Gingerbread Stout and other Seasonal Craft Beers

For the beer drinkers on your holiday guest list we’ve got a variety of interesting seasonal beers. From Sam Adams we’ve got Merry Mischief, a dark gingerbread stout. Sam Adams says:

“This rich dark gingerbread stout entices with the aromas of the holidays, hinting at the merriment and spices within. The flavor of gingerbread comes alive beginning with the smooth sweetness and heartiness of dark roasted malts and a touch of wheat. But it’s the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.”

At 9.0% ABV, this is one unique winter brew that is sure to pack a hefty holiday punch. For a more traditional seasonal, our shelves are stocked with Magic Hat Winter Seasonal, New Belgium Snow Day, Red Hook Winter Hook, Shiner Cheer, Heavy Seas Winter Storm and Sam Adams Winter Lager; just to name a few.

Wine and Bubbles for the Holidays!

We have a variety of Sparkling Wines, Champagnes, Proseccos, and Cavas to choose from for your holiday celebrations.

One of the stars of our Sparkling Wine selection is Besserat de Bellefon Brut. A champagne from grapes grown in the Champagne region of  France. The winemaker describes the champagne as opening with “floral aromas” before revealing its fruitiness. Wine Spectator rates Besserat de Bellefon Brut 91 points.

We have the perfect red and white wine recommendations to pair with all your holiday dishes. Preparing turkey or ham? If you prefer red wine, we might suggest a Pinot Noir or Beaujolais; for a white wine, perhaps a Riesling or Pinot Blanc.

New Belgium Brewing & Alpine Beer Co. – Super IPA

New Belgium Alpine Beer Super IPAColorado’s New Belgium Brewing took the DC metro area by storm in 2011, and have continued to impress local craft beer connoisseurs.

For their Lips of Faith series, New Belgium has teamed up with various other craft breweries.

New Belgium worked with California’s  Alpine Beer Co. to bring us this “Super IPA”. Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial hops combine with Pale, c-80, Leanoidin, Acidulated and Carapils malts to create a powerful hop dominate IPA. At 9% ABV this is an IPA that commands respect!

The brewers describe the flavor as “Bitter and boozy baby! The malt sweetness tries so hard just to brush against the hop bitterness without countering its cause in this Super IPA!” The folks at BeerAdvocate.com tend to agree, rating Super IPA as “exceptional” with a score of 92 points.

Bodegas Volver – Paso A Paso Tempranillo

Paso A Paso Tempranillo

Tempranillo is a black grape, native to Spain, where it is popular for making red wine. The name is taken from the Spanish for “early”, in reference to it ripening weeks before other red grapes in the region.

Paso A Paso Tempranillo comes from Bodegas Volver, a winery in the best terrain Spain’s La Mancha region has to offer. According to the winemaker: “careful vineyard selections, long, slow fermentation and macceration followed by gentle aging for six months in French oak combine to create a wine with the optimum balance of fruit, spices and robust aromas.”

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar rates 2010 Paso A Paso Tempranillo 90 pts, describing it as having “fresh redcurrant and cherry flavors, very good energy with a long, spice-accented finish…A remarkable value.”
