Abbaye d'Aulne Triple Blonde (750 ml)

Slightly hazy orange color with a one finger head with medium retention and leaving some laces. Aroma of Belgian yeast, oranges, mint, candied sugar and bread. Spicy flavor with notes of mint, herbal hops, oranges, hay, green apples, pears and finishing with dry white wine. Dry, bitter and spicy aftertaste.

Medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 8% abv is harmonic with the overall beer.

Abbaye d'Aulne Triple Brune (750 ml)

Nice mahogany ruby color. Poured a thick head with good retention. Predominant aroma of red wines and dry fruits. Flavor of grapes, prunes, fig and caramel. Hints of condiments and liquorice. Also has some floral and earthy hops. Alcohol is very present but cosy. Aftertaste is mildly dry and fruity. Full body with low carbonation with an effervescent sensation.

Goose Island IPA

Recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

Sierra Nevada 4-Way IPA Variety 12 pack

This pack of four hop-forward beers stretches the boundaries of India Pale Ale from midnight black color to hazy body and from experimental hops to innovative brewing equipment. Each style is loaded with intense aromas and flavors presented in new ways, underscoring a passionate and progressive take on whole-cone hops.

Unibroue Fin du Monde (750 ml)

Floral bouquet, aromas of honey, spice, coriander, malt, and alcohol. Mildly yeasty with a complex palate of malt, fruit and spice notes followed by a smooth, dry finish. This beer goes down smooth and tastes fantastic. The alcohol is hidden well, but watch out the 9% will sneak up on you after you have had a couple. We recommend it to any beer lover.

  Unibroue Ephemere (750 ml)

White ale brewed with apple. Mouth-watering bouquet of Granny Smith apples, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Delicate balance of fruit and spice, hint of sweetness, hint of tartness, redolent of Granny Smith apples.

 Curious Traveller Shandy

An invigorating lemon shandy concotion. 2-row malted barley and malted wheat. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of lemon candy. Flavor is like a sweet lemon soda.

Sam Adams Porch Rocker

Perfect for any summer day, Samuel Adams Porch Rocker was inspired by traditional Bavarian Radlers that mix beer with German-style lemonade. For their bright and citrusy Radler, they blended a Helles beer with lemon for a fresh-squeezed lemon taste, effervescent sweetness, and slightly tart, refreshing finish. A light malt character and hint of hops balance out this summer brew.

Brooklyn Lager

 Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.

Shiner Bock

Bock reflects the tradition of genuine Bavarian beers as a brew only a craftsman like Kosmos Spoetzl, trained in the "Old Country," could bring to life. With its deep amber color, distinctive rich flavor and full body, Shiner Bock demonstrates the care of a handcrafted brewing process to bring forth a mellow taste free of the bitter aftertaste found in many micro, specialty and imported beers. Just think of it as Shiner smooth.

Shiner Wild Hare Light

Wild Hare is a classic American Pale Ale-richly hopped, fruity and floral. Munich malt nicely balances the assertive character of the U.S. Golding and Bravo hop varieties that give this brew its signature bitterness and aroma. Enjoy!

Shiner Variety 12 pack

Shiner Bock- Every drop of Shiner Beer is brewed in Shiner, Texas, by a handful of local craftsmen who take pride in their classic Shiner Bock. First brewed in 1913, this lightly-hopped, American-style bock has a clean flavor a slightly sweet finish.

Shiner Black Lager- Bohemian was first brewed to commemorate Shiner's 97th anniversary, it remains true to the old-world heritage of the German and Czech immigrants who settled Shiner. Imported Czech Saaz and Styrian hops, and select roasted malts make this "Schwarzbier" their darkest brew yet!

Shiner Blonde- A true golden lager with a golden heritage of natural brewing.

Shiner Hefe- This beer captures old-world Munich Malt, wheat grist used in a scant 1% of all brews worldwide, orange and lemon zest in a frothy classic example of bottle-conditioned beer. Adding clover honey and yeast just before it's bottled touches off a unique, secondary fermentation process inside every keg and bottle before its final release from the brewery.

Shiner Kosmos- A full-flavored, hop-jacked lager that is every bit as unique as the man himself and our way of saluting the brewmaster who started it all. This re-release is an American Pale Lager style beer available only in Shiner Family Packs.

