Items of Note:

 Now that we’ve finished drinking our annual allotment of Champagne until December, perhaps it’s an ideal time to reflect on our drinking vessel of choice for the bubblier wines.

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 are here; Glendalough Irish Triple Barrel, Crown Royal, Four Rose’s and Russell’s Reserve. 

Glendalough Triple Barrel Irish Whiskey $39.99 750ml We were able to buy a special barrel of new whiskey that our favorite Irish Craft distillery made available to us. Those who were at our tasting with Donal O’Gallachoir know the quality of the Double Barrel which is similar to this whiskey. The boys from Glendalough aged this whiskey for 42 months in American Bourbon barrels, 6 months in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks and then 6 more months in Madeira casks to create a complex flavor profile. Every Irish whiskey fan should try this as it offers incredible value in the Irish whiskey category.

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.
