The Wines!!
Gainey Ranch Sauvignon Blanc $15.99
Produced entirely from grapes we cultivate at our Home Ranch in eastern Santa Ynez Valley, our Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc boasts bright citrus, honeydew melon, mineral and subtle herb aromas. On the palate, the wine is rich, mouthwatering and beautifully structured, with vibrant grapefruit, melon and guava flavors culminating in a long, crisp finish invigorated by zesty citrus, spice and mineral tones. Delicious now with a broad range of seafood, poultry and salad dishes, it will develop further nuance with another 1-2 years of bottle age.

Two Arrowheads White, Paso Robles $18.99

a luscious blend of Viognier and Roussanne from the calcareous soils of Paso Robles. Made with grapes grown in the warm California sun and cooled by mild breezes from the Pacific Ocean, TWO ARROWHEADS is fermented partially in oak and finished in stainless steel. This is a round and aromatic wine, offering a beautiful perfume of white peaches, guava, orange blossom, and nutmeg followed by flavors of passionfruit, melon.

Chateau D'Aqueria Tavel Rose' $22.99
92 POINTS Wine Advocate 2017 vintage
DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL International Rose Drink Pink Wine Competition 2017 vintage

Grapes of exceptional quality from a noble terroir allow Château d’Aquéria to craft a quintessential Tavel, widely appreciated as the finest wine of its appellation. Grapes are handpicked from Château d’Aquéria’s own vineyards, which span 163 acres across the sandy slopes of Tavel. The mesoclimate is ideal for cultivating Grenache and crafting crisp, fresh rosé wines. Using its cutting-edge weather station located in the heart of the vineyards, Château d’Aquéria precisely monitors weather conditions and adjusts vineyard practices accordingly. The grapes are hand harvested and destemmed, followed by a maceration to extract color. The grapes are then pressed and each variety is vinified separately, undergoing temperature-controlled maceration and fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wines see no malolactic fermentation and no oak contact. The winemaker assembles an initial blend in November and then a second blending takes place in January before bottling.

Lander-Jenkins Pinot Noir $14.99
The 2016 harvest gave us fruit of exceptional quality for our California Pinot Noir. The growing season began early, with ideal temperatures that developed fruit with excellent concentration and delicious complexity. This 2016 Pinot Noir shows beautifully with balanced acidity and elegant, wild berry flavors.

Trim Cabernet Sauvignon $14.99
TRIM is a well-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from outstanding vineyards in California. Our winemaking team works with some of the best vineyards to produce a lush, well balanced, and fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the best valued wine on the market.

The Beers!!

Commonwealth "Ojo del Tigre" Amber Lager 4 pack $14.99
5.3 ABV 23 IBU
A sleek, sublime maroon-hued Mexican style cerveza made with flaked maize, carefully selected German malts, the best noble hops and cold fermented with our house lager strain. Exceptionally smooth, clean and full bodied but still supremely sessional. Enjoy by itself or garnish with a lime for an instant trip to the beach.

Offshoot "Relax" IPA 4 pack $15.99

6.8 ABV, 4.02 Beer Advocate
?Relax [it’s just a hazy IPA] embraces the new way to enjoy IPA - unfiltered, fresh and full of hop flavor and aromatics... without the bitterness to stand in the way of kicking back with a juicy beer. It features a combination of Citra, Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo hops, imparting fruity, tropical and citrusy notes to complement the round, soft mouthfeel of a hazy IPA.

Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break Stout 16oz. $9.99

11.5 ABV
?"pours an opaque, nearly black mahogany color with a one-finger, mocha colored head and lacing. It is a very attractive pour. It smells of dark chocolate, caramel, almond, and a distinct alcohol. It has a really interesting flavor. Dark roasted coffee, caramel, nuts, roasted malt, and what tastes to me like cherry at the finish. There is also a very subtle hoppy bitterness. This porter is quite thick and chewy, and only lightly carbonated. Although I can taste the alcohol, there is little burn and it is surprisingly drinkable for 11.5% ABV. In fact, you have to be careful. This one really sneaks up on you. Overall, this is a first-rate porter: big, with lots of tastes that blend together very well."