Shiner Brewers Pride- Limited edition brew.

  Pretty Things Meadowlark 22oz bottle

Meadowlark IPA is a new juicy and floral hoppy, hoppy ale we brewed to celebrate the flavor and spirit of American craft brewing.  This 7% alcohol beer has a sunny orange-yellow colour, 85 International Bittering Units, a smooth mouthfeel and layer upon layer of soft flowery hops.  They wove earthy Citra and bitter Bravo hops from the Pacific Northwest with intensely fruity and aromatic Galaxy hops from Australia. The malts are English pale malt & mild ale malt, pale crystal (1.3% of the grist), flaked barley with malty highlights from Munich malt and a bijoux of Roasted Barley.  The resulting patchwork is as “American” tasting as short ribs and slaw, and provides an excellent accompaniment to that kind of food too!  Very hoppy and bitter.  Yum.

  Wormtown Hopulence 22oz bottle

The smell is bright fruity aroma that is a little dank but brings a juicy grapefruit and a touch if passion fruit in the nose. There is a true grassy aroma there in the nose as well giving a strong summertime feel.The taste is grassy and really brings the hops but without the bitterness at first. Juicy grapefruit again is here with some tangy lemon-like flavor that gives a bit of a zing. The grassy flavor comes back with a bitter bite at the end giving a touch of a bitterness that only holds onto you for a moment and then let's go.The feel of this beer is smooth with a nice medium body. A really nice drinkable feel that adds to the good flavor enhances this beer.

Wormtown Be Hoppy 16oz can

Exceptionally floral with a strong citrus presence as well. Notes of lemongrass, too. The malt has a vibrant honey biscuit flavor to it. The aftertaste has a touch of bitterness to accompany the lingering flowery taste. Medium bodied and refreshing.

A great IPA - certainly a New England standout. Makes a great summertime sipper.


Bulleit Bourbon

Bulleit Bourbon is made by following the small-batch technique inspired by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only the highest quality ingredients are used. Bulleit Bourbon's subtlety and complexity stem from its unique blend of rye, corn and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast. Because Bulleit Bourbon is especially high in rye content, it has a bold and spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish.

Kinky Liqueur

Kinky Liqueur is a naughty infusion of super premium vodka distilled 5 times with succulent mango, blood orange liqueur, and passion fruit.

Dr. McGillicuddy Root Beer Schnapps

Authentic root beer nose. The body, very sweet, like a can of A&W, and almost refreshing. Root beer nuts will find this a winner.

Crispy and vibrant on the palate. It is an aromatic white wine with a floreal and fruity aromas of white rose, orange blossom,peach and candied citrus zest. Sunny and bright, it's an ideal wine for an aperitif with friends, and we recommend it for your first date.

90+ Lot 33 Rose

This is a real deal Rose, not that sweet pink stuff. Aromas of ripe strawberries fill the glass accompanied by mild notes of Provencal herbs, white pepper, and cotton candy. Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, and Mourvedre are hand harvested from several vineyards planted on windswept slopes along the foothills of the Cevennes, and then fermented and aged in tanks for seven months. Perfect for picnics and other outdoor festivities.

90+ Lot 26 Barolo

Garnet in color with a divine mixture of aromas that includes cherries, rose petals, cinnamon and hints of leather. The wine is lean but powerful, and dry but supple. The combination of flavor and texture leads to a generously long finish before taking your next sip.

Often called the King of Wines many consider Barolo to be Italy's greatest wine. It is made from grapes grown in vineyards south of Alba, in the Piedmont region of Italy. After a long, slow fermentation the wine is aged for two years in oak and then kept in bottle for another year before release. Although drinkable now, Barolo is one of the longest living wines and can be cellared for decades. We are excited to offer you this prestigious wine at such an approachable price.

90+ Lot 27 Barbera

Complex and concentrated aromas of raspberry, black cherry and stewed tomatoes with hints of toasted hazelnut and chocolate in the background. Barbera is Italy's third most planted red grape and probably its best kept secret. At home in Italy's Piedmont, Barbera was once known as the people's wine because of its versatility and drinkablity. Barbera is the quintessential food wine, capable of enhancing the enjoyment of nearly any meal. So grab a few bottles, call your friends, and gather together for some good company and delicious wine.

