The Wines!!

Michelet Chablis 2015
Chablis is famous for crisp, unoaked, mineral-tinged Chardonnays in northern Burgundy.  Michelet's Chablis is powerfully aromatic with white flowers, fresh fruit, lime, and citrus aromas.  It is a wonderful accompaniment to shellfish, oysters, fish, veal, and foie gras. 

Rated one of the Year's Best White Burgundies by Wine & Spirits Magazine.

Alain de la Treille, Le Rose' 2017
This dry Rosé is a blend of 40% Gamay, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Pinot Noir. It is very aromatic with tons of fresh strawberry and watermelon type of flavors. The fruitiness is very elegant and the finish is nice and balanced.

Rubus Proprietary Reserve Red 2016
Rubus Proprietary Reserve Red is produced in Calatayud, Spain. It is a blend of 90% Garnacha and 10% Syrah.  This blend of red varieties combines to produce a flavorsome wine rich in blackberry and plum fruits. Aromas of subtle spices, berry and fruitcake.

Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2016
This blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault offers a bouquet of aromas offer fresh berries (wild raspberry, blackcurrant, blackberry) and hints of spices. The palate is big and full-flavored, with silky-smooth tannins and red and black fruit flavors. The finish introduces touches of liquorice and pepper.

Alain Jaume Lirac Roquedon 2015
Hints of violets and smoky minerals abound in this easy-drinking yet stylish red. Ripe black-cherry and plum flavors are voluptuous and weighty on the palate but brightened by fresh acidity. The finish is firm and upright, grounded by persistent, fine-grained tannins.

The Beers!!

Commonwealth Aureole Pilsner 4 pack $14.99
5.4% · Pilsner · 35 IBU · 
As adaptable as it is uncommon, this pale malt is anything but conventional. Pale malt from the finest Maltster in Belgium unites with classic hops from Czech and Styria to transcend tradition in the most delicious way possible.
PS - Footed Pilsner: A small, almost straight-sided glass sits on an inch-long stem and foot. The basic footed pilsner has a slightly bulbous bottom and narrower mouth, which makes it better for drinking than for smelling, and places the most emphasis on the appearance.

Evil Twin "Even While They Teach" IPA 4 pack $18.99

7% ABV NE Style IPA
Erase and Rewind#23

Great Lakes Blackout Stout 4 pack $12.99
Bold and dark as a power-less metropolis, our Russian Imperial Stout commemorates the infamous 2003 blackout that briefly left some 55 million people utterly unplugged.
The bold flavors of our Imperial Stout will light up even the darkest nights and result in old-fashioned neighborhood porch parties and fun.
