Tynt Meadow English Trappist Ale...$5.99 / 11.2oz bottle

7.4% ABV

The Beer:  Trappist beers tend to be named after the place in which the monastery is situated. We’ve called ours ‘Tynt Meadow’, to honour the link with the plot of land on which monastic life was refounded here in the Midlands almost two centuries ago. Being part of the great Trappist tradition, we’ve chosen to produce a strong dark ale, but one with a clearly English character.

Boulevard Smooth Collider Smoothie Sour...$13.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Smoothie Sour with strawberry, banana and vanilla flavors

Modern scientific and technological advances have brought the tasty fruit emulsion through the atomic age to today. Smooth Collider is the smoothie of the future, with massive banana and tart strawberry aroma leading the way to a full-bodied explosion of fruit flavors.

2020 La Croix Gratiot Picpoul de Pinet....$13.99
For a grape variety that can sometimes be aggressive, this is an beautifully balanced Picpoul. The nose is perfumed with floral, and tropical fruit notes. In the mouth the wine is full of stone fruit, melon, and fruit cocktail notes. The soft fruit is tempered with an intense minerality, and citrus notes. Picpoul de Pinet has always been a textbook match for oysters, mussels, and just about any other type of shellfish you can imagine.
About Picpoul de Pinet: Known as the “Chablis of the South”, the wines of Picpoul de Pinet are crisp, bright and refreshing. The name Picpoul, literally translates as “Lip Stinger”, referring to the grape’s naturally bright acidity. A line of hills protects the appellation of Picpoul de Pinet from the northwestern winds, while the coastal winds from the Mediterranean temper the summer heat. The appellation includes six communes: Mèze, Montagnac, Pinet, Florensac, Pomérols, and Castelnau-de Guers.