90+ Lot 110 Nebbiolo

Exquisitely perfumed aromas of succulent cherry fruit, fresh flowers, and soft spice. Light crimson in color with an astonishingly intense circus of flavor that starts with a dramatic boom of texture and coalesces into a harmonious finale of savoriness. Pour a glass with black truffle and mushroom risotto or filet mignon with a red wine reduction. It's okay if you make a yummy sound now. The Nebbiolo grape likely receives its name from (nebbia), or fog, which occurs frequently on the hills surrounding the town of Alba during the harvest month of October. This one is made from estate fruit picked and sorted by hand, fermented and then aged in Slavonian oak for one year before bottling. It's a captivating red produced by a family winery with a rich legacy of crafting praiseworthy wines.

Las Perdices Cabernet

The color is a beautiful ruby, cherry red. Even the aroma is of cherry. I promise, the color did not suggest that in any way. It is spicy with notes of dried thyme and oregano and fresh cracked peppercorn. Its perfume and bouquet is persistent enough you will have a sip and be hooked. This will be your everyday red. Its texture is soft and supple with balanced flavors of mature red berries, cherries (again) with tertiary aromas of licorice and dried fruits. The eight months of aging in French and American oak have rounded out its fruit tannins and are perfectly balanced throughout the palate. They are just as equally soft and supple. Did we mention, sweet?

 Las Perdices Malbec

This full-flavored malbec comes from one of the best spots for growing Malbec in Argentina, the famous Agrelo sub-region of the Lujan de Cuyo zone of Mendoza.  The reason why this is considered the “sweet spot” for the production of top-level malbec in Argentina is the unique combination of old vines, sandy soils, perfect climate, and remarkable day-night temperature variations that result in amazingly flavorful wines.  Get a case and savor the full-bodied, dry, structured, complex, textured and incredibly intense and concentrated flavors that put this far ahead of most malbecs in it's price range.

 Las Perdices Sauvignon Blanc

Intense passion fruit, mango & pink grapefruit aromas flood the nose with subtle mineral notes. Good attack on the palate, well balanced acidity & a long lasting finish, highlighting tropical fruit notes make this a tasty white wine.

Puerto Infinito Reserve Chardonnay

Clean, fresh, bright, spicy pineapple-grapefruit flavors and a toach of oak. Medium bodies. Serves well with fish and seafood dishes, creamy pasta sauces or roast chicken.

             Puerto Infinito Reserve Malbec

Dried plum, blackberry, spicy, pleasant finish with ripe tannins. An excellent wine to pair with a range of foods from steak, pasta and pizza.

Vina Chocalan Inspira Sauvignon Blanc

The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards located on the hillsides of the Melipilla area, in the Maipo Valley of Chile. They are planted on granitic, well drained soils. 2013 will be remembered as one of the coolest vintages for Chile in the past decade. A slow, cool growing season made for elegant, aromatic wines with lower alcohol levels and fresh acidity. Light yellow colour. This Sauvignon Blanc shows lemongrass and citrus notes and a touch of herbal aromas. High acidity on the palate with fresh lemon flavours. Dry finish with lingering lime and grapefruit notes.

Noble Vines 446 Chardonnay

446 Chardonnay exhibits appealing aromas of golden delicious apples, pineapple and apricots. Medium bodied with a creamy mid-palate, this delightful wine offers flavors of peach and hints of toasty vanilla spice. Enjoy it on its own, or with soft cheeses, roast fowl and baked yams.

 Monte Oton Garnacha

The wine shows bright and full Garnacha notes of ripe black fruits, as well as raisins, blueberries, and plums, and it's even showing some overripeness. The mouth and finish are warm and relatively gentle. Drink now or in the next several years.

 Whitestone Vineyards Heavyweight Cabernet

In this award-winning Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, hints of dark fruits and subtle flavors of dark chocolate and tobacco entice the senses. The 2008 received 92 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, the 2009 follows in the footsteps. Our vineyard’s microclimate, which is perfect for growing wine grapes to make Bordeaux style wines, is truly reflected in this wine.

