The Wines!
La Cle de la Femme Brut NV $39.99
Clear, light straw yellow with tiny persistent bubbles. Perfectly  balanced, fresh Macintosh apple skin opening up to buttery tarte and gooseberry.  Slight sweetness balanced by clean acidity. Well integrated, ripe fruit (dew melon), almond and delicate orange blossom. Biscuity honey finish with a lingering sweetness yet fresh!

90+ Cellars 
Riesling $13.99
The alcohol is refreshingly low, yet this is no wimpy wine: it"s packed with flavor. A pretty nose of apricots and pear, with a delicious palate showing crisp apple, lemon/lime, pineapple and a touch of honey, and subtle minerality. Very harmonious, off-dry mouthfeel and a velvety-smooth apricot/lemon with a clean finish.

Pinot Noir $17.99
made from berries hand-picked from vines scattered about the lush hills and cool valleys of Sonoma"s Russian River. In this blissful landscape dotted with lofty redwoods between which morning fog slithers, precious grapes are collected and brought to the winery where they are fermented and aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels. This is no ordinary Pinot Noir.
Cabernet Sauvignon $22.99
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot. A beautiful example of Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

Super Cuvee" $29.99
This year"s blend features wine from an incredibly sought-after Napa wineries and one of the best Merlot-producers in the valley. Spirited aromas of black currant and plum with festive glimmers of mint, coffee and cedar. Decisively full bodied with an elegant structure, this wine delivers a mouthful of flavor that keeps going until dawn. 15% ABV

The Beers!
Commonwealth Papi Chulo 4 pack $17.99
"I don’t know the exact blend of hops that have gone into this 6.5% ABV IPA, but I can tell you Papi Chulo carries a wonderful blend of tropical fruit flavors of mango, apricot, light melon, grapefruit and more. The brewery, however, hasn’t forgotten about what makes an IPA an IPA — the bitterness. At 54 IBU, the brew brings a solid hop bite to keep all of that fruitiness in check and reminder you this isn’t a fruit juice you’ve got in your glass. Not only is Papi Chulo and excellent IPA with well-rounded flavors, it also served as an excellent introduction to the Virginia brewery. The beer certainly has that modern, tropical lean to it, but the company hasn’t forgotten to bring the bite to the party. Without that hop bitterness the IPA would still be pretty tasty, but not nearly as refreshing or tasty. I may have originally been on a mission to pick up some malt-forward brews, but am glad I found this tasty IPA, as well."

Union Craft Double Duckpin 6 pack $16.99
"The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a quickly dissipating slim head leaving messy lacing. The smell had a big sweet luscious and sliding fresh grapefruit with a kick of bitter orange peel and fresh lemon scent mixed with a bit of freshly cut grass. Superb! The taste takes that big sweet luscious grapefruit to town and enlivens eloquently and sweetly in a full richly satisfying citrus aftertaste. Sweet sticky finish rounds out the taste. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is there but nothing overbearing. It ends up twisting itself around my tongue bitter yet smooth, sharp but pure. Making me want to gulp but leading me on. "

Commonwealth Clockwork Stout 4 pack $24.99
an Imperial Chocolate Stout made with local coffee beans, oranges, vanilla and lactose;
