Mead Appreciation Day

Winter is coming… which means it’s mead season! We’ve brought in a whole new line-up of spectacular meads from around the world and we’ll be pouring them all night. This oft-maligned beverage (re: that Bud ad where the king executes the man who brought him mead) deserves a more prominent place at the table and respect for how diverse and exciting the drink can really be. We’ll have open a reserve bottle from 2004, an ancestral-style mead from South Africa aged in oak, Nordic mead, and the whole line-up from House Bear in Amesbury MA so you know it’s gonna be sick.

Bogedal and Alvinne Vintage Beer Tasting

Just got our hands on some beautiful old bottles from the great Bogedal and Alvinne and we're gonna open that shit up for y'all! Bogedal is Denmark's smallest brewery, producing only 3000 cases of beer per year from floor malted heritage grain their work themselves. Their beers have become some our all time favorites for their age-worthiness and deep complexity. Alvinne is one of Belgium's most interesting breweries, producing experimental beers from their house native yeast strain which they call Morpheus. All of their beers are built to last and show immense complexity. If you're a fan of massive barrel aged, old beers then you'll want to be here for this.

Island Wine Tasting!

Island Wine Tasting!

We're saying adiós, a biatu and a si bìri to summer heat with a selection of some of our favorite Island Wines from the Canary Islands, Sicily, and Sardinia. We'd like to believe that this crazy thing called terroir that you hear all those wine people going on about is the most fun when its island terroir because that's when you can taste things like rocks and sea shore and all those other descriptive terms that are also appropriate for island flora and fauna, and they really are just that cool.  Friday is looking like a pitch-perfect mid 70 degree day, so get your Island wines on with us from 5-7.

Featured Wines:

Raica Bianco

  • 100% Vermentino that is grown in the Colli del Limbara (surrounding the highest peak of Gallura at 1326 meters) in a northeast-exposed vineyard at 550 meters. Cinzia and Eugenio describe this wine as “later harvested,” giving 10% of the mass contact with the skins for 14 days to impart a touch of color. This bianco sees two months in used barrique before transitioning to stainless steel vats until bottling in June/July. Look for a fuller body with notes of ripe apricot, yellow apple, acacia, and thyme with a saline/mineral finish. Very low in sulfur.

Frank Cornelissen.Susucaru Rosato

  • This rosé is produced with the same philosophy and vinification techniques as all Cornelissen wines: full skin-contact for texture and territorial identity, malolactic fermentation fully finished and no SO2 added. Not only a refreshing summer wine from a blend of Malvasia, Moscadella, Insolia and Nerello Mascalese, as this is a “rose” which can also be regarded as a light red, like a “Jura” wine, pairing well with a wide variety of dishes.

Los Bermejos Listan Negro

  • 100% Listán Negro aged 5 months in French oak from the Allier forest. The more structured and concentrated sibling of the more fruit-forward, easy-going Maceracion Carbonica Listán Negro cuvée. From the volcanic island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.

Cantina Lilliu Dicciosu

  • One of the most impressive Cannonau's (or Grenache for that matter) that you will find. Pietro Lilliu attributes the success of this wine to the health and perfect balance present in his vineyard.

    The formula is simple: natural fermentation followed by stainless steel aging.

    The wine tastes of fresh red fruits, chocolate and has herbal notes. Great balance and depth while still remaining lean. This is not the overbearing Cannonau that is so often found from over-oaking.
