Beer By B.United…
D‘UVA BEER - A beer made with grapes? - Say what?
Valter Loverier strives to make beers that are special while pushing the boundaries of “extreme” beers but are still perfectly balanced all while using only locally sourced ingredients. His beers can surprise even the most curious palate.
OLD ENGINE OIL ENGINEER’S
Intensely flavored but ridiculously smooth, this is our fabulous Old Engine Oil brewed up to 9% ABV. Originally created as the base of our award-winning Ola Dubh, our master-brewer enjoyed it so much he felt it deserved its own release.
SCHLENKERLA OAK SMOKE
In the middle of the old part of Bamberg, directly underneath the cathedral is the Schlenkerla Brewery and Tavern. It was first mentioned in 1405, and now ran by the Trum family in the 6th generation. It is the origin of the Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer, a Bamberg Specialty.
+A Few Surprises… And Limited Bottles We will Open for Sampling…
Wine Featuring Winebow Select…
Bottex Bugey Cerdon
“Ever so slightly sweet, it makes a delightful party wine… Vin du Bugey-Cerdon is an unusual non-vintage sparkling red wine from the Savoie in eastern France. A blend of 80% Gamay with 20% Poulsard (a local grape), Patrick Bottex’s ‘La Cueille’ is a deep rose in color with a lovely taste of wild strawberries. Ever so slightly sweet, it makes a delightful aperitif, or party wine. And with just 8% alcohol in it, you can feel free to open a bottle for an afternoon dessert fest. Perfect for garden parties. Pair it with strawberry shortcake, cookies and even soft, ripe cheeses.”
Terranoble Classic Sauvignon Blanc
“Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc harvested in March from various vineyards in the Central Valley. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks for two months prior to release from the winery.
This Sauvignon Blanc , offers you a wine with an attractive yellow color with greenish tones. It has intense aromas of tropical fruits, especially pineapple. It is a very fresh wine, dry and equilibrated. It has a good structure and a nice natural acidity which has a long permanence in the mouth. Ideal as an aperitif, with seafood and fish.”
The Rhone Gang Le Hold Up
“The Rhône Gangsters made an unpredictable but successful « hold-up » : they robbed delicious Pinot Noir and Grenache, and reinvented one of the coolest blends ever. Hold-up is a hedonistic wine, fresh and mineral, intense in the mouth, offering sexy notes of red fruits and Kirsch.”
Castano Monastrell “Bodegas Castano’s unoaked 2010 Monastrell (100%) is a glass-coating opaque purple color. Asian spices, incense, black fruits and chocolate compose the nose of this juicy, fruity, plush offering. Lengthy on the palate and well-balanced, this outstanding value will provide enjoyment for another 3-4 years.”
Tortoise Creek “Cherokee Lane” Cabernet Sauvignon
“Cherokee Lane” Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with aromas and flavors of red and black cherries supported by vanilla and cedar nuances. It is beautifully balanced with both fruit and tannins. An ideal pairing with grilled meats, sausages or stews.
Mixology & Booze Featuring Dave Rudman & Sailor Jerry…
Old-fashioned punches have made a comeback on the bar scene, and rightfully so. Punch fell out of style in the United States decades ago as a result of a confluence of factors. The temperance movement was growing. Advances in the distillation and aging of liquors meant they didn’t need heavy manipulation to be enjoyed. And, perhaps most destructive of all, people started acting like they were too busy to enjoy a punch.You can put all those college memories of technicolor swill mixed in plastic tubs behind you. Punch is a history-steeped; festive family of drinks sipped by everyone from Jonathan Swift to Charles Dickens to Jane Austen to George Washington.
