestone Walker DBA (Double Barrel Ale)....$9.99 / 6 pack Bottles
2012 great american beer festival gold medal (english/special bitter)
Our flagship brew highlights barrel-fermented batches from our patented Firestone Union blended with beer fermented in stainless steel. It opens with a biscuity toasted malt aroma and a hint of oak and vanilla. Pale malts create a smooth malty middle with ribbons of caramel, English toffee and toasted oak. A tribute to English pales traditionally fermented in cask.

Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA....$10.99 /6 pack CANS and bottles

An aggressively hopped West Coast-style IPA. Union Jack showcases exceptional dry hop character with stunning pineapple, citrus and piney aromas on the nose accompanied by honey-like malt aromatics. Double dry hopping brings bold grapefruit, tangerine and citrus flavors that are contrasted by pale malt sweetness to balance this intense brew. A true tribute to the style that put the West Coast on the craft beer map.

Boulevard Tell Tale Tart

"a slightly sour ale” 
Boulevard Tell Tale Tart....$9.99 / 4pk
Joining our year-round lineup of Smokestack Series four packs, Tell Tale Tart is presented as “a slightly sour ale” that derives pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity from brewhouse souring, a process of lowering the pH during the brewing process. The brewhouse souring method results in a crisp, clean acidity that serves as a contrast to a soft, subtly sweet malt character contributed by our base pale malt and Munich malt.

Once Tell-Tale Tart has completed the bottle conditioning process, we’ll be able to share more specific sensory notes.

Tell-Tale Tart is slated for a June release and will ultimately be available year round in four packs of twelve ounce bottles. Stay tuned for more news!
