The Beers!!
Ayinger Bavarian Pils 4 pack 12 oz. $15.99

The glimmering, light-yellow Ayinger Bairisch Pils has the fragrance of aromatic hops from the “Hallertau” region of Bavaria (only these are used in the Ayinger beer specialties!). The beer is highly fermented and therefore smooth on the initial taste sensation, but also mild and sparkling in body. Our pils is accentuated by the floweriness of the hops aroma and has a more pronounced bitterness on swallowing,
which quickly fades from the taste buds.

Commonwealth Double IPA 4 pack 16 oz. $19.99
ABV = 7%
Mosaic Wheat India Pale Ale is all the things you love about the enigmatic Mosaic hop woven effortlessly in a bright, smooth package with low finishing bitterness. 

Commonwealth Marvolo Imperial Chocolate Stout 4 pack 16 oz. $19.99
8.7% ABV
Pouring pitch black with a fine, tan head, Marvolo has a smooth body with fine carbonation. Flavors of sorghum molasses and cocoa combine to give this stout its namesake chocolatey-ness. There’s just enough bitterness from the black malt to keep this otherwise sweet beer from being cloying. Sip this at the very end of the day when the air begins to cool, but be careful — it’s so smooth that you might overdo it!  This strong and sweet stout makes a wonderful dessert.  

The Wines from Jon Peters, Well-Crafted!!
Remhoogte Chenin Blanc $13.99

Chenin Blanc in its most classic form in the Loire Valley is full of floral and honeyed aromas and quince and apple-like flavours with good zippy acidity. When cool-fermented as in so many instances in South Africa, it can be quite peardroppy, becoming more peachy in fuller dry whites.

Remhoogte "Honey Bunch" Chenin Blanc $24.99
Only the exposed bunches on the morning sun side of Remhoogte’s 35-year-old Chenin Blanc vineyard are selected for this wine. The grapes turn gold in color as a result of this exposure, giving the wine a unique honeyed character. Honeysuckle aromas lead into rich flavors of pineapple, apricot, and passionfruit. The long finish offers notes of sea salt and spices. 

Since 1994, Remhoogte has been crafting premium wines in the esteemed Stellenbosch region of South Africa. With a similar climate and soil to Bordeaux, the region produces exceptionally complex wines. Remhoogte Wine Estate produces amazing small-batch values from some of South Africa’s best grapes. The estate focuses on minimal intervention, allowing the terroir and the grapes to tell their own story. All of Remhoogte’s wines are made using sustainable practices and are unfined and unfiltered (i.e., vegan!).

Thelema Mountain Red $15.99
This wine shows inviting aromas of juicy black fruit, mulberries, plums and hints of warm spice.
After spending 18 months in barrel, the palate is soft and juicy with well rounded tannins and a long, delicious finish.

Pairing - Particularly good with light and medium flavoured meals, such as pizza and BBQ.

Sutherland Syrah $19.99
Full bodied with inviting aromas of black berries, plums and savoury spice, with great texture on the palate and a long, juicy finish.
Pairing - The spicy character of this wine lends itself to stews and grilled beef.

Remhoogte Pinotage $20.99
Today Pinotage is a popular South African export both as a single varietal wine and in Cape blends. It is grown very minimally outside of South Africa. In the Glass.  There is no mistaking the smell of Pinotage—common descriptors include tobacco, smoke, tar, bacon, licorice, hoisin sauce and dark fruits of plum and blackberry.
