Thee Beers!!
Tucher Helles FestBier, Bavaria, 4 pack
16 oz. $9.99
ABV: 5.8%
To many, the festbiers of Bavaria are a liquid voyage to the tents of Oktoberfest. For Tucher, nestled in its home in northern Bavaria and out of reach of the festivals that overtake Munich’s fairgrounds each fall, the focus is on Fruhlingsfest and celebrating the end of the cold winter months. As such, this festbier is brewed as a fuller-bodied helles lager with a slightly louder presence of old world hops instead of a marzen and is available to festivals year-round! 

One Family Brewing "The Fallen" West Coast IPA, 4 pack 16 oz. $14.99
ABV: 6%
West Coast style IPA with a pleasant bitterness, intense citrus and tropical flavors from the combination of Amarillo,Centennial, Azacca and Columbus hops. Flavors of Pineapple, Orange and lilac on a warm sunny day. The label has the names of over 60 fallen heroes that have given their lives for our country and our freedom/ Proceeds being dedicated to the building of the first Gold Star Memorial in Northern Virginia in honor our fallen military heroes.  

Shipyard "PumpkinHead" 6 pack 12 oz. $14.99
ABV: 4.5%
Pumpkinhead is a crisp, refreshing wheat ale with delightful aromatics and subtle spice flavor. To celebrate the fall season, the pumpkin flavor is enhanced with a proprietary blend of spices including cinnamon and nutmeg. A proper pint of Pumpkinhead is served in a pint glass rimmed with sugar and cinnamon and of accompanied by a shot of spiced rum or vanilla vodka. 

The Wines!!
Eric Garcia Siema Imports
Kaltern Pinot Grigio $14.99

This Pinot Grigio is a full-bodied white wine with a straw-yellow hue, a floral nose,
and pleasantly smooth character.
With a little aging, undertones of nuts and honey develop.
This wine pairs perfectly with mushroom dishes, fish and seafood.
We also recommend it as an aperitif.

Casale Del Giglio Satrico $16.99
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Trebbiano. Fresh & Zesty.
A bright straw-yellow, this elegant blend reveals a fruity, lightly aromatic yet mineral nose, confirmed on the palate by a pleasing crispness and a lengthy finish.

Dolcetto "Fosco" Diano D'Alba, Salvano $18.99
Fosco comes in beautiful packaging complete with a big red wax seal on the front of the bottle.
The wine shows rich concentration and aromas of red fruit and a touch of natural rubber or tar. In the mouth,
it shows tart, crisp and simple characteristics.

Bosco Montepulciano D'Abruzzo "Pan" $21.99
It was in the late 1800s that the Bosco family came to viticultural prominence in Abruzzo, near to the city of Pescara.  Today they have a state-of-the-art winemaking facility in Nocciano and a reputation for making some of the best wines in the DOC.  This bottling is 100% Montepulciano aged 18-24 months in small barriques.  The influence of wood brought the god of wood, Pan, to  mind (the family surname, “bosco’ = “woods in Italian, hence the name). 
Dark red fruit notes, with plum, chocolate and a touch of peppery spice.
Ideal with summer grills and pastas, in cooler weather, with roasts and stews.

Barachi "O'Lillo" $24.99
Ruby red colour with violet hints. Fruity nose of cherry and blackcurrant. Pleasant and light notes of black pepper, tobacco and forest floor. Easy to drink, fresh, full body and soft tannins. Fruity aftertaste.
Blend: 25% Sangiovese, 25% Syrah, 25% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim JS90 James Suckling
"Lots of lemon curd and sliced cooked apple on the nose,
following through to a full body with a creamy texture and a fresh finish."
