Not Your Father’s Root Beer

not-dads-rootbeer-webNot Your Father’s Root Beer from Small Town Brewery is sweeping the country, with people going to great lengths to find it. We’ve got you covered at Village Beer and Fine Wine, we’ve stocked up in an attempt to meet the demand.

Just as the name suggests, this is Root Beer with a 5.9% alcohol kick. While this isn’t the first alcoholic root beer to hit the market, its the first to find such wide rapid success. So what has Small Town Brewery done differently?

Tim Kovac founded Small Town Brewery after twenty years exploring his family’s tradition of gruit brewing. Kovac’s ancestor’s brewed beer with certain herbs and spices added for flavor and bittering. He uses this concept to create Not Your Father’s Root Beer, with a combination of “wintergreen, sassafras bark, oak, vanilla, anise, and a host of other spices”.

With demand so high, Pabst Brewing Company has entered into an agreement with Small Town Brewery to distribute Not Your Father’s Root Beer across the country.

Stop by and pick up a six-pack today. We’ll try to keep some on the shelves for you.

Bryn Mawr Vineyards – Rosé of Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc

bryn-mwar-webWe have two great summer wines to highlight for July, both from Oregon’s Bryn Mawr Vineyards.

Bryn Mawr Vineyards – Pinot Blanc

While Pinot Blanc, a white variety of Pinot Noir, is not widely grown in Oregon, the folks at Bryn Mawr felt they had the perfect conditions for it when they planted the vines back in 2010. It turns out they were correct, as Bryn Mawr really delivers with a grape typically associated with cooler European climates.

The wine makers tasting notes include “honey, ginger, rose water, pear flowers, and mandarin…”

Bryn Mawr Vineyards – Rosé of Pinot Noir

The winemakers say their rosé is very “intentional”, that many other  rosés are simply leftovers from red wine making. Bryn Wawr pulls their rosé from the early stages of red wine fermentation.

The wine maker’s description includes “rich and creamy notes combine with fresh raspberry, strawberry, mandarin, and orange zest.”



Ballast Point Habanero Sculipn India Pale Ale

balast-point-habenero-webMaybe you’ve tried Ballast Point Sculpin India Pale Ale. Many of our customers have. But have you tried it brewed with Habanero Peppers? We’ve got a supply of Habenero Sculpin, ready for your summer barbeques.

Ballast Point has this to say about Habanero Sculpin:

“While its bright fruit notes and hoppy bite has made the original one of our favorites, this version takes that balance of flavors to the next level with the citrusy, floral heat of habaneros.”

Our customers tell us this one is hot, but not too hot.

You’ve been warned.

Also great for summer, we’re now offering Ballast Point’s original Sculpin India Pale Ale in six-packs of cans. Think how surprised your guests will be to see those in the cooler next to the Budweiser.
