Autumn New Arrivals

Fall is a season that has the word "beer" written all over it. Cool nights unleash the craving for hearty beers, whose colors mirror those of the turning leaves. Fall brews are more flavorful and more substantial than summer's bright quenchers. Colors get deeper and flavors get toastier as the tastes of the harvest table call out for malty partners. It doesn't take much to trade up to luxury in the beer world, so why not live a little? Check out one of these world-class brews next time you're cruising the six-pack aisle. From seasonal specialties to solid stand-bys, innovative American craft brews to international ambassadors of style, autumn's finest offerings await.

Battle Road Farmhouse Ale
A straw-gold rustic ale "on lees" that evokes a time long ago with a robust yeast strain, that likes it hot…a vigorous top-ferm
0enting classic that provides some of the best food pairing flavors on the planet. Of course we love it, and hope you do too. They temper this spicy, fruity yeast profile with pedigreed noble hops; East Kent Goldings for bittering and a generous dose of Hallertau Mittelfruh for aroma. This beer will increase in complexity and dryness over time, providing a bit of insolent freshness up front, and more refined dignity even months after the brew date kept in the right conditions…above all upright and away from light.

Battle Road 1775 ale
Their flagship brand. They use the best quality North American 2-Row barley malt, a bit of high-dried "Munich-style" a toasty "Biscuit" malt and a flavorful caramelized "Munich" malt to round out what is a predominately dry, crisp ale. The hop used is a single varietal, Slovenian-grown Styrian Goldings, added at various rates throughout the boil, including large doses towards the end to insure just a moderate bitterness with a pleasant aroma and flavor for these very fine hops.

Battle Road Lexington IPA
They select a trio of American grown classics and concoct a late kettle-addition-heavy schedule of hop additions to push forward a pronounced aroma of Humulus Lupulus while respecting the beautiful malts they've selected to round out this reddish, brassy golden ale. Dry and crisp, with a clean malt delivery and a burst of hop flavor, and even more aromatics of Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops added from first wort to the last possible moment before fermentation. Go Green!

Bunratty Meade
Honey wine is an ancient beverage made from fermented honey and enjoyed by the peoples of Europe long before the Romans introduced wine from grapes. If you've been to the Bunratty Castle in County Clare, you will recognize this particular Mead as the second Mead served in the Castle's lower quarters, the first Mead being a warm, mulled red Mead that we've yet to find for sale anywhere. Maybe it was the fog, the chilly November air, or the wait to gain entrance to the castle itself, whatever the influence this was by far the very best Mead I've personally had the privilege of trying. The Bunratty white Meade is a tasty treat, and at its best when served slightly chilled, in my opinion.

Sipping Sally's Spanish Red
Sipping Sally's Spanish Red is made from 100% Tempranillo. A full-bodied deep, ruby red wine with aromas of vanilla and herbs. Plums, cherries, and strawberries tantalize the taste. Great with burgers, spicy sausages, tapas, pork, grilled or roasted meats.
Gaga Red Blend
A fun and value-driven California red that delivers sensuous aromas of black plums, fall spices, and dried black figs. The fig theme carries on the palate along with a stewed red fruit flavor, which hails from an abundance of Zinfandel. This is a great option when all you want to do is stay indoors and watch the leaves blow around.

Gaga White Blend
The wine offered crisp acidity, without being grapefruity, and the finish was clean and fresh! Explodes with aromas and flavors of crisp pear and apricot, while notes of honeysuckle linger over a lively texture. Tantalizing all by itself or over dinner with the most promising of company.

Giorgio & Gianni Viva Frizzante
Semi-sparkling wine with fine and generous bubbles, light golden straw color, nose of green apple, great peach taste, sweet, full bodied and well balanced, very refreshing.
Volandera Garnacha
The colour is breath-taking, a luminous violet. One is so eager to taste it that one almost forgets to smell it.

The smart girls grow up and use their brains to make money to buy great clothes and travel abroad and throw dinner parties…where they serve chardonnay that they didn't spend a fortune on…in wine glasses brought home from their last trip to Paris.
