State Line Liquors Rated #3 Bottle Shop in the WORLD!

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:

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!

New Arrivals

Well we have hit the trifecta!!!  These three barrels of whiskey arrived last week and are now available for sale, Crown Royal, Four Rose’s and Russell’s Reserve. 

Crown Royal Single Barrel  $54.99  750ml  This is a Coffey Rye Whiskey from a Coffey still that is among the finest components of Crown Royal and bottled at 103 proof to maintain its richness and body. This  is the finest expression of Crown Royal we have ever had in the store!!

Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel  $49.99  750ml  This is a classic example of what Jim Russell wants in a whiskey bearing his name. The barrels have the deep alligator char Jim prefers  and they produce rich flavor and deep color.  The mashbill of 75% corn, 13% rye and 12% malted barley adds a sweetness to the flavor that marries well with the char. It is bottled without chill filtering and  at 110 proof to maintain the intensity of flavour. Notes of toffee and vanilla mingle with burnt orange that carry to a big, round, soft finish.

Four Rose’s Single Barrel  $54.99  750ml  Well what can one say about Four Rose’s? Another exquisite expression from our favorite Bourbon distillery. The recipe for this one is OESO which has 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% malted barley and it produced a fruity whiskey with vanilla and caramel notes that roll into a full bodied finish.

Spirit of the Month

Saint Germain Elderflower Liqueur   $32.99 on sale for $29.99   750ml
