Club Card Wine Special: 9 April 2015

Domaine Sainte-Eugenie 2011 Corbieres Rouge
Full Price $9.99 — Club Card Special $6.99

If you’re unfamiliar with the wine of Corbieres, now is the opportune time to make their acquaintance. Domaine Sainte-Eugenie (of Robert Kacher Selections) is a fine example made not unlike a wine from the Cotes du Rhone with a blend of 40% old vine Carignan and 30% each of Grenache and Syrah. The grapes for this wine are grown from 300 – 650 feet of elevation in south facing vineyards where the temperature is moderated by Mediterranean winds.

The virtue of this southern French red is its medium weight fruit forward versatility. And having a case of wine like this in the house is always useful because it pairs with a plethora of food and you never know when you’ll need a bottle of red for unexpected (or thirsty) house guests.


WINE OF THE WEEK: 5 March 2015

Chateau d’Orschwihr 2012 Bollenberg Riesling
$17.99 ($15.29 @ mixed case discount)

The eponymous chateau from the town of Orschwihr in Alsace produces some excellent wine, this Riesling being merely one of them. Hubert Hartmann, proprietor extraordinaire, quietly but meticulously makes his wines without the use of pesticides and is philosophically opposed to the idea of chaptalization because he believes wine should be able to express its appellation without the use of sugar.

Sauvignon BlancNEW! Club Card Wine Special
The Not-Quite-Pouilly-Fume Sauvignon Blanc

Full Price $19.99 — Club Card Special $14.99
Magali Metenier’s Sauvignon Blanc goes by the unassuming and not terribly glorious Vins de Pays de Val de Loire appellation, but talk about the edge of glory… Read More!

wine-perrier-fils-roussette-de-savoieJean Perrier & Fils 2011 Roussette de Savoie

Full Price $14.99 — Club Card Special $9.99
West of Lake Bourget near the Swiss border in eastern France, vineyards planted to the altesse grapes enjoy an idyllic spot in the rolling hills of Savoie… Read More!

Max's Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Max’s Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Feb. 17, 2015 –By Steve Fogelman, City Paper. “Last month, just two establishments in Maryland were honored as “Top Places to Have a Beer in the World” by the crowd-sourced annual survey. Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore and State Line Liquors in Elkton made the cut, which makes sense, as both are hallowed Free State beer grounds for aficionados. I caught up with the owners of both businesses by phone while they were coincidentally on separate and simultaneous vacations in Florida earlier this month. The traits these businesses share, such as family and dedication to the craft scene, are the underpinnings of their success… READ the FULL ARTICLE at:

The $5 – 64oz Growler Fill is back! Check the Board for current selection(s).

What is a “Tap Social?”

Well, a Tap Social is similar to a “Rep Tasting”… a casual get-together for sampling beers from a single brewery and are generally held on Friday afternoons from 4pm to 6pm.  Most of the time we charge a nominal fee to “participate” in this 2 hour social. For that fee, you usually get a free glass along with unlimited sampling! The beers are generously discounted and often the reps will have giveaways on top of it!

Spirit of the Month

Sipsmith London Dry Gin / $39.99 750ml,  Club Card Special $35.99

Finally some warm weather and a reason to buy some gin! This month’s spirit is distilled in a copper pot/column combo in London and it produces a very balanced dry gin with mellow juniper and a citrus finish. This is an outstanding artisanal small batch gin at an affordable price. Pair this with Fever Tree Indian Tonic, sit back and bring on the summer.    — Rick

New Arrivals

Makers Mark Cask Strength Bourbon / $59.99  750mlMakers-Cask-Strength-Hi-Res-1940x1293

We have waited patiently for this whiskey since November, when they released a small amount for bars only. It is a cask strength single cask bottling of Makers and the proof will vary from 108 to 112 proof, depending on the cask.

We look forward to trying this one ourselves. Limited, but we have it in decent supply at this time! 

monkey47Monkey 47 Schwartzwald Dry Gin / $41.99  375ml

Yes it is expensive, but you owe it to yourself to try this if you are a gin fan. Monkey 47 is made with 47 botanicals (including Cranberries) and bottled at 47 proof, hence the name.  

This makes the ultimate Negroni.
