The Beers!!
Alewerks Bitter Valentine Ale 4 pack 16 oz. $16.99
  9% ABV
Pours a Copper hue. Hoppy aromas of citrusy tangerine, grapefruit and pineapple.
Flavors carry the tropical citrus theme amidst notes of bitterness throughout.
Finishes with herbal, resiny bitterness and fruit.  Very nice!

Ocelot Lovers and Dreamers IPA 4 pack 16 oz. $18.99
This is a hazy IPA that Beer lovers dream about!
All of the flavor that you could hope for in an IPA
with a short, but sharp bitterness that definitely leaves me wanting MORE!!!

Adroit Theory Coven Imperial Stout 4 pack 16 oz. $ 23.99

14% ABV
Coven, our decidedly delicious + devilish stout, is getting the royal treatment - conditioned on a bed of cacao nibs, toasted coconut, TONS of Oreos, and blended with bourbon barrel aged maple syrup. The final product is as decadent and rich as it is desirable; the perfect way to end your night.  

Klaus' Wines!!
Paul Direder Frizzante' Rose'  $13.99
The perfect aperitif!
This fine sparkling Frizzante, with its strawberry and slight honey smell,
purely delivers on the palate, what was promised in the nose. Dry but still berry – simply - enjoyable!
Frizzante describes the level of effervescence (i.e., the strength of the bubbles) in a bottle of sparkling
wine. Wines labeled ‘frizzante’ are what we call gently sparkling.
Frizzante wines have between 2.5 and 3.5 bars of atmosphere/pressure.
Prosecco is probaly the most well-known wine in this style. 

Hillinger Pinot Gris $12.99
Medium straw-yellow color with pink hue.
Aromas of ripe fruit such as quince and mango with hints of walnut.
On the palate, the Pinot Gris is smooth and full-bodied with a nice middle palate,
rounded off with a fine spicy and long finish.

Steininger Kamptal Gruner Veltliner D.A.C. $17.99
This is an excellent example of a typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner.
A dry 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.

Steindorfer Apetlon Rouge $19.99
The father/son team of Ernst and Roland Steindorfer craft this wine from their nicely ripe Burgenland plots of Blaufränkisch (40%), St. Laurent and Zweigelt (30% each).  Aging for 17 months in 2nd and 3rd use French oak barriques pulls the wine together nicely. In balanced 2019 vintage, this has plenty of ripe cherry and black plum fruit, with a really satisfying sense of weight on the palate and a firm – but still smooth – finish that invites both solo sipping and matching up with all kinds of cookout fare.
Ready now and giving pleasure for 4-5 years to come.

Hillinger "Leithaberg" Blaufrankisch $34.99
The exquisite freshness of tart, red cherry mingles with the perfume of cinnamon-sprinkled blueberries.
The palate then presents wonderfully ripe but tart fruits of the forest,
again with that lovely cinnamon inflection.
The body is sinuous, slender but firm. The finish is gloriously spicy.
One of our favorite "BIG" wines!
Great with Prime Rib (Horseradish sauce) or a Ribeye Steak (Bearnaise on the side)