Whitestone Vineyards Heavyweight Chrdonnay

A sip or two of this rich, full-bodied Chardonnay “separates the pretenders from the contenders” proclaims its tasting notes. Filled with light lemony flavors and subtle floral aromas, there’s a delicate touch of oak for palate-pleasing pleasure. Heavyweight is vinted and bottled by White Stone Vineyards, Lodi, California.

 Mill River Plum Island White

Your perfect New England day describes Plum Island White. A day where the sun gods are smiling, the fish are biting and everything is right with the world. Enjoy
the aromas of pear, citrus and honey with fish, pizza or poultry any time of the year. Put on your shades and cast a line off the shore to Plum Island White. Relax. Rejuvenate. No worries.

Domaine Pichot Vouvray

Golden raisins on the nose and on the palate. Grape juicy, like table grapes concentrate. Easy to drink, already well-balanced with some elements of cloves, butter tarte tatin and a touch of maple sugar. Good fruit extension with some grapefruit and apple skin on the finish.

Aveleda Vinho Verde

This wine has a nice citrus color. Young and balanced, there is a sweet and delicate aroma marked by notes of fresh fruit. In the mouth, the wine shows to be fresh and vibrant.

 Deadbolt White Blend

This California red wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petit Syrah, and Shiraz. The exact percentages of each are under lock and key though…or behind the “dead bolt,” if you will! The wine itself is a deep ruby red in color with hints of purple as well. The aroma is of dark berries and just a hint of spice. If you like a jammy red wine, this is for you. The mouth feel is very smooth to boot. It would be a nice choice to serve at your dinner table, as it would be a crowd pleaser all around.

 San Quirico Vernaccia

Straw-yellow in color with stimulating aromas of spice, white flowers, dried apricots, fresh peach, and thyme; this silky, layered wine continues to unfold into the finish. Grown in hillside vineyards surrounding the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, this wine is composed entirely from Vernaccia grapes.  The grapes are chilled immediately following harvest and vinified at a very low temperature in cement vats, so that the final wine exudes a fresh, lively character.

Secateurs Chenin Blanc

A light but pure bouquet with lemon peel, grapefruit and hints of wet wool. The palate is crisp and vibrant on the entry with touches of lanolin and litchi nuts. This is so well balanced – uncomplicated but delicious.

Charles & Charles Chardonnay

The aromas start with notes of apple blossoms, lemon peel and subtle mango, and continue into mineral and wet slate notes with background of sweet pear, toasted spices and vanilla. On the palate you're first hit with crisp apple and orange rind with tremendous focus, and length. The wine walks a beautiful line between rich full flavors and finesse. There's luscious fruit and a touch of new oak without ever getting heavy or clumsy.

 Lindeman's Bin 65 Chardonnay

Bright and luminous to the eye, with orchard fruit and spice on the nose. Apples and vanilla on the palate, with citrus suggestions and minerals emerging in the finish. This is textbook Chardonnay that displays a surprisingly broad range of flavors, and is a diamond in the rough at this price point.

 Lindeman's Bin 50 Shiraz

The Linderman's Bin 50 has ripe generous blackberry fruit, black pepper on the finish and just a hint of oak. Australian Shiraz is one of the most popular wine styles and this is an excellent example.

 Monte Antico Red Blend

A perpetual Best Buy and a frequent selection for the Top 100 lists, Monte Antico is a Tuscan gem that over delivers vintage after vintage. Made from a selection of Tuscany’s finest vineyard sites, a blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, Monte Antico is Neil & Maria Empson’s tribute to Tuscany. Importers of exceptional Italian wines for over thirty years the Empsons have grown a strong affinity with Italian wines and its terrior. Maestro Franco Bernabei does the honors as winemaker, selecting the best grape lots, fermenting slowly and then aging the finished wine 1 year in oak (80% in Slavonian, 20% French) and at least 6 months in the bottle to achieve a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and a soft forward style that’s ideal with food. James Suckling just scored it 90 points saying "A fruity wine with black cherry, blueberry and hints of pepper. Full and velvety with a long and delicious finish. Acidity is well-integrated with the fruit. One of the best value wines from Tuscany. Screw cap. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.
