Steininger Kamptal Gruner Veltliner $16.99

92 points, Wine Enthusiast 
“Lifted, pear-scented freshness dominates the nose while the palate is soft but has a pleasing and linear citrus focus. This is poised and offers sophisticated refreshment.”  Anne Krebiehl, MW
This is an excellent example of a typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner. A dry (yes dry…don’t let the bottle fool you!)  and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon showing off trademarks of flinty mineral, citrus and tropical fruit. The spice of white pepper and ripe acidity underlines all this. 
A perfect every day white wine.     

Anton Bauer Rose' $14.99

 Zweigelt/Merlot/Syrah 2017 (Alc. 12%, RS 4.5g/l, AC 5.5 g/l)
 Clear, light pink with a stimulating fragrant floral and berry nose. The wine has an elegant structure. It is round and soft on the palate with a clean, crisp and dry finish. A marvelous patio wine for long summer evenings searching for an invitation to dinner.

Anton Bauer Wagram Pinot Noir $24.99
This Pinot Noir shows a precise balance between the fruit and acidity that makes it fresh and lively. It has a typical Pinot Noir nose with strawberries, raspberries and floral notes such as violets. On the palate the wine is well balanced, elegant and it has a long finish tasting of red berries. An all-purpose red, easy to drink and it pairs with many different dishes from fish and vegetables to lighter meat dishes and spicy food. 
Hillinger Blaufrankisch $17.99

Alc. 13% acidity 4.6 g/l residual sugar 6.2g/l
The Wine Enthusiast 89pts.

Slick and polished, handsome and sexy, dashing with a firm body. Former super model turned winemaker, Leo Hillinger, created this blend to make an easy, soft, drinkable, red with dark fruit. A light oak barrel touch and eloquent tannins, this red speaks of drinkability with plush texture and friendly flavors into the finish. 

The Beers!!

3 Stars Grapefruit Ghost IPA 4 pack $13.99
White IPA  ABV     5.9%
Pilsner & White Wheat and Caramel 30
Amarillo, Simcoe, Citra Columbus
Bright, light, citrusy and crisp with a lingering hop bitterness.
Food Pairing
Works well with roasted meats and root vegetables. Also pairs nicely with grilled or smoked fish and spicy cuisines.

Commonwealth Whakatu IPA 4 pack $19.99

7.5% ABV 4.1 BeerAdvocate
Another absurdly great New England style IPA from Commonwealth. Might be time to start throwing around the term world-class for this brewery.

Oliver Brewing Long Live Rock & Roll 4 pack $15.99

5% ABV
We’ve been talking about getting this one nailed down for a while now, I’m psyched that it’s finally happening. We’re brewing 60bbls over the course of 2 days. As always, this series of 9% abv Double IPAs is an excuse to play around with some hop combinations that we haven’t used before. A firm malt base (English Maris Otter and German 2 row pale malts with a splash of crystal malt and malted wheat) lays the foundation for an assertive, but not overwhelming bitterness, courtesy of Southern Cross and Columbus. We’ll be dry hopping with 3 different varieties for a final hopping rate of around 2 1/2 lbs/bbl. El Dorado will be the main dry hop for this bad boy (tropical fruit – pear/watermelon/stone fruit) supported by Hallertau Blanc (passion fruit/grapefruit/pineapple) and Idaho 7 (apricot/orange/papaya).
