Ballast Point Brewing – Sculpin IPA

From its humble beginnings of backyard brewing and a home brew supply store, Ballast Point Brewing has grown large enough to find its way from San Diego to our Rockville, Maryland store. Ballast Pointe says their Sculpin IPA is a testament to their origins.

“It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops.” Ballast Point, Sculpin IPA

At 7% alcohol and 70 IBUS Sculpin IPA packs a punch and tastes great, much like the poisonous spiked fish it takes its name from. The folks at BeerAdvocate seem to agree, with an incredible average score of 98 out over 4,700 reviews.

Brotherhood Riesling

Brotherhood Winery is located in the town of Hudson, NY, in the Hudson Valley Region. Its facilities include underground wine cellars dating back to the late 1830s. Being the closest winery to New York City, Brotherhood was among the first wineries to open their doors to tours, parties and events, drawing hundreds of thousands of people a year.

Village Beer and Fine Wine is proud to feature Brotherhood Riesling, which is featured on the White House Wine List. The winemaker’s notes:

“Our most popular wine, this Riesling has delicate aromas of pear, apple and fresh blossoms, and its off-dry character perfectly balanced by the crisp finish. Full-fruited with rich varietal character, this award-winning wine is a serious effort and yet a real crowd pleaser.”

Chateau Pesquie Terasses 2011

Chateau Pesquie is a family estate located in the Rhone Valley. Chateau Pesquie has proudly maintained “sustainable, responsible practices” for over twenty years. The vineyard uses only organic, humus-based fertilizers and prefers mechanical weed-killing to pesticides. Their main grapes are Syrah and Grenache, dominant varieties for the region. This month we are proud to feature a blend of those grapes, Chateau Pesquie’s 2011 Terasses.

The Wine Maker’s tasting notes:

Colour: deep ruby color.
Nose: intense nose with spicy notes(especially black pepper) and red berries.
Mouth: This very balanced wine offers very round tannins and fresh berriesaromas, with some floral and spicy flavors..
Food and wine pairing: Very easy to match. With simple dishes such as pizzas, kebabs, charcuterie, vegetable pies or salads to more ambitious cuisine like terrines, poultry, roasted or grilled meats.

The Rhone Report gives 2011 Terasses 91 points. “this brilliant value has no hard edges, silky tannin, and an elegant, ‘oh so drinkable’ profile.”
